Language barriers can make far away travels quite a troublesome endeavor. Especially when you don’t speak any of the 5 major languages or if there was free alcohol on the 20 hour plane ride… But fear not, we totally got your back and found this genius solution called Iconspeak.
From now on, you don’t have to carry around any books or gadgets when travelling abroad, all you need to do is wear this cool shirt:
George, Steven and Florian, the creative masterminds behind Iconspeak, came up with a solution to let you express yourself in any country you travel: a shirt printed with essential icons that’ll help you overcome the language barriers of this world.
The brilliant trio came up with the idea while backpacking through Vietnam. Since none of them spoke the language, they quickly discovered that they were able to communicate with the locals through the use symbols, and thus the idea for Iconspeak was born.
So how does it work? Well, like this:
