  1. I have loved see­ing this series grow and evolve. I still think it deserves a gallery show- Ordi­nary & Extra­or­di­nary: The Life of the Amper­sand in Art
    I’ve come back to your site a few times, just to look at the grow­ing col­lec­tion.

    1. Thanks, Deb­bi. Some­times it gets in the way of my sched­uled projects, but I always (some­how) com­plete each one by mon­th’s end, and the sat­is­fac­tion of achiev­ing that goal then pro­pels me to keep my oth­er projects on track, on dead­line. Thanks for revis­it­ing the site from time to time. Do you not get the month­ly issue? You can sub­scribe on the home page.

  2. Hi Chaz,
    Love the designs. Are these for clients or just spec? They’re real­ly fun in either case.
    Nice to meet you at the hik­ing group pic­nic Sun­day.

    1. Hi Lori
      The amper­sand series — graph­ic design using com­mon phras­es that con­tained “and” or the amper­sand itself — start­ed out as a mar­ket­ing cam­paign, send­ing 4x6 inch post­cards to cor­po­rate mar­ket­ing depart­ments and agen­cies. After the first few, I real­ized how enjoy­able & chal­leng­ing it was, decid­ing then to con­tin­ue as a per­son­al project, cre­at­ing posters rather than post­cards, gen­er­at­ing at least one per month. I named the project Amper­Art, devel­oped a web­site, and soon dis­cov­ered how many “amper­fans” there are out there. Even­tu­al­ly I hope to cre­ate Amper­Art prod­ucts to offer on the web­site, Ama­zon, Pin­ter­est & Etsy. But the posters will always be free. I plan to cre­ate one every month as long as I can push a pen­cil & a pix­el. See you at the next pic­nic — hope­ful­ly with Amper­Art posters for every­one that per­tain to the sport of hik­ing.

    1. Kitt, thanks for check­ing out my per­son­al design project. It’s the one thing that keeps me dis­ci­plined. Hope you sub­scribed. I’ll vis­it your blog next. When’s the par­ty at YOUR house?

  3. Hi Chaz,
    These Posters have been a month­ly trea­sure to receive each & every month Thank You. Here’s to a Won­der­ful & Safe New Year. Thank You again Chaz

    1. Thanks, Lar­ry. Peo­ple like you keep me excit­ed about cre­at­ing them. Your Mick­ey spoon that stirs my cof­fee every morn­ing helps them hap­pen, too. Hap­py New Year!
