Task: Scan the website through WAVE which identifies some of the issues of the design, the layout or some other HTML components. Then, import it into Figma and fix the design.
I chose Cockrell and COLA homepage. Through WAVE, it notified that in some of the sections, the contrast is low. Therefore, I went ahead and added overlays to the images.
