Ambigram: suggestions?
0

Long time absent from the forums - my hard drive fried a while back and sad to say I lost the font I'd been working on. Onward and upward.

Here's an ambigram I'm drawing up of my name. I think I have the basic shapes solved, but it's feeling kind of discombobulated in terms of rhythm. Any suggestions as to how it could be corrected?

It reads pretty well. The main source of the "discombobulated" aspect is probably the lowercase n/e, which creates a mismatched double letter. See if you can rework it into a capital E, matching the I/E as much as you can. Also, I think you can make the L/G clearer both ways by attaching the bottom loop of the L at the bottom end instead, then making it much bigger for the g counter.

Awesome feedback; thanks! I'm having trouble understanding what you mean about the L/G though. Here's a newer version.

Excellent polish; it's looking great now.
Here's quick scribble of what I was thinking of, keeping in mind I may be wrong about it:

I'm having trouble reading that as an L, I'm afraid. But I agree there's probably a better solution for that combination - how does this strike you?

Very clever indeed, and and it adds a lot of visual appeal.
