Announcement: Chip Kidd on Design Matters Today 01.06.06

Today marks the Season Three Premiere of "Design Matters with Debbie Millman" and joining me on this landmark show is the fabulous Chip Kidd.

Let me tell you a bit more about Mr. Kidd:

Chip Kidd has created over 1,500 book cover designs, including works for Bret Easton Ellis, Charles Schulz, Mark Beyer, David Sedaris, Alex Ross, Frank Miller, Michael Crichton, Cormac McCarthy and many, many others. His book jacket designs for Alfred A. Knopf have helped spawn a revolution in the art of American book packaging. His work has been featured in Vanity Fair, Print, Entertainment Weekly, The New Republic, Time, The New York Times, Graphis, New York and ID. The latter chose him as part of its first ID 40 group of the nation's top designers and awarded him 'Best of Category, Packaging' twice. Chip has also written about graphic design and popular culture; his first book as author and designer, "Batman Collected,” was given the Design Distinction award from ID magazine. His second book, "Batman Animated" (1998) garnered two of the comic book industry's Eisner Awards. Chip also designed the acclaimed trilogy "Superman: The Complete History," "Batman: The Complete History" and "Wonder Woman: The Complete History" for Chronicle Books. He has written a novel, "The Cheese Monkeys," which was published by Simon and Schuster in 2001, and in 2003 Kidd collaborated with writer Art Spiegelman on a biography of the cartoonist Jack Cole entitled Jack Cole and Plastic Man: Forms Stretched to Their Limits. Finally, a monograph of his work, Chip Kidd: Book One, Work: 1986 – 2006 was published by Rizzoli in 2005.
