Hello, I’m Stéphanie 👋

Mount Diablo, California – Jan 2019

I am a Designer based in North California. Seven years ago, I moved from Paris, France, where I was a Creative Director consultant. My experience as a foreigner living in a new country had been an eyeopener on the importance of providing good design to everyone.

The seed of this project has begun when I was researching how to design for accessibility. I started to collect online resources and created this blog, A11Y Toolbox, to share my list of articles, plug-ins, and many other resources around web accessibility.

Since I’ve started A11Y Toolbox, I passed the W3C Web Accessibility certification and I’m currently studying the IAAP Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies (CPACC.)

I’m seeking to become an accessibility expert and I’m learning every day. Feel free to contact me if you have any suggestions or any recommendations.

About the website

I created A11Y Toolbox theme with the WordPress Bootstrap Starter as a starting point. This requires front-end development skills that I’m always happy to keep up to date.

My secret power: dyslexia

I’m dyslexic and English is my second language. Please, don’t be annoyed if you see weird typos! Studying accessibility has helped me understand the mechanism of my dyslexia and accept this old frienemy.

Other stuff

On my spare time, I am a door hunter and a life-long mix-media artist.

Thank you

Warmest thanks to Antoine, Marie & Rakesh for their support in this new incredible journey 💜
