We're very grateful to have had the chance to finally collaborate with you and we look forward to the next opportunity! The developed site is terrific, you were a pleasure to work with, and we really enjoyed the entire process. Frank Maidens - Studio Function
I needed a developer who could execute a full-scale web app accurately, on-time, and without surprises. I've worked with a lot of developers over the years, and let me tell you - it is tough to find responsible devs who have the technical chops and an intuitive understanding of design. Working with Heidi was a pleasure and I'd hire her again! Luke Canning - GRAND
Heidi is an expert in the area of accessibility and I can highly recommend her work. Constance Exley - Accessibility Services Canada
Thanks so much for your work on our websites. Our design team has reported on how great you are to work with and I can't thank you enough for making it such a smooth process. You have truly delivered on your promise to "develop to design". Wendy Gray - Gravity Inc.
Work with me
Design partners appreciate my:
- Eye for design - Creating a site that honours and upholds the integrity of the initial design mockups.
- Quality code - Writing modern, robust code that follows web standards and web accessibility guidelines.
- Consultation - Providing clear, informed input on a project's design and/or functionality when needed.
- Partnership - Collaborating on multiple projects over time to streamline processes, foster great communication, and build a strong working relationship with my design clients.
- Outlook - Producing quality work, having good communication, and respecting deadlines while also understanding that clarifications, tweaks, and last minute client changes can be part of what makes a good site great.
- Focus - Working on one project at a time, on a full-time basis.
Accessibility consulting is also available, should you need a website audited, or need guidance on how to make a design meet WCAG criteria (typically to meet AODA or ADA legislation requirements).
Arch Inclusive Inc. is a web development shop owned and operated by Heidi Valles. Located in rural Ontario, Canada, I work remotely with design studios across North America.
I have a Computing and Math degree, have worked professionally as a developer for nearly 20yrs, and specialize in web accessibility.
