What exactly is bikablo?
In 2005, the first visual dictionary with illustrations by Martin Haussmann appeared on the Neuland.com website under the title “bikablo” – an abbreviation of BIlderKArtenBLOck (in English: “picture card pad”). There then followed a whole series of products bearing this name, a training concept and, finally, bikablo became a registered brand.
Is bikablo a drawing technique?
In our training, we impart visualization techniques that have common and systematic basic principles and which we summarize under the term “bikablo drawing technique” or “bikablo visualization technique.” But bikablo is so much more than that! The bikablo brand represents a practice of visual thinking, learning, and collaboration characterized by a systematic, participant-oriented, modern understanding of learning, as well as interpersonal communication, methodological innovation, and a strong sense of community.

What is bikablo’s copyright policy?
The subject of copyright and user rights is very important to us. The respectful handling of intellectual property is very important in our line of work, especially so for the bikablo akademie.
In over fifteen years, bikablo has matured into a coherent visualization system that we give to people in order for them to make a difference in their work. We constantly invest in new image ideas, drawing techniques, and approaches, training our own trainers to provide the best possible methodology and content quality.
We also want to be generous in passing on our knowledge in the future. This is only possible if other consultancy services, publications, and training contents differ significantly from ours. Protecting our intellectual property avoids confusion and allows us to be generous.
We appreciate, recommend, and admire our fellow visualizers, such as The Grove, Brandy Agerbeck, or Xplane. We wish for the same kind of respect for our work. We expect anyone who offers their own consulting services, publications, and training on the subject of visualization to develop their own approaches, just as we have, and in so doing to enrich the community.
