I was commissioned by Jessica Walsh to work on the rebranding of the previous Sagmeister & Walsh to the brand new &Walsh. The new branding uses an ampersand for both the visual identity and tonal expression. This typographic system includes our clients, projects, collaborators, experiments & endeavors: hence the (Blank) & Walsh.The ampersand is one of the most beautiful typographic characters and will challenge ourselves to continuously reinvent its form.
It took many talented people to complete this project. For my part, I imagined and designed multiple different spaces where the ampersands can live and interact with.
