Reference photos for key colors?
Hi, I'm working on an Italian semi-dolch layout and I'm struggling to pick colors for the keys. I think I've settled on the scheme below, but I'm not sure how well I'll be able to tell the colors apart. In this specific case I've used charcoal (mods), slate (alphanumeric), and graphite (in-betweeners). Would I be able to clearly see the difference? Also, what's the readability of white text on slate keys? I've seen some of WASD posts on instagram and the difference between these colors didn't seem marked but it could be some kind of color correction done by the camera used for the images.
So, in the end, would it be possible to have some photo references for keys and most common text colors?
(Bonus question: are you planning on adding more key colors? If yes, more shades of blue, please!)
Sorry for any confusion. We have a photo of all our key colors side by side here: https://www.wasdkeyboards.com/media/wysiwyg/tooltip_keycolors.jpg
Though it isn't a perfect example, there is an image on the following page with every key color with both black and white print, slate is the 5% key: https://support.wasdkeyboards.com/hc/en-us/articles/115008901088-Compatibility-with-backlighting
I hope that helps, please let us know if you have any other questions.
