A simple premise: Have a co-worker dress up as Freddie and surprise his three-year-old son, who was also wearing a miniature Freddie costume (which was designed and sewn by his mother, the co-worker’s wife). Oh, to be a kid again.
Working on a Chip Kidd Coffee Hour poster was a dream come true. He was one of the first graphic designers I discovered when I was younger, and I’ve always thought his book covers were astute and unpredictable. His love of Batman is something fierce, and I paid tribute to his fandom with a simple, hand-illustrated/written poster, which was then hand screen printed.
