Young Love: Honoring Doyald Young’s Legacy

by April 5th, 2011

Doyald Young was one of Art Center’s toughest—but most beloved—instructors, one the greatest letterform designers of all time, and a cherished friend and mentor to many.

Celebrate his life and legacy with us this Sunday, April 10, at Young Love, a day of workshops held in his honor and an evening of memories and stories.

To celebrate Young’s work, prominent designers and Art Center instructors will help you learn to draw beautiful curves and letterforms. Join Jill Belle, Stefan G. Bucher, Nils Lindstrom, Ramone Munoz, Chesley Nassaney and Bumsuk Lim for a series of hands-on workshops creating luscious curves in homage to Young. Workshops will be from 1 to 4 p.m. and held in the cafeteria and nearby classrooms. Visit www.35k.com/younglove/workshops.gif for updates to the workshop schedule later in the week.

Then, in the evening, join friends and colleagues of Young for an exhibition of the day’s work and a reception from 5 to 6 p.m. Following the reception will be a screening of the new documentary, Doyald Young, Type Designer directed by Scott Erickson and produced by Lynda.com. Following the documentary, Young’s friends and colleagues will share a few of their favorite memories of this great man.
