[GB] GMK Seafarer | Number In!
« on: Thu, 15 April 2021, 10:08:09 »
GMK Seafarer

"Master of the seven seas"

This is the GB post for GMK Seafarer, I hope you enjoy your stay.
GMK Seafarer was originally inspired by our Navy sailors on the high seas, but has transitioned to a broader theme of sailing and nautical adventure.
Here is the IC post for more renders/details: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=110169.0

GB Period: April 16 - May 16 (Some vendors will be at earlier times than others. The US launch time will be 3pm EST)

Vendors

US - Mechs&Co
CAN - AshKeebs
EU - MyKeyboard.eu
OCE - DailyClack
SEA - iLumkb
CN - KBDFans

Pricing




Kits

Renders

DISCLAIMER: Renders do NOT show the final product and how the colors will look in real life. I have attempted to match the renders as closely as possible to the color samples I have, and I will be color matching to the physical sample, and not the renders. Please understand that my monitor is not the same as yours, and differences in lighting and texture also play a role. Colors may seem different in the renders in relation to each other, but this is intentional as it is meant to mimic different lighting conditions.

Boards (left to right, top to bottom): F1-8x by Geon Works, Adelie by Abec13, Iron165 by S+R, Cypher by westfoxtrot, J-02 by Prototypist







Deskmats

Deskmats were made with the same theme and overall minimalistic look as the set. I didn't want the deskmat to be the main star of the show, just a decoration on the side that is both functional and pleasing to look at.

Anchored


Mapped




Cable

Custom Cable by SpaceHoldings

THOK x GMK Seafarer

the Thock is R1 GMK right? Between that and no 3u spacebars, I think I'm about to save a whole bunch of money by wanting this set for a couple of specific 40's boards.

Curious about the rusty Thok. What material is it? Is the discoloration oxidation or some other process ?

@iinko_mk: it looks like the second flag (alpha) on the Enter key in novelties set is not oriented correctly. the points of the swallowtail should be oriented to the right, not downward, so that it reads: N A V Y

So it was meant to be as if it was vertical, but since enter is long key, and not tall, it had to be rotated

thanks, i understand the aesthetic. the design is sharp so i'll have to think about it. (also: although the flags may be produced as rectangles they are, more often, square. so there's that.)

The is was also made to fit the enter key itself. Squares were just a little too blocky. But thanks for pointing it out!

thanks for taking the time to explain. this is definitely more me than you, from having spent too much time on the water. either way, the colors and the kitting are really compelling, and the aesthetic is *chef's kiss*
