About Me

I’m a thinker and a doer. A designer and illustrator. I live in Sydney, was born in Ireland and have red hair and freckles. But don’t let that fool you. 

I like Marvel, Baby Yoda and high-brow junk food.  I’ve been designing since I could hold a notepad. My parents knew never to take me anywhere without it. 

My first gig was as an apparel designer. Digital was emerging and I knew I had found my calling. Working with a bunch of London creative agencies is where I really hit my stride.  I have been in love with user-centred design ever since.

This love affair was made official last year through the completion of my Master of Design at The University of Technology Sydney.

In 2016 I founded the Liza Murphy company. I discovered a gap in the market of high quality modern travel posters with a vintage twist. After being discovered on Instagram by Blue Dog Posters, I was asked to create a collection of custom prints and my company has expanded from there. My work has been featured in Gourmet Traveller magazine and the Leader newspaper. I have created multiple commissions and licensed my work. 

In the future I plan to be one of Australia’s go-to designers, especially for poster design. My company will continue to evolve an avant-garde, vintage-inspired, ultra-digital aesthetic.
