Nikita Prokhorov

For the regular contributors of, Nikita Prokhorov needs no introduction.  His frequent posts, commentary and quirky sense of humor have been a part of for years.

One of my favorite attributes of Nikita is how it always seemed that whatever the latest ambigram challenge was, it always seemed to be the most challenging one ever.  Although sometimes his puns were groaners, they did always bring a smile to my face.

That being said, I am sad to report to the community that Nikita will no longer be writing for, as he has decided to work independently to pursue his publishing and design career.  Through Nikita’s ambigram articles, ACAC ambigram challenges, Quick Draws, and connections with the ambigram artists, he was able to bring together and get to know the ambigram community, which in return brought about a lot fun interactions on

Nikita said:
“This was a hard decision for me to make, but in the end, I felt that it would be best that I discontinued my association with in order to pursue the full range of my artistic talents.  I have made some really great friends through”

Please join me in wishing Nikita the best of luck in his future.

  1. I hope that your book turns out to be everything you could have dreamed, Nikita. Best of luck.

  2. I am sure the news has no relation with April 1st. It is a shocking news to ambigram community but have to accept it.
    Nikita (I need to be careful with spelling these days) is an awesome guy and his articles during ACAC made the challenges so rich. I am not sure how the activities on will continue without the support of Nikita. I wish him all the best with his career and hope something better is on the corner for the ambigram community.

  3. Rock on, Nikita! The world awaits!
