ACCESS FOR ALL

As part of my Advanced Web Graphics module in the third year of my degree, I was asked research into web accessibility standards, write a short essay and then design a website which took my findings into account.

Considering my tendency to design websites that are a little more unique, I struggled to combine the two. In the end, I chose a blue colour scheme as I knew it was the least likely to cause problems for people with impairments with their colour vision. Additionally, I also employed a style switcher to allow users to change the size of the type on the page, as well as remove the extraneous imagery and to render the page as plain text. This site also led me to learn how to employ CSS sprites as a graphical method of navigation which i've subsequently used and found to be very effective.
