Web accessibility is the degree by which people with disabilities can access and use your web content. It consists of principles and techniques practised by web designers and developers as they design and build websites.

Some of our recent work...

Te Haeata

The Te Haeata homepage features a video of Aotearoa landscapes provided by NZ Story. After logging in the page shows stills from the video to carry these beautiful landscapes throughout the site alongside the simple and strong kowhaiwhai ribbon. The design reflects the name of Te Arawhiti, which means ‘the bridge’. The name symbolises the bridge between Māori and the Crown, the past and the future, and the journey from grievance to partnership.
