In my attempt to invite people of different abilities and skill sets, I have created an experience which is easy for people of all abilities and ages to use. The stark contrast between the text and the background is meant to improve readability, while the color palette has been chosen to highlight important interactions in the app, while trying not to distract the user from paying attention to what's there on the screen.
Additionally, the process of adding an idea has been broken down into 3 distinct steps to enable a more predictable and organized experience for new and familiar users alike.
Finally, I have taken care of usability by doing away with complicated menus like the hamburger which everyone may not be able to understand and make use of. Removing such elements helps foster universal design which people of all abilities and age groups can engage with and have their voice heard.
