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!

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.
