The Hinglish Project
The Hinglish project is an effort to make Hindi characters a bit more accessible to english speakers.
Hindi is written in the Devanagri script, which has many more characters than the English alphabet. This font, then, cannot teach you how to read words as they are spelt in Hindi, but its aim is to demystify individual letters in its script and make India more approachable. Despite the superficial distinctiveness of English and Hindi, the two borrow from the same phonetic pool – they both belong to the Indo-European group of languages. This font design playfully highlights these commonalities.
