I have several science fiction projects that depict the use of Nahuatl in the future or alternate presents, so I thought it would be cool to devise a fictional alphabet to represent that Indigenous Mexican language.

I’m going to explain my process below. At the very bottom, you’ll find a link to a Neo Nahuatl Font you can download and use for free.

A quick sample of the font.
