RNIB Seeing Through the Senses

By Emma-Jayne Blair & Natasha Lloyd
Sponsored by RNIB Logo

A stimulating multi-sensory experience, this border embraces bold colour and strong forms in a design intended for a client experiencing sight loss. The purple and yellow colour theme is harmonised with green-grey foliage and punctuated by silvery-white cultivars, which brings a twilight ‘glow’ to assist navigation as daylight fades. The designers hope to inspire a wider audience to experiment with vivid colours, interesting textures, sound, and aromatic plants.
