Design principals Joby Blackman (Landscape Designer) and Carolyn Blackman (Horticulturalist) formed Vivid Design in 1996. The combined influence ensures gardens have equal emphasis on hard landscape design and planting design. Vivid Design has been awarded multiple medals for design both in Australia and Internationally.
"Our approach to landscape design is always contextual - the people, the architecture and surrounding environment being the major influential factors in the finished design. Our philosophy is that the gardens we design should be unique and devoid of authorship. The subtle weaving in of history, ‘stories’ or other more personal elements is also a particular design influence."
