The role of Color Contrast in Mobile-Friendly design

Color contrast in UX design refers to the noticeable difference between different colors in user interface components. For example, text should have enough color contrast with the background to make the text readable.


Color contrast in UX design is even more important for people with vision deficiencies. People with color blindness or other visual impairments heavily rely on well-contrasted designs to access information seamlessly.
