The F List… The friends’ list.

Many of us are working on the development of tools made of drawings to help you to improve your communication.

Each of us is working in isolation, developing our own “proprietary” drawing sets. Most of us have between 2 and 3,000 drawings, icons, pictograms in our databases, but none of us yet is crossing the pound to share our experiences. We believe we would be better off to share the knowledge we have built over and collaborate towards a large integration of our products. Let’s share our own kingdoms’ gold nuggets to build a world were people can communicate more easily, anywhere. Share the F List and share with us your knowledge. We will make it available to all.

We all have our own theories about what works and not for our targeted users. Our drawings styles depend a lot on their needs. We could understand better who needs what style to provide our users with better quality products. Let’s connect and move on together for the sake of good.

We are updating below list as soon as we are aware of a new friend. If you want to be notified of new comers in the list, click here to be included in our mailing list.
