The old Pennichuck site was looking dated, and the client needed to bring their site up to date, to simplify their site navigation, streamline content, and provide greater accessibility for visually impaired visitors to the site. This is the first site I have designed for accessibility standards and worked closely with Perkins school for the blind. I learned so much about the visual, html and css requirements, as well as the careful consideration my programmers needed to put in so that the site can be viewed with vision impairments and those using screen readers.
We kept the design fairly spartan and clean - which suited both the client's aesthetic and the accessibility requirements. Although I wanted to make much more liberal use of photography to dress up pages, the client had me hold back and is slowly introducing their own photo resources over time.
