Chip Kidd is world-famous for designing some of the most innovative book covers of our time. How do his ideas come to life?
This inspirational 35-minute class takes you on a journey through Chip’s process for designing an art poster, a real project he took on for the Brooklyn Book Festival in Fall 2016. As he explores his assignment, research strategy, and even graphic ideas, you’ll see how the best graphic designers — Chip amongst them — are creative and conceptual problem-solvers.
You’ll learn how to:
- Plan and research a new creative project
- Evaluate compelling concepts
- Execute original ideas independently
Plus, each lesson is filled with lesser-known examples of Chip Kidd’s poster work, as well as comparisons to his popular work in book cover design.
Whether you’re creating your own poster, curious about the principles of good design, or just want to see a master at work, this class will help you “think like a designer,” hone your visual instincts, and harness the power of graphic design!
