According to the guidelines, 26% opacity is meant for hint text and disabled text. More prominent labels should be 87% black or 54% black depending on whether they are considered primary or secondary text. In the guideline you quoted: Text hints for users, like those in text fields and labels, have an even lower visual prominence and should have an ...

It sounds like you might be talking about a series of colours that have the same chroma but different value. See my Fig. 1.2.7 on this page: http://www.huevaluechroma.com/012.php

The traditional colour wheel, for all its faults, is right about the fact that colourant-mixing complementaries differ from additive complementaries near the yellow-blue axis. RGB "blue" and RGB "yellow" are additive complementaries, and in subtractive mixing of IDEAL colourants (reflecting wavelengths in an all-or-nothing fashion) would also be ...

It's hard to have the perfect color and contrast since the background has almost every color possible! But you can add some effects behind your text to light it up or to make it darker, and play with the contrast this way. That lets you also some freedom to use another accent color... Eg. the color of the logo of the business that website is created for. ...

The logic symbol for "xor" is commonly.... You could use this symbol ..... Ultimately this is all a matter of opinion and preference though. Whatever works for you, works :) If it's all about clarity.. don't overthink it.... Or maybe.... There are really dozens of ways (if not hundreds) to visually represent this. I think this is just too broad ...

Where the context clearly prevents the icon being interpreted as "orange and blue" it must represent "orange or blue". As such, there is no need for the question mark at all in your case. Leaving out the question mark allows a possibility of more than two colours to be more easily shown — a question-mark may not make it easy to see the potential colours. ...

I was just thinking you could go with the opposite angle so as to prevent the "clash" between the diagonal line and question mark ending (top end). + also I've tried with non-zero thickness of the delimiting line. I'm an amateur.

Consider adjusting the colors so that a black or a white question mark will be visible on both of them, but keeping them the same at the borders. For example: You can still see the original colors on the borders, but the black question mark is now visible on the lightened interior (I just used the Brightness/Contrast tool in GIMP). (In hindsight, the ...

Agree with go-me's answer. Another approach could be a 'playing card' approach, and invert the questionmark both in colour and position, like thus:

I think you don't have many more options that make sense. It's logical to use the 2 colors in the box and the question mark makes the message clear too. But maybe you could play with the angle of your colors, and the font style too. On the first one, I simply changed the angle and it seems to interfere less with the question mark. It really changes the ...

I'm no way a professional, but when i'm dealing with an issue of this type (white isn't visible on the light color, black isn't visible on the dark color), i always do the same thing: i put the text in white, with a black border. You are sure the text will be visible on all colors. You could take you picture number 3, adding a black border to the question ...

I think a lot of designers have this issue. We find looking up inspiration and colour palettes to be the right answer. Also sometimes clients choose colours that we as designers know are not in the best interest of the brand or the design. There are times where we have to give our professional opinion on the matter. Remember you are the one who is designing ...
