Naomi Kriss is a passionate authority on public relations for the architecture and design industries. She founded Kriss Communications in 2006 with the aim to broaden awareness of quality contemporary design in Canada and to expand recognition of work by Canadian designers abroad.
Representing architects, interior designers, design hotels, as well as noteworthy cultural projects and institutions coast to coast, Naomi helps her clients to understand what makes them unique from their often similarly perceived competitors, to find ways to present their stories beyond a press release, and to become regular participants in a global dialogue about innovative design.
Raised in Toronto, Paris, London, Oxford and Jerusalem, Naomi presents a broad vision and an international perspective. For over 20 years she has applied strategic thinking and creativity to help architectural practices transform their communications and drive new business.
Naomi graduated with a bachelor’s degree in the history of art from the Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London and a master’s degree in post-war and contemporary art from Sotheby’s Institute, University of Manchester.
