What is Blue Beanie Day?
Blue Beanie Day is an annual celebration on 30 November. Starting in 2007, it recognises web standards and has traditionally been used by developers and designers to celebrate and raise awareness around web standards. Look out for social media posts with #BlueBeanieDay and pics of web designers and developers in blue beanies!
More recently Blue Beanie Day has been focused on website accessibility, a very important element of web design. Accessibility is particularly important for our government clients, who are often required to meet the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA level. is the most recent set of guidelines. The WCAGs provide an excellent, and industry-approved standard for website accessibility. When websites are accessible, they can be viewed and easily understood by everyone.
