Art Center Adventure!

A big shout out to Catherine Zanghi who did a stellar job shooting these wonderful photos. You can see more of our Art Center adventure here.
Thanks to everyone who came along on the big yellow bus to Art Center. Who can forget our driver Anita getting lost in L.A. with Leslie and Brandy guiding us there using their phone apps? It was an amazing day and terrific to connect with our extraordinary alumni Paola, Andrea, Luisa, Enrique and Jesse over lunch. Talk about inspiring! We thank Juana, Nicola, Nik and Kit for organizing such a memorable visit that included gallery tours and classroom visits where we saw the students and teachers in action. The long, strong relationship we have with Art Center has lasted for decades. On the trip back it was clear that the seeds of dreams were planted in a new generation of designers who hope to continue their studies at Art Center in Pasadena.

One year after his passing, we remember the Poet of Letterforms. The power and inspiration of Doyald Young's ideas continue to inform and guide us at San Diego City College Graphic Design. He did it for the love of life and the love of letters.
This film celebrating Doyald Young from is worth seeing again and again.
