As an art director I design logotypes, graphic profiles, books, magazines, menus and webs for all kinds of national and international businesses, organisations and NGOs.

I have lead a multi-national production team of journalists, editors and art directors, coordinating with sales teams and leading international media in order to produce tailor-made communication projects for countries, regions and industry sectors worldwide.

I'm currently creating photographic and video content for and managing the Instagram account for the Tasca la Farmacia restaurants and Beth Mc Gowan Jewels.

"Kris Kjellgard is an extraordinarily talented professional with a wide range of skills, one of the best I've ever worked with. As creative director at Afa Press/Worldfolio, she managed the design, artwork and layout of scores of newspaper supplements and magazine-length publications, overseeing everything from original concept to final production. She also coordinated advertising sales teams in countries around the world, making sure deadlines were met and client requirements satisfied. 

 

Kris has excellent people skills and takes a solutions-oriented approach to all her work. She would be a major asset to the communications/publications team in any organization, whether a private company, government agency or NGO."
