Every Friday we round up some of our favorite finds on the web this week, from illustrations and videos to fonts and photography.

Designing for peanuts
Legendary book cover designer, Chip Kidd spoke at this week’s Bloomberg Businessweek Design conference in San Francisco. This preview of his design for a new Charles Schultz retrospective (as shared on Twitter by @aarieff) is a masterful illustration of the book’s title: Only What’s Necessary.

Hightail’s VP of Design, Bill Wetherell was also impressed with Chip Kidd’s talk. Check out Bill’s recent blog post for his highlights from the event.

Is television dying? Global ad agency Digitas asked some clever media types for their opinion and the resulting two-minute video is insightful.
