Styling for accessibility
In addition to improving the searching experience, a bit of visual refinement was well within the scope of this project. Feedback from users indicated that the original green and beige colour palette was calming and attractive, but these shades largely fell short of accessibility standards.
With this in mind, I updated the palette, keeping the original colour theme as it was but adjusting the hue and tone values to eliminate the contrast issues previously exhibited. The updated colour theme keeps the same calming combination of green and beige but ensures elements such as buttons meet accessibility standards and pop effectively.
