What an amazing legacy Doyald Young has left behind. I will miss seeing him and laughing with him. He was a iconic figure that was so down to earth and matter a fact. He frequented San Diego AIGA events and told the best stories.
I had the extreme pleasure of exchanging emails with him regarding a limited edition poetry book that I was working on. He had no problem with me telling him that I was inspired by his classic cartouche to make a logo for sex, drugs, rock and roll. He taught me to get off the computer and trust myself more. I'm so grateful for his help and expertise. I will miss his stories of groupies wanting him to sign their chests and his youthful exploits.
