Making software that is both beautiful and intuitive are guiding principals for us here at Planning Center. Recently, we've increased our focus on another pillar of design: accessibility. Accessibility in web design is a broad term that covers a wide range of issues but at its core, it is all about identifying and removing barriers for people with disabilities or impairments. This is, and will continue to be, an ongoing effort across all of our products.
Today, Calendar is continuing this effort by using darker colors for our tags so they meet WCAG standards when acting as a background for white text or as colored text on a white background. While we've made other adjustments (ex: increasing keyboard navigability) this one directly affects all of our users so we wanted to give you a heads up on why this was changing.
Bonus points: I honestly think these new colors look really nice with Calendar's signature red and that's what you call a win/win situation 😍
