Mark Bird Headshot.2.png



In 1991, I joined Jensen Design Associates in Long Beach, California as a senior designer on the Apple Computer, Canon Computer Systems Division, New Oji Paper of Tokyo and Toshiba accounts.

In 1995, I launched Bird Design. We produced campaigns, led teams, developed corporate brand identities, created web sites, designed product literature systems and provided project management, strategy and planning for local start ups to Fortune 500 clients.


Numerous local, regional and national design awards. My work has also appeared in Graphis Packaging, Print Magazine, Communication  Arts and Grand Rapids Magazine. 

In 2019 I teamed up with Conan Venus and Company where I currently function as Creative Director.



Additionally, I taught  in the Graphic Design program at Michigan State University from 2015 to 2020. Some of the courses included design thinking, corporate branding, color theory, basic and advanced typography, Design Center (a course with real life client experiences), design principals, and Design 1 and 2. 

In 2002, I co-founded Polishing Center, a portfolio and career development program with industry veteran Frank Blossom. Our primary purpose was to assist newcomers to the advertising and design industry in their pursuit of improving professional and creative standards while  making connections for potential employment.


I hold a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from Kendall College of Art and Design and studied at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
