Poncho was designed and painted by professional artist duo Art + Believe.

Design summary

About their design inspiration, Charlotte and Dan from Art + Believe said, “Our inspiration comes from our travels. Ponchos are originally a woven garment worn in South America. The vibrant, colourful, geometric poncho acts as a beacon of light. It is nurturing, warm, protective and makes you feel safe. It emulates the amazing commitment and loyalty of guide dogs.”

Sensory items

We asked our artists to come up with a scent and a touch item that relates to their design to give a multi-sensory perspective to their concept. Some of these items will be incorporated into our sighted guide and sensory tours. Art + Believe's sensory items are:

  • Touch item: Hand-woven South American blankets.
  • Scent item: Coffee beans.
