“Every idea has the potential to be great”. That’s what our CEO and founder, Daniel Burns, believes in - and has strived to make it the core value of everything we develop at DBurns in its more than ten years of activity.
We are, before everything, good listeners: be it in our internal meetings, where our team members have the freedom to bring ideas to the table and help shape the company’s future, or with potential clients that are excited to share a new concept or need help identifying and solving problems. We take the time to understand their offerings, their market, their competition and their challenges. We don’t just take their ideas as they are, but bring in our expertise to amplify them and maximize their potential. All that results in a highly organized information architecture and a clear design direction that connects with their audience and brings measurable results and return.
“Passion” is what drives us. It is what makes us get up in the morning and do what we do every day - but more than that, it’s what makes us go the extra mile, craft every detail, try and learn new things to be more efficient, make things better or make them more exciting. It’s what makes our artists obsess over pixel-perfect designs, our developers add one more cool effect to their code, or our strategists try a different approach that might just spark a bigger result. And it’s Passion that transforms what some would see as ‘chores’ into ‘fun’.
The result of loving what we do, allied with focus and discipline, can be seen in our Santa Monica office - where we display, with pride, the clients we have worked with as well as every piece of recognition we have received - be it a letter written by a happy client or a trophy from a high profile Award. You can also see our results in the our work page.
