Last night, Mark Jaquith introduced Twenty Thirteen to the WordPress Community. I really like the design direction Twenty Thirteen is going. Similar to how I’ve made colors more vibrant on my site and used them to differentiate Post Formats, Twenty Thirteen takes a similar approach. Check out the demo site to see it for yourself.

One of the parts of the announcement that I really liked was a call for some quality accessibility testing. I’m glad to see this getting discussion now, early in the process.

Accessibility is still important, even when making bold artistic statements, and I’d be surprised if we didn’t have work to do there.

In fact, we are already working on improving the color contrast..
