New ambigrams, Mert-Demir and one more…

I recently received an email with the following request:

I am an engineer living in Turkey and I am going to have my second son hopefully in April and I would love to have their names as a tattoo. However having such a special work that will remain with me for my whole life should be art. Therefore I was thinking if you could perform a symbiotogram of my sons names for me (Demir and Mert).

I love creating ambigrams but haven’t done so in a while… but a challenge is a challenge and over the break I took a stab at the task. As I said in my reply back:

Given my schedule and work it is difficult for me to devote any significant time to ambigrams … I did play around a bit and I think creating a ambigram that reads Demir one way and Mert the other is going to be difficult. What I have is a quick sketch of an individual ambigram for each of the words… As you will see this is no way finalized (being just a sketch). If you want to take to a graphic designer who can retrace it on the computer and clean it up – please feel free to do so. I just don’t have the the time to do that.

So here are the two ambigrams I created. Technically this is not a symbiotogram (that would be if the design read Mert one way and Demir the other). In this solution Mert transforms to Mert and Demir to Demir.  Enjoy


Mert-Demir

And as long as we are on the topic of ambigrams here is another one that I had created back in summer for the Great12 conference organized by the Year 2 cohort of our MAET program.
