Ampersands & Monograms
Created 3 various ampersands and 2 monograms. Explored the basic techniques of type design.
Explored one of the more expressive letterforms in the Latin alphabet—the ampersand—and combine it with two other uppercase letterforms to create a monogram or three ornamental drop caps.
The ampersand has traditionally been an enormously playful part of any type designer’s workflow, with designers using it to muse on the expressive potential of the typeface and exaggerate personality in a letter that does not appear in use frequently enough to become overwhelming in a paragraph.
