Collaboration

RCIL.org assists people with all types of disabilities - everything from visual impairment to physical ailments - each with their own challeneges. A large team of stakeholders advised on the project to ensure brand guidelines were adhered to as well as their community.

Through experience and feedback the following were areas of weakness on the old website:

  1. Confusing navigation
  2. Outdated design
  3. Non mobile
  4. Usability and content issues

Before & after

After meeting with the client and performing research, we began design's that addressed noted usability issues. The challenge was adhering to existing brand guildelines and ensuring the website offered a great user experience to those with a variety of disabilities.

The new site is responsive and works well on any device from mobile to desktop.

The Team

Given the importance on usability and the need to accommodate the visually impaired and those that may have physical limitations with navigation, we knew our proven design and development process would be the best way to handle the job. After weeks of user interface design and usability assessment, the site was ready to go to programming. Even marketing had a hand on the project as it related to content. The client interacted with all team members during the project to ensure a seamless experience.

Mobile design & user experience

User experience and accessibility were two of the biggest concerns for RCIL.org because of their audiences special needs.

How did we address this...

"The design for RCIL was focused on the types of users that were visiting the site and what their specific needs were."
