Our Approach

We bring an understanding of language learning to help improve communication through iconic languages.

You can call this "Our philosophy" or "Our vision." We want to:

Improve communication through iconic languages

We're developing a complete iconic language and the technical tools and apps to make it an effective communication tool. We know language learning; all of us speak multiple languages. And we hope to aid in improving your information exchanges.

Our Story

The beginning of our story is rooted in language learning and the frustrating experience of not being able to communicate even when knowing several languages. We saw the opportunity for the birth and use of an advanced iconic language - one that allows a high-level communication,
with a sound linguistic background study, and that also exploits the clarity of modern computer icons. Communicating with Icons can be precise, engaging and fun!
