Like many of you, I’m a big fan of the Diablo games and I’ve long been awaiting
the Sanctuary rebirth keycap set. As I’ve been playing some Diablo recently, I
realized that while red and black make sense as a color palette, there are
other colors from the game that are actually more nostalgic to me personally,
such as the off-gold beige of unique items, and the blood red of the pentagrams
when navigating the menus.
So, I threw together a few concepts for fun using colors similar to the ones
used for the items and menus in D2. (Don’t mind the layout; I just re-used some
code I wrote when designing one of my own keyboards so I could render an SVG
with the exocet font)
Using the unique item color on a slate grey, similar to what you’d see when
hovering over a unique item:
Using the common item color on a slate grey but with some accents on the
The unique item color on blood red; these colors are pretty similar to the GMK
Samurai set but it’s neat to see it with the exocet font:
This one in particular is cool because being a darker font on lighter
background, it would lend itself well to dye-sublimation:
Personally I’d kill for an EnjoyPBT set like that.
Anyways, I’m not super creative so I’m sure there are better sets you could
make out of this palette but I thought it might be fun to explore colorways
other than red/black.
As a brief disclaimer, I have no intentions of competing with the Sanctuary GB,
this was just for fun!
