Birds founder and creator Stuart Cox
As a designer, what made me focus on birds?
“Coming from a family of birdwatchers it’s in my DNA, but we’re a nation of bird nuts so I’m in good company!”
“I grew up watching birds in a suburban garden, and I Like Birds is driven by my passions for nature, design, nostalgia for childhood and the ‘stuff’ my mum collected.”
“There’s a near universal appeal to birds and, whether you’re urban or rural, they’re always around and always raise a smile.”
“Their unique behaviours, the often overlooked but colourful plumage of British birds, and the fact that we assign meaning to them either personally or via folklore. They provide a rich and fun source material. For some reason all of those elements resonate with our fans.”
“It’s always good to know that what you do makes people happy.”
