SPOTLIGHT-Chip Kidd

For my second spotlight post I decided to pick a Graphic designer this time and chose Chip Kidd. I love his work and it has always stood out to me, especially his comic style work and posters. Chip is a Designer/Writer in New York City. His book cover designs for Alfred A. Knopf, where he has worked non-stop since 1986.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 more.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. Here is so,e of my favourite designs from him.
