[IC] KBM Caramel | Novelties, Accents and Vendors added!
« on: Tue, 27 December 2022, 05:55:50 »


Its time to sweeten things up!





Inspiration

I think it is pretty straightforward. This set is inspired in caramel, but mainly to the liquid and viscous caramel we all have grown up with, and that is a "must" when eating pancakes or marshmallows. It seems to me that caramel has slowly become less popular within "sweet enthusiasts", which is tragic, taking into account the innumerable combinations that can be done with it. Therefore, the keysets goal is to reaffirm the role caramel has in the food industry, as well as to show the relevance sweet desserts have in my life.

Kitting


As I am Spanish, I do now firsthand how few Spanish-support keysets are. As a consequence, I have decided to include a south kit which supports Spanish (Spain and Latinoamrica), Italian and Portuguese. I am aware that this is not commonly done, probably due to MOQs, but KBMs child kit MOQs are just 50, which seems reasonable to me. Novelties were designed by Stellaidoscope














Deskmats


Both deskmats have been designed by Pig Modding. Check out his socials, it is truly amazing.



 I know what you may be thinking, caramel and a dragon? The truth is that in China one of the most typical desserts is a dragon made out of caramel, and I think it looks fire in a deskmat.

Vendors

I have decided to go with two EU vendors given the amount of international kits in the set (NorDeUK and South)

EU: Keygem
EU: Coffeekeys
NA: Otakeebs
UK: Proto[typist]
OCE: Allcaps
CA: DeskHero
ASIA: TBD
LATAM: TBD




Greetings

My family, who has always been really supportive.
Cylent, Nopun and Spiked Synapse for solving me questions all day long.
1pctipaday, Ale210 and Salva for helping me develop the idea and improve the kitting.
Keebaholics, Jack and OtaBen for making me believe in my set and not give up.

Looks great! Definitely a set I'll be keeping an eye on. Any plans for a novelties kit?

Hi. Thanks for the kind words. I have received several comments about the novelties. I am thinking of including some, but first I want to know if more people are interested in them. And be sure to fill in the IC Form. It is really important for me to know the communitys opinion about the set.

Is there any hope that Italian language support could also be included?

It depends on the amount of people interested, but it seems improbable
