RCA Records sounds fun...I'm at TMX Communications in Conshohocken. Doing interactive work, but moving towards print advertising.

Something more interesting/useful than an
ambigram can be seen in the last image here:

It doesn't seem really well executed though.

hrant: Langdon actually does Symbiotagrams that are along that idea...where the word is flipped and it becomes the opposite. True/False etc. I've done a black/white one but it was a little iffy at one point so i never 'finished' it..just have the sketch in my sketch book.

> Langdon actually does Symbiotagrams

Good to know. Even better would be if
he found a nicer term for the things. :-)

BTW, I don't see why the two should
be opposite; anything that says some-
thing else when flipped is already cool.

He's got all sorts of examples of 'irregular' ambigrams, his Philosophy ambigram turns upside down and says Art & Science, he's done figure/ground relationships etc....look here for a few examples: http://johnlangdon.net/asymmetrical.html I think he enjoys playing with the words that the names don't really matter as much as the beauty of the final product. :-)
