Need inspiration for your evolution as an entrepreneur? Well that’s coming to your ears in this week’s episode, which features a conversation with Arkansas-based designer and maker Alyssa Bird. Well-known in the indie design scene that’s bubbled up online in recent years, Alyssa has garnered fans with her brightly-colored, upbeat accessories and jewelry — not to mention her fun, authentic personality that comes through in her regular Instagram videos and social media.
When you’re entrenched in one business, it can be easy to stay there even when you foresee challenges to growth and scale. Earlier this year, facing some of those challenges, Alyssa made the bold move to launch a new business that carries her commitment to upcycling and making forward in a form that has the potential to reach many more people through ingeniously cute wall art kits that pair deadstock fabric with wood cut frames anyone at any age can use to craft their own eco-friendly art.
Listen in for her story and how she’s building a new company that continues her path in a whole new way.

Meet Alyssa:
Pictokits founder Alyssa Bird spent 3 years in the Los Angeles fashion industry and saw a desperate need to reduce the waste from clothing production. Her innovation, mission for upcycling, and love for learning reached a turning point when she developed a new mixed-media art concept by merging the rescued textiles with laser cut wood.
Picto Kits is an elevated hands-on experience of art and education that requires no previous training and delivers a playful adventure inspiring individuals of any age.
