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.

Beer Label Design

19 Mar

As a person who is a complete label shopper, I am totally in love with well designed beer and wine labels. Check out these 15 Awesomely Artistic Brew Labels.

I’m also a huge fan of New Belgium Brewery’s Explore Series labels.

And I of course have to give a shout out to Bloomington’s very own Upland Brewery.

Guinness and an Ampersand

A couple weeks ago I was at a local bar and restaurant, The Irish Lion, ordered a Guinness and was brought this glass. I squealed loudly with joy when I noticed the ampersand on the glass and obviously had to share it. Ignore the crappy phone camera quality!

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!

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!)

In the past couple days I’ve been coming across a ton of great magazine layout design. It’s always interesting to see how different designers make information aesthetically pleasing.








Moustache Love

11 Nov

In addition to ampersands, I hold moustaches (or mustaches) very close to my heart. I love moustache products, tattoos, jewelry, design, illustration, and most moustache-related art. Here are some inspiring staches.





I’m sure there will be many more mustaches and mustache things to come!

Ampersand Love

3 Nov

Like many typography lovers out there, I have an obsession with ampersands. The ampersand to me is the most unique, beautiful, and variable character of any typeface. I love using it as a design element in addition to is traditional use to represent “and.” So, here are all the ampersand things I’ve been drooling over lately.

 

I’m sure I’ll be posting more ampersand things in the future. Oh, and I also love semicolons.
