Over the years, we have also participated in initiatives that promote accessibility in graphic design, such as acting on the RGD Accessibility Initiative Advisory Committee and presenting at the RGD 2014 Web Design Accessibility Conference on issues ranging from advanced web accessibility strategies to best practices for client collaboration in accessibility projects.
