ZMN code – The final issue of my diploma project was the design of a font for a phonetic alphabet created in 2003 by a French company director. The ZMN code is a new writing system resulting from the crossbreeding of the Latin and Arabic alphabets. The letters are those of the French alphabet but the logic is that of the Arabic language : vowel sounds are represented by accents. R. Zamani first thought of this project as a tool which could help his father, born in Morocco, to learn how to read and write French easily. The ZMN code can be used in a pedagogical or playful dimension. With this system, he bets on learning French thanks to a radical simplification of its spelling.
