"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."
