"For our exhibit SS Atlantic Immigrant Ship Disaster at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, Grant provided high quality design work, welcome production supervision and excellent follow-up, all on a tight timeline. This ensured that an important exhibit in our Community Presents program opened on time for an anniversary event"

“I have worked with Grant Murray Design on three substantial exhibits — Gold: A Nova Scotia Treasure, Glamour + Labour: Clairtone in Nova Scotia, and Remembering the Tragedy of Westray. 25 years later — as well as on several smaller graphic and exhibit design projects. It is a pleasure to work with Grant to achieve a result that meets or exceeds my expectations. He is as invested as I am in creating an evocative, educational and entertaining product. I enthusiastically recommend him.”

“When you immerse yourself in the development of an exhibit which draws its content from thoroughly researched and documented subject matter, you may think there are limits to how the stories can be presented. Grant Murray will soon prove you wrong. I have worked with Grant on a number of projects and each time, he surprises me with options and alternatives I never would have considered. One of the most delightful was our SeaMonsters exhibit – his contributions went well beyond purely design, managing to achieve a look and feel that appealed to a broad spectrum of ages and interests. I always look forward to working with Grant.”

“I have had the very great privilege of working with Grant Murray in the development of two Mi’kmaq themed exhibits — First Fishers and “This Is What I Wish You Knew”. Museums are about education and information and the exhibits designed and created by Grant furthered the communication of a Mi’kmaq perspective. The exhibits weave the past with the present. Exceeded my expectations.”

We were pleased to have Grant Murray involved in the development and production of a commemorative exhibit for IOI-Canada on the life and work of “Elisabeth Mann Borgese”, this year being the centenary of her birth. As a professional designer, Grant was both responsive and patient regarding our initial ideas. He provided his professional guidance from concept to finalised product, all within a tight time frame and even tighter budget. The end result more than met expectations.
