A glyph for “and/or” statements.
Are you ready for the greatest and/or strangest logogram ever created? Then it’s time to embrace the andorsand!
“Popularizing a new logogram like the andorsand today might be as straightforward as getting it incorporated into digital technologies people use on a regular basis.”—Kurt Kohlstedt on 99percentinvisible.org
So now we have the perfect symbol for “and/or” statements, but how can we start using it?
If you are a font designer, consider adding the andorsand to your font. If you do, send me a link and I’ll feature your font on this site.
I’m also inviting artists and designers to submit their versions of the andorsand, which I’ll feature on this site’s gallery.
That may sound crazy, but remember that I successfully got the 🪀 emoji added to unicode version 12 in 2018. If you’d like to learn more about that, watch this video!
The interrobang is a non-standard punctuation mark (‽) indicating a question expressed in an exclamatory manner, as in “what are you doing‽.” To learn more, listen to this fantastic episode of 99 Percent Invisible.
