The Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) has redesigned their resource website. They have included detailed tips on design called, Tips for Getting Started Designing for Web Accessibility.
They provide detailed examples on what complies with the WCAG guidelines:
Provide sufficient contrast between foreground and background
Don’t use color alone to convey information
Ensure that interactive elements are easy to identify
Provide clear and consistent navigation options
Ensure that form elements include clearly associated labels
Provide easily identifiable feedback
Use headings and spacing to group related content
Create designs for different viewport sizes
Include image and media alternatives in your design
Provide controls for content that starts automatically (in fact don't allow items to run automatically)
