I liked this TED talk, so I thought you might want to see it.
The guy’s called Chipp Kidd and he designs book front covers for a living.
How’s about that for a profession?
I wonder how many times he’s heard the old ‘can’t judge a book by its cover’ line?
Anyway, while I mostly talk about writing I like to learn about design too. And, this raises some interesting points about first impressions.
P.S TED stays for technology, entertainment and design. Who knew it?!
