The need for inclusivity may be more instantly recognisable for certain industries, such as those aimed at children, the elderly, or people with disabilities. However, it’s important to remember that all different types of people use your website, products and services, and it’s easy to alienate customers if they struggle to do so.
Being aware of these accessibility issues is the first step, but implementing changes is essential to ensure that your website is inclusive, intuitive and easy to use.
How I work
If you’re looking to increase the accessibility of your existing website, I will help you to determine which areas need improvement by auditing the current design. I will then use this to inform the new design, incorporating new ideas and making amends where required.
For brand-new websites, we will discuss how to make the design as inclusive as possible, and I will advise you on colours, layouts and fonts that will help your visitors to navigate the site.
Once the design is complete, I will pass it to your internal or external web developer for the final build.
My accessibility focus includes:
- Accessibility audit
- Responsive website design
- Easy-to-read font sizes and styles
- Informed colour choices
- Intuitive layouts
- Simple navigation
