You know his work even if you don't realize it. He designed the cover to Jurassic Park and Cormac McCarthy's The Road.

He spoke to "DC All Access" and we have their interview here:

But they've also provided us with an exclusive clip from the interview, where Chip Kidd talks about his introduction to Batman:

Kidd will be appearing at San Diego Comic-Con this week. And I'll be there as well covering various things.
