Traveler’s T-Shirt With 40 Icons Will Let You Communicate Easily Wherever You Travel

Published 8 years ago

If you’ve done some traveling then you’ll know that language is often the biggest barrier. But as you can see from these pictures, the solution is actually right in front of us! Literally.

IconSpeak is a new t-shirt design that features 40 universally recognized icons that let you express yourself anywhere you travel. The icons include the most common travel needs such as hotels, transport, food, doctor, wifi and toilets. You’ll only need to learn “hello” and “thank you”, because the rest you can just point out on your chest.

Creators of the t-shirt George, Steven, and Florian explained how they came up with the idea during their Vietnam trip: “Many times we were confronted with a language barrier that was only to be overcome by drawing signs, symbols or icons on a piece of paper, map, or into the dirt,” the guys explain. “We thought it would be great to have an essential set of icons with you, permanently, so that you could just point on whatever you need – and people would understand. Soon the notepad was pulled out again and we started listing more or less essential icons that would have been of great help during not just ours, but basically anyone’s trip.
