The Ampersand Series was created during the 2012 redesign of The New Republic under the creative direction of Dirk Barnett. Each issue, we would commission individual artists to create a unique ampersand.
We created the ampersand series to give the Books and the Arts section a special kicking off point by inviting artists—designers, musicians, sculptors, photographers and choreographers—to visually interpret a section of the magazine that is all about the arts.
Awards and recognition include:
