ZEHRA/SHARIF – Rotational Ambigram Final

October 11, 2009 Leave a comment

All the ‘R’ needed was a curve. A tiny…minute little curve, and suddenly the whole damn word is readable…

Just goes to show … we are truly blind. I managed to figure out the necessity of the curve by writing out the letter 50 times, in various handwritings, then analysing them. Glad to say my knowledge of letter structures, gradually expanding, has just been temporarily sated.

Of course, being me, I still cannot stand the capital ‘A’ in Sharif, but then, I think I’ll rest the project for a while.
Oh, and i did end up breaking the continuous line through the piece. It was just messing with the ‘E’ a bit too much.
Below is my first attempt at ‘decorating’ an ambigram with these things called…colours.
I think it looks pretty pants, but it’s a ‘landmark occasion’, hopefully I’ll get better.

ZEHRA/SHARIF – Rotational Ambigram Draft 2

I made a vectorised version, a lot neater and more uniform.
I changed the ‘R’ in Zehra, to a capital. I am fully aware of the fact that the ‘R’ requires you to have an extremely abstract mind to read, but it’s conflicting with the ‘h’… so well… we’ll see. The three versions are different based on the top of the ‘H’, in Zehra. I cannot determine if any of them are superior in readability. Also, the line going through the letters, spoils the ‘E’ a bit, but if I break it, the whole piece is thrown off.
I’m still not finished…

ZEHRA/SHARIF – Rotational Ambigram Draft 1

A rough, 10 minute sketch. I’m not too happy with the way the ‘R’ turned out in ‘Zehra’. I’m thinking about making it Upper Case, incorporating it’s curve into the curve of the ‘H’ (opposite side).

I’ve also though about making the ‘H’ on the ‘Sharif’ side Upper case…

We’ll see 🙂
I’m just glad that i have a good base to start from. This design could turn out to be really neat.
