When you create color palettes for your web design projects, are you testing the color combinations for contrast? If you're not, you might not be considering the eventual readability of the design and thus losing potential audience.
I’ve been working on a process to help me ensure good color contrast and readability in my projects. Thanks to some helpful color contrast accessibility tools, I think I have something that is working and wanted to share with others in the event that you find it helpful, too.
I should mention that I’m far from an accessibility expert. My goal here is to simply show that a little bit of effort can go a long way when it comes to selecting colors with optimal readability in mind. Check out W3C for a more thorough explanation. Also, check out Contrast Rebellion for an interesting look at the contrast problem.
