Project Hangeul, the first series

The mimetic words of Hangeul

About this Project

Hangeul is the Korean alphabet. Instead of being written sequentially, like English, Hangeul is grouped into
blocks that represent individual syllables. In this way, it can be used to write most sounds.
The Mimetic Words of Hangeul is an art project that attempts to visually represent onomatopoeic and
mimetic words according to their meaning.
The project was made using HTML5, especially Canvas, and it works beautifully on both desktop and tablet.

About Hangeul

In 1994, “Discover” magazine described Hangeul as "the most scientific system of writing" in the world with
the "world’s best alphabet." Even though Hangeul is a system of phonetic symbols, the symbols are
categorized by vowels and consonants and even by the "position in which the lips, mouth, or tongue is held
to pronounce that" symbol.
