The character Glyph is inspired by ‘Hieroglyphs’ which is a system of writing with pictorial symbols used to represent meaning or sound or a combination of the two. In other words, Hieroglyphs make the paper come to life. Allen Shaw wanted to have a character “Griff” which means ‘new’, but in this context, “Glyph” tuned out to be better choice. This is how Allen created Glyph who now lets the papyrus speak through Egyptian art-inspired detailed depictions, simple lines and shapes that represent order and balance.

Follow Glyph as he walks through their life with effortless humor that will make your mood lighter and day brighter.
