To arbitrarily throw away contrast based on a fashion that “looks good on my perfect screen in my perfectly lit office” is abdicating designers’ responsibilities to the very people for whom they are designing.

This happens to me all the time when designing. I’m still surprised at times when I at first show a design on my phone. Sketch Mirror helps, but when your mind knows what is there it has a way of filling the gaps even when you see your design on a small screen with a little less contrast.

Hopefully a sketch plugin maker reads this and designs something that could scale through the different possible lighting/how contrast will appear situations. Until then you’ve inspired me to turn down the contrast on my monitor. I think I’m guilty of having it cranked up, maybe I’m not the only designer guilty of this and it is what is causing the real problem.
