Wow, Hayes. I'm impressed. This has a sense of style to it, and it evokes the word well too. I didn't read it as 'dip' straight away, but now that I know what it says that's all I see. Kudos!!

Very cool. The fun part is working with them in a layout situation. It opens up a lot of interesting possibilities to the overall design. Have fun;)

Great Concept, i love it.

Maybe if you try to make the d and p round smaller, it seem like a head with big ears btw.

Yeah, this works great. I read it as "dip" right away, and didn't realize it was an ambigram until seeing it on the logopond front page a second time.

Yeah, I know what you mean Ryan. I think it's because typical ambigrams are based on script & blackletter typefaces, they almost look 'antique'.

Although I was looking at Aztec/Inca carvings whilst sketching this up, I wanted to set it apart from the typical ones by giving it a more 'futuristic' edge.

Thanks :)

I think a real sense of achivement will come to you if you use some harder letters while practicing. The three letters used are a little easy but if its your first time in using this technique why not.
There are reasons to using ambigrams. Beginning a project saying to yourself you want to make an ambigram and then finding letters to work around it isnt really the reality of the professional world.

Yeah I see what you're saying, I decided to start off with a 3 letter form & then see where I'm at from there...

I did upload a slightly more complicated one last night;

Nice mate nice. My only point would be that it would be nice to use a more fluid font (like your 'beast' example) so that you also get that kind of 'dip' feeling. 'Dip' to me suggests things like: fluid, water, flowing, smooth, relaxing etc.

Hey Kev, I see what you're saying, in way that's why I didn't take that approach...to me, being hard edge & slightly unsettling it makes the eye complete the ambigram process.

If it 'were' calming (& this is just my opinion) I'd imagine people look at it, be content & then stop thinking about it, making the ambigram motion a little muted.

The initial concept was; "I want to 'dip' it into the (logo)pond." :)

I do like the 'dip,' idea, but I read 'clip,' only because of the following:

9th Row, 3rd Column.

Still good though.
