Chaz DeSimone’s 50th AmperArt release is appropriately titled Fifty & Fabulous.
There’s nothing all that clever in this design…the ampersand is the AmperArt logo, a modified Garamond italic, & the words are set in the AmperArt brand identity font, Helvetica.
What is special, though, is you—for taking a look at each of my portrayals of “the ampersand as fun & fabulous art” every month.
Whether you’ve recently subscribed or have seen all 50 from the start, thank you for joining our community of ampersand afficianados & thank you for mentioning AmperArt to your friends who are fans of the ampersand just like we are.
Fifty & Fabulous is usually heard around the time people are nearing the half-century mark in their lives. (Of course, we don’t see them as “old,” today’s 50 being the new 30.) So it might be a nice & simple birthday gesture to frame a print or make a card for the Birthday Boy or Girl featuring the new Fifty & Fabulous AmperArt design.
FREE 11X17 ART POSTER: Download to print a POSTER here. It’s an impressive 11×17 inches, easily printed at a copy or office supplies store. Same size poster frames are readily available, too.
