CINCINNATI, OH, March 02, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ -- David Allen has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value.

A graphic designer, Mr. Allen has distinguished himself as the inventor of several sustainable paper-based outdoor products for wild birds. He attended the Columbus College of Art and Design, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration and Advertising in 1971. While walking to work at his advertising agency job, Mr. Allen had the idea for a disposable paper birdhouse, which would evolve into the GreenBird House -- a bird house made from recycled paper and other natural materials. His research showed that birders believe it is important to provide shelter for birds due to the loss of shelter because of urban sprawl, deforestation and global warming. His GreenBird House is a very earth friendly way to do that. He then designed and added other natural products to the GreenBird line including Seed Pies, the GreenBird Nesting Material Box and Real Milk Paint kits. Since 1912 Mr. Allen has been the designer and sole employee of GreenBird LLC.
Since his graduation from CCAD Mr. Allen has held positions at various firms and advertising agencies, usually as Corporate Art Director or Vice President. These include Greenfield Printing and Publishing, Super Food Services, Weir McBride Advertising, Applied Communications and McNally Communications.
Mr. Allen maintained activity as the vice president and creative director of the Jaap-Orr Company of Cincinnati from 1998 until the invention of the GreenBird House in 2012. He attributes his success to his dedication to positivity, keeping and open and curious mind and an active imagination. His penchant for always enjoying his work and the people he works with has always been a great factor. In his civic endeavors, Mr. Allen is active as a Voice of Hope for the American Cancer Society. He is past president of the Waynesville Chamber of Commerce in 1996 and the Waynesville Area Rotary Club. He was the 1995 Chairman of the Ohio Sauerkraut Festival. GreenBird LLC is the winner of The Best of Cincinnati Award, 2019, for product and services due to how they impact the environment.
