We Will Be Victorious

Posted by – December 8, 2009

Believe it or not, I drew this for a computer science class. The assignment was to do something right-brained that dealt with the subjects of the course. Well, we watched Robert X. Cringely’s Triumph of the Nerds videos during the semester, and I’m an ambigram nerd. These two facts conspired to bring you the image below:

It says 'Triumph of the Nerds', in case you couldn't tell

In case you couldn’t tell, this says “Triumph of the Nerds”. It’s rotationally symmetric; that is, if you rotate it 180 degrees it will still say the same thing.

I’m not wholly satisfied with the design. For one thing, there is no spacing between “the” and “nerds”; I didn’t have enough time to experiment with ways to separate them without compromising the “m” in “triumph”. That notwithstanding, I feel it’s good enough to share, and certainly good enough to make the grade.
