I'm an avid ambigram designer, and have been the content editor & writer for Ambigram.com for approximately 4 years now. Recently I've started working on a book called Ambigrams Revealed, which has been accepted by PeachPit Press & will be published in March 2013. The book will be an international collection of ambigrams, case studies, tutorials and other content, along with a phenomenal judging panel which consists of three well known ambigram artists/critics and three well known graphic designers.
i am currently designing a logo/ID for myself. i already have a base of a logo under a different name but i wanted to try something insorporating my name.
i have been trying for weeks to create a ambigram piece that i like, but have not yet come up with something i have grown fond of. i have experimented with different fonts but all i seem to be doing is creating more things that im not too keen on.
i was hoping someone could help me to create something that is fluid and easy to work out, yet still have a sense of modern design. i am willing to use and fonts/styles.
i'll start with a blue peter moment, here is one i made earlier:
ps. the name i am using is LOWE.
I'm in the process of creating my own visual identity and am looking for any advice on how to proceed. Let me explain the project briefly. I've settled on a word mark built around an ambigram of my initials, A,B. The ambigram will serve as a watermark for my illustration work and acts as a distinct element - i'm not planning on keeping the wordmark and ambigram together in the final layout.
The ambigram is meant to resemble a percentage mark by joining the letter 'a' on top of the 'b'. The forward slash though is only at a 15 degree angle, so I'm wondering if it's enough to make it look like a percentage mark, not just a unified a+b.
