Accessibility Services

Accessibility is core to our work. We bring accessibility into all of our user experience (UX) work. We go beyond compliance and consider it our responsibility to create inclusive experiences.

Twenty percent of the world’s population have physical challenges across a broad spectrum of abilities. This includes sight, hearing, mobility, and cognition. The best designs work for the widest audience and unlock the most significant benefits to our organization. And investment in accessibility contributes directly to greater SEO.

We’re a partner organization you can rely on to bring accessibility into every project, from strategy and research to design and development. Accessibility is the most innovative and least expensive when addressed early and often in product development. Blink has a full-time Head of Inclusive Design to guide the effort. We train our practitioners to understand how to apply accessibility within their specialty area. They consider accessibility in everything they do.

6 Tips for Improving Your Website Accessibility

The benefits of the web are not evenly distributed. It promises easy access to content and tools for everyone, but frequently fails to include the needs of people with impairments, whether permanent (over 57 million people in the US alone) or temporary (all of us at one point or another).

Visual design tips for non-designers: using color

In an effort to do my part and help increase the world’s number of well-designed presentations, I’m starting a series called “Design Tips For Non-Designers.” These tips aren’t intended to make designers out of non-designers.

This is for all the project managers, researchers, and marketing folks out there who want to improve their deliverables. You know who you are.
