Chip Kidd is legendary in the book design and graphic design world. He’s the genius behind the covers for bestselling books like “Jurassic Park” by Michael Crichton, “Dry” by Augusten Burroughs, and “1Q84” by Haruki Murakami.
Watch the video of Kidd’s talk at TED. He claims that designing books is no laughing matter. We agree, but his brilliant delivery and whip-smart humor might make you think otherwise. Well worth a watch, Kidd’s presentation on design, distillation, and the importance of putting “a face on the story” is great inspiration for book lovers and book designers. Thanks to GalleyCat for cluing us in to this wonderful find.
