  1. hey nikita

    do we have to submit 2 designs or just any one ambigram

  2. Prajyot,
    I do believe your question has been answered in #5 bullet point of the article. :)

  3. So assume that means we don’t have to do both of them :P

    Does the sponsor realise Jesus is a 5 letter word and God is 3! This is a challenge.

  4. Only 2 designs, 1 for God/Jesus and 1 for Holy Spirit ?
    Or two entries for each?

  5. @Danny: sadly it is 2 per person. You can either choose create two versions of ‘holy spirit’ or ‘god/jesus’.

    ‘god/jesus’ is a nice challenge but as there is only one prize ‘holy spirit’ has a better chance.

    Nice challenge it is.. :)

  6. is there any 2nd place winner? :D

  7. Can we fuse the two in a single boundary of a page??

  8. Nice challange! God/Jesus is a very difficult design to make!

  9. There will be a winner for “HolySpirit” and one for “God/Jesus”, or a winner for all?

  10. Nikita,
    can I submit my design(s) before May 20th?

  11. They can be fused… I actually would like them all together.
    Holy spirt viewed both ways with god viewed one way. Jesus viewed the other

    Yes. I know the god / Jesus is hard…

  12. I notice the contest doesn’t mention anything about reflective ambigrams. Will entries that are a reflection be immediately disqualified?

  13. @Jennifer: Reflection ambigrams need a medium (mirror) to view the mirror version of it. So we may not see any sponsored challenge asking for mirror or reflection ambigram unless there is a proper plan to present it (Say, put it on a room with glassy floor where the reflection would be visible).

    You have 2 submissions allowed. So you can submit one reflective ambigram :) I would like to see the solution when posted.

  14. @Sharath: Or, perhaps, some lovely stained glass that does tend to ornament many windows in churches? Can be read from both the inside and out!

  15. @Jennifer: That would be very nice to see.

  16. Is keeping a “high resolution vector file” mandatory??? I am unable to create it..

  17. Will all the entries be posted before the winners are announced?

  18. when will the results announceed?

  19. Can’t wait to see the results!!!
    @Jennifer – I love the idea of a mirror design that is displayed in some unique way…maybe for a sponsor. This would be so amazingly cool!!

  20. All the entries will be posted within the next day or two. The winner will be posted after the sponsor has a chance to review the submissions, which can take from 1-2 weeks at most. Then, on to more ambigram goodness!

  21. more than anything i’d like to see the solutions other artists came up with, with regards to the god/jesus symb

  22. @Dan, I came up with one, but I wasn’t happy with it, so it never made it out of the sketch phase. Maybe once the entries are all posted, I’ll put up a picture of what I came up with.

  23. @jennifer, please do! and we’re you able to do a reflective design? i know it’s not part of the challenge requirement, but you posted a question early on about it… maybe you did try to come up with a reflective design anyway, and if you did, you might want to put up a pic of it….. just curious…

  24. @Dan, I’ll get a picture tomorrow if I can. I did manage a reflection, hopefully we’ll see it up here when the entries are posted :) .

  25. I can’t wait anymore!

  26. I am also excited to see who else took on the God/Jesus symbiotogram. That was a tough one for sure!!

  27. Here’s my (very rough) sketch. I think it’s got promise, but I didn’t think it was really challenge-worthy.
