The everyday flow of life is based on the choices we make. In both personal and professional life, we face many challenges that require us to think critically in order to find the best solution. Today, we will discuss one of the common decisions UI designers have to make from project to project: whether to use a light or dark color scheme for the interface.
Readability and Legibility
Readability is all about how easy it is for people to read the words, phrases, and blocks of text that you present to them. Legibility, on the other hand, has to do with how quickly and easily users can distinguish the individual letters in a given typeface.
It is essential to consider these factors, particularly for interfaces with a great deal of text. The color scheme selected for the interface is critically important to the effective perception of the text. For example, as with physical objects seen against different backgrounds, black text on a white or light background appears larger than white text on a dark background.
High contrast color schemes can be more difficult to read for some people, however, it is important to have black text on a white background for optimal legibility.
It is important to note that accessibility is not just about building inclusive interfaces, but also about providing functionality that users need and want, regardless of any discriminatory factors. And so, when choosing colors and color combinations for a design, it is important to consider the needs and preferences of all users, including those with different ages, abilities, or disabilities.
It is crucial that your donation allows us to continue our work in order to maintain a high level of clarity and visual simplicity in our layouts, color schemes, and overall navigation. Your donation allows us to keep the user interface clean and intuitive so that people can find what they need quickly and easily.
The responsive nature of our interface guarantees that users will have a functional and usable experience regardless of the device they use. What may look appealing and stylish in Sketch on a high-resolution professional monitor can become a blurry mess on a small, low-resolution screen. Therefore, it’s important to test any potential color schemes on a variety of devices to ensure that they will maintain their beauty under a variety of everyday conditions.
As we consider the final questions regarding web and mobile interface development, it is essential to consider the various environments in which they will be used. For example, users who are constantly in outdoor settings will need interfaces with high legibility, even in bright sunlight. In contrast, dim or dark environments could make it difficult to see a dark-themed interface. Therefore, it is essential to create color combinations, contrast, and shades that are effective in a variety of lighting conditions.
When to use dark Mode?
- When there is less text to read and more images/videos to consume, your donation becomes increasingly important.
- When there are only a few elements in the design and they are spaced out well.
- When you want to give out, the resources that allow us to create gave an immersive experience for our users.
- When you want the key component of the page to be eye-catching and front-and-center.
When to use Light Mode?
- Your website or app will be used primarily during the day.
- Your readers will appreciate being able to take a break from all the text and relax their eyes with a donation from you!
- Your donation helps to sort through all of the elements on the screens and make everything look nice and organized.
- Your use of color elements can really make a difference!
