ZEHRA/SHARIF – Rotational Ambigram Draft 1

October 7, 2009 Leave a comment


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.

Continuing with the experimentation on gaps…
Maybe I should have made the ‘inverted area’ in the ‘F‘ and the ‘I‘ a bit wider?

I’m doing a bit of experimentation on disjointed letters, and their effects on the perception of the word. Sorry about the lack of straight lines on this one… one of my fingers got stuck in a door 😛
Soon enough I’ll be able to use a mouse again to vectroise this.

EDIT: I vectorised it, but something’s not right…
I feel that maybe it’s too sharp, I should curve it a bit more?
I made two versions, one with gaps in the ‘R’, and one without. Comments on your preference in terms of readability and aesthetics?

My second attempt for the ACAC. I actually sent this one in. Continuing with the Resurrection theme.

RESURGANCE : Rotational Ambigram

September 24, 2009 Leave a comment


This was my first attempt for the ACAC (Formerly, NAC):http://www.ambigram.com/challenge-resurrection

The theme was resurrection, and I got hooked on words starting with ‘re’. I didn’t like the way this turned out, so I didn’t consider vectorising it. However, I’m starting to have second thoughts.

This was my aspiration from the start… to make my name.
However, after I sat down with my trusty PC, now feel like short-circuiting it, as this vectorisation looks nothing like my drawing.
Still, though my motivation is lost ;), I think I can improve it later. Maybe I’ll have a better idea for the ‘S-H’ combination.
