Looks really good. The only thing that's bothering me is the middle 'e' and 'o'. I think they can be a little more pronounced and still be legible. What do you think?

Sorry, but this looks terribly forced. I see nothing gained using an ambigram when the font looks so sub-par.

I disagree with barry, I think it is nearly done and i instantly read 'awesome'

I read it easily as well.

I%B4m not saying it%B4s not readable. But simply rotating the a and w, there are hundreds of better options for a font, like this one: %22awesome%22

But it's an ambigram. The letters have to be rotated.

Ah well. Quite simply: I don%B4t like the font, because the choice doesn't make sense to me, it looks far too old fashioned. Of course, I could be mistaken and Awesome Industries needs one. I automatically associate the font with punk / Motorhead T-shirts.

barryconvex: No offence, but your arguments doesn't really hold. It's a individual discussion whether **you** like the typeface or not - the client picked it out themself. Like logoboom told you, the whole point of ambigrams, is that the letters have to be rotated, in order to be read from both ways.**I also wrote in the description, that the project is work in progress - so it still needs some tlc.

great ambigram! my only complaint would be that there is NOTHING special about the 'industries' text -- gotta compliment the font somehow!

Reply

Genius! @brandclay - I disagree. If you mess around with the non-important text, it takes away from the main part of the logo, which is in the name 'awesome.' 'industries' MUST be nothing special so all the attention gets put on 'awesome'.

That is great to conceive that all on your own. As a love of ambigrams I know the time, dedication and mastery involved in constructing one that works - congratulations!**On a side note, have you seen this?** https://www.wowtattoos.com/tattoos/designs/ambigrams/View-All/Awesome-style-L-ambigram-tattoo-design.html

Muy apreciado amigos.**@raja: Thanks a bunch mate. You are absolutely right. Ambigrams can be a tough nut to crack and the identity for Awesome Ind. was no exception. Hadn't seen something similar until now, thanks for letting me know.
