Recycling: An Infographic

5 Jul

I stumbled upon this infographic today, and due to my love of information, good design, and recycling, I had to share it!

And because this is The Amperstache….I obviously have to show you this awesome stache t-shirt, available for purchase on Threadless.

Ampersand Inspired Invites

10 Feb

Much thanks to Allison for this link! These invites are so beautiful; I love how most of them use the mark as a design feature as well as punctuation. I might use some of these as inspiration for the wedding invites I’m designing. Click the image to check out even more!

Mustache as word

5 Jan

Who says you can’t replace words with mustaches?

Also, today I saw a commercial (I think for Clean & Clear) in which a woman laughing joyously about how smooth her skin is drinks coffee out of a mustache mug! The staches are spreading to mass media! It looked similar to the one below.

Beatlestache

9 Dec

I stumbled across this amazing Beatles poster yesterday, and thought it was necessary to share, especially since yesterday was the 30th anniversary of John Lennon’s assassination. Also, a photo of John with an amazing moustache.

“Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one”

I’ve been on a slab-serif typeface kick lately; Rockwell is a classic, and Lubalin Graph is incredibly beautiful, but I’m always looking for more great faces. Here are the best slab-serif fonts I’ve found and downloaded for free within the last week! (And a lot of them have awesome ampersands!)
