#24 - Nailing Accessibility In Design

Hey folks,

Here are a few things I thought were worth sharing this week:

  1. “Our aim was to…deliver a consistent rebranded experience while tackling critical improvements to site architecture, code modularity, and overall performance and accessibility.” Mina Markham, Senior Engineer runs through the re-design and build of Slack.com.

  2. Stop Designing For Only 85% Of Users: Nailing Accessibility In Design is a great place to start if you’re not familiar with design for accessibility.

  3. FontSelf Maker has a ton of new updates. You can now create kerning pairs, ligatures, and discretionary alternates, making the software a viable option if you want to design decorative fonts. Check out my typography collection on Product Hunt for other great type tools.

  4. I discovered a great new podcast called Hurry Slowly, which looks at how you can be more productive, creative, and resilient through the simple act of slowing down.

  5. Timing automatically tracks where you’re spending your time. Pretty cool for productivity nerds or if you want to work out where you’re wasting your time. It also plays nice with Ulysses for the writers out there.
