One of my new favorite things about Netflix Streaming is the recent addition of collections of TED Talks which range across a broad set of topics from design, humor, innovation and many more. A few months ago I was exploring these talks and came across ‘Chip Kidd: Designing books is no laughing matter. OK, it is.’ I have long admired the design work of Chip Kidd who has designed some of the most iconic books of our times but was really blown away when I saw his TED Talk. I was so blown away by not only for the designs that Chip walks the audience through but because it is probably one of the best and most dynamic stage presentations I have ever seen from any designer. It is funny, engaging and shows what great presentation craft really is all about. Plus how can you not love someone who uses the phrase ‘typography in denial’. You can watch the whole TED talk above or click here to watch it on YouTube.
