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.
