The Ampersand is loved by all types of creatives! Its shape has evolved into a variety of styles since it was conceived as a ligature of the letters ‘e’ and ‘t’ from the Latin ‘et’ for ‘and’. You can find a range of ampersand designs across different fonts and typefaces, from cursive script variants to more abstract and experimental styles that stray away from the original ‘et’ shapes. The Ampersand is commonly used as the main subject of art pieces too, where it is appreciated purely for its aesthetics rather than as a form of language. In today’s showcase I present 35 creative examples of the ‘&’ character which have been beautifully decorated to produce interesting designs and illustrations.
