The Book Designer Chip Kidd was recently honored with being a guest at the 2015 BEYOND TELLERRAND Conference that is held every year in Germany. The thing that’s pretty cool about this event is they document it with really great video coverage. Here is Chip Kidd’s speech he did and, surprisingly, everything went very well, ha ha!

The main focus was the question, “When should design be clear, and when should it be mysterious?” Chip also talks about the future of Graphic Design, mostly his career related to “Book Cover” design, and he also tries to figure out why the Huffingtom Post has called him, “The Meryl Streep of Book Design”… it’s crazy!
