I'll go into a discussion about Kidd's graphic design work next week, but for now will just say that he is an incredibly prolific designer. In fact, it's pretty safe to say that you've seen Chip Kidd's work. You may not have known it was his, but if you've ever even browsed around a book store than you've definitely seen his design. Famous for his book jacket and cover design, which he has been creating for the publishing house Alfred A. Knopf for over 20 years, Chip Kidd is recognizable for his dark and clever sensibilities and his designs which are distinctly his own, yet adhere to no particular style.
