The founders of SVPER ORDINARY (Josh Wills, Tran Wills, Pedro Barrios and Bryan Cavanagh) all extend from established backgrounds in art, design and fashion. Together the group form a distinct creative point-of-view and are respected as leaders in the Denver creative community. Inspired by a vast network of contemporary creative’s, the partners look to collaborate with local, national and international artists and designers.
