The calligraphic element in zdsmith's Abbreviations reminds me also of Elian Script, which evolved from a simple grid-based alphanumeric code into a highly calligraphic script that resembles Chinese pictograms while remaining essentially phonetic.

Earliest version, Ca. 1980

Calligraphic elements, stacking, with word direction from left to right, Ca. 1994
