Hello.

My name is Chris Wells. I am co-founder and Cre­at­ive Dir­ect­or for Folk Labs – a cre­at­ive digit­al soft­ware devel­op­ment agency.

Thus far in my career I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy work­ing on pro­jects for com­mer­cial cli­ents and cent­ral gov­ern­ment as well as with char­it­ies, NGOs and social enterprises.

I’ve rebranded IPPF – one of the world’s largest vol­un­tary organ­isa­tions, art dir­ec­ted the glob­al cam­paign launch of Vision2020 at the UN and also led the design of sev­er­al major inter­na­tion­al health con­fer­ences. Oh, and in the past nine years, I’ve dir­ectly designed or man­aged nearly 900 cre­at­ive projects.

I’m famil­i­ar with the unique issues presen­ted by char­ity and non­profit brands which can under­mine suc­cess­ful cre­at­ive pro­jects. I am also skilled in facil­it­at­ing non­profit cli­ents across the inev­it­able gap between their organ­isa­tion­al strategies and cre­ativ­ity. By tak­ing an integ­rated sys­tems approach to pro­duc­tion, com­bin­ing it with inform­a­tion archi­tec­ture, con­tent strategy and writ­ing, I’ve increased effi­ciency and cut costs while main­tain­ing high pro­duc­tion values.

Now, with over 15 years’ cre­at­ive exper­i­ence, I’ve chosen to com­mit my career to help­ing non­profits and social enter­prises more suc­cess­fully achieve their mis­sion by bet­ter express­ing their brand to their stakeholders.

I also hope to encour­age cre­at­ive agen­cies to apply their expert­ise to social issues in dir­ect part­ner­ship with non­profit organ­isa­tions and even for some cre­at­ives to pur­sue a career inside the non­profit sector.

I am con­stantly seek­ing new ways to meet these goals and I need your help.
Wel­come to my site.
