My name is Denise Burt and I’m a graphic artist. I was born and raised in New Zealand and attended the Elam School of Fine Arts, Auckland (1990–1993) where I studied photography. After art school, I spent six years living in London where I worked as a freelancer for a range of design and advertising agencies, designing everything from Viagra advertisements to Disney film posters.
I moved to Copenhagen in 2000 and since then I have been working as an independent graphic designer for mostly music clients both in Denmark and internationally. I design in many different media and formats, but creating artwork for recorded music has been the main part of my output. Between 2004 and 2016, I’ve produced designs for over 300 CDs.
You can read about how I got into designing for contemporary classical music in the INTRODUCTION.
