Usability & Accessibility
As Steve Krug’s wife puts it so eloquently: “If something is hard to use, I just don’t use it as much.” This summarizes quite well the idea behind usability: every design element should take user interaction into consideration in order to find seamless solutions to any potential problems that could create user’s confusion or frustration, before they arise.
In short, that means minimal design does the thinking when designing your site so that your users don’t have to while using it.
Allowing access to the content of your website to people with disabilities is a no-brainer… right? Yet many websites do not comply with the W3 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and/or the U.S. Federal Government Section 508 Guidelines.
minimal design builds every websites with accessibility in mind, complying with as many accessibility guidelines as each project allows.
