[IC]Violetta ≥70%

(1/12) > >>


This is SoSo – it’s been a while!
When I first designed this board, I only wanted to create a model to render keycaps on. What I did not expect, when I published the renders, was the community’s interest in this board. Thanks to this, and thanks to the support of my Discord and QQ groups, I now decide to turn this into reality.
Without further ado, I introduce my first board – Violetta.

Design Philosophy
Violetta’s layout is reached by deducting keys from the typical 80% layout. Compared to conventional FRL 70%s,Violetta specifically splits out row 1, retaining the distinct F-row layout, in order to achieve visual balance.

Violetta is designed with recognizability from all angles in mind. It should be easily distinguishable and recognized, even from side view.

The board employs a symmetrical cable design, so that users can assemble the board according to their own preference. In order to provide room for the complex weight design, the USB-C port is placed at the side of the board.

Violetta’s front decorative strip, which includes an LED strip, incorporates the same design expression as its side.

Very interesting layout, and I love the aesthetic. Can't wait to hear a proto sound test, GLIC!
