Ukaliq    Ukaliq

The Ukaliq alphabet was created by Henrik Theiling, initially for a new constructed language, but then it became a universal alphabet also meant to be usable for any human language. The idea is to retrofit nice symbols to the shapes representable on a 7-segment display. It is an exercise in restriction to simple, pre-defined patterns, and an exploration of the potential of a script's expressiveness and elegancy within these restrictions.
