Content design

We design informational content to answer usersโ€™ needs. We meet WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility standards and are guided by usability research. Content we create can be comprehended, trusted and acted on in a wide range of user contexts. For example, when they:

  • are scan reading
  • have physical or cognitive accessibility challenges
  • have limited literacy or fluency
  • experience exclusion or vulnerability in society
  • are emotionally overwhelmed or tired
  • are multi-tasking
