My first exposer to ambigrams was a 1977 album by a band called Angel. (They opened up for Ted Nugent at the Convention Center Arena in San Antonio back in 1978, but that's another story for another blog...)

Ambigrams. Logos. Words as art.

As both an artist and a graphic designer, John Langdo specializes in the visual presentation of words.

Language, philosophy, and science are interwoven into the design of words, which are manipulated to create surprising illusions. This unique approach culminates in a wide variety of corporate logos, and in ambigrams– words that can be read equally well from more than one point of view.

Most of John's ambigrams read the same when turned "upside down," or rotated 180 degrees.

Check out Ambigrams

That's Right,
