Manifest Glyphs

Every once in a while a project surprises you and maybe takes a different turn than you were expecting. This was the case with the glyphs we created for Manifest. Together with Creative Director Jim Jacoby, now with the ADMCi, we created a 47 character glyph language. The glyphs were originally meant to be used internally as a sort of secret code, however, after we put them on our site they took on a life of their own—mainly in the tattoo world. Tattoos of the glyphs started popping up everywhere and now we get about an email or so a week asking where the glyphs came from (us) and what their historical background is (none). They even ended up on a buzzfeed article from a couple years ago talking about the “19 Tattoos That Literally Everyone Got In 2014.” It’s been fun to see people connect with them and even inspire new projects and art - take a look…
