Martin Bird

After graduating from Saint Martin’s School of Art, Martin worked in London agencies D4 Design and Sedley Place Limited. In the early 90’s he decided to return to Leicestershire and joined JKD working mainly in exhibition design and manufacture. He subsequently moved to Kilvington Design, working on corporate identity and quality print projects. Martin and Marc founded Birdhouse in 1995.

Marc Stackhouse

Graduating from Leicester Polytechnic in the 80s (now DeMontfort University), Marc spent 10 years as an all round freelance designer with involvement in a broad portfolio of design disciplines and projects contributing to the ‘hands-on’ depth and experience of Birdhouse. Two years at Blyth Lee Associates overseeing design and production preceded the collaboration with Martin to form Birdhouse Design in 1995.

Conrad McEwan

After graduating from De Montfort University in the early 90s, Conrad gained a wide variety of experience in a number of design studios, culminating in a studio manager’s position at Jessops of Leicester. During this time, his illustration skills became more and more in demand, and he decided to leave and focus on his freelance illustration. He has worked closely with Birdhouse over many years and continues to do so, having proved to be a valuable asset to company.
