The Burness Creative team has had a busy first half of 2017. Here’s a highlight reel of our work so far this year.
Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop Swaying
One of the biggest challenges for patients with Mal de Débarquement Syndrome (MdDS) is that many physicians have never heard of it. Our partner, the MdDS Foundation, is working to change that.
Grown-Ups Spell for Good
Burness competed in a grown-up spelling bee to raise money for the Montgomery Coalition for Adult English Literacy. It was awesome. Here are the highlights.
If Your Work Is Serious, It Doesn’t Mean Your Communications Has to Be
When the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) asked us to help explain their “value-based approach to drug pricing” in a video, we knew we’d have to get creative to make their work relatable.
From Homelessness to Home
Mr. Ford is an army veteran who, after being homeless for more than a decade, recently moved into his first apartment. We worked with the Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network to help tell his story.
A “Grandparent-Approved” PSA
To convince older audiences to get the shingles vaccine, our partners at the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases knew they would need to create something that would grab grandparents’ attention.
Our Creative Portfolio
Videos, graphics, gifs, Twitter, blog posts, websites – these days, there are so many ways to communicate beyond traditional media, and Burness does ‘em all. To showcase some of our recent creative work, we’ve put together a new creative portfolio.

Chambers orchestrated a major event on Monday, Sept. 21st, in Halifax, Nova Scotia that was webcast worldwide to launch this year-long experiment and to encourage a discussion about social media, science and health. Go to the Storify to see the conversation that unfolded on Twitter. I was lucky enough to be there to moderate this discussion with those in the room and from around the world online—from Australia, South Africa, Qatar and Ireland, to name a few.
