[IC] Scenic Serenity Deskmat
« on: Thu, 24 June 2021, 02:27:59 »
Greetings Geekhack!
This is an interest check for the Scenic/Serenity Deskmat Series; a simple scenic backdrop to complement your keyboard (*name undecided)


Renders










Colourways
 
Note the number of variations might be reduced based on the feedback form and vendor discussions.
Prototypes will be produced, then after QC prototype approval, pre-orders will proceed.
 

 
Serenity



 
Zen

 

 
Borealis


 
Evergreen



 
Dusk



 
Dawn








Inspiration:
I hoped to capture the peacefulness that one feels when you gaze upon the beauty of nature.

Frankly, this style is quite common and often used as a wallpaper (Firewatch x /r/battlestations), however I wanted to do my own take, where the composition has the sky specifically covering the majority of canvas. I feel this would suit a keyboard desk setup more. Many other designs in this style tend to have a fair bit too much going on in the middle for my personal preference, thus I really wanted to strip it back and evoke that serenity. As such Iíve avoided adding further elements to the sky, to avoid distracting the keyboard being the main feature of the set-up. There's a beauty in simplicity.

Iíve been recently exploring Nordic themed keycap concepts (Mischief & Northern) and this came about whilst around playing with deskmat concepts.

If these arenít your style, then Iíd like to also plug other deskmats, such as:

Sol Deskmat
More
Umbra:

& Hypatia:


KAT Space Dust
i.e. Singularity, Aero-Sol, Vacuum:
More




And KAT Great Wave as well!
More





Also let me know if you vibe with some of the other concept colourway renders I've posted as a potential future keycap design project (obviously not the 9009)

Absolutely adore the Borealis colourway, hope it makes it to GB and that you have a UK proxy for it! :thumb:

I don't really get the appeal. There are thousands of deskmats  available online with very similar designs. But if people want it, give it to them I guess. GLIC

I really like that the keyboard doesnít obstruct the design. Overall very clean, and the colors are really nice. Will be looking out.
