Christopher Sleboda is Director of Graphic Design at the Yale University Art Gallery, one of the oldest university art museums in the US. For more than fifteen years he has overseen graphic design and wayfinding for the museum—from exhibition graphics and signage to brochures, programs, and art books—while working closely with graphic design students in the Yale MFA program and organizing public events like the annual Odds and Ends Art Book Fair.

Sleboda is also the co-founder of Draw Down Books, which was conceived as a platform to design, publish and sell titles that focus on graphic design, typography, photography, illustration, architecture, and art. The project has offered Sleboda opportunities to curate exhibitions, exhibit and speak at artist book fairs, and take an active role in the independent publishing community.

He is currently adjunct faculty at the Rhode Island School of Design. He has been a Visiting Designer at the University of Connecticut as well as the Vermont College of Fine Arts.

Since 2003 Sleboda has produced work under the studio name Gluekit. This award-winning design practice provides graphic images and photo-illustration for an international clientele.
