'Pitching in' Field Instructions - Readability & Contrast

In future seasons, the Field Instructions need sufficient contrast for both printed & online. There’s probably a lot of strategies, but two options would be to

  • Adjust the colors in the instructions to achieve an appropriate contrast ratio. Check the colors against something like this: WebAIM: Contrast Checker
  • Increase the scale of the image, don’t squeeze them tightly on the instructions like this year.

I wasn’t able to complete the build without using the Online PDF. Even that was challenging, I had to adjust the scale of the document and the brightness of the screen.

The Dark Blue didn’t appropriately contrast against black outlines for overlapping pieces. Adjusting to a lighter blue in the instructions would have been a big help. You can keep the actual pieces at the darker blue, but have the instructions use a more accommodating variation.
