Icon Speak is a useful T-Shirt printed with 40 travel icons which are perfect for the occasions where you do not speak the native language. The shirt was thought upon and brought into existence by three Swiss “pen-pushers” after an adventure with a broken-down motorcycle somewhere in Vietnam.
This is what they have to say, “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,” explain George, Steven, and Florian. “We thought it would be great to have an essential set of icons with you, permanently, so that you could just point to 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 anyone’s trip.”
