What is a Blue Badge Style Gallery?
The Blue Badge Style Gallery is a photographic journey through a venue for people who are less physically able. In the same style as the venue’s brand a Blue Badge Style Gallery highlights the facilities and notes any potential obstacles. You can create your own BBS Gallery and it will be up and running in hours if you follow our instructions below or just contact us for more information.
Integrating a Blue Badge Style Gallery into your offering will entice people with disabilities to make an informed decision to visit, spend money and have a good time! It appears as a neat button on your website. This clicks through to images of your facilities in the same high-quality style as your brand, with pins and notes on various access points.
“Making buildings more accessible not only makes for a more equal society but also helps businesses unlock the purple pound, the £212 billion a year spending power of disabled people. This is why it’s good to see Blue Badge Style encouraging other organisations to take creative approaches to making spaces more accessible for disabled people.” Office For The Minister of Disabled People.
Why a Blue Badge Style Gallery – A Single Perspective of Disability
Watch this video to understand why a Blue Badge Style Gallery is invaluable in a disabled world.
Not all disabilities are the same & nowhere is 100% accessible!
There are 3 Gallery Styles
Blue Badge Style Gallery – Quick – (Create Your Own Access Description)
A Quick Gallery is a way to create your own access statement in hours. Just send us three photos and it can be up and running within 24 hours. We need to see and review three main spaces; the entrance, reception and bathroom/toilet. We add our guiding notes to these three images which are all in your brand style.
Within a week we can prepare a Full Gallery. The Blue Badge Style Gallery team covers all the relevant access points and facilities, taking stylish pictures. We then add our guiding notes and host it on our website, providing you with a website-ready button. View South Place Hotel and Angler Restaurant for examples of a Blue Badge Style Full Gallery.
Blue Badge Style Gallery – Virtual
Our VR team visits and records all the key facilities in virtual reality format. With the addition of our guiding notes the Virtual Gallery can then be presented on your website or viewed via a headset.

Blue Badge Style Consultancy
If you’re in the design phase, or having a revamp, we can advise on how to improve your facilities so that you comply with the law without compromising on style. We’re great believers in disability as a driver of invention and that good design can benefit everyone. As Cliff Kuang says,
“By designing with the disabled in mind, we can create products that are better for everyone else” Fast Company, February 2016
