GB LIVE HERE!


Hello there!
We wanted to share a few concepts before our Brutalist keyset project launches in GB and also celebrate our upcoming vendorship status for the US region, but first let's face it, these are not exactly "minimalistic" as the misleading title suggest, however, they do share a sleek and austere aesthetic and monocolored or essential palette. We hope you guys will find these mats interesting and worthwhile!

Reserved.

May 17 : IC Form updated, google forms didn't like the wording or someone thought it was funny to report the form so we had to make a new one! Edit: IC Form gets banned everytime we make a new one for some reason. We appealed to google but the situation is kind of frustrating because we have no idea whats causing this issue. If anyone has an idea please contact us via our discord or write a comment on the thread! Thank you for the patience.

Pretty nice! Any chance of you offering Tether with a lighter background color/a background color different than black?

Really liking all of these, Gridwave most at the moment. With tether, I really enjoy the design but it feels like there is a lot of dead space between the mat edge and the design. Maybe it could be remedied with different color backgrounds as another commenter said but just wanted to point it out :)

Another potential solution could be to enlarge the design so that connecting lines come closer to the edge, creating somewhat of a frame around a center placed keyboard on the mat. Just a quick thought that came to mind though, I have not intention on walking on the designers toes and the design is very nice as is IMO.

Really appreciate the great insight and the feedback! Will potentially try out the enlarged frame version and also add a light color variant as soon as possible! Thank you!

Update: Google Forms should be live now. Although, if it's banned again, we're switching to another provider.

Fun designs. All of them look quite nice.

This bothers me though. It looks sloppy; you should relax the radius of the outer accent line so that they match:

Gridwave looks amazing, but the edges really throw off the look. Stretch the image to complete eliminate the dead space. I would personally prefer if the image basically just ran all the way out past the edges so that there is no dead space at all.

Thank you for the feedback! We have changed the design of Tether, so that the corner is not annoying.

Not sure if you noticed, but it's on the inside corner as well, might want to fix that  :thumb:

Thank you! We looked at this and decided to keep it this way, because it sort of mirrors the other side, but thank you for the feedback!
