Hi there!
My name is Emma Nora Murphy, and I’m a graphic design graduate based in Dublin and from Wexford. Having spent the last four years immersed in the exceptional design world of IADT, I was delighted to receive a first-class honours for my work.
I have an engaging passion for Branding, Research, Illustration, Motion, UX/UI and copywriting. I'm dedicated, hardworking and a creatively curious individual. I excel working in a fast-paced studio environment where I can continue to grow and improve my skills. Collaborating with other designers to produce strong, concept-driven projects is something I love to do, and I'm excited to apply my skills alongside a team.
Currently living in Dublin, I'm ready to put my multidisciplinary skills to work by crafting vibrant and concept-driven projects that leave a lasting impression focusing on design for good and meaningful change. I believe that a solid research foundation amplifies the design development stage of projects, and I pride myself on being intuitively skilled in this area.
