Setting web accessibility standards for employers

Case study: Accessible Employers website for the Presidents Group

2021

Testimonial

I would recommend KunStudios to anyone who wants to expand their website to meet and achieve accessibility standards.

Senior Accessibility Consultant, Accessible Employers Opens in new window

The Challenge

The Presidents Group had a website dedicated to accessible resources for employers that they had trouble updating. The site was built for accessibility on the front end, but the back-end was built unconventionally.

Every time they tried to update the site with new content, they’d run into problems that would require costly web developer support. There was also confusion between their organization The Presidents Group and the website which was called Accessible Employers.

They wanted their new website to be an example of web accessibility on the front and back end, allow users to find resources easily, and clear up confusion between their brand elements.

Project Scope

WordPress website design and build, accessibility testing and integration, ongoing website support

Wins

  • Website is a showcase of accessible design and development standards
  • Site’s backend is accessible and can be updated by current and future staff using a variety of assistive technologies including screenreaders
  • Complex information structures were organized so that resources and members are easy to find
  • Clarified brand positioning between the Presidents Group and Accessible Employers so there’s less confusion between the two entities

Strengthening web presence to promote literacy

Case study: Decoda Literacy Solutions Website

2021

Testimonial

We had a large and unwieldy website and had concerns about how we could take what we had and create what we needed. Krisztina and Lisa helped us define what we wanted to achieve with our new site: how it would work, look and feel, and how we could best manage it. We are thrilled with what we achieved. Thank you KunStudios!

Executive Director, Decoda Literacy Solutions Opens in new window

The Challenge

Decoda Literacy Solutions had a website that had organically grown over the years, leading to parts of the content and technology to be cobbled onto the original designs. The site had grown into a complex house of cards that staff were reluctant to touch and users had trouble navigating.

There was also some confusion between the organization and their foundation. Brand elements could use a refresh. Decoda wanted a bold new design that was easy for staff and users to use with a refreshed and polished look.

Project Scope

Brand refresh, WordPress website design and build

Wins

  • Users can navigate the site and do targeted information searches easily
  • Simplified website’s complex structure and functionality without cutting much content
  • Updated brand looks modern and clearly defines organization and foundation
  • Staff can update the website with ease and confidence
