This week I’ve got just a few things for you. One great accessibility tool to help you make your site better for all users; a YouTube channel that offers insights; and lastly one absolutely beautiful inspiration site.
First time here? Welcome!
Each week I collect things I find interesting or useful and post them here. I hope you enjoy these things too.
Let’s get to it.
The first thing I have for you is a site called Contrast Ratio. This is a really nice utility that will help you check to make sure your text/background color combinations have enough contrast to be read by everyone.
There’s a new YouTube channel that’s quickly gaining an audience. Kristy Viers, who is blind, has launched a YouTube channel where she demonstrates how she uses her technology. Her intent is to help developers understand how users who are visually impaired interact with computers, phones and tablets. Her videos provide valuable information for anyone creating websites.
Personal sites are a big trend in web design right now. There’s some really beautiful work being done out there. An example of this is Christopher Kirk-Nielson’s site (ht / Piccalilli for sharing this). It’s absolutely gorgeous (warning: there are animations that start immediately). Have a look and be inspired to create your own amazing personal site.
That’s it for this week.
This was my first week restarting this blog so most of my time was spent getting it ready to launch. I’ll be back next week with a lot more resources and fun stuff.
