Love the colors, kitting is nice as long as the price is reasonable.

However I do have one major concern - the set is called Retro, however you decided to use the new Cherry Logo for the enter novelties in the Extension Kit. Any chance you could reconsider and use the OG logo to stay true to the theme?

Will be watching to see where this going, good work so far.

I'm not sure if Cherry allows you to use their old logo, but yeah I would love this as well

This is a great looking project. Thanks for adding UK-ISO and numpad subs (too many people can't grasp with the idea that numpads serve to do more than just input numbers).

Feedback:
 - Consider changing F13 key to mod colour.
 - Consider seeing if you can use OG cherry logo.
 - Would like to see AltGr, whether in base or in the extension kit.
 - I not convinced by the deskmat. Sure the colours fit, but it just comes across to me as branding for you without providing any depth of design outside of that. If you want a deskmat with your logo on it for yourself, sure get one, otherwise it doesn't offer any value to this project. IMO go without a deskmat, or do something related to the ruinic legends.
 - The extension kit infographic/renders gives the impression that the relegandables are sculpted with them being assigned multiple rows. I understand most people have the knowledge that GMK can only produce them in R1, but it's probably best to clearly label tham as R1 to avoid confusion for those who aren't in the know.

Best of luck.

I enjoyed the idea and colorway. Would you be willing to offer only R1 relegendables? I think most keyboards would benefit from R1 for the F-Row.

Also, there is an identity crisis in your renders. I think the TGR board you rendered has another name ;)

Edit: just read the note that the relegendables are actually R1

F13 has been changed.
I'm definitely going to ask GMK if I can use the old logo.
As for the deskmat, I made it one day for myself and when I showed some people, everyone loved it and wanted one too, if no one on GH likes it I'll remove it and happily make a new one.
I'll make the text underneath the extension kit render larger for everyone to see.

Thanks so much for the feedback.

CHANGES

I tried fixing compression issues.

I've updated the base kit render will be updating extension soon, spacebars is the only kit goof for now.
F13 Alpha --> Mod Colour
One 1.5u Pipe key Mod --> Alpha Colour

Please go and do the IC form if you dislike the deskmat. I may add the banner BG as a deskmat if people are interested.

Renders look awesome but kind of different from the real stock colors since I found that the core color of this set is basically 9009 with the use of U9, L9 and CR.

The fading effect applied is a bit too much?

The change of green from 3B to 3A and the addition of sub legends is welcome though.

Any chance there could be an alternative set of alphas for those of us (or just me) that want the retro end of the set and not so much the runic? I don't happen to own WoB or any retro GMK sets and I'd like to own this one. Just not into having sub legends on my keys.

If not, you know. It's cool. Thought I'd ask.

This. Please make the sublegends doubleshot.

Can't join a set with pad printing, especially on the alphas.

Not going to happen in this project. Keep an eye out for a set without sublegends soon enough though, I know at least one person working on it so its just a matter of time.

Alternatively, if OP sticks with pad printed sublegends, you can just get this set and rub off the pad printing to get rid of them.

I've had many people ask me to make DB Shot subs instead however I don't think I will. I'm a huge fan of the green and UV Printing has improved a lot. Look at GMK Griseann, their Printing came out very well and I'm optimistic for this set.

It's cool to see so many runic sets coming out but I'm curious how you decided on the rune for Q.
The ingwaz rune is genereally interpreted as the "ng" sound (as in in sing)... I'm not quite sure how that ended up on Q for which one usually uses the kaunan rune.

I followed Skok's layout for consistency's sake but I was aware of this, when I was researching a found that it's been theorised that ingwaz, a rune of unknown origins, was adopted from Q however there is some debate over that.
