The Late Doyald Young

The late Doyald Young was a typeface designer and professor who specialized in designing logotypes, corporate alphabets and typefaces. When I look at images of his work I melt, it’s beautiful. What I find really interesting is the way in which he is able to incorporate hand lettering into corporate identities, like GE for example. I came across his work when I was trying to do my own hand lettering for a wordmark, my professor told me to check out his work. I am so glad I did.
