300FeetOut 100% believes in inclusion for all and are fully aware that this is an on-going process. Websites are constantly being updated, browsers are pushing out new versions, and creators don’t always have empathy for their audience. Therefore, we work with our clients on a monthly basis to continually update and make sites easier for everyone to access.

Or as our tagline says: Connecting brands with people.
