Husband and wife, the two work to diminish the boundaries between graphic design and photography‐creating collaged three-dimensional images influenced by cubism, technology and architecture. The studio’s work came into its own in the 80s where the developing high technology industry opened up opportunities for making the invisible visible. The team’s surreal photographic concepts combined with rational typographic structures gave voice to abstract concepts such ‘software.’ A 1993 Eye Magazine feature on the studio labeled their attitude “techno-cubist.“ Over the span of their career, their approach has evolved and their client base has expanded, but their passion for experimentation with photography and design has remained the foundation of their vision.

Skolos and Wedell have authored two books: Type, Image, Message, published by Rockport in 2006, and Graphic Design Process, published by Laurence King in 2012. Both teach graphic design the Rhode Island School of Design and consider teaching to be as vital as practice.

Their work has received numerous awards including gold, silver, and bronze prizes in the Warsaw, Lahti and Toyama Poster Biennials and Triennials. They have been widely published and exhibited, with posters included in the graphic design collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, the Library of Congress, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Israel Museum, and the Museum für Gestaltung, Skolos is an elected member of the Alliance Graphique Internationale and a Boston AIGA Fellow. Both have been awarded the Medal of the AIGA.
