^ This guy is totally right.
I myself am not blind, but I‘m far from a near-perfect eyesight.
Whenever I struggle to read something on the web, I pick a Color Contrast tool and measure the ratio of the foreground and background colors.
Every single time they fail the test. I‘m not talking about not being AAA-complaint. I‘m talking about not meeting AA or even AA-Large standards. They usually get between a 1–3 ratio.
The Heart shape is very interesting. Worth to consider the points already made by the previous designers in this thread.
The color palette is nice but, unfortunately, doesn't pass a color contrast test:
The other thing is that the logo + type is too horizontal, so you might experience issues down the road when resizing it to fit narrow areas. Worth presenting the logo in different contexts.
The whole site has terrible accessibility:
And more violations that aXe found (19 in total).
Unfortunately, that‘s the state of modern web design. Glitz over Usability.
Hope you guys can post this on YouTube or Vimeo. I find Facebook atrocious (I don’t have a FB account).
After reading your intro, I thought you were joking. But then I saw your portfolio, twitter, and video about IBM Plex. Impressive resume, sir!
Here's three questions for you:
Where's Eli Schiff when you need him?
What service will you use to live stream, and will a recording be available afterward?
If you want to stay in UI/Product design I'd also encourage you to get closer to the code / learn to code. You'll have an easier time developing produceable solutions that work within the limitations of your tech stack.
Very nice. You may want to check out this article on Accordion-Style Checkouts: https://baymard.com/blog/accordion-checkout-usability
