A way of approaching accessibility from a design perspective
The dos and don’ts of designing for accessibility are general guidelines, best design practices for making services accessible.
Currently, there are six different posters in the series that cater to users from these areas: low vision, D/deaf and hard of hearing, dyslexia, motor disabilities, users on the autistic spectrum and users of screen readers.
The dos, that run across various posters, include using things like good colour contrasts, legible font sizes and linear layouts. So, aren’t good design principles applicable to everyone and not just those with access needs?
While this is true, the aim of the posters is to raise awareness of various conditions through good design practice. We need to be mindful of not just designing or building for our own immediate needs.
