BILL BURGESS
I was born a small child...

Now that I’ve partially grown up I’ve found myself helping organizations percieve, articulate and (re)design their story. Each project is different, but it always includes a research process, and analysis of the core mission and the obstacles to integration.  

I've worked on a variety of projects for Apple, frog Design, TEDx Austin, JCPenney and others. I’ve helped startups pitch their services to companies like Southwest Airlines, Best Buy, XGames, Microsoft Research, Top Golf, Bio-Tronik and others. 

I love to ski and mountain bike. I write electronic music and do digital art to keep the saw sharp. I’m always open to new thinking and the exhange of ideas...

Thanks for visiting…  







DESIGN ENGAGEMENTS
