Make your encounters with illustrations
even more special!

pib (“picture in bottle”) is an illustration app specializing in original illustrations. As soon as you open the app, the illustrations come flowing to you. As you archive illustrations that you especially like, pib learns your preferences, bringing you encounters with “as-yet-unknown illustrations”.

What’s more, in response to illustrations you received, you can send the creators message bottles decorated with labels expressing your feelings. When you have archived many illustrations, you can create galleries on different themes using the “Collection” function, and you can also share your collections—in which you take great pride—with many other people. This app brings you encounters with illustrations that are a bit special—unlike anything you’ve seen before.
