Gweek 112: Chip Kidd, rockstar of graphic design


I thought ageism in design had gone too far already, but now we’ll be seeing PRINT’s “12 hot new designers under 12” issue!

Kidd is the real deal. I met him a couple of years ago when he was giving a presentation at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Not just a great designer but pretty hilarious to boot!

When we lived in MA, an actual job opening came up for Kidd. I filled out an application and sent it in. The end. My brush with greatness. (If you do a story on those Scriptographic booklets, I can tell a very similar anecdote!)
