A graduate of Linfield College in art and visual culture, Ryan Gerdes is a successful designer and screen-printer working in Portland. He recently started his own screen-printing studio called 3Bird Press.

Ryan says of his work,

“I’m a digital artist, I spend 50 hours a week at a corporate job creating corporate imagery.  The thing I love about screen printing, my true passion, is the handmade quality—when there is a “mistake”, I embrace it.  Like mis-registered skulls or the ink not quite covering all the the substrate.  I say, if you really want a perfect image, clean and crisp and the same as the one you saw online, buy a digital print.”
