[Article] Design Tip: Never Use Black

  
This article is about design, rather than usability, but I think it's worth a read:

One of the most important color tricks I’ve ever learned was to avoid using the color black in my work. Mrs. Zamula, my childhood art teacher, first warned me about black when I was in middle school. And I heard the same again multiple times at RISD. It sounds weird at first, but it’s good advice.
