Not Your Typical Accessibility Story

null
ilumino was created from a very unique dream shared by two individuals. Meet Jenna – wholehearted Accessibility Advocate, and Mark – an entrepreneur passionate about running honest businesses where the customer’s best interest drives the vision.

Passion fueled conversations about the state of digital accessibility from each of their individual perspectives shed light on the following undeniable realities: the lack of clear guidance, the challenges being presented to businesses, and the unfortunate circumstance some ventures have found themselves in after unknowingly (and unintentionally!) purchasing snake-oil services or following misguided advice.

Which led to the following questions: Why isn’t there a company focused on helping these struggling businesses? Why is education so lacking in this space, and when present, so confusing? Why do so few solutions have the customer’s best interests in mind? Why are companies allowing people to purchase services that won’t move the needle in terms of risk management or ensure inclusivity for their customers?

And so ilumino was founded to light the path to digital accessibility compliance with an honest, educational, and genuine approach. We hope you enjoy and benefit from what we have to offer as much as we’ve enjoyed providing it to you.
