[IC] GMK Power Chord | HIBI Collab 10/19/2021
« on: Wed, 20 January 2021, 05:50:07 »

Drive Us Crazy!

I would like to introduce everyone GMK Power Chord







About

This set was inspired by two of my interests, HKS and Raise A Suilen. HKS is a Japanese tuning company that focuses on producing aftermarket car parts that improve the performance of your car. Raise A Suilen is also from the series BanG Dream! If you know GMK Devoted, you already know. The color scheme is based on both HKS' and RAS' color schemes. The colors have been matched physically with a RAL book with official merch.


Inspirations


References and Colors Chosen




Colors: CR, RAL 180 60 50, RAL 300 50 40, RO2, MG1, WS1
The main colors are Green and Purple. The purple is lighter than GMK DY to improve readability.
The red is for the essential icons that show up on your car's dashboard. MG1 is for the pink stripes found in all HKS livery.



Kits

The kits are designed to fit most 60, 65, 70, 75, TKL, 96, 1800, Full-size keyboards in ANSI, tsangan/WKL, ISO, HHKB, Alice and more.
Fill out the IC form for more layout support!

Fill out the IC Form! If I were to add UK ISO, should I add it in the Base Kit or Latin Alphas or both?

Can you consider move the standard (esc, enter and arrows) keys from Boosted Novelties to base? I think it's better in term of kitting.

Sorry for the hiatus on this set, GMK Devoted and my life got way more busy than I ever anticipated.
I have contacted a community member that has made metal spacebars before but we are currently R&D'ing to see if it's feasible

Every collab for GMK Devoted has gone longer than expected but now I have time for this set! I've been relatively low key on this set since I felt that the initial post was a bit premature but I'm pretty satisfied with what I have planned.

Sidenote rice cooker was a really good meme whoever suggested that but it didn't make the final cut.

This is very clean for some pretty strange inspo. But it's kinda niche... are you sure two base kits will reach MOQ?

I've gotten many requests to make the Latin Kit the "main" kit (this was when it used to be a Latin add-on kit). I liked how they both looked but I realize that many people would rather buy one kit instead of being forced to get something extra so this is my compromise. I've even structured my kitting to fit basic 40s and Alice bars to get as many single kit buyers as possible.
