As the title of this design suggests, I was heavily inspired by DC Comics' caped crusader, Batman. In contrast to the curvy, fragmented structure of 'Ampersand 01', I felt a more aggressive, jagged style would suit that of the Batman. You can view my entire collection of ampersand designs here!
I didn't want to over-complicate the design by adding too many of Batman's features because I wanted to avoid losing the form of the ampersand, so instead, I decided to go with a minimalistic approach and only use the cowl, gauntlets and symbol on the chest. I intended for the cape to be interpreted by the viewer through the sweeping motion of the ampersand.
