The New Republic Ampersand

The New Republic Ampersand

The New Republic was purchased by Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes and yesterday they launched their extensive redesign by Dirk Barnett. In addition to the magazine, the revamped New Republic includes a brand new website in addition to an iPad app. Dirk Barnett reached out to us to illustrate an ampersand for the first issue of the redesign to lead the Book & The Arts section. We designed this ampersand using iron fillings and magnets, and photographed it for the magazine. For the iPad edition, we filmed the process of making it.
