Talking Brand (& Beer) at Birds

May 3, 8:00am - 9:30am CDT. Hosted at Birds Barbershop


About this FieldTrip

Join us at the original Birds Barbershop on South Lamar for an interactive discussion with co-founder Michael Portman.

He’ll discuss the Birds origin story and how a sense of place has been intrinsic to the design of every Birds, why each one looks different within the brand language, and how that hurts and helps scalability.

Now at ten shops with one in Houston, Michael will host a candid conversation about franchising (they don’t), taking outside money (they haven’t), keeping marketing in-house, and failures and lessons learned over the past thirteen years Birds has been in operation.

Come armed with questions about this homegrown Austin brand!
