Skolos-Wedell

By |



Our November 2007 lecture was scheduled to host the husband-wife graphic design team of Skolos-Wedell. This collaborating team of photographer Tom Wedell and designer Nancy Skolos work to diminish the boundaries between graphic design and photography. They are known for their collaged three-dimensional images that are influenced by modern painting, technology, and architecture. They balance their commitments to professional practice and teaching at the Rhode Island School of Design where Skolos is a professor of graphic design and Wedell is a senior critic. The studio of Skolos-Wedell 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 Israel Museum, and the Museum fur Gestaltung, Zurich. The two recently co-authored the book, Type, Image, Message published by Rockport in 2006, and it is this topic on which they spoke Monday, November 5 at 7pm in Ezell 301. If you are interested in more information on Nancy Skolos and Tom Wedell, please check out their website at www.skolos-wedell.com. In conjunction with our fall lecture, Tom Wedell served as a judge for the second annual Nashville Design Competition.
