ABOUT







Luke Caruana

Creator of Dingli Sans (2011). He lives in Valletta, Malta. He is currently completing his Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Graphic Design and Interactive Media at the MCAST Institute of Art and Design. In 2011, he also designed a simple alphabet called Kharoshti. He writes: This glyph system was used in the 3rd century BCE until it died out in the 7th century CE in the remote towns of Khotan and Niya. The buddhists mainly used these symbols as a mnemonic for remembering a series of verses relating to the nature of phenomena. In Tantric Buddhism this list was incorporated into ritual practices, and later became set down in mantras. Khraroshti is encoded in the Unicode range U+10A00-U+10A5E. These glyphs were redesigned for our era as part of a school typography assignment. All of the twenty glyphs selected were reduced to the simplest of forms without loosing their identification.
