#westelmlocal in Kansas City 08.19.2014

Have you heard the exciting news??? WEST ELM IS COMING TO KANSAS CITY!!!!!!!!! As if we weren’t excited enough about this, we have a little (BIG) announcement to go along with it!

They are doing something really cool, called #westelmlocal and they have decided to partner with a select few local makers for handcrafted goods…all from LOCAL artisans!

We couldn’t possibly be more excited to announce that we are one of those local makers!!! That’s right, you can now find Ampersand Design Studio products at the brand new West Elm store on the Country Club Plaza!!!!!!!! AHHH…..we are pinching ourselves to be collaborating with one of our very favorite stores! We’ll have a few of our favorite products there including our brand new “Kansas City” tote bags in both styles AND a new addition to our line-up is our ampersand screen prints in a new size: 8″ x 10″ (which happens to fit perfectly in many of our favorite West Elm’s picture frames)!

a fashion-loving graphic designer’s dream 08.12.2013

For two graphic designers (who met in Typography class), that happen to love fashion as well, this little team-up couldn’t be any more exciting for us. UNIQLO and House Industries have partnered together to make some pretty eye-catching, typographic fashion statements! Check it out here!
