Brian Murphy

I’m an independent Creative and Design Director with more than thirty years professional experience completing successful branding and communications programs for some of the best-known corporations in America. With a special emphasis on branding, identity, and corporate communications, my work always has a singular focus: the creation, management, or revitalization of brands.

Recently I’ve been working with clients, agencies and design firms, primarily in the areas of fashion, luxury goods, health care, insurance, financial services and pharmaceuticals. I was principal and CD of Art & Design for ten years. Prior to that, I worked for Hill, Holliday/Boston where I was Design Director.

My work has been recognized by the One Show of NY, Hatch Awards, the Creative Club of Boston, Communications Arts Magazine, the Connecticut Art Directors Club,
the Caples Awards, the PDN/Nikon Awards, the BPAA (Business
& Professional Advertising Association), the DMA (Direct Marketing
Association of America), Catalog Age, Progressive Architecture, Print
Magazine and the Society of Illustrators.

A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, I’ve also taught
several courses at RISD in graphic design and art direction. I’m a
member of Graphis, the International Branding Association, and the
American Institute of Graphic Arts.
