Services

Accessibility

Accessibility encompasses digital environments designed for all. Avaava is pioneering accessibility services in Finland. We provide services to designers and implementers at different stages of accessibility implementation. Due to the diversification of digital environments, consideration of accessibility is increasingly more important.

Design for All

Design for All (DfA) means physical life environments that take into account the diversity of people. Designing an all-inclusive environment means accessibility of physical services and implementation of equality in the built environment.

Signage

Signage design is one of the cornerstones of Avaava. Our experience spans more than 10 years and more than 50 extensive projects. We have developed our own signage and wayfinding method that considers the needs and limitations of different people. We also use the Kohodesign® signage system based on sensory observations and various intelligent guidance-related solutions.
