For The Love of Type

View this entire Doyald Young, Logotype Designer course and more in the lynda.com Online Training Library®.
     Doyald Young (1926-2011) left school in the 10th grade and began lettering show cards for W.T. Grant Five-and-Dime store in Los Angeles. He studied at the Frank Wiggins Trade School and Art Center College of Design in Pasadena (formerly Art Center School), where he went on to teach hand lettering and logo design for 30 years. He authored several great books on lettering and logo design and released a number of commercial fonts over the course of his long career. Young was always a lover of language and words, and of course letters, which he designed with exquisite detail and craft.
