A continuation of ideas present in Technokratz, with some imagination added for good measure!
This creates new ambigrams and ambiguous words. Here are a few that I found:
AND = ROD
FACE = FREE
FONT = FROM
FOX = HOT
FREE = TREE
INTO = TOMB
LAY = EAT
PHYSICS = EXISTES
SOLD = SAID
TECH = MECH/MEEK/NECK
THE = AXE
TOXIC = MOXIE
VICTORINOX = LAWSUIT (hah, just kidding)
WATER = TAMER
YEATS = TEAMS
Since I like this ambiguity so much, I will keep working to make letters resemble other letters even more! The real trick is finding these synergies while still preserving enough variability in forms that things can still be read flawlessly.
"A futuristic attempt at 'insular' English. The main design rule was 'make it bend where it shouldn't'. This could symbolize some cyber-dystopia-lord-dude's desire to stop at nothing, or something."
This design inserts a dot into every empty grid square. Off-grid empty squares don't count - there must be an utterly empty space of 1 square's size ON the grid. The dotting further imparts a unique identity to every letter.
Shall I continue this one? Let me know. :DThis is a clone of Technokratz

Reverse in the visual context can mean many things. I decided to create letters and mirrored them, attaching them to a spine.The letters looked like filigree jewellery pendants.
I know that the I , T and W don't follow the design rule; I tried to align them on a spine but the result was unsatisfactory.This is a clone
