Designing for accessibility with empathy: how we approached the new Springer journal pages
Building the world to be inclusive by design, whether they be physical spaces or digital, benefits everyone.

In this guest post, James Alegria, Digital Brand Designer at SN, explains how the features of the new Springer journal pages were built with this in mind.
