No, I once looked at Shavian as a possible way to show the phonemics of
English when discussing how the Roman Alphabet doesn't really show
English well. The Shavian group while very small (or so it appears to
me) there were several people who took documents like this, and the
Coke logo, and different familiar advertisements and other such things
and redid them in Shavian with the same look.
What this did was create a vision of what a world written in Shavian
would look like. I think the "re-creation" of familiar images and
documents and logos in our sign languages using SignWriting is another
way to create a vision for what a world with written sign languages
could look like.
