Arts + Oaks came from a place of admiration and love. There’s Art behind every craft. If you take a closer look, you will find a creative mind behind every product, recipe, home, project, image, speech, and single detail of our lives. I am determined to use as many art forms as possible to share the stories behind inspiring brands.
Oaks translate into Spanish as “Robles”—my last name. I wanted to include something in honour to my dad, as he was one of my biggest creative inspirations and role model. The Oaks also play homage to nature, a big part of my life and where I feel most alive—we owe everything to Mother Earth! If we dig deeper, the word Oaks reminds me of all the trees that were sacrificed for creating new books. Speaking of which, I am committed to use recycled paper as much as possible and biodegradable inks in our books. We also plant a tree for every book sold through the program onetreeplanted.
Oaks are strong, resilient, enduring, tall, deeply rooted, lush and vibrant. As a creative studio, we want to hold the same characteristics within our industry; offering freshness and colour, building relationships based on trust, and providing a sense of protection, unconditional love and support to all the brands we work with.
