[IC] Geekark TAHO | Deskmat Collab
« on: Fri, 05 March 2021, 04:08:36 »



Formerly GMK Taho. Now it comes with baybayin sublegends!



ABOUT




Taho is a Filipino sweet treat (originated in China) consisting of silken tofu, simple syrup, and tapioca pearls.
It is also known as "sweet tofu pudding" in most Southeast Asian countries.

"This staple comfort food is a signature sweet and taho peddlers can be found all over the country.
The Indonesian and Thai equivalent of this snack is Tauhue, and the Malaysian equivalent of this snack is called Taufufah."




Early in the morning or sometime in the late afternoon, youíll see a man wearing slippers, banig hat, and sometimes denim pants, yelling ďTAHO! TA-HO! TAHOOOOOOO!Ē
That is time to grab some money and run outside to catch the Taho vendor.



In some parts of the Philippines (mostly north) they do have flavored TAHO; Strawberry and "Ube". (Ube is a purple yam)



Taho vendors are most likely to walk around city-to-city carrying their taho equipment.
Nowadays, Taho vendors and other street food vendors are now very rare to be seen on the street due to quarantine. :(
Taho vendors are really the best example of Filipino resiliency, and this made me inspired to make this keyset.  :D

Love the concept. Not sure if I'm the biggest fan of the CR accent though, feels a little dark? Also, any plans for a baybayin kit to be added to this?

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:

I'm completely on board with the idea that people can have multiple ICs at once as long as the previous ones are fully fleshed out, but you're literally at like 1 IC per month now without a single set ever having been in GB.

-In this IC alone, your 40s kit could use a ruler and the enter legends look wrong.
-Your Alt Alphas kit is titled Latin Alphas.
-And why is your accent kit so unorganized?

For Earthtones and Benjamin, you decided that your kit with sublegends (Baybayin) would have an extra B, but none of your alt alphas have the extra B.
Also, there have been some streams that looked at your Benjamin set, and the colors you picked are completely off.

Some of these are small changes but it just shows that it was a bit rushed or not proofread.

And maybe this is just me... but posting a set to call "dibs" on color is terrible reasoning.

Thank you so much guys for the feedback!

Hello Brothers, I think I misinterpreted something. What I mean is I'm having a hard time choosing the best color way for my set because most of the active keysets already have the color ways I want. This is what also happened to my 2nd set GMK Benjamins. GMK Hunt and my set GMK Benjamins posted our IC on the same day and we almost had the same color way. People from discord told me to post my keyset as soon as I can so I will know which keyset has the same color with mine. I'm so sorry for the confusion. Thank you so much for raising me this!

There was no confusion. You literally just doubled down and said the only reason you posted benjamin was to call dibs on the colors before GMK Hunt could post.

Ohh, no brother. GMK Hunt and GMK Benjamins was posted at the same time :( GMK Hunt was the first one to post his IC and I posted GMK Benjamins with a couple of minutes interval. I really appreciate you all guys for correcting me! Thank you so much for that brothers. Before I post here on geekhack, I do seek feedbacks first on Keycap Designers discord server so I have udeas if I could run the set or not. If there's anything wrong, please I would love to know what should I do? Thank you so much!

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!

It seems that calling dibs on colourway is selfish but if you post an IC with very similar colours to earlier posted IC by someone else, people are just gonna comment other sets IC. People treat that IC as a copy. There is no win-win situation here

I'm not sure how you're involved here, or your standing to comment, but sGhost renders sets for a lot of designers (including myself for GMK Red Alert). Take a look at the last three GMK Red Alert renders posted to my Instagram to catch an idea of his attention to detail.

I trust him to have a good eye for missed details. zionsped would do well to listen to his advice.

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.
The way this community treats people with slightly similar colorway push designers to dib it so they don't have to deal with "Did you ask X, Y, Z for permission? , etc". Also, ZionSped surely put a lot of effort in ICs, just look at how he handle requests in GMK Earth tones. These are his original ideas and the designs are well made thought. Although there are still some kitting errors but that's why we have ICs for feedback. You're welcome to post 10 ICs to dibs 10 colorways but make sure your 10 ICs are well built (original designs, novelties, etc).

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.

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

I want to point out that Zion uses the same template for the novelties he did in GMK Earth tones. I did suggest him to follow some good templates for novelties found on Geekhack to improve the kit. I agree that this kit need to be better-organized along with a fews kitting errors that need fixing (no second b in Arnibal kit).

I'm not sure how you're involved here, or your standing to comment, but sGhost renders sets for a lot of designers (including myself for GMK Red Alert). Take a look at the last three GMK Red Alert renders posted to my Instagram to catch an idea of his attention to detail.

I trust him to have a good eye for missed details. zionsped would do well to listen to his advice.

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

No comment on the debacle with calling dibs or anything, but this is as much GMK bread as GMK Ursa and GMK Cafe are the 'same' (to be clear, I don't think they're the same)... totally doesn't make sense to me for someone to point this out. You get some shade of brown with some lighter shade of alphas. There are only so many combinations that people can pick colors that work well together, and it's no surprise that most are just different shades of the same hues - which is why it is all the more impressive when a set comes along that has unexpected, but pleasant combinations of colors. If we went by this logic, I'm sure it could be stretched to say that a very good number of keycap sets are just existing cap sets.

I also have concerns over matching color schemes with other cap sets, but going off of what Ustinj said, it makes sense. Here's hoping I can have my dessert and type with it too!  :thumb:

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 <url snipped> saw my concept of the GMK Taho and they already have a copy of the image <url snipped> 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!

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

Fantastic colors. As a recent fan of this color way, I'm in.

Thank you sooooo much!  :thumb:

would be good to have renders that show the full keyboard more or less straight on instead of at an angle, don't know why but only having angled renders kinda throws me off

Oh, good point! Noted on this one brother! I'll update my post after I do some of the renders.

Great colors, Iím in!

Thank you sooo much!  ;)

Thank you so much brother for the kitting advice! Really! Words can't explain how thankful I am man.  :)

I keep coming back to this post because it makes me nostalgic for all the Asian dessert cafťs I haven't been to in a year.

This made me nostalgic too! I have some flashbacks of my childhood while doing this keyset! :p

I give my filipino stamp of approval  :thumb:

Thank you so much, Kabayan! Mabuhay po kayo!

Actually not familiar with taho, but I see boba milk tea colorways and I am interested lol

I assume taho is an ancient "modern" milk tea! Lol. Thank you so much brother!
