Doyald Young : Lettering and Type Design

Today I learned the sad news that Doyald Young passed away. If you’re not familiar with the name I’m sure you’re familiar with his work. He’s designed hundreds of well know logotypes.

I only met him once but I had the chance to spend a bit of time with him over the course of a weekend while he was in NYC for a TDC event. The typographic world and indeed the world in general is a less rich place with his passing. His legacy and impact will be felt for a very long time. I’ll miss him.
