“An ambigram, also sometimes known as an inversion, is a graphical figure that spells out a word not only in its form as presented, but also in another direction or orientation. The text can also consist of a few words, and the the text spelled out in the other direction or orientation is often the same, but can also be a different text.”
Well, what i can describe here is Ambigram is a “calligraphic design that manages to squeeze two different readings into the selfsame set of curves.” When you turn it upside or downside, it still spell the same word. I really admire brother Rizuan work. so cool. You can easily do this when u master the to use the Adobe Illustrator sofware.
There’s several type of Ambigram such as:
- Perceptual shift
*Ambigram, Mohd Faiz, Rotational. Incik Sejuk beku punye.
*Ambigram untuk incek Awangpurba, Rotational.
*Ambigram for Cik Irarox, Rotational.
*Ambigram Azrul, rotational.
Other type of brother Rizuan ambigram artwork:
*Ambigram Love-Hate, Mirror.
*Ambigram Sorrow, Rotational.
*Ambigram Live and Love. Oscillations. You can see “love&live” writting there.
And there’s the another type of this kinda of art. It is combination of Arabic Khat. For example from brother Uncle purba.
