Chip Kidd is a Designer/Writer in New York City (and Stonington, CT, and Palm Beach, FL). His book cover designs for Alfred A. Knopf, where he has worked non-stop since 1986, have helped create a revolution in the art of American book packaging. He is the recipient of the National Design Award for Communications, as well at the Use of Photography in Design award from the International Center of Photography. And a bunch of other stuff. Kidd has published two novels, The Cheese Monkeys and The Learners, as well as Batman: Death By Design, an original graphic novel published by DC Comics and illustrated by Dave Taylor. He is also the author of several books about comics, notably ‘Peanuts: The Art of Charles M. Schulz’, ‘Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross’, ‘Batman: Animated’, ‘Jack Cole and Plasticman’ (with Art Spiegelman), ‘Batman Collected’, ‘Shazam! The Golden Age of the World’s Mightiest Mortal’, ‘Bat-Manga: The Secret History of Batman in Japan.’ He is also the co-author and designer of ‘True Prep,’ the sequel to the beloved ‘Official Preppy Handbook.’ A distinguished and prolific Lecturer, Kidd has spoken at Princeton, Yale, Harvard, RISD and a zillion other places. His 2012 TED talk has garnered over 400,000 hits as of this writing, and is cited as one of the ‘funniest of the year.’ Lots more to tell, the above barely scratches the surface. Just ask.
