Adjustment of the visual design to meet the requirements of visually impaired user. This will be accomplished either by adjusting the existing design to their needs or by elaborating an additional theme.

This includes the following:

  • Refining the visual design so that customization of certain elements (use of different background, use of different highlight colors, use of different focus colors, etc.) can be offered
  • Definition of elements of customisation for all users (eg focus colour, background colour or structure, highlight colours) and propose a number of options for each case (eg 3 to 5 focus colour options, 3 to 5 background colour or structure, palettes for highlight colours)
  • Development of graphic elements for several applications based on wireframes and the existing visual design style.
  • Documentation of all graphic elements in a style guide (colors codes, measurement, etc.).
  • Preparation and delivery of all image files, including the source files for both the documentation and the images.
  • Provide a kit that will allow internal IT development to create basic icons that closely follow existing icon set in style.
