70: Name ambigrams
About 32 weeks ago, I dazzled you all with my ambigram of the word ‘ambigram’, and now I’m back to show some more.
These were made for my cousins. They are triplets named Joshua, Jacob, and Jordan, and just like the one before, this is the same whether it’s read rightside-up or upside-down. I’ve got plenty more where that came from.
Continuing the J-name streak, I made one for Jeff. I think Js are just fun to draw.
I made this ambigram for Megan. It was pretty easy once I figured out how to make an M look like an N.
Deborah. My mom. Particularly suited because it reminds me of her handwriting.
Jennifer. Most of these are pretty sloppy, but I’m OK with that. They’re more like prototypes than completed designs. I’ll go back and fix any I really like.
A coupled design, given as a gift to my brother and his wife. (Melinda + Andrew)
For a long time, I’ve been struggling with a good, interesting design for my own name. This is really rough, but I wanted to post it anyway, because I think you can comfortably read “Kyle” in it, and it’s a unique style. It’s also somewhat surprising that it’s an ambigram (at least to me).
This one exhibits reflexive symmetry, but not rotational symmetry. It’s also almost entirely illegible, but I really like it anyway. It says “Jami”, and if you know Jami, you will understand why she is best represented by a design that looks like an angry muppet monster.
I have been challenged. I must defend my honor. (Kai)
Another Update: There’s more where that came from: Even More Ambigrams
