Description (last modified by afercia)

Via https://github.com/WordPress/gutenberg/pull/8588, Gutenberg comes with some new design patterns for input fields, focus styles, checkboxes and others. These are coalescing and come with some welcome accessibility improvements, including to contrast, as a result of refinement by the community over the past year.

As Gutenberg is just an editor and part of WordPress, we should consider rolling out those improvements to the rest of the admin interface. See attached GIFs for integration examples.
