Access Design is a web and print design agency that has worked with a wide variety of non-profit, educational, and progressive organizations over the past 10 years both in Toronto and internationally. During years of experience working within the social services, we frequently saw a need for organizations to better communicate with their audiences. Websites that are out of date (and hard to update), uninviting research reports that only an academic would read, and inefficient ways of online service delivery are all too common. Access Design was created out of the desire to change these situations, and to help you mobilize all of your important knowledge and information.
