Every time someone special gives you a jewelry, it is always a testament of their love and appreciation. And in every testament that is made, there is a story to celebrate—from weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, to other huge milestones in life. With an optimistic outlook in life, and believing that each person has a story worth telling, Kat Nantes started designing ambigram jewelry where her pieces can impeccably reflect the magnificent story of every person.
Specializing in typography, strokes, and colors, Kat is able to merge two or more words to create a piece that is uniquely yours. According to her, “an ambigram is a kind of typographical art wherein two or more words are combined to create one image or design that tells a story. In an ambigram, the integrity of the word or image is retained even when you view it from different orientations and directions.”
Whenever Kat designs an ambigram, she makes it a point to collaborate with her clients making them a co-creator of the ingenious jewelry piece. “We call our clients co-creators, because we are symbolizing their own stories through every piece. I based my design on my co-creator’s preferences and experiences. They are the ones who choose which names, words, and images to combine in one piece.”
Here are five ways on how you can be a co-creator of your ambigram pendant:
A glyph ambigram is a combination of two or more letters to form the typography, which is perfect for co-creators who prefer to use their initials.
Based from how it is called, it is a combination of two names or words wherein the second word is revealed when you flip or rotate the pendant.
An oscillation ambigram is achieve when two or more different words can be read in the same direction with a perceptual shift.
Type Morph Ambigram
A type morph ambigram happens when names or words are used to form a specific shape. In this pendant the image of a dragonfly is formed by the name Oliver and initials P, K, and D.
It is a combination of two names or words where the second name is revealed through eh pendant’s reflection on a mirror, water, or its shadow. This may also be worn in two ways depending on your choice of which name to wear for the day.
