ALIESKA ROBLES

CREATIVE DIRECTOR + FOOD PHOTOGRAPHER + BOOK DESIGNER

I’ve moved on from the freelance world into a business venture titled Arts + Oaks. I partnered with like-minded individuals passionate about design, food and arts to aim further and speak louder. As a creative team, we specialize in coffee table books and brand storytelling. Our mission is to continue sharing stories, inspiring others, preserving legacies and capturing meaningful memories through graphic design, photography and film—crafting timeless books that will survive the instant era.

ABOUT ME

I like being outdoors, working with my hands, looking for inspiration in small details, eating real food, reading educational stuff, smiling for no reason, learning new things, being present and sharing stories of inspiring people. I am a little bit old school, still use a notebook, believe in the power of kindness, don't drink heavy spirits, move around with a bike and grew up in the Walkman era. If I could change something in modern society, it will be the time we spend in front of screens and how technology is making us less human, more connected than ever, and yet more distant to one another.

"The success of every project lies in the heart of the makers and the creative eyes of the artists who capture their passion.”

WHY I MAKE BOOKS

There's something magical about books, the sweet smell of ink and paper, the excitement of a new chapter, the improvised book markers and the memories that stay on the little corners of each page.

In 2017 I wrote my first book. A tribute to culinary experiences, antiques, ingredients, chefs, artisans, traditions and people who eat together. I had to wear many hats to make this project happen, from project manager to producer, creative director, brand specialist, designer, photographer, stylist, videographer, writer and also publisher! I loved the creative process so much “from concept to page” that making more books and sharing inspiring stories became the main focus of my career.

I’d love to share all this knowledge and passion for books with you, helping you preserve your legacy too!

Books are special… and so is the people who read them!
