Kinark needed a communications partner to help develop innovative content for its supplementary website, speakingofkidsmentalhealth.com, which encouraged people to learn, ask questions and join the dialogue surrounding children’s mental health. Accessibility was key, as the user group is incredibly diverse; children, adults and seniors with a variety of needs must be accommodated. One of the project’s main goals was to ensure accessibility and usability of all web content for all users.
Taking into account the needs of Kinark and the diverse needs of the site’s anticipated users, and keeping in mind Ontario’s proposed accessibility standards, Nyman Ink created a dramatic website with clean, well-organized navigational strategies. Based on the standards of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the site is highly accessible and promotes positivity, open communications and equal access. The many accessibility features include keyboard-option navigation and accommodation for colour blindness, visual impairment, learning or cognitive disabilities and seniors’ needs.
