"We’ve always considered ourselves to be inclusive, but Beth and Alex have helped us achieve our inclusive and diverse remit in a more far-reaching and comprehensive way. As a matter of course, we now include them in our editorial process for every book that we publish. They are always prompt with their responses, make additional suggestions and carry out extensive research to make sure all references are up to date. As we do not yet have the resources to do this work in-house, they have become an essential part of our extended team."
Publisher, Child's Play (International) Ltd.
"Working with Inclusive Minds has opened my eyes to the myriad decisions in a book's creation that determine its accessibility. From discussions around typefaces and spots colours, to shaping the messages embedded in a book's text and artwork, their advice and feedback has heightened my awareness of what contributes to a book being truly inclusive."
Commissioning Editor, Children's Books, Tate Publishing
"Your expertise has been invaluable to us in planning one of our forthcoming titles. Your careful eyes and methodical journey through the illustrations — the words and worlds we had chosen to show in pictures — ensured that the book worked inclusively at every level.The team at Barefoot would welcome more of your expertise, both in our editorial work and to open the studio and our Barefoot world to as many children and families as possible."
Commissioning Editor, Barefoot Books
