Tim Berners-Lee1 so famously said about the web: “This is for everyone.”2 We are with him and the philosophy of the #oneweb3 all the way. We believe that the internet with its vast content is for everyone. This means that websites need to be accessible: accessible inclusively to all people, accessible in turn to their chosen devices and accessible on connections of varying speeds.
One of the core aspects which makes designing for the web such exciting work is the ability make content available to all, to reach the few and the many. The very nature of our medium is intrensically accessible and in our view, only design which delivers on this promise can be considered successful. Accessibility is not a tick-box for us, inclusion is a way of thinking.
We designed and built this site to be easy to use by everyone, whatever your needs. We have thoroughly tested this site and aim to meet the WCAG 2.04 as outlined by the standards body of the W3C5
We hope you will not have any problems perusing our content. However, it is impossible to foresee all circumstances.
If you do find any issues, we would love to know. Please get in touch and tell us ~ we’d like to fix the problem if we can.
