Lately, we’ve been working on updating a variety of sites and focusing on accessible content, design, and media. When going through some of our tasks, we uncovered a tricky accessibility compliance item: logos. Now they’re not tricky in the sense that we don’t know what to do with them, but they’re tricky because there is more than one method to solving their accessibility.
At Hook 42 we value inclusivity in all aspects of our business. From the people we hire to the products we build, creating a space that is accessible to everyone is important to us.
Web accessibility, or a11y for short, is becoming a bigger and bigger priority for many organizations. And that's where we come in. With a team of experts working by your side, we can be your on-call a11y specialists, helping you achieve your digital accessibility goals.
Accessibility at Hook 42
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to web accessibility. We carefully review and analyze each area of your website to set you up for success. Since there are a number of ways to be compliant, we've got you covered from beginning to end. No matter what stage of a project you're in, we can help you create a path forward.

From start to finish, we implement accessible best practices throughout our projects.

Each project is carefully tested and spot-checked throughout the course of the build to ensure accessible implementation.
Beyond Building Accessible Websites
If you plan from the start to build an accessible product, web accessibility becomes much more manageable. However, not always is there a case for starting fresh. Hook 42 also tackles web accessibility by itself. We have consulted with numerous clients to help develop an accessibility plan and remediation schedule, working as an extension of your team.
Hook 42 can work with you in the following ways to improve the accessibility of your existing website:
- Perform Site Audits

- Create a Remediation Plan and Schedule

It’s always a good idea to give your website a new coat of proverbial paint every so often. With the release of Drupal 8, we took the opportunity to not only upgrade our technology, but to completely redesign the look and feel along with the Drupal architecture.
With new responsive websites, it's more important than ever to look at your site at different widths. But this can be time consuming and repetitive. Also, you may want to see how your dev site compares to your live site - for example "Did this small change I made to the css on one page change much on other pages?" Again, time consuming to do by hand. Luckily for us, here comes Wraith to the rescue!
