We’re a boutique company, with lots of experience and a whole new attitude.
We formed TetraLogical in 2019 because we saw the market become more driven by legal compliance than meeting the needs of different people. Compliance is important but it doesn’t guarantee inclusion, so we bridge the gap between the two in intelligent ways tailored just for you.
We like new ideas and finding pragmatic solutions to complex problems. We know that inclusion takes many forms, so our services encompass knowledge, experience, strategy, assessments, and development.
We put people first: you and your customers, our partners and employees, and everyone we meet. TetraLogical is founded on four principles that mean everything we do is:
- Inclusive: we consider everyone and make decisions that exclude no-one
- Sustainable: we work collaboratively and efficiently to amplify enduring accessibility
- Ethical: we make decisions for the good of our clients and their customers, our people, and for the world at large
- Original: we like new ideas and finding simple solutions to complex problems
Every member of our team has more than 10 years’ experience in the technology industry; we’ve all been involved in accessibility since its earliest days on the web.

Formerly at the BBC, The Paciello Group, Opera Software and RNIB Henny is in her element working with multi-disciplinary teams to help infuse inclusion in each step in the Software Development Lifecycle.
