The bikablo technique: Learn to visualise without previous drawing skills


During more than 10 years of practical experience we have developed a universally applicable visual ­language that anyone can learn: The bikablo technique. Artistic talent is definitely not a prerequisite! There is a range of products based on the bikablo brand which we develop in cooperation with our partner Neuland.

The basic idea behind the bikablo technique: Visualisation (by contrast to the fine arts) is an everyday language consisting of vocabulary and grammar, which can be learnt like any other language. You learn how to express yourself visually via writing, symbols, figures, and graphics – and to use this visual technique in your everyday work.
