the vision

Enabling individuals with disabilities to have the resources and information available to make travel more accessible.

Universal accessibility for all meant starting with the web user. To accommodate all users the application was built using WCAG 2.1 guidelines. The design uses a minimalist approach with distinguished elements to avoid confusion and increase legibility for any user.

the impact

Blue Trunk’s mission was to fill a gap they found where there are few resources available for accessible travel accommodations. Disabilities are both visible and invisible, according to the CDC 1 in 4 people live with a disability. The application empowers everybody to travel with accommodation and experience all life offers.
