The Agrell Group was formed in 1993 as a collaboration of graphic designer/illustrator Lewis Agrell and writer/editor Kathryn Agrell. Over the past fourteen years, the team has brought their creative talents to not only the Tri-City area but to national and international clients.
Lewis Agrell is an award-winning designer and illustrator. Those who live in Prescott are familiar with Lewis’s “Prescott Poster,” a handpainted poster focusing on the historic buildings of Prescott, and the jazz posters that are created each year for the Northern Arizona Jazz Summit.
A native Minnesotan, Lewis came to Prescott after ten years as the Chief Artist for the Sarasota Herald-Tribune (circ. 130,000), a New York Times subsidiary newspaper in Florida. Prior to that he was the art director for Sarasota Magazine.
Lewis’s expertise covers most mediums including oil, watercolor, pastel, scratchboard, pen and ink, airbrush, and computer illustration and design. His illustrations have appeared in such magazines as Newsday, America West, Military Officers, Orange Coast and Artist's Magazine.
He is proficient in book design and book cover design and works with a number of independent book publishers.

Editor/Writer Kathryn Agrell began her career in New York City by interviewing Broadway celebrities, but quickly moved into the field of sportswriting after inadvertently catching baseball fever. Her preoccupation with America’s favorite pastime led to the writing of We Won Today: My Season with the Mets, published by Doubleday & Co.
Having grown up in the Big Apple, she knew by the age of 22 that she needed to live in a place where there was less noise and pollution. So she moved to Florida and became a sports reporter. As her interest in sports waned, her enthusiasm for advertising copywriting took hold. As a freelance copywriter with an advertising agency in Sarasota and then in Washington D.C., she wrote copy for restaurants, hotels, construction companies, hospitals, and computer companies. Now in Prescott, Arizona, she continues to offer her advertising skills to clients.
In 1989, Kathryn worked as a columnist with the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, writing the Hotline column, answering questions from the public that related to all fields of endeavor: politics, science, medicine, history, the arts, the environment. It was also there that she met Lewis Agrell, and the rest, shall we say, is history.
As a freelance writer, she co-authored Historic Prescott and has written articles for Gale Research Company, Lisa Frank, Inc., The Sports Informer, Circus magazine, Daytime TV magazine, Manatee Business News, and Our Town Newspaper.
Since 1992, she has been a substantive editor, copyeditor, and proofreader for new authors as well as established publishing companies. She has worked as an editor, writer, and speechwriter for L.L.C., Ltd., the creators of Los Kitos, the number one most loved cartoon characters in the Hispanic world. She has also written a number of audio scripts and video shooting scripts. As a playwright, she created Love and Its Consequences, which was produced by Yavapai College in April 2000.
