Olphas are graphical characters with context. As opposed to black and white text, Olphas are images of letters and symbols painted with background themes chosen by the user.

Current writing systems are thousands of years old, they have evolved very little throughout the ages, mainly because of technical limitations to process and port, keeping symbols as simple as possible. Nowadays, with the technological advancements, information is digital that travels at the speed of light.

A very fundamental question raises itself. Is it time for change and can we do better? Our humble answer is Olphas.

Any object or idea can be turned into an Olphas simply by painting the first letter of the object or idea in hand with its representative image. Olphas are then grouped into themes, since there is an infinite number of graphical representation for any character.

Currently we have 24 Themes:
