Richard Murray, co-founder of design consultancy Williams Murray Hamm, has died of skin cancer. He was 44.

Along with his partners, Richard Williams and Garrick Hamm, Richard Murray built Williams Murray Hamm into one of the UK’s leading design consultancies, renowned for its ability to create witty, challenging work for major consumer brands.

Richard was intelligent, funny, warm and tremendous company. His wit shone through his work. He could be outspoken, but he was always worth listening to. Needless to say, he will be greatly missed, not just by those who knew him personally but by the design industry as a whole.

Donations in his memory can be made to Hatherop Castle School via Cowley and Son Ltd, Cirencester, on 01285 653298.

We would like to offer this space to all those who knew Richard to express their thoughts and tributes to him.
