We recognise the importance of widening our reach and making our business accessible to everyone, regardless of ability. We are committed to increasing the accessibility, inclusivity and usability of our website and business practices, in doing so we aim to adhere to as many of the available standards and guidelines.


Visiting our office

We want to ensure our office is easily accessible for all, so we have disabled toilets and step-free access to the office via the lifts.


The work we produce

We believe that inclusive design is good design. This means integrating disability and inclusion from the ground up in everything we produce for ourselves and our clients. We’re committed to educating everyone on how to do it, so everyone can enjoy the experience of the work we produce. In the ever-changing world of digital accessibility and usability factors, this means our team is continuous learning – which we’re always happy to do!


Using our website

We are constantly reviewing our website to ensure it’s easy to use and accessible by all. If you have any feedback or issues using the site, please contact us at

Best practices in accessibility are adhered to in the HTML markup which follows WCAG 2.1 guidelines. This includes use of ARIA attributes, logical structural markup and visually hidden interactive controls.

HTML is constructed with semantics in mind and is tested with Google Chrome’s “Lighthouse” tool during development and currently scores 95%. Tests include:

  • Screen reading technology is supported through the use of “skip links”, accessible names on visible links and buttons and “alt” attributes on images.
  • Background and foreground colours have a sufficient contrast ratio
  • Heading elements appear in a sequentially-descending order
  • Focusable elements have a unique `id` to ensure that they’re visible to assistive technologies
  • The <html> element has a valid value for its “lang” attribute
  • Form elements have associated labels
  • Browser zooming is enabled on all devices
