Nicolas Paz received his bachelor’s degree in anthropology from University of California, Santa Cruz in 2019. During his undergraduate studies he took a linguistics course on invented languages where he first learned about conlanging and sparked his journey in creating this script. With a background in archaeology he naturally gravitated towards ancient writing systems which influenced this script. He currently enjoys traveling throughout Latin America and during his travels he seeks out dictionaries of indigenous languages on the places he is traveling through.
The Human script is an alphabetic system of phonetic notation that uses the model of the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA). The Human script is aesthetically based on the four independent writing systems: Cuneiform, Egyptian hieroglyphs, Maya script, and Oracle bone script. There are also influences coming from the child systems. The goal for Human script is to have an international writing system that pays homage to the four independent writing systems and its child systems, whether it is influenced aesthetically or it is directly transcribed.
