This ambigram was commissioned by Donna for her sons - Gage and Seth.
While Donna wanted a feminine ambigram, i have been unable to create the design in calligraphic/styled font - the inversion just doesn't help.
So i reverted back to simple designs. 8 bit helped me - the clear lines makes the ambigram very readable and very simple. If Seth and Gage like Mario, they'll surely love this graphic design.
I'm currently trying to make a design with modern font for this ambigram.
i luv u/ shrey

This symbiotogram was commissioned by Danielle for herself and her hubby Jakeil :)
They have used it on the 'Save the Date' Wedding Invitation - looks wonderful isn't it? :)

This ambigram was commissioned by Michelangelo for his true love Marzena. It was done in an ever popular stylized font. The a/e and r/z combinations were particularly hard to pull off. The design looks quite stylish without compromising on readability.

Ambigram reviewed by John Langdon
As mentioned earlier, i'd submitted my entry for NAC (Nagfa's Ambigram Challenge). Top 10 entries in this challenge were reviewed by John Langdon. And my entry was one of them.
You can see the other entries in top 10 and their reviews by John Langdon here.

Now when i look back i see how much i've evolved as an artist in this one year. You can see the gradual increment in the quality of the designs in the past year. I look forward to more years of this challenging hobby. Thanks to everyone who commissioned their artworks from me, those who commented on my site and not the least my close friend Vinay who gave his feedback on almost all of my designs...

This ambigram was created as an entry for the Nagfa's Ambigram Challenge for Feb 2007. This challenge was special, since the word, Singularity, was given by the most notable ambigrammer of our times - Sir John Langdon.
Aesthetic. Sexy. Graphic. Racy. Bold. Beautiful. Magic. A Work of Art!

Bethany & Finn
This ambigram was commissioned by Mark Richardson who wanted to get a blackletter ambigram tattoo on his childrens' names - Bethany and Finn. He also wanted to incorporate the '13' in the same ambigram, since it was important to him.

This ambigram was commissioned by Caroline, who wanted to get an ornamental (but not too flowy) tattoo named "Kenny" for herself. I've used the ever popular stylized font to bring out beauty. I love the K/Y inversion, which has been made easier by the choice of this font.

This ambigram was commissioned by David from Italy and reads "Dfstars" (i wonder what significance this word has!). He wanted an ornamental blackletter font for his tattoo. The only difficult inversion was evidently D/S. The design looks cool. more stylish than anything and readable too.

This ambigram was commissioned by Tony Chavez whose nickname is Stoney. He wanted to get an ambigram tattoo. I have made following two designs for him. The first one incorporates the hindlewood blackletter font and looks very stylish though quite unreadable at first sight.
The second one uses a more calligraphic with flowing lines. highly readable font. He's very happy with the second design and will be using it for his purpose.
The main effort in this ambigram was taken by S/Y inversion. While it decreases the readability in the first design, i've made it more visually appealing in the second design.

This ambigram was commissioned by Greg whose nickname is Aristottle. He wanted to use it for a tattoo and hence wanted a blackletter font. I chose the Wilhelm Klingspor Gotisch font for him...this is a really beautiful blackletter font. This is my first attempt with this font and as you can see it looks really good and becomes another good contender for a tattoo font. Greg likes the design very much and i guess so shall you.
