About This Class
Flip your design & typographic world upside-down and gain a whole new perspective on typography and lettering. NYC-based graphic designer, author of Ambigrams Revealed, and lettering artist Nikita Prokhorov will teach you how to draw your own ambigram — a word that reveals another word when viewed from a different perspective.
This one-hour class walks you through real-life examples of ambigrams, the many typographic styles you can use, how to find inspiration for your design, and of course, the step-by-step process of sketching and refining your finished ambigram.
You don’t have to be M.C. Escher to take this class — designers, illustrators, type enthusiasts and artists of all levels are welcome! A hybrid of traditional typography, lettering, and illusion — along with some artistic magic — the ambigram is guaranteed to draw you in.

Drawing is such a stress relief!
Great samples and breakdown. It is not easy to come up a word that will work, however this definitely gets you in the right direction. Now I try with every word I can.
