What They Needed
Following an initial analysis by Virtual Image, it was determined that nearly 30% of traffic to the Mitchell & Abbott Group site was originating from mobile devices. These findings represented a shift in the way their clients were accessing their content, and strongly suggested that a responsive redesign was in order.
What We Delivered
The VI design team got started right away on putting together a fresh and professional design for the new Mitchell & Abbott Group site. To ensure accessibility for differently abled individuals, multiple assistive features and technologies were built into the core functionality of the site. Key among these features is a site-wide font sizer, which allows each user to quickly and easily resize all type on each page to their preference. Contrast and ease of use were also prominent concerns when designing and building this site. Buttons, colours and highlights were carefully selected for their ability to enhance user experience.
With an approved design in hand, development was initiated. The Mitchell & Abbott Group web presence is quite extensive, so great care needed to be taken in order to ensure all of the features and functionality were transferred seamlessly to the new site. The turnover for this redesign was quite short, but the quality and completeness of the site did not suffer. The new Mitchell & Abbott Group site fosters inclusiveness and accessibility through it’s clean, modern and responsive appearance.
