Idris Reed WackerI care about balance, simplicity and refinement. I design and make things for a day job and in my personal life. I enjoy traveling light and spending time on the beach with my family and friends.

Accessibile design approach

I approach web design with accessibility in mind from the start instead of trying to make a design and build accessible afterwards. I don't just mean WCAG. Color contrast, markup structure, native controls, typography, layout, components and the device agnostic approach should all be considered when designing with an eye for accessibility.

Everything all the time

Don't do each phase of the project once. Refine and edit every piece of the design and build, always. Everything in the production environment is unfinished, and finished. Every possible piece of the web project is happening all at once. Live that way and nothing will frustrate you. Everything that happens will be something that you've seen before.

Make something of value

There have been many challenges working for Seattle Colleges along the way. But one thing that always makes the work worthwhile is what we do. The city colleges are an open door for all people to begin to make their life better.
