ampersands on Broadway #7: Ben at Happy Coffee

Ben Schweizer takes espresso orders at Happy Coffee with an ampersand on his bicep, a burr grinder and Chemex glassware in the background; Ben had a contemplative explanation for how he chose this tattoo, combining his interests in typography, etymology and literature

the form of this ampersand, combining three simple arcs and a line, seems to fit the functional minimalism of Happy Coffee’s furniture and fixtures, but surely Ben carries it with him into more chaotic settings …

the design is a Bryan Angelo Lim creation for the 2010 charity font project FontAid IV, a collection of 400 ampersands to represent the concept of “coming together"

(seventh in a series — typography on Broadway may be intimate or visible for miles; focusing on the typographic form of ampersands is both a simple delight and a way to illustrate Baker’s diversity)
