Today sees the release of the first public working draft of WCAG 3.0 (formerly WCAG Silver). The document may seem — ironically — incomprehensible to many so it’s my aim to simplify and explain how I understand the guidelines themselves.

To start it’s worth mention this is one of the single biggest changes to web accessibilities standards that we have seen in over ten years and sees the discipline and professional practice push onto a new level.

Well the initial document that’s been published has one key thing to consider, it’s not what it includes at the moment, it’s what…


I intentionally share this story today, for today is the day after the Lord Mayor’s parade.

Yesterday was the International Day of Person’s with Disabilities. It was rightly a day of recognition, celebration and remembrance of the work done to that date.

We lit digital and physical alight with the purple of #PurpleLightUp, we raised the voices of those that most need raising, we followed the lead of groups like the Valuable500 and we paused and thought - as an industry -about what we can do to build it back better for all of society.

This last year to me…

As we head into the age of automation, machine learning and AI, human creativity becomes the ONLY difference between us and the machine. Creativity will ultimately be perhaps our only USP. The good news is that for those who practice creativity, the greatest opportunity lies ahead.

Given this is the second week running this has been done on a wednesday and i’ve only done 5 in total i’m no longer sure if this is late or if i’ve moved the day? Either way it’s here for you to read and contains a fair bit this week as it feels like the looming November deadline for the adoption of WCAG2.2. …

A little later than usual this week, mainly because things like life and work and all that jazz got in the way of writing it (is it writing or simply collating, I probably shouldn’t go down that route of philosophical quandary should I? I’ll end up realising this is nothing more than a glorified listical).

Anyway as is the way here’s a load of interesting things across the various scope of Inclusive Design, Accessibility, ethics…

Another Tuesday another round up of things i’ve found online that have tickled my fancy.

If i’m totally honest i’m surprised i’ve managed to get this far in, mind you in the times of Covid and lockdown there’s something cathartic in writing, whether you know if it’s being read or not (I’ll assume not for the most part as i’m fine with that; if it is it’s a bonus).

Anyway in this weeks collection there’s…

Another week another “article” full of things i’ve been reading, it’s a little shorter than the last few weeks, partly because I thought i was saving stuff to link drop and I wasn’t, and partly because life has been being life, but there’s also an article of pure brilliance and power that if you only read that and nothing else then it’s worth it.

Inclusive Design

Inclusive Design 24 — Another week another nod to Leonie Watson, at this rate I should probably start charging her advertising fees (only joking Leonie). But it was her again who pointed me in the direction of this wonderful (free) conference on inclusive design, with talks about everything from the XR space, to guerrilla testing strategies to colour theory and bias in AI. …

Inclusive Design

From Invisibility to radical empathy. A brilliant and powerful article about living with invisible disabilities and what that experience is like for a woman of colour. I would say more on this but this article is so powerful i’d just suggest you read the words of Dr. Dédé yourself.

Due to Covid, and it’s ramifications on our industry, we have seen many approaches on how to tackle digital and advertising with sensitivity, and yet still have a memorable and successful impact for the businesses we represent.

This task for many of us might feel Sisyphean in nature, though the boulder is replaced by Zoom calls, yet there is perhaps a solution readily available to us.

A recent study has shown that the key to success in these times comes from a seemingly simple action, the action of being empathetic. …
