Getting started

Accessibility for visual designers

Everyone benefits from designs that are easier to see. People with different visual abilities see your designs in varying ways—the diverse nature of impairments creates a wide variation in how your designs are perceived. A clean and clear visual presentation helps everyone make sense of a website’s information and functionality.

How to use this guide

We recommend planning for accessibility in your design process and regularly conducting accessibility testing throughout the design and development processes.

If you have project-specific questions, ask your agency’s accessibility team.
