This is the first post of the new website – and I’m going to start it all off with a very exciting proposal!
I will be hosting a tournament of ambigram design. Since the new Star Wars film is being released tomorrow here in the UK, the theme will be space. All you need to do is choose a good space-related word, and submit an ambigram of that word/words. Any kind of ambigram will do – rotational, reflective etc…
So rack your brains for any cosmic words – maybe try your favourite planet in our solar system, or the name of our own galaxy – the possibilities are endless!
In a month’s time, I will choose a winner, plus some runners up – however many I feel deserve it. All the submissions will be posted to a gallery here, and the winner will receive a custom-made handwritten certificate in the post!
Above is a scanned image of the certificate, which I just finished a couple of minutes ago – what a spectacular prize! Just think about when your friends come over and see this sitting above the piano – they won’t believe how privileged they are to be friends with someone so awesome.
The competition will close on the 17th of January 2016. There is no limit to the number of entries per person, and I will accept any type of ambigram entry – from more traditional reflective and rotational designs to figure/ground and tessellation designs.
Simply email your submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please remember to put ‘Ambigram tournament submission’ in the subject box of the email. On the 17th January, I will choose the most amazing ambigram from all of the tournaments, and they will win a very special prize!
Now put on your space suit and blast off – it’s time to get scribbling!
