Mr. Murphy

Designer, Writer and Speaker

This is the copy for the hero image. It might be updated, it’s the only one I’m not sure of. Christopher Murphy: An award-winning designer, writer and speaker, I work with business of all shapes and sizes, helping them to grow and thrive.

Designing Business

Over a twenty-five year career helping to build innovative and profitable businesses, one core lesson I’ve learned is that purpose-focused businesses are the future.

In an age of mass manufacture, where every business looks the same, the businesses that stand out are those that pursue a different path and share a different story. I help individuals and teams to develop meaningful and profitable pathways to success through product and service innovation, delivered via inspirational workshops.

I enable small businesses to think big and I encourage big businesses to think small. I’ve had the privilege to work with businesses at every size and scale, from micro-businesses to multi-nationals, all over the world. I’d love to work with you to help your business flourish.

Christopher’s workshops are transformative. After just two days of working with him we had a clear vision for growth, all helpfully wrapped up in a series of ‘maps’ we had workshopped.
Chris Armstrong · Founder, Niice

A decade after I graduated I still call on Christopher for advice. As a business mentor he challenges you to amplify your vision, and his trademark ‘harsh, but fair’ approach is… harsh, but fair!
Lee Munroe · Product Design Manager, Mesosphere, Inc.

Christopher drove us forward as we developed our vision for the next phase of Little Thunder’s growth. He asked the right questions and he challenged our thinking. He’ll go to the ends of the earth for you.

My Approach

I believe that design has the power to transform business and I work with organisations – large and small, national and international – to challenge and improve their thinking, process and, above all, culture.

I do this through inspirational, hands-on, practical workshops that I tailor to every business I work with. My workshops motivate the organisations I work with, helping them to see the bigger picture and draw teams together. They focus on:

A Beginner's Mind
I enable businesses – no matter their scale – to embrace a startup approach, helping them to design the products of tomorrow, today.
Digital Product Design
I’ve designed and built numerous digital products. I share the lessons I’ve learned along the way with the businesses I work with.
Brand Storytelling
I help businesses cut through the noise by creating engaging brand stories that stand out in a world of information overload.

I can help you with: strategy and consultancy; branding and visual design; content strategy and copywriting; digital product design; and user experience design.

Let’s Work Together

Every business is different and every business challenge is unique. I’m more than happy to meet for a coffee, or chat via Skype, to help you define your specific goals.

If you have a problem you’d like to explore, please do get in touch. I’ll happily meet with you for an hour – with no obligations and at no cost – to explore some ideas. You’ve nothing to lose and I’ve no doubt the conversation will prove interesting.
