I love using ampersands where ever possible in design, they can add both a touch of class in pretty script texts and make the design look ultra modern with big & bold sans serif text like the examples above.
I like the Mac example but I would be more inclined to think that the collection is called & rather than mac & milk because of how bold and dominating it is. I also like the simple decorative style that the first example has.

Also love the Hoefler Text Italic Alternate:



Guess I have a thing for swash!
