Welcome to today's Typo Feature!
In this ongoing series each article will focus on a specific theme and showcase deviations that manage to convey the theme in a special and great manner.
This feature's theme will be ambigrams.
Ambigrams are a subform of Caligraphy, usually keeping up the style of being drawn by brush or pen, but often with stricter, more geometric forms.
The most famous kind of Ambigrams are those, in which when rotated 180° you will see the same image. Another popular form are Mirror-Image Ambigrams, which result in the same artwork when flipped horizontally or vertically.
Some artists manage to place two words in one Ambigram. By rotating or flipping the artwork, a new word can be read.
There are many forms of ambigrams, some easier to create than others. Words can be natural rotational ("suns" or "pod") or mirror-image ("bud") ambigrams.
Ambigrams are popular elements in logo designs, as they give a high level of back detection from the audience.
Read about Ambigrams on Wikipedia or visit the Open Directory section on Ambigrams for more examples.
I hope you enjoyed this feature and maybe it even inspired you, to create your own ambigram. If you do, please share them with us
