pietPiet Herzeel, founder of SIGNUS. An artist who spreads the word.

« Signus is the fruit of 20 years of personal experience and research in three different areas: arts, distance teaching and NICT. First of all, however, Signus is a human adventure.
It appeared to me essential to never let the new technologies used on Signus hide the real stake of such a platform. After puting together all the teaching skills acquired in actual workshops and analysing the real motivations of Internet users eager to learn, Signus is generously using a vast palette of new technologies.
Founded on a very audacious concept, Signus always went ahead of the users daily requests. This proactive stage allowed them to make the most of the many developments and adjustments of the tool.
A whole community of artists make it their daily social, cultural and artistic meeting. Signus is now spontaneously animated by people of all ages, places and social backgrounds. Used to be in constant motion and thanks to the success that we know today, Signus will continue to enrich continuously in order to remain the reference in its own field and allow its members to give birth to talents until now hidden. »
