About the Author
Husband and wife, photographer and designer, the two work to diminish the boundaries between graphic design and photography - creating collaged three-dimensional images influenced by modern painting, technology, and architecture. With a home and studio halfway between Boston and Providence, they balance their commitments to professional practice and teaching at the Rhode Island School of Design, where Skolos is Head of the Department of Graphic Design.
The studio's work has received numerous awards and has been widely published and exhibited. Skolos-Wedell's posters are included in the graphic design collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Library of Congress, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Israel Museum, and the Museum fur Gestaltung, Zurich, Switzerland. Skolos is an elected member of the Alliance Graphique Internationale
