Font Aid IV: Ampersand Entries

francis bold's picture

For those who have contributed to the Font Aid IV Project, I thought it would be cool to get a cheeky preview of what you lovely people submitted.

Its not necessarily a crit, just a place to see what different styles and variations you come up with. Feel free to comment how you wish tho.

I went for a simple, circley, wiggly, snowman style :)

And off course what a great thing the Font Aid team are doing to raise money for this tragedy. Good to know there's so many caring people out there.

I noticed there is a heart theme for some of the relief efforts so this ampersand ties into that. I thought it works better as a linking border than an actual ampersand, so this may or may not be the final version.

I know he would have contributed, so I am also submitting the Ampersand from an unreleased font By Jim Rimmer. The font was going to be called "Dubloon" for an edition of Treasure Island that Jim was planning. The font will eventually be release and titled "Rimmer" with proceeds going to a worthy cause.

Thanks hrant, you mean like a plus sign? Sorry I can't handle straight lines very well. Here is a more calligraphic try, indulging in my curve obsession:

integrating straight lines into luscious curves, it seems impossible

That Haiti HAARP ampersand is probably the first instance of a conspiracy theory-based ampersand

Dezcom, that is an pretty unique addition, but the internet-voice inside my head wants to say something witty and inappropriate about safety-belts & segregation... It may be a bit much?

Sulekha Rajkumar's picture

To send or not to send. That is the question.
