Well done, great try!!!

janzabransky said on Jun. 23 '10

Thanks Terry, I thought this word with its meaning should be good executed as ambigram.

TernaciousT said on Jun. 23 '10

Its not only the meaning that works well, love the way you created the G and the type in general, all customised text I'd guess? One critique change the background to just one dark colour and this should go straight to Gallery.

At the smaller size it's more readable than when it's bigger. That, in itself, is an enigma. Nice work!

janzabransky said on Jun. 23 '10

Yes youre right ... its not schwabach which is used often on ambigrants, but geometrically based custom made typo. Thanks for advise with bg, I will consider it. I am maybe crazy but at this time I like that white little creature on upper left corner as part of a background texture. It was not my intention to draw it, really. It looks so enigmatic and mysterious to me. What the hell it is? Squirrel? Does anybody else see it too? :-)

Nice Jan, the name certainly does sum up the ambigram. :)

janzabransky said on Jun. 23 '10

Thank you guys a lot for giving me feedback.

dotflo said on Jun. 23 '10

this is sooo cool...

TernaciousT said on Jun. 24 '10

I prefer that bg, the ambigram really jumps of it now.

janzabransky said on Jun. 24 '10

Thanks for suggestion Terry, You was right :)

Lecart said on Jun. 24 '10

it's interesting how well the G reads, though it doesn't really look like a G. great work.

Gotty said on Jun. 24 '10

G R E A T !

siah-design said on Jun. 26 '10

Great stuff, Jan!

andreasvnielsen said on Jun. 26 '10

I think this a bit poor logo. You can just find a "ambigram generator" (google it) and you write enigma, and so have you a logo!

raja said on Jun. 26 '10

I don't think it's a poor logo, ambigrams take a lot of blood sweat and tears. I know janzabransky can create awesome conceptual logos and I am sure this is original work.

At the same time I agree with... let me cut and paste the screename... andreasvnielsen that any word/s can be made into ambigrams easily with online generators. For instance, if you use the word 'enigma' on the site below...

"click flipscript.com":http://www.flipscript.com/ , you will see what I mean.

Sorry to break it to logopond...but hey, with a couple of tweaks, whose gonna know right?

nido said on Jun. 26 '10

^wow... I just checked that out... thats brilliant!.. if its that simple from now on I just wont be so impressed by ambigrams anymore...

BK said on Jun. 29 '10

well done

oski said on Jul. 15 '10

Good work Jan.

janzabransky said on Jul. 16 '10

Thank you guys for comments. @Andreas, please dont take it so seriously, this was made just for fun :-)

ideoma said on Jul. 16 '10

i read a bit "enisma" i think if you cut the void space inside the "g" it would be more functional =)

pryczkat said on Aug. 21 '10
