In late summer 2021, Thinkable CEO Jaap Breider was visited by journalist Eskandar Abadi and film maker Shahab Kermani. They produced a video for Deutsche Welle TV (Persian department). Jaap was accompanied and interviewed during one day in his house and company headquarters in Huissen (NL).
Besides receiving his guest, talking about himself and Thinkable, Jaap explains the basics of tactile graphics to the interviewer. Being a blind man himself, he is obviously experiencing something completely new: Jaap draws or plots graphics for him while he also explains the “codes” behind certain ways of drawing from the seeing world.
It is these kinds of moments that keep Jaap inspired since decades. With Thinkable, he constantly works on innovations to give ever more VIPs access to tactile graphic information.
