We are thrilled to announce that we won the award for Best Universal Design Award for 2015, at the IIA awards for our work on the Electric Ireland website. This award was created this year In recognition and celebration of Irish Design 2015 and is supported and presented by the Centre of Excellence for Universal Design. This award was judged from all entries.
“2015 is the Year of Design and in recognition and support of that the IIA understand the important role of web development agencies in ensuring that websites meet the very highest standards of Universal Design, which is to say accessibility for all. The winner of the Universal Design Award was judged from ALL 72 shortlisted companies across all categories. Through their work on Electric Ireland’s website, Arekibo were the standard bearers for design thinking with the customer in mind. The very fact that Electric Ireland have the widest possible demographic of customers and that Arekibo developed their website to accommodate accessibility for that demographic is a fantastic achievement and a very worthy winner” – Joan Mulvihill CEO of IIA.
