We specialize in branding and identity, website design and development, and digital marketing. Through extensive research, we focus on finding the right solution for your business.

Today we`re celebrating Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD)!

Observed every third Thursday in May, GAAD is a day to raise awareness and promote digital access and inclusion for people with disabilities or impairments.

And speaking of accessibility, is your website in compliance with the most recent global accessibility guidelines? If you aren`t sure or want assistance optimizing your digital platforms for better accessibility and inclusivity, we can help! First Ascent is proud to be an agency partner with UserWay – a.k.a. the world’s #1 website accessibility solution.

With technology developed by @userwayorg, small businesses and nonprofits get access to a detailed breakdown of any potential compliance issues on their website. UserWay also offers a comprehensive toolkit for adapting any website – including fonts, animations, language options, and more – to cater to users with visual or motor impairment, epilepsy, ADHD, dyslexia, and other disabilities.

As UserWay puts it "Digital access is a human right." We couldn`t agree more and we`re proud to be a part of their mission to level the playing field for people of all abilities. Happy Global Accessibility Awareness Day!

Zip Code is a nonprofit organization supporting the economic development of the greater Wilmington Region by providing accessible and affordable software programming training to high-potential individuals, helping them become entry level software developers and data engineers.

We think Zip Code`s mission is incredibly cool, and were excited to partner with their organization on a website refresh. For this project, our design team worked with core branding elements, expanding off of their existing assets and logo and accentuating aspects of their brand palette.

Zip Code`s new site showcases the work they do and their community impact with an updated and attention-grabbing user experience. Check out the end result and learn more about @zipcodewilm at zipcodewilmington.com

As you can probably tell from our photo booth montage, members of our team had fun attending the Delaware Center for Justice`s Annual Celebration last Friday night at the Delaware Contemporary.

Each year the event honors Delawareans making a difference in justice-impacted communities including members of the DCJ team, and others who support the organization`s mission through policy work.

It was an inspiring night filled with music, art, good food, and good company, and we especially loved hearing from members of the community who have been directly impacted by the work of @delawarecenter4justice

We are honored to be able to support such an incredible organization!

Save the Date! On Tuesday, May 21 at 10am, our very own Digital Marketing Manager, Nicole, will be sharing all of her word wizardry secrets for making your website pages and online content more findable by Google. Using content to find new audiences is great–using content to find the people who are already looking for you is even better.
