    GMK DRACULA

    IN COLOR MATCHING PHASE

    We have unfortunate news that we dread to have to give. The round 5 modifier sample was not right. The sample was just as bad as the round 4 sample that we clearly stated was unacceptably wrong, but somehow round 5 was just as wrong. We submitted our thoughts on Tuesday for an unprecedented round 6 sample. Round 5 only took a little over 2 weeks to receive, so hopefully this one will be quick as well. 

    Below you can see a photo of the 5 rounds of samples in order. We are showing you this so you can understand how far off the round 4 and 5 samples were and how they were simply not acceptable to use in the final product. No matter how difficult the decision was. The photo is only the show the comparison between the modifier samples and not to perfectly represent how they look in real-life. Some of these samples may seem like they are right, but we are matching each color to be part of the overall palette and not independently. The relationship and contrast between the alphas and modifiers is very important, which is why we are going to such great lengths to get it right. 

    We submitted our thoughts and reiterated for a 3rd time now, the changes that needed to be made from the ROUND 3 sample. Round 3 was very close to being correct, but was just a little bit too dark. We provided in depth measurements and adjustments to do everything we could to help them make the changes, however, the samples following round 3 were incredibly over lightened to the point that they could possibly be mistaken for the alphas, which is forcing us to have to get another round.

    We are committed to getting these colors as perfect as we can to live up to the design that all of you expect to get.
