Here's a challenge: Rebound with your best ambigram of the word 'design'.
This is my first ever ambigram attempt (did it this morning). Have a go!

This is going to talke a LOT of thinking!
i actually really dont see design written in there! i guess it would also be better to read the word and understand it and not find out what is written by your comment below! anyway that requires a lot of work and imagination, you have done a good job! thumbs up!
p.s in this one is not written "design", but is my name, http://dribbble.com/shots/20763--Vasjen-Ambigram i still could not play very well with the letters but i gave it a try, it is a old experiment!
This should be a Playoff.
@Katro Yeah it's hard to make them instantly readable, and I'm far from practiced at them!
@KeriHenare It'll only become a playoff if it gets multiple rebounds ;)

This is more tribal than I usually go with my designs but it was fun! Cranked out over a single episode of Glee so yes, it was a little rushed ;) I may do another one later when I have a bit more time. Kudos to Coby Chapple for coming up with such a badass challenge!

ahh...much better. Less disciplined than the previous design, but I like the circusy feel. The "d/n" could be a bit rounder, maybe?
So it turns out I can't read and the rules actually state that you have to rebound a 'design' ambigram. Damn. That S/I combo is a tough one.
@bensomething Your ambigram was cool none-the-less, or at least I thought so! Are you gonna give 'design' a go?
The s/i is a bastard. I basically just made mine an 's' with a dot :(
@Coby: Just messing around with a version now. Damn you for choosing this word! Haha.

It says "design," okay?! Are you happy now?! ::Runs away, slams door, cries in the corner::

My attempt at an ambigram.
Mine always seem to look better on paper. :-/

Actually followed the rules this time. The S/I combo is a bit of a cop-out, but I value my sanity too much.
Ben, You just blew my attempt away...

I've seen a lot of blackletter be used for these in the past, so I figured I'd give it a try. I got too ambitious with wanting each letter to also be partially composed of the one next to it. Also, backwards "e" doesn't read well.
But it was fun.
Tried a slightly less out there approach, combining the same letters. Better, but not great.
All that said, Ben's is beautiful.
