Growing up in the Land Down Under, Kris Taifalos first discovered his love of design while obsessively studying CD album covers. The layout, the typography, the imagery, and the overall art direction drew him to explore how to shape things creatively.

Kris landed his first design job in high school at an entertainment street press magazine. After the school day, he would work until the early morning creating editorial layouts and ads, enjoying the payoff of a visual story he could touch. At the same time, spending weekends discovering heroes like Ettore Sottsass, reading about art history, sneaking into modern art museums, and watching music videos on MTV.

While at University, lecturers recommended him for a broadcast designer job where he created stylized on-air news graphics for Network 10 News.

After a few more years in design studio roles, Kris’ hunger for a visually rich world landed him the creative lead at Drawcard Media. An advertising agency that creates campaigns to reach people in their everyday environments – campuses, cafes, bars, art institutions, and key cultural events.

In 2015, Kris relocated to New York City.

He is currently an Art Director at ViacomCBS. He directs creative for brand design and campaign creative across diverse touchpoints – working alongside consumer brands including BET, CBS, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount, PlutoTV, Showtime, and VH1. A stand-out moment was negotiating with NYPD to quickly shoot the iconic Clueless look in Bryant Park (don’t tell legal).

Things he enjoys: avant-garde fashion, contemporary dance, European type design, brand design blogs, airline brand identities, architectural design, modern and postmodern furniture, and other talented people.
