History Thursday: Chip Kidd on TIME



Chip Kidd is known for his book jacket designs. He’s also the author of The Cheese Monkeys: A Novel in Two Semesters, a book that every graphic design student should read before graduation. Kidd is one of those super famous designers, his work wraps around some of the most beloved (and well-known) contemporary writers, and you can probably imagine one of his covers just at the mention of his name. So I put him in the “History” category, even though he’s still working on new projects. He’s not “History” in the sense of being “old news,” he’s historic for accomplishing so much in his career already. This TIME Magazine Photo Gallery is worth viewing if you don’t know much of his work. If you have more TIME (get it?), you can listen to a 40+ minute interview between Kidd and Debbie Millman.
