Guidelines

There are graphic communication guidelines, such as best practice guidelines on producing graphic communication for people with less than perfect, or aged eyesight. The (Disability Discrimination Act, 1995) requires information to be available in accessible formats. We can help you with:

  • Basic plain English writing guidelines.
  • Clear, large and giant print transcription, including the Royal National Institute for the Blind See it Right: Making information accessible for people with sight problems guidelines, for people with visual impairments (RNIB, Lighthouse).
  • Corporate identity guideline adherence (NHS, Orange, Macmillan Cancer Support).
  • Easy read, for people with learning difficulties (Department of Health).
  • Inclusive design aspects.
  • Legibility (typeface selection).
  • Penguin typesetting composition rules (Jan Tschichold).
  • Printer specifications (Lightning Source: File creation guide, Biddles).
  • Regulatory affairs and guidelines.
  • The Information Standard quality mark (NHS England): we can help with graphic communication design to compliment the requirements of this standard.
  • Typographic design for children, dyslexic, visually impaired and ageing users.
  • Usability.
  • World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) guidelines.
