‘Tis the season of red and green, which is wonderful for those of us who are able to discern these traditional holiday colors… sadly though, approximately 10% of males and 1% of females who suffer from “colorblindness” don’t share our joy in seeing these colors.
This of course also means that these folks cannot distinguish the differences in reports where “poor” results are color coded in red and “good” results as green. Therefore, to ensure that our fellow colorblind colleagues are able to see these important differences remember to avoid using a combination of red and green in the same display.
And for several alternatives to red and green check out my newsletter “Red, Yellow, Green is SO Last Year” and pass it forward if your colleagues say they “like” all that non-data ink… hopefully they will reconsider.
Happy, Happy & Joy, Joy to the world!! Here is wishing you a wonderful holiday.
