Some things I've done.

Why accessible design is better design

Accessible design isn’t an obstacle to good design – it’s an opportunity for designers, developers, inventors and all other ideas people. By embracing the limitations of disability, we are driven to improve existing designs and create something that is a whole lot better to use, for all users.

Everyone has Disability

Accessible design isn’t just designing for a minority group who identify as having a permanent ongoing impairment. At its core, accessibility is about designing for diverse user needs and it benefits everyone, because everyone has disability.

Top tips for accessibility

A talk about how to test for accessibility at Microsoft's ‘Hack 4 Good’ event attended by web professionals from around the country. Discover the top tips for accessibility from a user experience point of view.

Inaccessible websites force many to ‘Click away’

Recent British research shows that UK businesses are losing out on huge sums of money – potentially totalling billions of dollars – by failing to make their websites accessible to users with access needs… and the same is bound to be true in Australia.

Accessible website design = optimal usability

There’s a myriad of articles out there on terrific colour combinations and graphics tips for website design. However, there’s not much useful information available on how to design a great looking, easy to navigate website that is accessible for those with a vision impairment or cognitive disability.
