Another otherwise good article on colors that completely ignores disabilities. People with autism perform poorly with bright color palates as do people with dyslexia. You can’t use red and green together because people with color blindness can’t see the difference. The key with color is making it flexible so people can choose the color combinations that best work for them. The future of universal design is personalization.
