Don’t miss our adorable Kidd of the Year, Chip Kidd, in this interview by Dwell. In this episode, we learn he lived one town over from John Updike, whose father was Kidd’s father’s math teacher (A ha! So the literary thing was kind of embedded early on). He also discusses his comic loves and answers the question of whether or not he gets residuals for the Jurassic Park image. (“Yes, I do, in fact, we need to end this soon so I can go fly to my yacht.”) Don’t miss the Kidd-cam when surveying his apartment and—yes!–footage of his now-famous performance with Artbreak!
Then tune in this Friday for the premiere of “Design Matters,” starring Kidd and more than a few surprises!
