For the cover design we translated an exceptionally visual description of the painting process, as written by Shen Chen, into braille. The braille may appear to be superficial decoration, but after the reader opens up to the content of the catalogue the meaning of the braille becomes clear. The braille traces the process of painting; even if one could never actually see the artwork, it is possible to experience what is referred to as ‘Slow Art’.
Since 2009 Fox Creek has featured Braille on their back wine labels, which they created with the support of the Royal Society for the Blind. Fox Creek are the only winery in Australia who have Braille on their labels. They believe that all businesses should strive to help bring greater independence to the lives of the visually impaired. #McLarenVale #SouthAustralia #wine #braille
iPad Cover for Braille by Jayson D'Alessandro- Cover for the iPad that transforms it’s flat surface into Braille, reflecting the contents of the page you are surfing. Essentially the idea is to make the iPad accessible to the sight impaired... Nevertheless, when not in the Braille mode, the jacket acts as a protective gear for the iPad. Lovely! The Omnifer is a 2011 IDEA Award entry.
