SD Ambigram

Recommended Posts

I've been trying out different ways to make the initials SD for San Diego as a logo concept without being too similar to the Padres cap logos.

 

Here's a first draft for the SD letters as an ambigram:

Love the idea of an ambigram as a cap logo, but this isn't really working for me. It reads more like an 8 than anything; the spaces above and below the crossbar (is that the right term?) are just enough to read as an S if you look at it close enough, but it really doesn't read as a D at all. 

 

That said, I can't really suggest anything off the top of my head to improve. It would take some trial-and-error, playing with angles, thicknesses and serifs.

They are, but I'm trying to find a different way to intertwine the SD initials without being too much like the Padres.

 

If that doesn't work, I might instead repurpose one of the unused Patriot logos from the 70's with a different hat on top.
