I have been tasked with designing a friend’s album cover and fancy taking a stab at making an ambigram. Does anyone have any experience of making them, and have pointers? I’d rather not use an online generator.
I have zero zero zero experience at this, but first thing I would do is put a mirror at the top of my sketchbook and start scribbling. Cant wait to see what you come up with though!
check out Alchemy, it’s a grwat aplication for sketching and let’s you do various types of real-time mirroring.
it’s best with a tablet or stylus of course
I did a few (fairly bad) ambigrams for a book a few years ago. Think about the outside and work in, I seem to recall. I used illustrator or something, making one side, copying , pasting and rotating. Rinse and repeat over and over and over again as you tweak.
So this didn’t end up “being selected” by the band in question. But I really enjoyed ambigraming.
At the moment I am drafting my next tattoo which will be an ambigram of my daughter’s name and the word LOVE.
The design needs tweaked and finessed by professional first though.
This is so cute!! 20 characters of adorableness, even
