Mr Murphy

Mr Murphy

Hello!

I’m Mr Murphy, but you can call me Chris.

I’m a designer, writer and speaker based in Belfast. Above all, I’m a teacher, but I’m still on my own learning journey.

As a design strategist I’ve worked with companies, large and small, driving innovation by drawing on my 30 years of experience working with clients including: Adobe, Electronic Arts (EA) and the BBC.

I mentor startup founders who are building purpose-driven businesses. This work is underpinned by my own startup, The School of Design, a community for design-focused entrepreneurs who are designing and building the businesses of tomorrow.

If you’re thinking of running a conference – online or off – I’d love to hear from you!
