【Welcome to ePBT Aesthetic】

Inspired by the vaporwave visual themes of Floral Shoppe and Arizona Green Tea.
ePBT Aesthetic seeks to bring out the beauty of these themes and colors.
Formerly introduced as GMK Cherry Blossom (and then KAT Aesthetic), I've sought to improve this set, and I'm very pleased with the result.
Whether you just enjoy the colors, or are a full weeb, there is a kit for you in ePBT Aesthetic.


GB thread is up!

【Group Buy Update and Feedback】

Unfortunately, I received notice last month from Keyreative that KAT Aesthetic would be indefinitely on hold while they improve their tooling.
In order to continue with the group buy in the best way possible, we have moved to ePBT. Group Buy will go from March 8th to April 8th!

I realize this feels like short notice and possibly like 'too late for feedback', but in the year and a half that this IC has existed there has been a ton of feedback taken and improvements made.
I'm confident we have a product that people will love here. That being said, I've created a form to take any last-minute issues with the set into account before Group Buy starts.

Please fill out the final IC Form if you feel so inclined! https://forms.gle/VRnwvY8DVn6SpAu1A

Needs more white. Cherry blossom festival in DC always had tons of white. The color of the alphas doesn’t make sense to me. Love the color of the mods though

I think making the alphas white with green legends with look better, but that is just my thought. But I still do think it looks v nice.

I agree with everyone else, too much green for a cherry blossom themed set...

Like the design of the deskmat for the most part but I'm also not a big fan of the katakana on it.  Aesthetic?  But why?

I think the set might be better with the mods colours being the colour of alphas, the green colour of the alphas being the colour of the legends, and the colour of the mods being swapped with the white of the spacebars/novelties. If you're going the floral shoppe route.
That being said, the deskmat is great. I just don't really like the dark pink 7432c pantone

Unfortunately gonna have to be that guy...

The katakana you have for what I can only guess is meant to transliterate to "aesthetic" is incorrect. The correct way to write this in katakana would be "エステティック".

99c novelty cap for the Arizona Iced Tea can price?  What is the woman's head novelty cap for?  Agreeing with others that the green clashes with that pink.  Doesn't make me think about Cherry Blossoms at all.  Cherry blossom trees don't have any green leaves on them when in bloom--very dark off-black bark and pink flowers.  Olive green flower stems mostly obscured by the flowers.  I've photographed a lot of cherry blossoms over the years.

Actually エステティック comes from the French word "esthétique" and refers to beauty treatments.  It's not the same as "aesthetic".

the colors are arizona tea cans. novelties are bits of the three inspirations: the tea, some vaporwave genre music album, and cherry blossoms. Its mentioned in the original post, but i had to look up the album mentioned to find the genre. I believe the colors are a little more saturated than the actual cans but its likely done to help tie in the vaporwave aesthetic more. My bf hated the old school windows and apple keys, but that just part of the visual side of the vaporwave music. the woman is, im pretty sure, just supposed to be a head sculpture of a Japanese woman. sculptures are another vaporwave thing. Along with the palm tree and the retro sun. The use of random japanese is as well.

I really like the colors used on the Arizona Iced Tea can so I'm interested to see how this set ends up. A name change could help since it appears many people expect the colors to be based off of an actual physical cherry blossom rather than an abstract theme or feeling.

Hey y'all, I know it's been awhile but this set is still in the works! In hindsight I should have held off on opening this IC, as I got married just a month later. I will update the main post once I have renders, but here's what's in the works:

* Moving to KAT! I wanted to offer some very cool kits that, of course, are limited by GMK kitting. KAT and its MOQ system will allow for a lot more flexibility and creativity
* Name has been changed! One of the most common pieces of feedback I received, regardless of how people felt about the colors, is that the name didn't accurately reflect the expectations for the colors. GMK Cherry Blossom is now KAT Aesthetic.
* Papithered is helping me out with some custom icon mods! Those will go up with or slightly after the updated renders.
* I have fine-tuned and modified some of the colors. I have the pantone chips and think it'll look great.

Apologies for the delay on this, I will be pushing to have a huge update by the end of the month!

A few points of feedback:

Minibars kit:
 
  • You can safely drop the 2x 1u green spacebars because they are already offered in the ortho/40s kit and there are not any larger layouts which utilize 2x 1u spacebars
  • Because you already offer them in green in the 40s/Ortho kit, I recommend dropping the white and pink 2x 1u spacebars. This frees up 6u of space in the minibars kits. I doubt anyone picking up the 40s/Ortho kit will also pick up minibars just for different colored 1u spacebars.
  • In my opinion, you can drop all of the 1.25u spacebars from the minibars kit as you have plenty of 1.25u mod options which can be utilized instead. 

40s/Ortho kit:
  • There appears to be two R2 1.5u "Enter" keys offered. You only need one.
  • 40s layouts which utilize a 1.75u spacebar use two and not one (JD40/45). However, since you offer the R1 1.75u lock key (for Minivan), it is not strictly necessary to add a second 1.75u spacebar as this key could be used as a spacebar.

Novelties:
  • I really like these. Well done!
