Forest Young is a designer and educator whose knowledge ranges widely and who challenges audiences in unexpectedly delightful ways. At Wolff Olins, he leads design initiatives for the world’s most influential companies and recently completed a brand refresh for Uber. His work has been exhibited at MoMA, he is the recipient of many awards, and he is a graduate of the graphic design program at Yale University. In this episode, we talk about, well, just about everything.
