Tom Bird is a human living in the beautiful city of Amsterdam. Sometimes he's labeled an ‘art director’, sometimes a ‘writer’, both times people give him money to make things for them. He often makes stuff for himself too. You can find both below, and less vague credentials on his LinkedIn...




Bigger Than A Wall
[2017]



Donald Trump’s campaign for presidency unearthed some deeply divisive views, and his intentions to build a border wall between the US and Mexico whipped the media into a frenzy.

I thought what if the people could build a wall too; only a wall of unity, and in a place where Trump’s hateful views were being propogated: under the hashtag #makeamericagreatagain.

Concept & Design: Tom Bird
Strategy: Jakenna Gilbert & Jess Perri

















Did it succeed? Hell no.

The 1,692 people who posted a brick were no match for the flood of activity that Trump’s inauguration day generated. But I still love the idea nonetheless.





Thanks for stopping by. We should hang out...
