I'm a graphic designer who's lived and worked in New York for over 20 years. I started out in interactive graphics for clients in children's media and advertising. A full-time job as promotion art director at Playboy Enterprises brought me into publishing, where I was able to develop programs and designs across print, digital, and video, both online and on-air.
I've developed b2b and b2c video promotions in the entertainment, lifestyle, and health and fitness categories for many world-class brands. I'm currently working as the creative director for JW Media, promoting the Olympia Fitness and Performance Weekend. I also work on contract, and am hoping to work more in the healthcare and pharmaceutical categories.
In addition I paint watercolors, and received a 2019 New Works Grant from the Queens Council on the Arts to create large-scale landscapes of Newtown Creek. Learn more at johnkitses.com. Or just check out my painting Instagram.
