Herschel Supply Company, the maker of backpacks, bags, travel goods and accessories, named Jon Warren as its design director. Warren is an accomplished designer, most recently serving as the head of design lifestyle for Vans, a company at which he has spent the last 12 years.

Warren will be based at the new Herschel Supply design studio in Los Angeles. He will be working closely with company founders, Jamie and Lyndon Cormack, and the design team at the Vancouver headquarters to shape the future of product at the Herschel Supply Company.

“Jamie & Lyndon share the same D.I.Y. philosophy that I carry; I think it all comes from growing up doing what you love. Herschel Supply was something that they took on themselves and I’ve always respected the path they took. Working at Vans I had the ability to work and learn from some of the most talented designers, creatives, and business partners in the world. With Herschel I feel that I could bring my experience to the table and collaborate on future projects that allow us to push the brand in directions that only partnering with other like-minded creatives could offer. I am honored to be part of the Herschel family and look forward to all the creativity ahead,” said Warren.

“There are few people you meet in life with as much creativity, passion and respect in the industry as Jon. He brings a wealth of experience and talent to our team,” said Jamie Cormack.

“ We are a company that celebrates design, and it is with great pleasure we announce this amazing addition. I have admired Jon as a designer for over a decade, and it is my privilege to have known him all this time as a friend. Herschel Supply has just added serious horsepower to our push in design and brand development. This will amplify and strengthen our voice, and will translate to growth in sales,” said Lyndon Cormack.

Based in Vancouver, Canada, Herschel Supply Co. manufactures the finest quality backpacks, bags and accessories with a goal to create timeless product with a fine regard for detail.
