Ambigrams — WoW

I recently came across this site that showed some Ambigrams……… What is an ambigram?  Good question because until I saw these I did not know…..

An ambigram as defined by Wikipedia, “is a typographical design or artform that may be read as one or more words not only in its form as presented, but also from another viewpoint, direction, or orientation.” To simply put, an ambigram is a typographical creation where the word reads the same when upside down, or flips to create a whole new word. Ambigrams are often very sophisticated and very imaginative typographical style of visual design.

So check these out, it may just be the nerdy designer in me but I think these are really clever and interesting?
