Captions Color Guard Design Analysis
Brian Murphy has been judging for WGI as an Ensemble Analysis judge since the 2004 season. He brings a vast background of color guard experience to his judging. Brian was the designer for St. Annâ€™s Color Guard from 1991 thru 2004, during which time St. Annâ€™s garnered 10 WGI medals. Under Brianâ€™s leadership, St. Annâ€™s became a role model for guards and proved that a guard can begin in the A class and be promoted through the ranks and then be able to compete at the highest level of competition in the World Class. In addition, the organization also created a model that brought A, Open, and World guards, all in a given year, to the WGI scene, and all of whom achieved success in their own right. Brian also has roots in the DCI activity. He serves as co-program coordinator and as visual designer for the Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps. Outside of the pageantry activities, Brian lives in Boston Massachusetts and works as a Business Transformation/IT specialist for IBM Corporation.
