As a sometimes-graphic-designer in the middle of an internship on contract law, I can't help but be somewhat disturbed by his not selecting rich black for the boy king and his failure to properly capitalize his formal definitions.

Also, it's spelled "hieroglyph."

Ariel is never an acceptable substitution for anything.

Why is his sister relevant here?

Mayim Bialik is always relevant.

"I know we're due to cap off the pyramid in a couple of days, but can you make the cartouche bigger?...More time? Sorry, we'd love to, but the priests have already started killing and embalming the handservants. We've really got a hard deadline here...Oh, and can you put in some more guys walking sideways? You've left a lot of empty space on the edge of the walls."

Tut's father also had stipulations.
I will make the City of the Horizon of the Aten for the Aten, my Father, in this place. I will not make the city south of it, north of it, west of it or east of it. I will not pass beyond the southern boundary stone southward, neither will I pass beyond the northern boundary stone northward to make for him a City of the Horizon there; neither will I make for him a city on the western side. Nay, but I will make the City of the Horizon for the Aten, my Father, upon the east side, the place for which he did enclose for his own self with cliffs, and made a plain in the midst of it that I might sacrifice to him thereon: this is it.

Neither shall the Queen say unto me, `Behold there is a goodly place for the City of the Horizon in another place', and I harken unto her. Neither shall any noble nor any man in the whole land say unto me, `Behold there is a goodly place for the City of the Horizon in another place', and I harken unto them. Whether it be downstream or southward or westward or eastward, I will not say, `I will abandon this City of the Horizon.'
Neither will I make the logo bigger.
