Accessibility

RISA is an Information Technology Company specializing in the areas of Cybersecurity, Data Science, and Amazon Web Services. As a government contractor, RISA is required to have a Section 508 compliant website—meaning, everything needs to be compliant with the highest level of accessibility standards. I always aim to make my sites accessible via thoughtful design and simple layout changes, but for this level of compliance I installed Accessibe to automate the process.

An information-rich site like RISA's requires major organization for visitors to be able to process what they're looking at. I worked with the team at RISA to condense and simplify where possible, so that each service offering could really provide the greatest value to their prospects. The design of the site was also due for an update, so I made some minor color palette and font selection changes, while selecting impactful new imagery for certain sections. Altogether, these updates really transformed RISA's site, and prepared their online presence for years to come.
