Working with type and image and the integration of these two elements to create persuasive and effective design pieces are the foundations of good graphic design. Yet, very little practical information exists for these tasks.

This book changes all it. It gives designers the practical know-how to combine type and image for dynamic effect as well as to use them in contrast to create tension and meaning in design. Creating strong layouts is the most important as well as the most challenging of any project. This book inspires through excellence by exhibiting great design work then deconstructing the processes in simple visual terms.

Type, Image, Message: Merging Pictures and Ideas looks at this respected art form while providing practical information that can be used by any designer wishing to hone the skills needed to merge type with images in an inspired manner.

About the Author

Nancy Skolos and Thomas Wedell are the principals of Skolos-Wedell, an interdisciplinary graphic design and photography studio.

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
