Ambigrams Info

An ambigram, also 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.

Ambigrams usually fall into one of several categories:
A design that presents several instances of words when rotated through a fixed angle. This is usually 180 degrees, but rotational ambigrams of other angles exist, for example 90 or 45 degrees. The word spelled out from the alternative direction(s) is often the same, but may be a different word to the initially presented form. (Most of My Ambigrams are like this.)

A design that can be read when reflected or viewed through a mirror, usually as the same word or phrase both ways, but not always. Figure-ground A design in which the spaces between the letters of one word form another word.

A design where a word (or sometimes words) are interlinked forming a repeating chain. Letters are usually overlapped meaning that a word will start partway through another word. Sometimes chain ambigrams are presented in the form of a circle. Space-filling
Similar to chain ambigrams, but tile to fill the 2-dimensional plane.

A design where an object is presented that will appear to read several letters or words when viewed from different angles. Such designs can be generated using constructive solid geometry.

Perceptual shift
A design with no symmetry but can be read as two different words depending on how the curves of the letters are interpreted.

Check out this nice feature... Its a nice strip with all the ambigrams on the site on it (well... almost all because some of them dont look good on this)

If you would like to add any of the below to your site .. go ahead and copy the code on to your site

(click on it to activate the strip and use it)

You just need to copy the code into the area where you would like the strip to appear...

If you need any help feel free to contact me here
