Art Center Establishes Doyald Young Memorial Scholarship

Award-winning graphic and logotype designer, cherished mentor and revered faculty member Doyald Young, who passed away earlier this year, will be honored by his alma mater, Art Center College of Design, with The Doyald Young Memorial Scholarship, it was revealed today by Art Center President Dr. Lorne M. Buchman.

The scholarship, which will be available to incoming and current Graphic Design students, will be formally announced at “Young Love” a celebration of Young’s life and legacy taking place at the College this weekend. With enough support, the College intends to endow the scholarship to benefit its students in perpetuity.

“Shortly before his passing, Doyald said, ‘if you have the gift of teaching, you must pass it on,’” Dr. Buchman recalled. “In establishing the Doyald Young Memorial Scholarship it is our hope that we honor the generosity and strength of a gifted artist and powerful teacher—and encourage others in that same spirit of giving to ensure his legacy in the next generation.”
