"Good design is about effective communication, not decoration..."      Vitaly Friedman

I understand the power that image and art have to communicate. Finding the right balance between functionality and aesthetics is what I'm passionate about.



I'm Pat Murphy, a freelance designer, illustrator and watercolorist based in Norfolk, Virginia. My degree in graphic design combined with past work in architecture and the arts have shaped me into the unique designer I am today. Pat Squared Design is a boutique design shop specializing in all things print. That's right — print is not dead!

Whether it's branding your company, promoting your campaign or designing your custom wedding paper suite, I create print and digital products that help you realize your unique vision and style.



When not in my studio, I hang out on my yoga mat, search for authentic mid-century furniture, travel, and sip dry Irish stout.
