AASHINI – Rotational Ambigram

October 13, 2009 1 comment

I tried another method of the ‘s-h’ combination from here. I didn’t think the other version would fit in with the font. This took me but 20 minutes, I just used shapes form older designs and combined them.

As for the big flowing lines surrounding the word, tell me if it screws up the aesthetics of the overall piece…

EDIT:
Following up on John Langdon’s comment (which surprisingly coincided exactly with what I didn’t like about this piece.)

I removed those irritating flowing lines from around the piece. Adding elements like that, to me, seems the visual equivalent of forcing the rhyme in a poem. I hate people who force their poems to rhyme…
I also lengthened the ‘H & S’. I initially ad trouble deciding what aspect of the ‘h’ to lengthen, the stem, or the ‘curve’. If I made the stem too long it messed with the viewers perception of the ‘s’, so I went with the latter. Although, now the ‘h’ is floating a couple of centimetres above the other letters… but we have to compromise 🙂
