Let me get this out of the way first: We are still burkeMICHAEL+.
We’re the same team, same owner (yours truly, #WomanOwned), and we still provide the same excellent services you’ve come to know and love (making some assumptions here, but we think if you’re reading this, you probably love us). The only thing that’s changed is our website and our logo.
“But why?” you scream. “Why change at all? What was wrong with the old logo?”
First of all, we’re right here, no need to shout. Secondly, as a firm that prides itself on staying current with design and furniture trends, we recognized that our old look was getting a little stale.
Our old logo came exclusively in shades of gray. Gray has had its day, and that day was roughly between 2017 - 2022. Interior designers are moving past cold Scandinavian monochrome color schemes back into warmer, more vibrant territory. And we’re right there with them.
Don’t worry, we’re not regressing to the orange-and-brown-everything palette of the 1970s, and you definitely won’t see us heralding the return of 1990s loud plastic pinks and teals (what were we thinking?). This move back toward color is just us recognizing that it’s okay to put a little personality into your palette, and that just a little bit of color goes a long way.
To that point, our new palette (dark green and gold) is a reflection of who we are: refined, welcoming, knowledgable, and fun. Our palette doesn’t shout at you (again, we’re right here), but it does stand up and look you in the eye and offer a friendly smile.
Ditto for our new website. We built it to feel a little less in-your-face and a little more airy. But all the goods are still there: samples of our work, introductions to our team, services we provide. Everything you need to know about us, right there on the page, as they say.
We hope you enjoy browsing the new site. And hey, if you like what you see why not drop us a line? We’d love to help you apply a current, sophisticated aesthetic to your next project.
