The Federal Office for Accessibility has the task of bundling expertise on the subject of accessibility at a higher level nationwide. Located under the umbrella of the Deutsche Rentenversicherung, Knappschaft Bahn See, the specialist office advises on the topics of accessibility and inclusion, organises conferences and produces information material on the education and implementation of accessibility in all federal institutions. After all, all its institutions are committed to accessibility.

With the help of inkl., the Federal Agency is initially setting a good example with a new brochure. We have paid particular attention to the development of a barrier-free corporate typeface.

In addition, for the first time contents are also presented in Easy-to-Read Language. An image concept, which inkl. Design developed, is now finally in line with the demands of the tasks. With QR codes, the brochures refer to extended barrier-free content, which can be experienced by all user groups on the website. There are, for example, videos in sign language.

In order to keep the federal office under the roof of the Knappschaft Bahn See on everyone’s lips at ministries and authorities, we have developed the Knappschaft logo into a catchy, barrier-free brand that people remember. The relaunch of the entire website, for which inkl. is responsible, will raise the effectiveness and external impact of the federal authority to a sustainable level, both visually and in terms of content.
