GMK Modern Arch | Looking for Feedback
« on: Fri, 23 October 2020, 13:56:31 »
I've been designing this set over the past week with help from people in the KCDesigners discord, I've color-matched, need to work a little bit more on kitting, and have novelties and the deskmat still needing to be designed, what are your guys' thoughts on how it is right now?

This looks very similar to GMK Apollo, so I would maybe change that a little.

What is your inspiration for these colors?

Inspiration Came from Arch Linux, with deviations from it's color scheme to modernize the look, and I'm happy you called out the Apollo Similarities, no one on the discord had mentioned that, what do you think I could change to make it stand out?

with 80 concurrent GMK buys, you're bound to get a few Dolch knockoffs. such is the state of keyboards in 2020.

I'd be interested if everything were the same color as the mods. I feel like that is more on point with Arch giving it a more minimalist feel.

That Arch green on grey/navy blue is a good look.

I think someone else wanted the same, if the popularitys high enough I'd think about either making it a secondary alpha set or similar,

My only other suggestion would be including 1.5u novelties in the base kit for us WKL TKL people which is quite a popular layout, if not the most popular layout.
