Ampersands : a 25 year love affair

by Fred Showker

20th Annual Fall Fonts Festival lead_ampersandFrom the first designs for the DT&G and Design Center branding, the ampersand played a big part. Even as we rolled out printed newsletters, t-shirts, coffee mugs and all, the bright red Ampersand carried our look. We had no idea in 1988 that some day there would be a web site called "Pinterest" with more ampersands than one person could see in a lifetime! Wow. This is our LAST ampersands surf. If you're an ampersand lover too, just search Pinterest. And don't forget to pick up your free Ampersands Poster. We love those ampersands!
