Heather Burke, Creative Director 


Carolyn Marsden, Designer

"I absolutely love working with Heather. Her design work on ICA publications and invitations is well thought through, beautifully executed and extremely creative.
She has great attention to detail
and offers insights when needed.
I highly recommend her!" 

-Leila Simon Hayes, Former Creative Director at
The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston

"Working with Heather is always a joyful, energizing experience! Her enthusiasm is contagious and she is fully committed to seeing a project through to the end, despite the inevitable bumps in the road. She is also an effortless and gracious collaborator and continually pushes herself to uncover multiple design solutions." 

-Jenna Talbott, Editor and Chief, New England Home Magazine
and former design partner (BURKE+TALBOTT)

"BURKE+TALBOT were a revelation as we worked to revamp the look and feel of the alumni magazines at Tufts University. They helped us create a powerful design that was flexible enough to tie the six titles together as a single brand while allowing for each individual publication to have its own distinct voice. Burke+Talbott are terrific collaborators who overflow with ideas and creativity, and who are, quite simply, ridiculously talented."

-John Wolfson, Editor and Chief, Boston College Magazine
(Former Editor and Chief Tufts Magazine)
