Meet our creative director, Kent Henderson.
When he’s not bringing his massive design skills to Den Aviary, this Illinois native is up to his elbows in art projects at his letterpress studio.
What’s up with letterpress?
I’m a printmaker - I do letterpress and silkscreen. I like to transform my design skills into inky art projects. Plus, I look good in an apron!
You grew up in Illinois. What’s the farthest you’ve ever been from here?
I went to Amsterdam over a Christmas holiday once.
Cool! Is that your favorite place?
I love the Wisconsin Dells. Any Wisconsin destination - we went all the time as kids. I don’t think I have a specific “place,” I just remember walking around doing a lot of putt-putt golf.
