Ampersand Love.

Its a strange looking character. One, which I have not mastered drawing.
The Ampersand – & & & &
It symbolically represents a word which does not hold much meaning in isolation. It has the power to connect to separate elements.
It somehow reminds me of the treble clef – there was something so satisfying with drawing hundreds of them, during my years in the choir (13 years to be exact…yes, I was a high soprano – don’t judge me!).
However, I feel like there has been a resurgence in the ampersand within the design world. I keep seeing it pop up everywhere.
I have seen an ampersand resurgence. The design world has really embraced this symbol. The more I look at it, the more I fall in love with it. I love its fluidity – no wonder a lot of typographers love it!
Don’t gloss over this little character – once bought to the forefront, with it distinctive shape and form…it has  a lot to offer!
