[IC] ePBT Hellas | More board renders and udpated novelties
« on: Fri, 09 July 2021, 09:35:27 »


Introducing EPBT Hellas
A keycap set inspired by the city of Athens in Greece. I have been there multiple times, and it is my favorite city in the world.
Because of the beautiful ancient architecture, history and overall ambience of the city
Hellas=Greece btw


Updates
More
August 2nd 2021
Changed kitting:
Added a Latin only kit
Removed off-centered spacebars
Added another 2 3U spacebars
Changed 2nd pipe R3 to alpha color
Changed 2nd tilde to mod color
Removed extra Alt Gr
Removed m in international kit
Moved accent arrows to base


Changed colors:
I changed the mod pantone to 283U, this color matches closer to the renders.
283U is more saturated than 644U and comes a bit closer to that typical Greek blue you see, but is still closer to navy.
I have changed the image where I compare the pantones but kept the old color for comparison.
I have also updated the pictures of the pantone, the new ones are taken in different lighting for better representation of the colors.
The render color has not changed.


Deskmats:
Added new deskmat

vendors:
Added Stackskb as Indian vendor

August 11, 2021
Changed novelties:
Changed the sizing, thickness and fixed some minor issues
Changed the novelty line color on the blue novelties to alpha color
Replaced the accent colored novelties on row 4 for mod colored
Flipped the owl for symmetry for left and right
Moved the A -TH-E novelties up one
So A=Row1, TH=Row2, E=Row3
Moved the Olive Branch to Row 4


Added renders
(on the board renders it says "super" on the key, and on the kitting "code".
It is supposed to be "code".)
maybe i should not have said anything

Removed owl on deskmat and added another pattern at the bottom


August 22nd 2021
Changed kitting:
added 2u spacebar in 40s
added 1u spacebars and accented alice spacebars in spacebars kit


Changed renders:
Made the renders less bright and adjusted the accent color that matches closer to the pantone. Mind that everyone’s monitor still displays color differently.

Changed color:
Chose a lighter alpha color (656U)

August 25th 2021
Added more renders

September 12th 2021
Added more board renders
Changed novelties
Olive novelty changed
Made the A novelty more narrow
Extended base on statue
made owl slightly thicker on the feet
Put more space in the temple and extended it

Left: render by me on Ikkie68 by Wuquestudio. the statue is Laocoön and his sons.
Right: Gentlemen65 by jKeys design





Everyone’s monitor displays color differently, the colors in the renders are therefore an estimate.
Of course, blue is blue, but the brightness and saturation may not be completely accurate. But I have tried to make the colors as accurate as possible, but to some it might look slightly different due to their monitor.
I have included these pictures above with the color provided by pantone on their site(which is not accurate) and picture of the pantones in real life

R3 \| should be alpha colored not mod.

Might be cool to consider adding HHKB bottom row mods: 1.5U CODE x 2 + 1U ALT x 2

Not sure but your novelties might a be too close to the edge of the caps

The spacebar kit can be revised a bit. I wouldn't include the off-center bars, since so few people actually need them, and I would change the yellow 3u to white, so you can support layouts like the type k. Also, the base kit would look a lot cleaner if you moved the ISO enters off to the right side to free up a little space in that area. Overall, the colors are nice and simple, and the set is super clean. Good luck!

I tend to prefer more minimal looking alphas so I’d really like to see this too.

Love this set so far. Is there any chance you can make the 1.5u novelties both be that bright cream so that it can look more symmetrically balanced in my bottom row 7u layout (tsangan layout)? Or at least create a demo using the current novelties on a 7u bottom row layout.  Will keep a watch on this thread.

Nice work. Very tidy. Any chance you might be printing a set without the subscript? Regardless, hope you enjoy your break  :)

This colour combo looks sick, though I think the old duller blue looks better. Also, is there any chance of an alpha set without the greek letters?
