This course gives an excellent step-by-step introduction to the application of colour in web design and factors to consider with colour usage.
I especially enjoyed learning about how to design for color blind people. This is a really great class on color. Thanks
Wow, if I had to choose one word to describe this class it would be "awareness". This course will change the way you think about color on the Web. Geri touched on the 60/30/10 rule, correct color contrasts for web accessibility, and ways that colors hinder user experiences. Well done!
