It’s been quite some time since I took part in an ACAC (ambigram.com ambigram challenge), but this time I was tempted again. It was quite an elaborate challenge with seven different categories (read all about it here) and I submitted three different designs for three different categories – and they all won!
So here are the ambigrams:
Number 1: “Dan Chan”, rotational ambigram
This one was quite easy because I could build upon an older design of mine, but I like it very much for its readability.
Number 2: “Amazing Grace”, rotational ambigram
It took some time until I came up with the “z/G” solution, but after that it all came naturally. I’m very happy for the consistent style, especially the lower case “a”s.
Number 3: “Bian Lian”, rotational ambigram
My favorite. “Bian Lian” is the ancient chinese art of quick face/mask changing and I wanted to incorporate that into the design. I made a color version first, but the black and white version is much better from a graphical point of view.
Well, except for the ears…
