If you’re wondering what that strange writing means in our banner

I felt like spiffing up our site banner a little. Make it unique and a little more Utahish. So I downloaded Mormon Country’s very own Deseret Alphabet and wrote ‘Salt Lake Emergent Cohort’ in Deseret. It’s a phonetic alphabet, so I had to do a little homework to get the characters right, but I don’t think there are any hard and fast rules for the correct spelling of many words, so this is my best impression of things.

The font I used is designed after the one used in the Deseret First Book, published back in 1868. If you’d like to play around with the font for yourself, here’s the ReaderBee font for download.
