This will definitely be an instabuy after earth tones, its not even halfway through 2021 but I'm already broke because of the upcoming keycaps from you. Baybayin kit would be a nice addition and some artisan keycaps as well. I hope there would be an artisan keycap representing the metal bin they use to store the soy.

You should look into making designs for switches as well. The colors you choose for the caps would look nice on switches as well.  Good luck kabayan!

Thank you so much for you feedback, Kabayan! I'm currently working on the Baybayin kit as well. Maraming salamat po, Kabayan!!  ;D
I think you should put baybayin in the base kit and pray for MOQ to be reached  :p

Hahaha! I'll start praying right now! Thank you sooo much!  ;)

I know it wasn't the direct influence on the design of the set, but it would've been great if the novelty enter could say "BOBAAAA!" lol

Relax Zionsped, you're running 3 ICs at the same time. About the set, any chances that TAHO equipement enter novelty available also in black, your novelties kit reminds me of my childhood....

Hello again, brother! Haha. GMK has a bunch of awesome keycap designs and for me, it's very hard to conceptualize on colors so I really have to dibs a colorway asap :( Awwww, Thank you soooo much! Also, updated the novelty render!

Some of your novelties are very detailed and Iím pretty sure GMK canít produce some of the thin lines and the very small gaps, so Iíd take a look at that.

You canít own colors, so posting ic's just to ďcall dibsĒ on a colorway seems a bit selfish imo, not letting the other designers run their idea/concept just because another designer posted an ic of a set thatís not gonna happen in +1 year, just my opinion.
You also broke the rule #1 of the Keycap Designes Discord heh (Donít credit the server but the people that helped you from the server)

One more thing, this is basically GMK Bread  :thumb:


The guy posted 3 ICs i don't get what why you are so offended. :rolleyes:  you're making it seem like he's a bad guy. for what ? 3 ICs all original designs ? there are no set rules on designers trying to create GMK sets if there is then show them to the designer

I could care less about the 3 icís, idk where I sounded offended but ok bud. Just the way he made it seem like he wants to dibs on colorways just so that other designers canít run a similar set. Ig Iíll post 10 ics later and call dibs on 10 different colorways.

Go ahead no one is stopping you from doing that. well, the way you are pointing out flaws on minute details about how the designer's IC
 you sound like you've been drinkin a lot of haterade   :rolleyes:

The only flaws I pointed out were the novelties, and Iím sure Iím not the only one that thinks they need some work, Iím not sure where I said this ic was low effort, and if I did please point it out

uhh... you pointed out that "this is basically GMK Bread" what was that for ?  and I never said that this set was perfect and did not need any re-work, It's his first day of IC though so...  :confused:

Wdym what was that for, I pointed out my opinion of the set and the similarity with GMK Bread, no hate on the set or the designer, I never said that you thought this ic was perfect so please stop putting words in my mouth.

 :confused: :confused: :confused: are we going from "basically" to "similar" ??? you're making yourself look bad my guy  :thumb: anyway. you do you I'm sure you are a great designer basing on others trying to point it out. but as a person ? hmmmm  :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Hey, I think it's time wrap this thing up.

To sGhost & Dandruff, Thank you so much for the creative critiques! I'm actually jotting down notes on everything you all said that could improve my keyset. I won't push my GMK Benjamins due to color issue and the color usage of the currency as well. Thank you for the heads up on this. I really do appreciate it!

To break, Yes I agree! sGhost have a really good eye on every kitting details. Thank you so much!

To nvh2092, Thank you so much for appreciating my artworks! Also, this is really how I translate my artworks in keycaps as my design language and as a photographer too. I'm not an expert on kitting this is why I seek feedbacks on my kitting. Thank you so much again, brother!

To RUN_GMSEE, thank you so much for trusting me and my designs since Day 1!

I know and I'm aware I used the term "dibs" because of these:

- I posted GMK Taho on a local Facebook group here in the Philippines last March 3, 2021at 5:36 PM (GMT+8) as a floating concept of mine and to gather feedback/s as well, and the post blew up! (I took this screenshot last March 4, 2021 8:00 PM (GMT+8))

- A non local group on Facebook that clones GMK sets saw my concept of the GMK Taho and they already have a copy of the image I posted even tho it's just a plain basekit render. (I didn't even added RAL/PANTONE or any color codes on my facebook group post, just a straight base kit and board render.) This is also sad that people are also requesting to clone the set that they want to :(

- A bunch of people sliding through my dms on Facebook, Discord, and Instagram with a screenshot on what's happening to the said Facebook group telling me "Hey, your design might be cloned soon!". This made me alarmed AF, because I know they can produce the cloned keycap as soon as they want to. This made me think if I should post an IC on Geekhack so people would know who's the original designer behind the cloned keycap if it rolled out on the mech market. This alarmed me much that if they produced the keycap I designed before I put GMK Taho on IC, that could lead and letting people assume that my design is not original and based on the said company.

I hope this explain a lot and I want to let you all know that there are bunch of companies who copy/clone GMK sets privately.

Thank you sooo much!


I dont have anything to input for this particular IC but you could at least please blur the names of that Facebook screenshot which you shared. Thank you!

I mean it does look the same. Never saw anything wrong with what sGhost said. The gap between the mod colors are just 7, by the way. RAL 8001 and RAL 8008. Taho's alphas colors are just lighter as well.

The funny thing about that thread is that you're looking a little bit triggered and defensive about the whole ordeal.  :)) You sure you're just someone who's interested in the set, bud?

Its not a big deal that someone runs 3 ICs at the same time. Its that rushing ICs, with none being set in motion just yet, feels a bit reckless to me as a consumer. Just like how someone on this thread has pointed out some issues that if rushed, could lead to errors and affect not only consumers but vendors as well :(

I don't agree with the calling in dibs for colorways. I would prefer an interest check that's fully fleshed out, and looked into by someone who isn't juggling multiple ICs at once.

Are you implying that I can't comment if I am not involved in the design ?

I'm pointing out that sGhost has worked on a number of sets, has a great eye for detail, and is worth listening to as a result of these facts.

I'm also confused by your defensiveness in response to his feedback, which is well-intentioned and constructive, and can help the set's success. If you were invested in the success of GMK Taho, you would want someone like him to share feedback and help improve the resulting product. But instead you're pushing back on it. I'm not sure why, so I questioned your relationship here.

After seeing more comments here, I seem to be justified - you're not contributing much to this IC beyond argumentativeness.

The gap between the mod colors are just 7, by the way. RAL 8001 and RAL 8008. Taho's alphas colors are just lighter as well.

For others following along, RAL's classic colors do not work the same way as RAL's design colors. The first digit of a K7 color do indicate a system code (eg. "8" is brown) but the last three numbers are simply sequential. Compare RAL 1011 for RAL 1013 for an example of two closely-numbered colors that differ significantly.

This differs from RAL D2, where the first triple indicates hue, and the last pair of doubles indicates chroma.

Love the tones on this. I'm actually hoping this would go on GB soon ;)

I also agree with the others - the feedback is very valuable to make this kit successful.
