Introducing Art School Totes!

Ampersand Design Studio

Sometimes we design things with other people in mind, and sometimes we just design the exact damn thing that we want and need in our lives for ourselves… and of course hope you love them too!! That’s exactly what we did with our new Art School Totes.

They are all handmade - printing and assembly - right here in Kansas City! We partnered with Sandlot Goods to bring these to life because 1) we only wanted the best quality bags and 2) they happen to be very good people and friends!

Check out the neon yellow embroidery on the side pocket and the discreet little “Made in Kansas City” embossed on the handle. We’re LOVING these details!

We carry ours EVERYwhere! Sometimes its our laptop bag, sometimes its our park date bag, sometimes its a stand in for our purse. Whatever you turn it into, we just hope you love them as much as we do!

An inspiring evening with Bobby Berk

We met Bobby Berk and OMG we love him even more now than we did before - if that’s even possible!!! We’re huge fans of Queer Eye (even if it pretty much always makes us cry!) and have been so super excited that Bobby and the rest of the crew have been in Kansas City for the last couple of months filming their next season… or is it seasons?! :) We love spotting them around town and seeing which of our favorite KC spots they’re discovering now.

When our friend (and owner of Golden & Pine - swoon!), Stephanie, approached us about the event she was hosting with Bobby himself, we were thrilled to help pitch in with a little design work. Stephanie and her team thought of everything! Perfectly crafted cocktails, a gorgeous spread of food, a beautiful outdoor setting… we could go on!

Bobby answered questions, shared design advice, and told stories for over an hour, while we all listened, laughed, and maybe shed a tear or two. He was just so genuine and inspiring! We’ll hold on to all of his advice and insight for a long time!

Premium Planners with Blue Sky

Ampersand Design Studio

ACS_0518_revised.jpg

We have something special to announce today!!! An ultra-premium, limited-edition planner collection with Blue Sky!

Long before we began our partnership with Blue Sky, we were planner-girls. The two of us have always had a strong appreciation for a nicely organized and well-designed planner, so when we began to partner with Blue Sky years ago, it felt as if it was meant to be. The idea that we get to apply our artwork in these premium quality materials, like pebbled vegan leather, screen-printed fabric, and high gloss ink, to planners that let people express their own personal style on a daily basis is a bit of a dream come true! We couldn't be more thrilled to share this latest, and dare we say, greatest, planner collection with you!! Find it exclusively at BlueSky.com

Blue Sky’s Premium Planner is designed to simplify your life. Each section replaces the need for a separate planner, using their All-In-One planning system to solve the problem of juggling multiple organizing tools. It has a section for monthly and weekly planning that includes a weekly to-do list, goal setting, and note taking, plus a notebook section, contacts pages, and a pocket for storage. The Premium Planner aims to streamline your busy professional and personal plans, helping you meet your goals along the way.

Ampersand for Mixbook!

Our latest collaboration is with Mixbook and we couldn't be more excited to tell you guys about it! We've always loved sharing and documenting our adventures, but have never been big into scrapbooking because, well honestly we just couldn't seem to find the time to make it happen. Mixbook is this super easy way to get pictures off of our devices so we can enjoy them in a photo book customized with our own personal touch! We love that each piece of art and hand lettering in this Mixbook design is created by hand - by us, for you! We're super excited to be able to give you guys a way to document your own moments!! Before we tell you more about our first book...we also wanted to share a coupon code for $25 off any new customer orders. Just use the code: AMP25 (expires 10/1/18).
