🗃 3 Design Resources
📃 Article - Best Practices for Building Accessible Mobile Apps
Author: Daniel Devesa Derksen-Staats
Here's what I learned from reading this article:
An accessible mobile app is one that allows the user to customize their experience.
Accessibility issues should be treated like bugs and should be prioritized accordingly in the backlog.
Use a combination of sound, haptics, iconography, text, and colors so all users can perceive and understand your content.

🔨 Tailwind Play
Tailwind Play is a useful resource I recently came across for testing out Tailwind CSS code live in the browser.
Such a useful resource if you want to learn how to use Tailwind CSS or test out the designs of certain components.
🔨 A11Y Accessibility Checklist
Here is a comprehensive checklist you can run through to ensure your designs are accessible under WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines).
This is a helpful resource to bookmark for repeated use.
🎨 2 Design Tips
Include the number of results in search results
Include the number of results returned when a user performs a search.
This is helpful for the user as it provides them with more clarity about the search results.
If the result set is too large, they can refine their search to find exactly what they're looking for.
Including popular brands you've worked with builds credibility
Include well-known brands that use your product (Don't lie here).
This builds credibility and trust in your audience.
