    Use More than Color Alone to Convey Information in a Web Page


    We should not use color alone as the only visual means of conveying information, indicating an action, prompting a response, or distinguishing a visual element. Users may not be able to see/understand the differences in color and require additional indicators.

    Along with color, use additional indicators such as:

    • typography
    • shapes
    • grids
    • spaces
    • and/or allocate more weight to important elements
