i do the same; 4 char states - with box around them

(setq org-todo-keyword-faces
      '(("TODO" . (:foreground "pink"
                               :box (:line-width 1 :style none)))
        ("NEXT" . (:foreground "green"
                               :box (:line-width 1 :style none)))
        ("WAIT" . (:foreground "yellow"
                               :box (:line-width 1 :style none)))
        ("HOLD" . (:foreground "light blue"
                               :box (:line-width 1 :style none)))
        ("CNC!" . (:foreground "gray"
                               :box (:line-width 1 :style none)))
        ("DONE" . (:box (:line-width 1 :style none)))))
