How do you create a creative voice for multiple industries, craftsmen and innovative creative companies? No small task, I can assure you, but the answer is a true collaborative process for the public to celebrate. Collaborating with leading artists from around the globe, Murphy invited 32 individuals to create original paintings for one unified theme per year. The result was a highly charged, unique promotional piece distributed freely to communication professionals, friends and fans of art worldwide.
Special thanks to Appleton Coated, Potlatch, French Paper Co., Gilbert and over 180 artists these calendars will serve as reminders of how innovative thinking, personal expression and highly charged craftsmanship can survive past the days the actual calendar serviced.
