A friend of mine asked me to validate the color scheme of his revamped website. The color was chosen by (non-technical) top management and it doesn't follow a modern color scheme.

Is there any way to get insights into user perception objectively? How to approach that in the user testing sessions?


Simply ask a handful of users what they think.

Try to focus on the same demographic as the people that your app is targeted towards.

Ask them about contrast, mood, readability and style.

For testing accessibility use the color contrast checker. It will give you a good arguing point against the boss's color choice if it fails the accessibility tests.
