Toucan Europe Ltd.

1998 - 2000

My first paid job as a web designer. The sites I designed while working for Toucan hailed from pre-standards days. HTML 4.0 Transitional with a comparatively basic stylesheet. Accessibility was my priority from the very beginning. However, back in 1998 this simply meant removing all FONT tags from the HTML and labelling images with ALT attributes. My earliest sites were made for Netscape 3. CSS layout was still in the distant future.

For Toucan Europe I developed and maintained a number of ESF funded project websites. Unfortuantely none of them exist anymore, including the Toucan main site. Some of the projects were:

  • Millennium Volunteers
  • Developing Employment in the Information Society. For this site I also maintained a subject-specific weblog from 1999 - 2000.
  • TAD - Telematics and Disability.
  • Online Information on Employment and Training Opportunities for Disabled People (ON-LINE) (a pity that some projects don't live on).
  • Pandora Project
  • Teleweb - Information and support for teleworkers
