frazor murphy (77-83) Founding Partner ThinRedLine Design
“Creativity is intelligence having fun” Albert Einstein
Since leaving school I have worked with some of the top design agencies and consultancies in Edinburgh and London, and work on many major blue chip accounts.
I am an award-winning graphic designer and photographer, with Scottish Design, SWOT and Precision Marketing awards, my 30 years’ creative industry experience have led to specialist skills in idea generation, graphic design & illustration, printing techniques and photography.
I am a founding partner of ThinRedLine Design, an Edinburgh-based agency offering graphic design for company literature, brochures and corporate identity, websites, photography, marketing, and branded product solutions.
ThinRedLine is an artistic hub with a wide range of freelance support services; with creatives working in Switzerland, Australia and India, and drop shipping with manufacturers in Hungary and Poland. Its established industry knowledge and ability to source the right creative team and products mean client marketing needs, no matter how big or small the project, are facilitated with the support of optimum studio resources. It has worked within many industries, including financial services, retail, tourism, property and construction, the Scottish Government, manufacturing and education.
I am now an active member of the Merchistonian Club Committee. My company has used its extensive branding and marketing expertise to help establish the Club’s new range of highly desirable, top quality garments, that arrive direct to your door - emblazoned with the Merchistonian crest.
I very much enjoy my involvement with the Merchistonian Club, fully appreciating the opportunity to meet up with old friends and make new ones too, even picking up a golf club for the first time in eight years whilst attending the recent Merchistonian golf and drinks event in Newcastle!
As a businessman, the Club has also provided me the chance to network and establish professional links; ThinRedLine Design is now working with Graeme Crossly (95-99) of Bloodhound Digital and Matthew Gray (79-85) of Gilson Gray.
