Encore: Border Order/Border Color/Border Sense
August 3, 2017
Hosted by Gwendolyn D. Galsworth, Ph.D.
Our exploration—and exultation—of the power of borders continues. Completing the agenda from last week’s show, your host and visual expert, Gwendolyn Galsworth, provides three stunning examples of the double-border function—highly useful applications you can bring to your own company and your own area. She then moves on to color-coded borders and the secret of their success (as well as the most common mistakes). As time permits, Galsworth will detail two other border-strengthening processes. First, her tips for laying down borders that last a year but can be removed overnight. Then she shares her 11-Step Procedure for developing a color-coded system for borders that, among other things, ties each color to the percentage of floor space that color category actually occupies. This is a call-in show so don’t hesitate to tell us about your own border/color-code challenges. Time is not an issue. Anything we don’t finish this week, we can complete during next week’s show.
