I love the concept and design of this Red Green Ambigram of John Langdon. It does not give too much of itself, it has an element of mystery that will make the spectators very curious. The viewer, will have to really explore on the details in order to understand the composition of this ambigram. This creative piece is quite absorbing. High five to this fantastic ambigram!
About the Red Green Ambigram
The Red Green Ambigram is one of the most artsy and tricky lettering that John Langdon has created. According to him, this was one of his personal works in 2009. The deep black background of this ambigram compliments the colors green and red of this ambigram which makes it look extra striking.
About the Artist
John Langdon is both a prolific artist and graphic designer. He is also a writer and typography professor at Drexel University. Since 1995 he has taken his visual-verbal meditations and manipulations to canvas. He has been a renowned creator of ambigrams. In fact, you can find one of his notable works in Dan Brown’s best-selling novel, Angels & Demons. He has been a freelance logo designer, type specialist, and lettering artist. He also worked in the photo-lettering department of a type house. He got an excellent graphic design education from the pages of art director’s annuals and design publications. He has a brilliant mind to bring together his interests in language, symmetry, illusion, philosophy, and physics. Most of his ambigrams read the same when turned upside down or rotated 180 degrees. There is no doubt that John’s specialty is making abstract concepts through words, letters, and symbols. As an artist, he believes that language, philosophy and science are intertwined into the design of words which are manipulated to generate startling illusions.
