Lately it seems that I have become attached to something specific in the font world. I have a new appreciation for ampersands, commonly known as the “&” symbol. Certain ones stand out more than others and I firmly believe that they can take a simple logo to the next level. They are becoming a work of art in their own right. Today I wanted to share with you 20 of my favorite ampersands with a huge added bonus….they are all free!
Foglihten No. 06 (1) // Goudy Bookletter 1911 (2) // Quaver Serif (3) // Chopin Script (4) // Delius Swash Caps (5) // Peach Sundress (6) // Rochester (7) // Xiomara (8) // Amperzand (9) // Balt New Century Schoolboook Medium (10) // Champagne and Limousines (11) // Ariadne Sans Condensed (12) //Caviar Dreams (13) // Cursive Standard (14) // St. Nicholas (15) // Strawberry Whipped Cream (16) // You’re Invited (17) // Prata (18) // My Own Topher (19) // Abraham Lincoln (20)
I tried to choose just one that I loved the most and it was hard to do. I can see myself using one down the road if I were to redo my blog logo. I love that it would change the whole look of the logo by just using that one symbol.
What do you think? Do any of the above free fonts and their beautiful ampersands stand out to you? Which would you choose as your favorite?
