Keyboard stickers to help you design with speed and confidence

THE STORY BEHIND THE STICKERS
Days of confusion after switching from Adobe to Affinity led to an idea: fun and functional color-coded keyboard shortcuts for the Affinity Suite. My name is Julie and I am the creator of Arkeytekt.

I bring you lightheartedness and user-friendliness in the shape of colorful keys. Without spoiling the fun of typing — because after all, that's what keyboards are for.

I switched from Adobe in 2020. I’d heard about this inexpensive, fast and shiny alternative called Affinity. The workspace seemed familiar right away — except for that flashy toolbar. I felt like I was ready for a new chapter. How hard could switching tools be?
Affinity was as fast as they say — I, on the other hand, wasn’t. After making the switch, I spent way more time googling than creating. What could ease the transition and learning process? Yet another Google search. Keyboard shortcuts. Yes! With great anticipation, I was going to treat myself to color-coded keyboard shortcut stickers for Affinity Designer. Only to find out that they didn’t exist — yet.

Fast-forward a few months, and I tested different layouts, colors, materials, coatings and laminates for the stickers. Once finished, they turned out better than I expected. So why not share them with other creators and doers?

ABOUT ARKEYTEKT
The name Arkeytekt is a combination of the words ‘key’ and ‘arkitekt’ (Swedish for architect). I am an illustrator with a background in architecture living in Sweden. Serif’s apps have revolutionized my workflow and gave me incredibly smooth zooming, smaller file sizes and the confidence to work with both pixel and vector graphics.

Do the stickers fit my keyboard?

Arkeytekt decals are a perfect fit for any keyboard with a key size of at least 9/16"x9/16" or 14x14 mm, such as:

• Apple Numeric Magic Keyboard (2007-2016) (2016+)
• Apple Magic Keyboard (2016+)
• Apple Wireless Keyboard (2008-2015)
• MacBook Pro / MacBook Air

The size of your MacBook (e.g. 13 "or 15") does not matter.

Will the stickers work with a backlit keyboard?

The stickers will — but the backlight won't. The durable material and particular design of the decals stops the keyboard's backlight from passing through.
