The project was a signage system designed specifically for the visually impaired at the Poona School for Blind Girls in India. It was a collaborative effort where, I partnered with the teachers, students, and administration to create a way-finding system that worked at many levels; primarily for the visually impaired but also for the sighted teachers and visitors. This community involvement created a sense of ownership and shared joy of creation. Once installed, the highly tactile (for the blind) and brightly colored (for the partially blind) way-finding system created an empowered and accessible environment that was kinder and gentler.
