Description: This is the identity for my freelance business. Still working out the colors. I invite as much feedback as possible, specifically, were you able to read the name as "chirp"? An ambigram's a tough thing to pull off! Thanks for your interest.

hi there,**I like the identity, enough to click on it out of a whole page of others (then again I also have a taste for ambigrams) When it was small I read %22Chip%22 and then thought there must be another letter as the space was bigger so thought it must be an %22r%22. **I see it is an handwritten %22r%22, but the fact that it doesn't have a line curling to the right kind of makes it tricky to pick out as an %22r%22, but that could just be me being crap at reading handwriting!

Hey Joe,**Thank you for the kind words, I appreciate your comments. I have a small concern that people will read %22chip%22, and no knock against Ponch or John, they're fine California Highway Patrolmen, I just happened to name my business %22chirp%22 and I'd like my logo to reflect that!**I tried to strike a balance between legibility of the %22r%22 and being mindful of both the i-r ligature as well as making sure the r functions as the %22h%22 tail in the ambigram. I'm curious if others are having chip/chirp confusion (or CCC in the biz' lingo)...**Thanks again Joe!

what's cool is it fits you, has a purpose and not just a made up ambigram.

I was able to read the word right away. Great work. I do like your updated version better though. It has more character.
