August 2020[edit]

According to a 2020 analysis, having a responsive design is an absolute must. hightechdevs com www.hightechdevs com Responsivity (meaning viewable on any device) might be the largest implementation you should use in 2020. Whether you look at a website on a laptop, desktop, iPad, iPhone, etc. the design of the website NEEDS to be able to be seen and clear on what the point is. In fact, 85% of people now use their smartphones before looking at a laptop. That goes to show how incredible and essential for the user to clearly see and for Google to clearly show what topic you are trying to get across. Google needs to be able to hightechdevs com crawl your site using a sitemap and allowing for your website to be recognized by Google.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Dmerkin2 (talkcontribs)

Web designers should be aware of web accessibility guidelines regardless whether they take part in creating markup or not[edit]

  • What I think should be changed:

"[...] and if their role involves creating markup then they are also expected to be up to date with web accessibility guidelines." to "[...] and web accessibility guidelines."

  • Why it should be changed:

When designing the user interface for a website, web designers need to be aware of the web accessibility guidelines. The guidelines directly impact how the designer chooses to create the colour palette, the contrast between the text and the backgrounds, the navigation layout, the size of the elements, and so on. There's more to consider when working with the dark mode, e.g. the brightness of assets, which are usually tuned down by setting opacity to 85%. Whether the web designer is involved in writing markup or not, their visualisation of the interface should meet the web accessibility guidelines before it reaches the development stage. The current definition suggests that web accessibility in web design is conditional. It should be unconditional.

yellow tickY Partly done: Thank you for such a direct and succinct edit request, it's very appreciated! I've performed the requested edit. I've opted to not add the source, however, as the page appears to be an explanation regarding web accessibility. The crux is that it does not demonstrate or claim that web designers as a profession should be aware of it, which is what the relevant sentence would want.
