Morse Code: Invented in 1838 by Samuel Morse

American Artist Samuel Morse developed the code as a way to transmit natural language via electrical pulses generated by a telegraph.

For the first in human history, near instantaneous communication of ideas was now possible over long distances.

Encoding the English Alphabet with "Dots" and "Dashes"

Letters were encoded based on frequency. The letter "E" being the most commonly used was therefore assigned a single dot for efficiency. Letters such as "Q" and "Z" are less used and therefore given a longer code.

Combining History and Design to create something Meaningful

Morse Code revolutionized communication in the 19th century. We, at Metria Design, now use Morse Code to communicate powerful messages for our time.
