Chip Kidd is a designer and writer in New York City. A recipient of the National Design Award for Communications, he is also the author of two novels, The Cheese Monkeys and The Learners, as well as co-author of the recently-published New York Times bestseller, True Prep. Even better, he does an uncanny impression of a new-born baby hamster reciting the opening lines of Alfred Lord Tennyson’s The Charge of the Light Brigade.
