Good UI, Psychology of UX, and overcoming negative associations in Accessibility

Without a doubt, the most important post of the week is 7 Things Every Designer Needs to Know about Accessibility. Written by Jesse Hausler of the UX team at Salesforce, this post does an impressive job of correcting misunderstandings around making digital interfaces "accessible" and gives straight-forward, easy-to-guidelines for building interfaces that do what they're suppose to, but also unblock visitors who may or may not have personal or technological limitations. Best said by Jesse himself, "On the surface it may seem that placing these limits on your use of components, hover states, and visual design limit your creativity. If anything, these guidelines will push the limits of your creativity as you find visually pleasing designs that enable the success of a wider set of users."
