About Deniart Systems
For Deniart Systems, it all started with a passion and admiration for Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs, a writing system that mystified scholars for hundreds of years with its complexity and beauty.
Denise Koehler, a font designer, was equally mesmerized by this ancient writing system and after significant research, developed and launched Deniart's first product, Egyptian Hieroglyphics Volume One in 1993. From there, Deniart continued to expand on the Hieroglyphics series but that was just the beginning an it adopted the company motto of "Fonts that Span the Ages". True to its motto, the library gradually grew to include fonts based on other ancient writing systems like those of the Aztecs & Mayans as well as other pictorial communication glyphs like modern zodiacs and alchemy symbols.
Deniart's fonts are used by many academic and advertising institutions and have been used to annotate such publications as The Sacred Tradition of Ancient Egypt and The Sacred Magic of Ancient Egypt by Rosemary Clark.
