Improve my UX!

There seems to be a trend at the moment for web pages with very light text*.

I wonder whether this is a response to the ‘dark themes’ that have been prevalent in recent years. Or maybe my beef with the ‘light text on light background’ is more to do with ageing eyes! Although this sort of theme results in a clean looking site, it does (I find) make it really difficult to find the information that you are looking for – especially if the text size is small.

One thing that I’ve learnt (in particular since becoming self-employed) is that the client is right. In this instance I am the client and therefore I am right 😀

Maybe this is just a trend and things will go back to my having a user experience (UX) where I am able to enjoy looking for information on the web. But for the time being, I’ll just have this grumble and continue squinting at the screen.

*Having started to write this blog post, I also realised that the Geoger website theme itself isn’t immune to this issue (in particular the links). But, y’know, what the heck 🙂
