Background

Autistica are at the forefront of research that makes the lives of autistic people and their families better. Their new website is a key tool in communicating with a variety of audiences, so they can do more of their crucial work in this area.

Objectives

The objectives of this design project were to better showcase their research projects, their impact on people's lives and how a wide range of people can get involved.

This was achieved by:

  1. Focusing on accessible design principles.
  2. Creating content which effectively explained complex scientific information, in ways that anybody could understand.
  3. Allowing the people whose lives are impacted by Autistica's research explain its importance and impact.
