Doyald Young

Wise words from an incredible individual who left the design community all too soon. Doyald Younga designer, writer, oyung and mentor, regrettably passed away February 28th from complications during heart surgery.

Although this extremely talented and passionate designer is no longer with us, his lifetime of work will carry on and be celebrated by all who encounter it. He ran away from home at the age of 15 and did not complete high school.

Doyald Young – Wikipedia

From there he worked a slew of odd jobs ranging from an usher at Radio City Music Hall to a golf club factory worker. Eventually he landed in Los Angeles and enrolled at Art Center. Specializing in logotypes, typefaces, and trademarks, Young is most widely known for his knack of crafting uniquely beautiful script faces. It is often noted that his innate ability to produce these legendary script faces is nearly unmatched. Whether deliberately or unknowingly, you have certainly had the privilege of viewing his work.


Young was also a professor at the Art Center College of Design in California where he was named the Inaugural Master of the school for his contributions to the field of art and design.

An inspiration and mentor to the vast number of students he advised over the years, he was much more than just yooung teacher to them. I truly enjoy teaching. There have been many incredibly talented designers in this profession over the years, but it takes a special person to approach both students and the industry with such love and passion. A clip from Lynda.

Young had certainly earned immense respect within the design community and inhe received one of the most coveted design awards, the AIGA medalwhich honored his commitment doyzld excellence within the field of graphic design.

Even to those who never knew him, like me, his legacy is truly inspiring.
