Sue Murphy is a creative, a think-tank founder, a previous head of design, a big picture thinker, a past partner of an agency, a being not on instagram because it’s scary how kids and people are feeling so depressed now and we really should be doing more about that, a pretty successful recruiter, a strategist who leaves no stone unturned, a mac-powered designer, a better doodler than a drawer who gets away with “abstract” art painting, a voracious culture vulture, a leader, a spreadsheet-obsessed project manager, an insane rolodex aka 2019 airtable holder, a no b.s.er., an Irish woman who provides the comedic relief and believes that since we spend more time in work than anywhere else so if we can make it enjoyable then let’s fucking do it, a human who survived some epic workplace bullying, a mentor, a gif-extraordinaire, a person who reads Harvard Business Review for fun, a gal who started coding at age 11 as there was nothing else to do and has now been doing this working thing for a long while hence she likes to switch up roles and take on new challenges alot, a soul whose goal is to inspire outside of the echo-chamber and build the best creative environment possible, an Amsterdamer, then a New Yorker, then a Portlander, now a San Franciscan, a bad bio writer, and someone mighty impressed if you have made it to the very end of this paragraph.
