Neapolitan offers two distinct configurations with its colorway.
la mode, meaning fashionable, is a diagonal pattern that is reminiscent of classic Neapolitan ice cream.
Meanwhile, sundae reworks the colorway into a more typical keycap configuration, assigning vanilla to all of the alpha keys.

Questions & Concerns Addressed

More
❀ Why aren't your legends center-aligned?
✿ Because I do not like center-aligned legends.

❀ Why does your shift look like control?
✿ When I decided to take on this project, I decided very early on that I would be providing custom legends.
This includes icons. My goal was to establish a design language that remained cohesive, made sense, and
reflected my own self. These were my results. At the end of the day, they look nice and functionally remain the same.

❀ Why didn't you provide text mod support for 40s?
✿ There are only so many kits that I can include with this set. As much as I would love to offer every kit possible,
that is just infeasible. Throughout this project, I have received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback
regarding my custom icons. As a result, I decided to offer icon mods over other options (blanks/text).
I apologize to those of you who are unhappy with this decision.

❀ Why doesn't the QAZ kit support ' la mode'?
✿ I have found that the 1.25u P makes the ' la mode' design look really ugly with a 6.25u Spacebar.
No matter how many solutions I tried, the overall design would have weird seams and/or
unbalanced flavors. While the diagonal pattern looks good with the split spacebars, I do not
think this justifies including an additional ≥9 keys to an already great looking kit.

❀Can you make a kit without Strawberry/Vanilla/Chocolate? I only like the other flavors!!!
✿ No, that's not Neapolitan.
