Over at the always amazing ARCHITIZER website Samuel Medina just posted a book review about Chip Kidd’s Graphic Novel, BATMAN: DEATH BY DESIGN (DC Comics). The website’s main focus is on the latest trends of Modern Architecture so they have a very interesting angle on this book. We love how they focused on Dave Taylor’s artwork as well. Plus, may we also suggest that while you’re there, go look at some of the incredible home design eye-candy. Seriously, very cool stuff, you’ll drool for days!

Here’s some comic book publishing news that is way too cool NOT to mention. It looks like the Graphic Novel Book, BATMAN: DEATH BY DESIGN (DC Comics) has been translated into a “Foreign” German-Language version for the Germany book market. The only main difference I can see is that the title has been changed to “Bauwerke des Todes” which, when translated into English, means “Structures of Death” …cool!!

Debbie Millman, the extremely brilliant and ultra-beautiful host of the DESIGN MATTERS podcast, that is a major part of the DESIGN OBSERVER website, recently interviewed Chip Kidd about many many things: His experience with his now popular TED Talk, what it was like to kiss Neil Gaiman on stage at the last San Diego Comic Con, his life-long appreciation of the comic book character BATMAN and much much more.
But, the main focus of the interview is the creation of Chip’s latest book, “GO! A Kidd’s Guide To Graphic Design” (Workman Publishing). Debbie asked some really great questions that were very thought-provoking and together they cover a ton of design-related topics.
About her, DEBBIE MILLMAN is the president of the design division at Sterling Brands. She is also President Emeritus of AIGA, a contributing editor to Print Magazine, and chair of the School of Visual Arts’ master’s program in Branding.

Rebecca Gross, a writer for NEA ARTS (The Official Magazine for the National Endowment of The Arts) just posted a really great interview with the Cartoonist & Graphic Novelist, Daniel Clowes. The article is pretty interesting as Clowes talks a lot about style & technique and, it also contains a ton of wonderful eye candy for your eyeballs as well.

Here’s a quick post to share this example of some cool graphic design created by Chip Kidd. He recently redesigned the PANTHEON GRAPHIC NOVELS Logo for a trade show banner they needed for the recent 2013 San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) and we have to admit that it looks pretty damn good!
At this year’s 2013 San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) Chris Ware was honored with four (Yes 4!) Eisner Awards for his brand-new Graphic Novel, BUILDING STORIES (Published by Pantheon). Here’s a photo of one of them, Congrats Chris… you honestly deserve this credit, great job!!
Here’s a cool piece of Graphic Art History! Dave Taylor, the Artist who drew Chip Kidd’s first DC Comics’ Graphic Novel, BATMAN: DEATH BY DESIGN, created this Promo Poster for the book which never got made. It was actually more like a prototype showing what the book COULD look like. Of course it has his “raw graphite pencil sketch” look, which did make it into the book and was also a great style for the story. So, that’s cool! Hey DC Comics, if you’re reading this you need to make this a poster for sale!!

We reported awhile back here at CHIPKIDD.COM that DC Comics was going to premier a “Book Trailer” Video for their new line of Graphic Novels titled, BEFORE THE WATCHMEN, in Times Square (NYC, NY). There are 4 books in the complete set and Chip Kidd designed the covers for all of them! Some other excited news is that this is the very first time that DC Comics has had a promo on the giant Jumbotron, yes!
Up above is some actual photographic proof and if you still don’t believe us then check out this cool video, ha!
