Robin Noguier, French designer met, interviewed and took portraits of one creative in each country he traveled to. He wanted to show that everyone has an interesting story to tell wherever they come from by shining a light on talents and design industries that are sometimes under-represented.
I knew I wanted to do something to help people while traveling the world and I realized that I could use my design skills to do so. I decided to meet, photograph and interview one creative in each country I visited. I asked them about their story, their process and the industry they are working in. I later spent hours transcripting those interviews in order to create articles which I hope will give visibility to the creatives I interviewed and their industry. by showing several creative processes and ways to work, I also hope it will inspire designers from all over the globe.
With Esperanto, I want to show that we all speak the same language when it comes to design. I want to prove that everyone has an interesting story to tell wherever they come from. I want to show that we have more similarities that bring us together than differences that pull us apart. I want to shine a light on talents and design industries that are sometimes under-represented.
To build a side project, it’s essential to underestimate the amount of work required. It took me almost two years to do this project and I don’t regret any second I put into it. There is a lot of countries out there I haven’t been to yet so Esperanto will forever be a work in progress.
The world is not as scary as people tend to think.
Work hard, travel harder.
