Sensory Oasis: Where Inclusivity Isn't Just a Buzzword, It's a Lifestyle!

Sensory Oasis: Where Inclusivity Isn't Just a Buzzword, It's a Lifestyle!

Hey there, amazing human!

Ever scrolled through an online store and thought, "Wow, they really don't get it?"

Well, Sensory Oasis is here to flip the script!

We're not just another web-based store selling stuff; we're a full-blown, mission-driven extravaganza aimed at neurodivergent and disabled teens and adults. So, buckle up, buttercup!

We're diving into the world of Sensory Oasis, where inclusivity is more than just a checkbox - it's in our DNA - literally!

Contrast and Colours: Because Life Isn't Black and White?

Our website is new and very much a work in progress and as we learn more, we will adjust and improve. As with most tech-based things however, there are some limitations, so where we can, we will do our best to adapt and adjust.

Just as you would expect with your needs in life.

Our concept and design were always considered and shaped from our own lived experience we have collectively.

We used safe contrasting colours, guided by the WGAC 2.0 of course, which are not just eye-candy; they're an accessibility and readability revolution! Designed for accessibility readers, text to speech, sensitive eyes, those with dyslexia or other learning or communication processing difficulties.

Our colour scheme is reflective of our introverted, dark humoured yet youthful, fun selves, plus it’s our fearless leader’s favourite colour. It is as inviting as a deep squeeze body hug. Or, you know, as close to a deep hug as pixels can get.

Fonts: Because Serifs are So Last Decade

Comic Sans walked so that our easy-to-read, sans-serif fonts could run. Research says sans-serif fonts are the bee's knees for readability (British Dyslexia Association, 2018). So, we're serving you accessibility on a silver platter, sans the headache.

Graphics: More Than Just Pretty Pictures

Our logo and selected graphics on the website are like the Swiss Army Knife of imagery - functional, intuitive, and oh-so-relatable. We've handpicked every element to represent diversity and inclusivity.

It also represents our own family of three boys, now growing into young adults, and each with their own spectrum of strengths and interests. The triangles represent strength and mountain tops where the journey is often hard yet worthy once the view can be seen. Just like life and being neurodivergent can be.

It's like a visual high-five to our mission of embracing all the colours of the human rainbow.

Brand Vibes: Where Purpose Meets Sass

Okay, let's get real for a second. You know those brands that slap the word "authenticity" on their mission statement and call it a day? Yeah, we're not one of them. When we say we're here to help you "live authentically," we mean it in every fibre of our being - or in this case, every pixel on our screen. 

A Digital Playground Like No Other

Imagine a playground where the slides are made of silk, the swings never squeak, and you never, ever have to wait your turn. That's what we're aiming for with our website. It's designed to be your digital sanctuary, a place where you can explore, learn, and most importantly, find products that resonate with your unique needs.

Supportive, Safe, Empowering: The Unicorn of Today’s World

Let's break it down, shall we

- **Supportive**: Our products aren't just items in a catalogue; they're handpicked tools to support your daily life. And our customer service? Think of us as your personal cheerleading squad, pom-poms, and all.

- **Empowering**: Ever put on a superhero cape when you were a kid and felt like you could conquer the world? That's the feeling we want you to have when you find products that make you feel great! We're not just selling products; we're selling empowerment in a bottle (or a sensory cushion, or a fidget toy - you get the gist).

Unapologetically You

You know that feeling when you walk into a room and realize you can be 100% yourself? If not yet - that’s ok.
