Biographies


Don Clark is an artist and cofounder of Invisible Creature, a widely respected and award-winning design studio based in Seattle, Washington. Don formed Invisible Creature in early 2006 with his brother Ryan. Together they have worked with clients such as Target, LEGO, Wired Magazine, Nike, Adobe, XBox, The New York Times, Foo Fighters, Kendrick Lamar and more. In 2008, Invisible Creature received their fourth consecutive Grammy nomination for packaging design. Invisible Creature also designs and curates their own line of products for both children and adults alike. Their products can be found in stores such as Barneys New York, Walker Art Center, Nordstrom, SF MOMA, Super7, Whole Foods & more. Don’s love for mid-century design and illustration lays the groundwork for Invisible Creature’s aesthetic, although his range reaches far beyond any one, specific style. He lives with his wife and their 3 children on a ranch 30 minutes southeast of Seattle.

 

George Slade is a curator, art historian, writer, and consultant based in Minneapolis. He has served in curator and director roles for Minnesota Museum of American Art, Mia (aka the Minneapolis Institute of Art), Minnesota Center for Photography, and the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University. He was the director of the McKnight Foundation Artist Fellowships for Photographers program for ten years. He has lectured and been invited to take part in portfolio reviews at art institutions internationally. His writings appear on-line and in print; he has written essays for numerous artist monographs and periodicals. He received his B.A. in American Studies from Yale University, and his M.A. in Organizational Leadership from St. Catherine University in St. Paul.
