Meet Kerry, the Artist Behind Bird's the Word

February 17, 2020

Hi! My name is Kerry, and I'm the artist behind Bird's the Word. My background is in graphic design, and I design all of the products here myself. It started as a search for the perfect graphic tee: eye-catching design, soft fabric, and just the right fit. When I struggled to find what I was looking for, I decided to make it myself.

So I designed a t-shirt. Then I designed another. And another. I was having fun with the design process, and before I knew it I had an entire collection of shirt designs. I've since developed some patterns that I've applied to several products in the shop, and I'm always exploring new ways to design something new.

While I'm the only artist here, my family is very involved. My husband and kids provide feedback on my designs, research new business tools, and help me curate my collections. I've adopted the habit of using the word "we" to describe our company, since it's a family thing. If a design isn't Team Robb-approved, it doesn't make its way to the site.

We use print on demand technology to create our products. Our suppliers use direct-to-garment (DTG) printers to transfer the designs directly onto clothing and other goods. This helps the environment by eliminating the need to keep inventory, so there's never any old stock items to send to the landfill – we don't make our products until you order them.

I'll be adding new designs as often as I can, so make sure to follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest) and subscribe to our newsletter using the form below. Thanks for visiting Bird's the Word!
