ABOUT THE PROJECT
Universal design (in Norwegian: UU) are legally required policies regarding usability, meaning that all technological solutions can be used by as many people in society as possible, regardless of disability. To achieve this, we need to take people with different disabilities into consideration when designing e.g. applications, ticket vending machines or ATMs, or as in this project; UU public webpages.
The Norwegian Agency for Public Management and eGovernment (Difi) is responsible for monitoring whether universal design regulations are met online and in public services. Their web pages provide information about § 14 in the Anti-Discrimination and Accessibility Act and the regulations that legislate universal design of information and communication technology (ICT) in Norway.
Providing information and guidance material about various societal services to the public is one of the main tasks for Difi. Their web pages give information about what, why and how private market actors and public institutions can provide services that have a universal design.
All illustrations and animated videos are made by Tank Design.
WHAT WERE THE RESULTS?
The new web pages make it a lot easier for the target group (private market actors and public institutions) to find the information they needed about Universal Design, understand it and apply it to their own web pages and services.
Halogen delivered the concept, information architecture, interaction design and graphic design on the web pages. The web pages follow all the principles for universal design, of course.
