About Murphy Research

Murphy Research is a custom market research firm based in Los Angeles, California. We were formed in 2008 with the simple premise that groundbreaking research lies at the intersection of science and creativity. The foundation of a successful project is the proper application of research methodologies and analytic tools, flawless execution, and outstanding communication. A truly groundbreaking study, however, evolves from the creative implementation of traditional and cutting edge methodologies complimented by rigorous scientific analysis and visionary interpretation. It is this consistent implementation of creatively inspired science that separates us from the competition.

We approach each project with a simple formula and a single goal: to provide our client with the best possible research to guide strategic business decisions. Each project is creatively designed to efficiently deliver the end results, and we don’t stop there. We learn your business, earn your trust, and provide you with research that is understandable, impactful, and actionable.
