The creativity and design behind Carolina Tree Care’s website are with the following BURKE employees: Art Director, Mariana Rojas, graphically designed the website; Debbi Lawrence, Front-End Web Developer, developed website code and format; Videographer, Rick Guile, shot and created the Carolina Tree Care video; and Account Manager, Morgan Paterwich, managed and oversaw all duties for the creation of Carolina Tree Care’s new responsive website.

Mackenzi Guffey, Residential and Commercial Coordinator at Carolina Tree Care states, “I know I can speak for the whole team at Carolina Tree Care when I say how amazed we are at our new website. It is everything we could have hoped for and BURKE delivered. Thank you to Morgan Paterwich and her team for making a remarkable video and website that was done professionally!” Mariana Rojas, BURKE’s Art Director, who is responsible for the creation of the updated website explains, “The objective was to create a clean, simple and responsive site that reflected the type of personalized and customized service offered by CTC. With the need of making all sites responsive comes the challenge of designing pages that don’t look generic or template-like- the CTC site is unique thanks to the color palette, customized shapes and tree textures used. We were also able to use custom photography which is always a plus because it shows the audience/possible customer’s trustworthy service that is real.” About Carolina Tree Care Located in Concord, North Carolina, Carolina Tree Care has been providing high quality tree services since 1987.

BURKE Provides Cover Design for Jeff Dudan’s Book, “Hey, Coach!”, While Dick Butkus Speaks At The Charlotte Touchdown Club
Every year The Charlotte Touchdown Club’s sponsor and the Charlotte community look forward to The Touchdown Club’s luncheon series, which consist of 5 luncheons a year with speeches from Panther representatives, college coaches, and present and former professional players. BURKE has been a Pro Bowl Sponsor for The Charlotte Touchdown Club for many years and is excited to attend. This year the luncheon consisted of a speaker and a book signing with BURKE as the source of design. On Friday, October 30th, 2015, The Touchdown Club held their speaker luncheon series at The Westin Hotel in Charlotte, North Carolina. This luncheon’s speaker was Dick Butkus, Chicago Bears Hall-of-Fame Linebacker. Butkus, now in his 70’s, answered some Q&A’s and talked about how his NFL career has made him honest and humble because of the way the NFL took advantage of him. As expected, it was truly a genuine and inspirational speech. Jeff Dudan, Advantaclean’s CEO and a client here at BURKE, showcased his book, “Hey, Coach!” with a book signing before the luncheon. Burke was responsible for designing the book cover. Mariana Rojas, BURKE’s Art Director, states, “We created the cover and the illustrations that went into each chapter. I read the book and came up with different ideas for the cover. At the end, he chose a simpler cover that includes all the motivational phrases that the coach in the book tells the players in his baseball little league for encouragement”. It was a detailed creative process that had Rojas digging deep and studying Dudan’s words to find her inspiration for the finished book cover. At BURKE, we stay detailed and determined with each project to make it what we see it as and what our clients end up happy with.
