Hello everyone, welcome to the IC for GMK Fuji.

GB March 15th - April 15th



Inspired by the colours and landscape surrounding the legendary mountain, this set brings a stylish look to your keyboard. The set features dark blue Latin and Katakana legends on white alphas, with lighter blue-grey mods. The pink of the accents resemble the iconic sakura. All colours come from the RAL design catalogue.

Special thanks to BK over the past months for helping me develop this idea.

Without further ado, here are the kits - all renders done by the talented pikku-allu.

Katakana Base:

Pretty straightforward. Provides the compatibility you need for most layouts, while keeping it as trimmed down as possible. Katakana sublegends are there as an homage to the inspiration of the set.



Latin Base:

Pretty straightforward. Provides the compatibility you need for most layouts, while keeping it as trimmed down as possible. For those that prefer a cleaner, sublegendless look.



Addition:

To cover TGR Alice-like layouts and some more niche layouts that weren't in the base kit, as well as giving more legend options. Basic 40s compatibility also included.



Novelties:

Made in collaboration with Sour, to add a bit more personality to your board.



International:

Your standard kit for European layouts - support for British, Finnish, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and German keyboards.



Sakura:

Accent spacebars, for an extra splash of colour.



Collaborations:

RAMA WORKS x GMK Fuji

Anodised aluminium with enamel infill. All colours will be matched to the approved GMK samples. Both icons designed by my talented friend Sour.

Mount:





Pagoda:





With this set I have again collaborated with the talented Sour for deskmats. I hope you like them all as much as I do:

Landscape:



Paper:



Sakura:



Weave:



And last but not least, some board renders:

TGR Jane V2 CE:





Finder Works Hyphen:







Cannon Keys Satisfaction 75:







Colours:

Comparison between similar sets, with BoW and WoB for reference. Exact RAL values for GMK Fuji to be released at a later date.

Much love to Sour and pikku-allu especially for all your hard work - you two have truly gone above and beyond to make this project what it is. Also ilikerustoo for the early support and all the feedback.

Also many thanks to biip for giving permission to use his katakana moulds for this project.

I’m in. Some suggestions:

Move R3 pg up and R4 pg down into base kit.
Coloured arrows may work better in the spacebar kit than the novelties kit.

I think that with icons it's not overly necessary. Should this be text, or text+icon - 100% I'd have it in there.

Excited for this, didn't expect the GB to be so soon after the annoucement.

It looks very pretty but I would have never guessed it's based on Mt.Fuji (or it's surrounding landscape) when I look at this set.
Not really sure where the grey comes from.

Being a Fuji set I would have expected to see Mt.Fuji somewhere on a novelty at the very least (Maybe that's where the Rama will come in).

I really like the set, and the deskmats are especially gorgeous.
But I expect more from the Novelties like: Pink Novelty ESC, Pink Spacebar with Mt.Fuji design for example and maybe some stylized Pink arrows instead of just Pink arrows.

Super nice set  :cool: Would love text+icon mods and Katakana mono in the first kit. If the latter isn't possible I'll go for Latin.

Edit: just saw the accent F5-F8 that is amazing, well done

Awesome set... knocked it out of the park Ttom.  Love the colors.  I do agree w/ the previous poster that having a pink novelty esc would be really nice!  Also having a few extra keys in the addition set would be great to fill out some 40% keyboards (1.75 backspace, 1.50 enter)

Also would love to see some more renders... maybe on an isla?

Love the look and Latin base set. It looks like you've gone for Apple/Mac OS ISO layout in the base? I've never seen this before, I think something less specific would be better.

Got some more renders coming up - will be on a Finder Works Hyphen.

Love the look and Latin base set. It looks like you've gone for Apple/Mac OS ISO layout in the base? I've never seen this before, I think something less specific would be better.

This was something I thought a lot about in the kitting process. It's the most complete ISO layout I can make with 3 keycaps (that extra R1 keycap I'd include in katakana anyway with a different ISO setup, to mitigate duplicate legends). As long as you're not doing full UK ISO in base you're compromising with the support you do, and I prefer this setup much more to something like R4 >< and R3 |\. Besides, the International kit is there for a reason.

Being a Fuji set I would have expected to see Mt.Fuji somewhere on a novelty at the very least (Maybe that's where the Rama will come in).

This is the plan for the RAMA R1 keycap.

Though this confuses me:
The set features dark blue Latin and Katakana legends on white alphas, with lighter blue mods.

I see grey, is it my ****ty screen or???

Looks great, I would like to see an mod colored pipe key though.

But as @atlanticise I also see the mods as grey, it wasn't until I saw hes comment until I realized they are supposed to be blue?

That R4 `~ key (in both kits) looks really out of place. It's as if the ghoXTs of the paXT were trying to pull a faXT one on us... but were misled by A Particularly Poor Layout Entrée into doing evil things.
