Dispelling the myth that Accessible Design has to be ‘boring’ with Toucan Diversity.
Following a rebrand, Toucan Diversity now needed a new website that better reflect their team, values and culture. Of course, accessibility was paramount for this project and it was our job to marry beautiful and inclusive design.
How we did it
Toucan Diversity | Hosting & Support | Website Design & Development
In short, Toucan Diversity offer ‘Disability Training, Delivered by Disabled People’. The organisation has gone from strength to strength over the years, with endorsement from a range of household brand names and a lengthy testimonial list from happy Clients! Now, Toucan Diversity came to us having rebranded and now wanted to reposition themselves to better portray their offering and laser focus their messaging on their website.
With an entirely new brand book in place at Toucan Diversity (produced by a brilliant external agency), Hewitt Matthews needed to come up with a way to produce a new website that not only engaged a range of potential stakeholders and presented them with a clean, easy to use UX, but we also needed to account for the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, working toward AA standard.
Hewitt Matthews have strong experience both in designing and delivering accessibility websites for the public and private sector. Our history of working with government bodies, publicly listed businesses, CIC and charities made this project much fast to deliver but importantly, meant that we could ensured complete compliance with WCAG 2.1 AA for the Client’s new website.
We highly recommend Hewitt Matthews who built our website and our LMS. It was a very impressive service from the pitch to getting our new website 'live'. They were very responsive and attentive to our needs and they have a large team to draw experience and skills from.
