Incredibly dedicated, immeasurably talented, and among the most generous of individuals, Doyald Young’s influence spanned over 60 years of life as a designer, author, teacher, mentor and friend. Please join us for this special event, Honoring Doyald Young, on Thursday, March 24th, 6:30 PM at the University of San Diego’s Joan Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice.

The evening will feature a list of speakers including Tom Kleimeyer, Tim Needham, Michael Osborne and Petrula Vrontikis, as well as a screening of the recent lynda.com documentary on Doyald’s life and work. A pre-event reception will feature examples of Doyald’s contributions to his craft, along with the opportunity to acquire The Art of the Letter, a limited edition book created in collaboration with Doyald’s dear friends at SMART Papers.

Seating is limited to 300 people, so please arrive early. Admission is $5.00 with 100% of the proceeds going to the Doyald Young Memorial Scholarship to be awarded at the 2011 AIGA San Diego Portfolio Review.
