What are Sonoglyphs? 



Sonoglyphs are a visual language for sound that connects sound to a written language. A comprehensive set of abstract sounds are designed and mapped to a visual language—breaking away from traditional rules
of phonetic English language. When played, each sonoglyph visually responds to the sound it carries.

 

Where do they come from?



Sonoglyphs come from pictographic and ideographic forms inspired by East Asian calligraphic characters. Sonoglyphs are graphical depictions of the objects they denote; however, glyphs can also represent abstract notions. Similarly, the sounds of each glyph represent sonic depictions that enhance the glyph's meaning.

How do they work? 



Occasionally a glyph consists of a single component; more commonly two or more components are combined to form more complex glyphs. Sonoglyphs invite users
to engage their senses in a unique type of creation process—allowing users to interpret sounds and compose their own messages through symbols.
