Doyald Young, Logotype Designer

Last fall, mere months before iconic typeface and logotype designer Doyald Young passed away,Lynda.com produced a wonderful short documentary about him, in which Young tells his incredible rags-to-proverbial-riches story and reveals the principles behind his timeless, unique letterforms and logos. Besides being a design legend, he was also an epitome of the intellectual ideal of curiosity as powerful tool of creative growth.
