In Singapore - guess, in most parts of the world, too - the term 'ambigrams' is only known by a minority. But when the word is spread about this artform, many people seemed to really like it and come to admire the 'magic' behind it. nagfa believe that ambigram-designing - other than for selling - has the potential to help the community.
.
As a trial-run, nag had proposed setting up an ambigram booth during his attached school's Sports and Games Day on the 5th of April. All proceeds from the sales went to the Needy Students Fund. The sale turned out very positive. Below are the publicity handout and some of the ambigrams designed.

thank you, serpiente..

it was a good experience, the charity got some funds, the student-customers got their personalised ambigrams.. and we got to draw during a school event.

wish you all the best in your project too, serpiente. maybe, we all can do our little parts in our own little areas in the world..

jinoe: any work for a good cause is a commendable deed. it does not even be ambigram designing, a simple 'cook and feed' programme to the less fortunate, for example will bring smiles to those who are in need.. :)

oculus: nagfa is made up of naguib and fadilah - soon to be husband and wife. thank you for visiting our blog

salam(peace)
