Ambigrams are words that can be read in more than one direction, and were popularized by Dan Brown’s novel (and subsequent movie) “Angels and Demons”.

Designed by John Langdon, the Illuminati ambigrams – all of which can be read as the same word upside-down – captured the public imagination, and began a renaissance of sorts in the use of ambigrams.

Edit: The ambigram below is not my design; it is a computer-generated ambigram from FlipScript’s Ambigram Generator. [link] Mea culpa, Mark!😳

For inspiration, John Langdon’s site [link] has an extensive portfolio of his past works, and VectorTuts has a lovely selection of some really cool ambigrams as well. [link]

And why not share your ambigram with a link here in the comments section? It’ll be interesting to start a little collection of our own!:mrgreen:

    That Jaredee ambigram is not by you.

    You can crumple the letters all you want. It’s still very clear that ambigram came from FlipScript.com.

    @Mark
    Ouch! Lesson learnt the hard way. I’ve edited the post to give due credit to FlipScript. Sorry!😦

    @kenwooi
    If you find it again, do put it up on your blog. I would really like to see it.🙂

    @Brian
    You can give your kudos to John Langdon for that. Genius!😀
