Ki is good energy

Ki is a life force. A flow. A state of mind. The juju of the universe. Kiki and Michael are two designers focused on wellness, education, and environmental and social justice.

We put our energy into projects that lift the human spirit and nudge people toward a better, happier, healthier life.
