Speak through your shirt and overcome any language barrier

One of the troubles of travel is getting lost and not being able to communicate with the locals. But what if I told you that you can talk to anyone, anywhere using just a shirt?

ICONSPEAK is a product line that includes the most common and recognisable icons anywhere in the world. Simply point to an icon, and let the shirt do all the talking (and translating) for you. It saves you the hassle of playing charades with locals secretly making fun of you.

The company’s founders were backpacking and found hand gestures lacking, so they drew a bunch of icons – such as time, weather, money, and transportation – on notepads and used those to communicate more efficiently.

One night in Vietnam, they decided to share their wisdom with the world, and put all their drawings on a shirt. Genius!
