Kromofons are a color alphabet in which each of the 26 letters of English is represented by a unique color. The Kromofons alphabet is a set of graphemes that are not written, but which consist rather solely of rectangles or other visible units of color.

Kromofons was invented and patented [United States Patent 20070003912.] by Lee Freedman.
