    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!

    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 ;)

  6. 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!

  7. 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 :(

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

  13. 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...

  15. 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.

  16. Tried a slightly less out there approach, combining the same letters. Better, but not great.

    All that said, Ben's is beautiful.
