Hey Ambigram

hey ambigram

An ambigram is a word that looks exactly the same upside down as it does rightside up. Specifically, if you rotate the image 180 degrees, it will look identical. In the image above, I've done some extra work for you... so now you don't have to flip your head upside down in order to see the ambigram.

If you're read or seen the Davinci Code, you'll see some references to ambigrams in the book and movie. I like this example because it is fairly simple, and you can instantly recognize what it is. Sometimes with ambigrams you look at the word and it is really difficult to read what it says in the first place, and the reason for that is most likely that they are using a word (or group of words) that just don't really lend themselves to being a cool ambigram picture.


Best of the Best (our newest original optical illusions)
Diamonds appear to be the same shade. But they're not!

Same Shade Diamonds

Wow! It will look like the diamonds on the top are much darker than the diamonds on the bottom.

Perfect and printable! This is a very strong optical illusion, and is even noticeable in the small image to the left. Doesn't it look like the top row is considerably darker than each successive row?

moving red spiral

Moving Red Spiral
Sometimes, while I'm just playing around in Photoshop, something appears, as if by magic. This illusion was one of those that just jumps off the page.

It's a large red spiral on a purple background that appears to jump and move. Works better for some people than others, but if you like the moving illusions, you'll love it! Although this small image might move a bit as you read these words, the larger versions are even better!

Moving Backgrounds

It moves! You must zoom in to get the full illusion. You'll see the rings rotate, even though they are not moving at all.

We've created several sizes so you can use as your desktop background.
