“I trend towards minimalist, functional design and I am inspired by people and products that prove simple design doesn’t have to be bland.”

Nothing like a trip to Central America to put some things in perspective. After a few years in advertising and one trip that changed his perspective on his career and life in general, Oliver founded ESPEROS to put his love of smart design and of giving back to good use. Partnering with Fonkoze, a micro-finance organization in Haiti that works to empower women and families, money from each ESPEROS bag goes to provide one child in need with a year’s worth of schooling. ESPEROS also uses local artisans in the area to make the bags so it’s not only the children they’re helping through the sales of these awesome bags, they’re also providing jobs for the working generation. The idea is that each ESPEROS bag carries not only what you put in it, but the hope of some pretty bright futures for the families of Central America.
