My name is Fatbardh KRAJA, born in 1983 in Shkodra, Albania.
I graduated in German and Jurisprudence studies in Shkoder, Albania and Hamburg, Germany. During my studies I have been drawn to such fields as: Phonetics, Comparative language, Quantitative linguistics, etc. I also practiced Aikido, Karate and Taekwondo in Albania and Germany.
Many members of my family have made a name for themselves in painting, calligraphy and language studies, so that at a young age their work has persuaded me to study myself different scripts and acquire many of them. At the age of 12 I started to experiment with the creation of some new writing systems.
This journey, together with the linguistics knowledge and the recognition of different cultures, brought me to the identification of some problems in the Japanese writing system. To solve these problems (in 2015) I started creating a scripting system that would be most appropriate to the characteristics of the Japanese language itself. In 2018 I completed the writing system „Manjikana„, which was officially registered on 07.02.2018 at the respective copyright offices in Albania.
Currently I work as a Graphic Designer in an advertising agency in Shkoder.
