Chip Kidd
Chip Kidd, a reputable Alfred Knopf book cover designer, spoke at Hotchkiss yesterday night. (If you don’t know who he is, watch his TED Talk here.) He read aloud from his book The Cheese Monkeys: A Novel In Two Semesters, which is an autobiographical novel about his experience studying graphic design in college.
Mr. Kidd is also the co-author of True Prep: It’s a Whole New Old World, a book that is pretty indicative of typical Hotchkiss students. 
When Lookbooked Mr. Kidd, I also asked about his pants. They had skulls on them (motif is below), so I asked if it had anything to do with his website. The words “GOOD IS DEAD” with a period in shape of a skull border the top of his site. When you scroll your mouse over the words, they change to “GO FOR GREAT”. Mr. Kidd informed me that he had bought these University Chino Skull Pants from the Rugby by Ralph Lauren because he heard that Rugby is being closed down.
