0801, Feelipa Color Code, 2009

Feelipa is a graphic system that translates colors into tactile shapes. Red is a square, yellow is a triangle, and blue is a circle. Additional colors are created by combining shapes. Horizontal lines express shades of gray. For someone who can see some color, the shapes and colors reinforce each other. This simple system could enable people to add tactile stickers to various products, from clothing to food packages and pill bottles. The system is designed by Filipa Nogueira Pires.
