Steve Frykholm was born in Seattle, Washington in 1942. His career as a graphic designer began in 1966 after he worked in Aba, Nigeria with the Peace Corps at a trade school for girls. While attempting to find a skill to teach the students that would be valuable in their daily life, he learned to screen print.
