We have been designing websites since 1998 serving a number of different needs, in many different contexts. We work with a team of new media consultants, graphic designers and Systematic analysts who between them have built sites for everyone from Wella Shockwaves to the Ministry of Defence.
By far our most frequent clients are charities and churches - and we now offer special rates for groups that fall into those categories. We are committed to the support of ethical and creative ventures, both on and off the web. We believe in ethical web design, one aspect of which is building accessible web sites and all the sites we create are designed in line with the World Wide Consortium Accessibility Guidelines.
Not everyone who visits your site can be assumed to have the same type of computer, the same type of browser or the same physical or sensory abilities. Accessible Web sites will work on both Apple Macs and PCs, Netscape Navigator, Internet Explorer, text only browsers and speciality browsers (for people with visual impairments, people with dyslexia or learning difficulties, and users who are learning new languages.).
Another consideration to bear in mind is that individuals and businesses using special devices to access the Internet (e.g. Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) , mobile phones or Digital Televisions) can encounter numerous problems when sites are not accessible. Accessible Web sites are more usable - therefore information can be found more easily and visitors to the site are more likely to return. Well designed accessible Web sites are also indexed by more search engines, increasing the number of visitors to these sites.
Accessible sites are about making multimedia content accessible to as wide an audience as possible. It does not mean you cannot use images, video, sound and so on. What is means is that we build a flexible site, enabling the individual to adjust the Web site to suit their own specific needs - thus allowing as many people as possible to enjoy the features that your site offers.
