Mark Bird is a freelance illustrator and designer based in Manchester in the UK.

Mark currently divides his time between producing work for the editorial, children’s publishing and greeting card markets as well as developing his own range of illustrated prints and gifts which can be found in the store.

Often taking inspiration from imagination and childhood, he works in a style that is lovingly crafted, whimsical and evocative. Relishing a challenge, Mark is happiest when pouring his imagination onto paper.


Over the years Mark has worked for a number of clients including the Wall Street Journal, Which? Magazine, Cambridge University Press, Quarto Children’s books, Kiehl’s and the BBC.
