HELLO EVERYONE!

I'm very excited to finally be able to present you something I've been working on for a long time now: GMK Fleuriste
The idea started with the first bloom of flowers in early spring and then blossomed into the theme you see now, a flower shop in Paris. Also, I really liked the colours.
ANYWAY! On to the main attraction...




Updates:



Hey everyone, been working on new deskmat designs for a while now to potentially replace some of the existing ones based on feedback. I went for something simple, that follows the design language of the novelties and something that expands on the idea of a set themed around Paris. Featured landmarks from left to right: Les Invalides, Louvre, The Obelisk of Luxor, Arc de Triomphe, Notre-Dame and the Eiffel Tower. Hope you enjoy!

06/05/2021 Follow up changes to the deskmat designs, including a new colorway. Removal of the old Vert and Magenta deskmats.
07/12/2021 Files sent for quoting, kits finalised

Hey everyone!

This week's update brings you a significant rework of the kitting, QOL changes, additionally some simple deskmat designs. (leave feedback ty <3)

Base kit changes:
  • Complete overhaul, removal of numpad to keep costs in bay.
  • Added the much requested 2.00, 2.25 and 2.75U spacebar options
  • Removed 2.00u Shift
  • Added 1.50u Super keys and an extra 1u Alt key

*NEW* Numpad kit:
  • Initially wanted to provide as big of a coverage as possible (with the current colour options) with the base kit, but with the introduction of the new accent colours, this change had to be made to keep costs on the ground.
    I know this change might be a bummer for some, but I hope the newly introduced colour option makes up for it!

*NEW* Accent kit:
  • This kit includes a much requested feature, that being a better representation of the green in the set.
  • Additionally, this kit provides further options for split spacebar users and some of you that use 6.00U spacebars.

40s/Ortho kit:
  • Less accent options, but bigger coverage with the introduction of the R3 1.25U Commit, R3 1U Code and the R4 1U Send keys!
  • Removed R3 1U Tab key.
  • Added 2x1.75U Space keys to support JD40/45 variants.

Novelty kit:
  • Added green ISO and ANSI enter novelties.

New deskmat designs!
  • Added some simple mats! Leave your feedback on those! :)

I realise some of these changes might introduce some unwelcome changes, but I do believe this direction is highly beneficial for the set in the future, making it more colorful, while hopefully making purchases feel better.
It's entirely possible I missed something, or made some mistakes, please do point them out for me! Thank you for the feedback, take care!

Edit: in all seriousness, I wasn't in much of a position to push a GMK GB at the time I posted my IC, and I don't believe in flag-planting. However I do think my version is better, so I'd encourage you to consider using my colors instead of the ones you chose :p

Oh man :( I tried looking for ICs that are similar to my idea, and chose colours accordingly... I guess with how many sets are being deisgned nowadays it's hard not to choose colors similar to others. I do prefer mine tho, considering the amount of work I put in it :P

Please consider changing the R3 "#~" key to R3 "\|" key for a full basic ISO support. Also, iso enter novelties about a bouquet of lavender or orchid may be good since we're about to be in the season now and it matches the purple tone.

Thank you! I purposefully went for a more understated design that one could match with a good number of keyboard colors!

Please consider changing the R3 "#~" key to R3 "\|" key for a full basic ISO support. Also, iso enter novelties about a bouquet of lavender or orchid may be good since we're about to be in the season now and it matches the purple tone.

This was changed during the creation a number of times, but in the end I settled on this version because I thought it would be a good compromise for all users of different ISO variants. I appreciate your feedback, will consider changing it if there's enough demand, for sure!

Are those RAL chips AND GMK samples??

Well, not real ones but renders. I figured it would be a more interesting way to show off the colors I choose, and also compare the color of the renders I made (since I used the same lighting on everything) and the official colors from the RAL website.

personally this newer version is something I'd be much more interested in. Your version's color scheme is what I've become tired of seeing considering there are new ICs  being posted every day - pick a neutral color (white) then pick a modifier color, and then an accent color. it seems boring and uninspired. I think this new set is more unique and has character.

I love the green and purple you've selected, but I'd be a bit nervous jumping on this with 4 custom colours. Wouldn't it be possible to use some of the standard GMK whites to cover the cream alphas and white mods? Makes it easier to mix and match sets + less colour matching required pre-production.

Absolutely, I get your concern, I was a bit hesitant as well. See, the whole idea started with GMK whites and grew to be the version you see now.
In some of the earliest renders I made, the set used CP and WS1 (also tried others but none of them worked for me), which were a good match for the idea I had in mind at the time but felt extremely bland and like any other white/beige set.
I chose custom colours for the beiges, because I really do think it gives the set a lot more character.

While not the same alpha and mod color you see now, you get the idea:




Thank you everyone for the kind words!

Hey folks!

Based on recent feedback I've begun working and ideating on possible changes of the current kitting, which include minor (but important) and possibly bigger changes in the near future. Some of you noted you'd like to see the green playing a bigger part in the set.
This was a concious decision on my part as intrudicing more colors could bloat the kits or intruduce the need of too many child kits. Fear not, tho, your voice have been heard, these are the ideas I've been toying with:


Option no.1: Separating accents from the base kits. While the idea of more customization might sound exciting, I think in the case of this set, would create an unnecessary amount of child kits that would lead to the need of purchasing more unwanted keys.
(Keep in mind that this set works with 4 custom colors!)


Option no.2: I like this idea much more, as the removed keys (detailed further below) allow more space for other options regarding the base kit, while keeping the kit count the same, and prices very close.


Changes that are to come in the near future:
  • Changing the R3 "#~" key to R3 "\|" key
  • Removal of mod colored R2 "\|"
  • Removal of mod colored R1 "~`"
  • Addition of R3 "PgDn"
  • Addition of ISO Enter novelties are being worked on.

I would be delighted to hear your thoughts about these changes! :)

Thank you very much! :)

those colors have to be picked from barney.

The worst thing about what you just said is that I can't unsee it now. Keep in mind I actually have to work on this set, so the idea of flowers was much more calming.  :blank:
Anyway, thank you, I'm glad you like it :)

I like the new kitting much more, specifically Option 2 as it is pretty close to what I wrote in the IC form.
That said, I would still love to see a green ANSI Enter in base.

If I'm not mistaken, the legend in the green arrows would be the lighter white, right? Which means an extra color in the kit just for those little legends. Instead, personally I would prefer to see purple small bars over green arrows.

Maybe a green version of 4 of the 1u novelties as well? So you can have 2 in each row, filling an XT column.

I think this is where the idea of a set with multiple accents becomes problematic, especially for a new set that hasn't been colour matched yet, and not yet popular by the masses. I want to avoid having spacebar kits with huge costs because of the amount wasted keys you are being left with for the cost. I figured including the arrow keys this way would prove to be a good middle ground for everyone. Nothing is set in stone just yet...but currently I'm really gravitating towards the second option I proposed.

I think you can look at GMK Fundamentals final kitting for a third option when it comes to multiple accents (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=109361.0).
Also, imo, making novelties for enter both ansi and iso in all accents (Purple and Green) and remove the mod color ones would ne more eye-catching.

Hey folks! Big update coming right up!

General:
  • Colour tweaks
  • There has been some controversy sorrounding the colour chip renders, so that has been removed. While my intentions were absolutely not to fool people into believing those were real colour samples - it was supposed to be more of a fun way to show off colours on the renders, not to represent real colour samples - I can absolutely get how it could steer people into believing otherwise...I apologise for that!

Base kit changes:
  • Changed the R3 "#~" key to "\|"
  • Removed mod colored R2 "\|"
  • Removed mod colored R1 "~`" key
  • Added of R3 "PgDn" key
  • Added green "Esc" key

Novelty kit changes:
  • ISO Novelties! (enter--> entry :))
  • Changed the R1 flower basket novelties to none other than Paris' most famous landmark, the Eiffel tower.
  • Removed bonsai icon and replaced it with the flower basket in favor of the Eiffel tower novelty. I felt the bonsai icon didn't really match thematically as it's not something that's a common item in flower shops.
  • Added green R1 novelty option
  • QOL updates on some of the novelties, notably on the bicycle, wreath and hanging flower novelty to fit GMK's sizing restrictions more

Spacebar kit changes:
  • Added green arrow keys

And more importantly: Vendors!, Thanks to everyone who reached out to me and the ones I contacted myself for being such helpful and kind people!
Collaborations: Custom cables are in the works with the talented RocketCables!
This is pretty much it for the week, I hope you like the changes and the updates, please leave your feedback here or in the IC Thread

The mod color chosen is extremely close to the alpha one. It's gonna be a real problem in color matching. Have you tried using another color for mod ((lighter purple) or (lighter green) or (the same green from alpha legend) or (even using the same alpha color for mod color with purple legend))?

The mod color chosen is extremely close to the alpha one. It's gonna be a real problem in color matching. Have you tried using another color for mod ((lighter purple) or (lighter green) or (the same green from alpha legend) or (even using the same alpha color for mod color with purple legend))?

I did try both of your suggestions, but in the end this combination worked the best for me personally. I tried to keep the set pretty muted, so the vibrant green and purple were in the focus, not the creams. From what I've heard about the alpha color, it should be a bit darker in real life, but this I have yet to confirm myself as I don't currently have the RAL samples, sadly.

Yeah, I think having physical colors would be better before proceeding.

I personally think having alpha color 2. 2.25, and 2.75u keys in the spacebar kit would work better than them being accent colors (im thinking about this in terms of an alice layout). Alternatively I have seen other sets include these keys in the base kit, which could allow the current spacebar kit to be the same and have those keys removed from the ortho kit. I guess this would make the base kit a bit more expensive, but would allow those using an alice layout to not have to buy an ortho kit for three keys.

IMO mods being lighter than alphas looks strange


While not the same alpha and mod color you see now, you get the idea:

From what I've heard about the alpha color, it should be a bit darker in real life, but this I have yet to confirm myself as I don't currently have the RAL samples, sadly.
Yeah, I think having physical colors would be better before proceeding.
Absolutely, this is only week one after all :)

I personally think having alpha color 2. 2.25, and 2.75u keys in the spacebar kit would work better than them being accent colors (im thinking about this in terms of an alice layout). Alternatively I have seen other sets include these keys in the base kit, which could allow the current spacebar kit to be the same and have those keys removed from the ortho kit. I guess this would make the base kit a bit more expensive, but would allow those using an alice layout to not have to buy an ortho kit for three keys.
Yes, this option has been taken into consideration and is for sure a possible change in the future, tho it depends on a number of factors, a huge one being interest in the 40% kit. I wanted to avoid bloating the kits and as the base kit already includes partial support for Alice style layouts (with the included B, and modifier keys), I hoped this kitting might be a silver lining for both camps. Thank you for your feedback, I will definitely keep it in mind should the need for kit changes come in the future!

Thanks, glad you like it! :]

Haha, well, certainly a weird layout, I agree. ;D Most likely I made an oopsie in the core kit and then proceeded to work with that for everything else...Damn.
Edit: Behold the power of Photoshop! Thanks for the heads up!
