George Guest began as a personal project exploring the balance between function and style. Since our beginnings, our premier product, the Hillside Backpack, has gone through several iterations insuring that no detail is over looked. We’ve brought this design philosophy to all of our bags and accessories as we continue to strive to provide you with unique products of the highest quality and usability.

The Team


George Keeler, Creative Director

As the creative visionary behind all of George Guest, George’s ability to take standard designs and put a unique twist on them shines through in all of the George Guest products. As an avid outdoorsman, George has brought a fresh perspective to refined style.

Alexander Schultz, Business Director

High school friend Alex has worked alongside George since 2009 to create a lasting brand that stands out amongst the crowd. Alex’s close work with the design team, production team, and our consumers has helped George Guest create products and a brand that reflect today’s unique travel needs.




Wallace joined the team in September 2009 at 5lbs. soaking wet, but has since grown into the unofficial George Guest mascot and loyal companion. His expertise in destroying small stuffed animals, finding the perfect spot on the couch, and of course overseas marketing has made him an invaluable member of the team.

Hovercraft Studio, Branding Design

Where would we be without friends? We linked up with Hovercraft during the Summer of 2010 with the seemingly simple need of further developing our brand. Since then we’ve come to find that their passion for unique designs and business reflect ours. Hovercraft has since become not only our friends, but an integral part of our team contributing enormously to George Guest along our journey.
