We are all deeply saddened by the death of Doyald Young
earlier this week. His contributions are many—as typographer, logotype
designer, teacher and author—and he will be missed.
In 2009, I had the pleasure of meeting Doyald,
briefly, in Memphis at the AIGA Conference. For those of us that did not have the chance to get to know
him personally, the documentary Doyald Young, Logotype Designer on Lynda.com is no substitute, but gives us a
glimpse of this legendary typographer and his love of detail.
