David Young has spent his entire career at the leading edge of emerging technologies. In 2018, after almost thirty years of doing client-based design innovation, he started to emphasize generative art and other new media experiences.
His current work explores how beauty and aesthetic experiences can give a fresh start to how we think about new technologies. This work, which uses AI and machine learning, is a return to his roots where he began his career at the height of the 1980’s AI boom.
David has a masters degree in visual studies from the MIT Media Lab, and a bachelors degree in computer science from UCSC. Over the course of his career he founded a cutting-edge design studio, worked for design agencies, worked in-house, and independently consulted. He has served on the board of AIGA/LA, and taught at both Art Center College of Design and Parsons at The New School. His design work has been recognized with a wide range of press and awards — including a Gold Medal from Businessweek & IDSA.
David is based in Brooklyn, NY.
