New Design for Mini-Computer Speakers: Plethora of Rainbow Circles, Geometric

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 27, 2011 by birdy27

I love creating clean geometric designs! Sometimes it’s all about pattern, color, and shape. These types of patterns can make a strong statement. They look so good with contemporary decor. And this design on these new mini-computer speakers will make others take notice. There are lots of circles in different colors alternating with rows of circles in shades of gray. Click on the link to learn more about these speakers and to buy. They make great gifts, especially for that new graduate going off to college. Chirp, chirp!

Designing Work Is Never Done!

Posted in Birdy27's world of design with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 12, 2010 by birdy27

Whew! When I started my t-shirt business, the only thing I really knew how to do was write slogans/concepts. I had no idea what I was getting myself into! If you had told me five years ago that I’d also become a graphic designer, that I’d be selling products with my designs on them at a craft fair/flea market, that I’d learn how to build a website, I would have denied it all.

One thing I haven’t mastered is getting designs ready for various holidays; you have to think ahead in order to get the timing just right. And I never noticed how the holidays just keep on comin’. I find myself scrambling to do my holiday-themed designs early enough.

Now that Valentine’s Day is almost here, it’s time to start working on my 2010 St. Patrick’s Day designs. I’m decidedly not Irish and that has been a source of inspiration. I’ll post a few of them soon.

Since I started working with online print-on-demand companies, I’ve actually sold hundreds of  my slogans/concepts, the majority I’ve designed myself.  Scores of people I’ll probably never meet are wearing t-shirts with my designs and I’m eternally grateful to them all. I’ve been lucky enough to meet some of my fans in person at the craft fair/flea market. It touches me when someone likes what I’ve created enough to hand me their hard-earned money. And the coolest thing is that they walk away smiling because I’ve created something they value. I LOVE it!

But designing work is never done, so I better get back to work. I tried to add some images in this post, but, um, I failed. Until i figure out how to do it right, you can find my designs at:

– Birdy27’s Zazzle shop:

– Who U Be Tees:

Oh, I should also say that my company name is ALA International. Go to the ALA International website to get to all of my shops and to see some of my cool designs.

I haven’t added anything lately to Kool Kids Tees and I Shop I Am Tees, but I’ll try to get to that soon. Go to my ALA International website for the latest Birdy27 info or bookmark this blog. Chirp, chirp!


post-thanksgiving–very busy

Posted in Birdy27's world of design with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 3, 2009 by birdy27

well, i didn’t meant to go so long without a post, but i was so busy pre-thanksgiving and i’m still busy post-thanksgiving. so much designing to do before the holidays! i’m creating some custom gifts for friends and family as well as my usual task of creating more designs i hope the public will likey.

in addition to creating t-shirt designs, i started creating greeting and note cards. stressful, but kind of fun once the dimensions weren’t so much of an issue. now i have a mom’s b-day card with complete verse, a couple of xmas cards with verses, a couple of kwanzaa cards, some cards with shoes, and some other note cards. kind of cool. i had a couple of card verses published a while ago, so it’s interesting to now be the writer and the designer.

i’m also now designing stationery. my mom loves chocolate brown, so, for her b-day, i created a nice classic stationery design in chocolate brown, tan, and beige. she loves butterflies, so i designed some cute butterfly wings and they are kind of flying across the paper. she loved it! and i just finished a pig stationery design for a family friend who loves pigs.

i still love doing designs for apparel, but it’s kind of nice to branch out. this is gift-giving time, so it’s nice to have options, don’t you think? 

today is the last day of the extended cyber monday sale for my online items (not through my zazzle shop), so i’m trying to get a lot of stuff done. an entrepreneur’s work is never done.
