Accessible Design Services


We can create accessible symbol information, tailored to your needs.

By using Widgit symbols, you will be able to provide access and inclusion for adults and children who find reading text difficult for a variety of reasons, including learning needs, EAL and low literacy skills.

By adding our symbols to your existing information, signage or website, you will be able to engage and communicate clearly with your clients; providing a richer connection between people and place.

Our specialist design team will work in partnership with your organisation to produce symbolised documents which cater for your individual requirements.

Bespoke service
We consult with you throughout the design process, creating new symbols where necessary, to ensure that the end result is fit for purpose and appropriate for the different needs of your client base.

Best practice
We can also work with you to develop your understanding and knowledge of “best practice” in symbol accessibility and suggest the most appropriate language for your information.

Meeting your responsibilities
An inclusive approach to the design of your product or service will help you to ensure compliance with current legislation on accessibility.
