Accessible design doesn’t just create delightful experiences for your users, it also leads to real business results. Studies show that accessible websites reach a bigger audience, are more SEO friendly, have faster download times, and always lead to better usability.
As designers, it is our responsibility to advocate for accessibility in everything we touch. And, why wouldn’t we? It’s a win-win for every party involved.
These six designs, found on Dribbble, celebrate inclusivity and serve as beautiful reminders of its importance:
By Hannah Swann for Asana. Designed for the work management software company’s hackathon, this chunky illustration features hands coming together, an eye, glasses, part of a wheel, a jigsaw puzzle, and more to represent inclusivity.
