I have worked with countless talented people over the years, but if I were starting a business tomorrow Dean would be my *first* recruit. No question. Whether I needed a top-level designer or not, Dean brings world-class man management skills and motivation to the party. As a designer, Dean's experience, intuition and judgement brought incredible value to our organisation. As a department leader and member of the executive team, Dean's strength is his ability to assess a situation with clarity and honesty. I couldn't recommend Dean highly enough. Whoever snaps him up will benefit immensely from his professionalism, commitment and character.

I'm Dean Murphy, a creative and ambitious Head of Design with vast commercial and design knowledge of digital, product and print design. I have experience of leading multidisciplinary design teams as well as managing departmental workflow. I'm a trusted partner and collaborator with attention to detail and a thoughtful team approach who can elevate ideas into visual identities for brands.
I've worked alongside Dean for five years, and I couldn't recommend him enough. He's an amazing manager and colleague.
His experience in design speaks for itself, he is creative, innovative, and proactive in any project thrown his way. Dean is a key member of the team and the organisation, his knowledge spreads across all departments. I've seen numerous colleagues from other teams go to Dean for help on many occasions, he won't turn a single question down, if he doesn't know the answer, he will help you find it.
He leads the Operations and Design team at the highest capacity, and creates an environment that is approachable and supportive, whether it's our well-being or our professional progression."
