About the Presenter
During the last twenty-six years, Chip Kidd has designed over 1,000 iconic, award-winning book covers that have revolutionized and inspired jacket design. He is the author of The Cheese Monkeys, The Learners, the graphic novel Batman: Death by Design, GO: A Kidd’s Guide to Graphic Design and many other books about comics and design. Hailed by USA Today as “the closest thing to a rock star” in graphic design, you can find him online at Chipkidd.com.
Chip Kidd will recount examples from his career of over a quarter-century where he failed utterly and used those circumstances as an opportunity to do something better than he did in the first place. After the usual process of drinking and crying, of course.
