Ampersand for Mixbook!

Ampersand Design Studio

unnamed-2.jpg

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).

Field Trip is Back!

Ampersand Design Studio

FT18_Ampersand.jpg

Field Trip is back and we are counting down the days! Field Trip is a pattern and illustration event that we helped conceive with a small, diverse group of established artists in 2016. This year, it takes place on Monday, May 21, 2018, in a beautiful, light-filled loft, close to other Design Week events taking place on the same day at the Javits Center.

Our goal in starting Field Trip three years ago was to depart from trade show norms. We wanted to show our work in a more curated and intimate setting, where artists and clients could relax and really enjoy the experience of engaging with one another. The concept was successful from the outset, resulting in many exciting collaborations with leading retailers.

The show gives clients and artists the chance to get together, review new artwork for purchase or license, and discuss collaborations. Clients can expect to see beautiful prints, patterns and illustrations, in a variety of different styles — from clean and organic, to bold and graphic, to quirky and hand-painted.

The show is fun and informal. Guests can sip cocktails, sample the candy bar, and listen to great music, while browsing through stunning artwork from artists with well-established brands.

The event was conceived by artists, and is totally planned by the artists participating — it’s a really inspiring collaboration for all of us.

NEW ART PRINTS!!!

Ampersand Design Studio

ampersand_artprint_1.jpg

When we first launched our online shop in 2011 (on etsy at the time), art prints were our very first product. The dream of having our art, that we have created by hand, end up on the walls of your home, is a thought that has always driven us. It's like sending a bunch of unicorn babies out into the world and we can't wait to see where they land! Today, we're SO excited to be launching brand NEW ART!!! We love to use cut paper, paint, and just good old pen and ink. Color has always been our biggest inspiration and passion. We combined all of our favorite mediums and colors and created one big dream collection!!

Each of our art prints is printed on the highest quality velvet fine art paper with Epson archival pigment inks. You'll be shocked at the amazing color! Choose between 8”x10” and 11”x14”. Frame it, tack it up on your bulletin board, or give it as a gift. We just hope it makes you smile!

We want to fight for equal rights, peace, and justice, and hope you do too. So when we've gotten all that accomplished in one day, sometimes we've just gotta have a little fun, right?

BIG, BIG, BIG NEWS!!!!!!!!!!! AMPERSAND AT TARGET!!

Ampersand Design Studio

AmpersandforTarget_5.jpg

We love Target!! We do! So when we found out that our line of planners and calendars was chosen to be placed in EVERY. SINGLE. TARGET. STORE, We felt like it was a little hard to believe. But just as of 10:30pm last night when we went on a Target run to pick up some supplies for the studio, it all became super real. We both stopped in our tracks as we spotted our collection on the shelves! So here we are today, SO EXCITED (and a little more polished than our live instagram video-yikes) to share this collection with you!!!

Our partner, Blue Sky, produces the best quality agendas and calendars, so we cannot wait for you guys to get your hands on these. The collection features painterly brushstrokes, hand drawn lettering, and hand stamped patterns in a variety of bold black and white and pops of fun color!! We have a couple of 8.5 x 11 formats, a couple of fabric-covered 5 x 8s and a couple of monthly desk pads (22" x 17"), so hopefully, we have all of your 2017 planning needs met! We keep the pages clean and simple so there is plenty of open space to fill in your glorious plans for 2017!!
