I create my ambigrams by first sketching possible solutions. Then I look for a typeface that has most letters to fit one of those solutions and hopefully characterises the person or the word.
I use Illustrator to create them in black first, so that I can see how well the word works. I try not to deviate too far from the original letter, and make changes/additions using parts of other characters in the same typeface. I stay away from blackletter and gothic fonts, that are popular with other ambigram artists. My priority is to have something that is easy to read.

Get the quality
You can use any of these ambigrams for free, but they are only web size and if you enlarge them they will look awful. Why not buy a high quality version, available as a high resolution JPEG (a4 300dpi) or the original editable Illustrator EPS
