Nancy Skolos (Dean, Architecture + Design) and Thomas Wedell (Senior Critic, Graphic Design) will be awarded medals from the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) at their gala on the 21st April 2017. Skolos and Wedell were “recognized for pushing the boundaries of art, design, and technology with a distinctive vision to find connection among disparate forms.”
The AIGA medalists are chosen based on their individual contributions to the design community through leadership and excellence over the course of their careers. The AIGA Medal has been awarded to design professionals since 1920.
Most recently Skolos and Wedell were awarded a Gold Award in Graphis Logos for their design of the RISD Shortruns logo.
