This month we are focusing on stories related to the theme of Ampersand (&).
This month we are playing around with a piece of type that is one of my favorites: the ampersand. As we play with that as a design element we are also identifying + telling stories of the “and” space (as my friend Liz Lamoreux calls it): the space between where we feel multiple feelings all at the same time. Join us this month as we dive into ampersands.
Initial story ideas for this theme include:
Do you have an “and” story. You & me. Highs & lows. Pick one and tell it.
Ampersands can be the coolest shape. How can you incorporate one into a story you have on your heart right now?
Maya Angelou’s poem “Still I Rise” is all about continuing on + persevering. Tell a story about an “I rise” moment in your own life.
