[GB] GMK Rainy Day | GB over. Thank you everyone!
« on: Thu, 08 October 2020, 09:39:53 »




About the set |

For many of us, the rain has a strong influence on how we think and feel. Each person can feel something profoundly
different than the other; Relaxation, a clear mind, subtle sadness, dramatic nostalgia, or utter hopelessness. GMK Rainy Days
is a dedication to these feelings. I wanted to design a set that not only had a theme, but a strong and dramatic mood and atmosphere.

My inspiration for this set comes from two main sources. The rain, of course, and brutalist/oppressive architecture and the
dramatic role it plays in how we interpret and reflect. The stark presence of raw or bare material making up the world we live in.
From buildings to bridges to the streetlights that are always watching us. I have always felt like props stand out as monoliths when
we find ourselves engulfed by the cool overcast air, thinking about a memory, a loved one, or the uncertainty of the future.

Thank you for taking the time to read and review my work and I welcome all criticism you can offer.

Lovely set. How come the streetlight deskmat is not available on Candykeys, is this intentional (because I also see that it is on Kono whilst the concrete one is not) or are they going to be added to by the vendors at a later date or something to that effect?

Edit: never mind I'm dumb. Bought everything.

It is being offered here: https://candykeys.com/product/rainy-day-deskmat

The image is just wrong. I just reached out to them to get this fixed ASAP. Thank you for bringing this to my attention!

I also noticed that the "Concrete" deskmat is listed as "Haze" on Kono. They are fixing that now as well.

I bought this deskmat from Kono, do I need to reach out to them to correct my order?

Nope Kono's store is correct. All the of the listings are correct it was just a misplaced thumbnail on specifically the CandyKeys website.

Love the description and the inspiration behind the keycap set. I'm personally a big fan of brutalist architecture and the two tone gray with pastel blue color scheme looks amazing.

I caved and got the base, spacebars and deskmat. Wish there was a 1u shift but if there's ever a round 2 I would be all over a 40s kit.

I'm really excited to pair this with my copper patina-plated Protozoa P.01; I think the colors will play very well together!

Just wanted to thank everyone again for the support and the great GB turnout! You can still snag a set if you would like on remaining vendors.

Just waiting on final numbers from the last vendor before we add the super cool graph. Thanks again to everyone for the great experience.

From here... we wait lol. Estimated delivery is roughly a year. I will keep this thread updated with major updates and news as we get the orders in and get into color matching and shipping. However with the long wait time, don't be surprised if this thread doesn't get a whole lot of attention until those major events kick in. If you want by the minute updates, my Discord is the best place to get those. It's much easier to organize and deliver information via Discord than a forum. But like I said, as major events happen, both will be updated. I appreciate everyone's patience and excitement to get Rainy Day!

Wanted to give a small update. GMK is beginning color matching for Rainy Day this month! I will be sharing pictures and the process with everyone via Discord so if you haven't joined already, stop on by if you're interested in learning about the process. I will be going through the analysis and taking pictures to make sure this is as perfect as possible and meets the expectations and standards of all of YOU.

I am also still reaching out to vendors to get the artisans for Rainy Day going. It's been difficult to coordinate because of all the world events going on, but we are still on track, even if we are a little behind. I apologize for not having more information sooner but they are still in the pipeline. I will have a separate IC and GB page for those when they are ready to be shown off.

I also wanted to apologize for not having more concrete updates on Rainy Day and the artisan collab. To be honest I really intended for it to develop sooner but as I mentioned before, world events made this difficult. I also lost my day job which has made budgeting my time more difficult as well. I am not using that as an excuse because I made a commitment going into this and am still 100% committed. The community has already showed me so much support not only emotionally but, if it wasn't for the success of Rainy Day, I would probably be homeless right now lol. So believe me, making Rainy Day absolutely perfect and delivering on my promises to you guys is my first priority. Thank you all for your patience and understanding and support! We may be a little behind but the quality that I intend to bring to you guys will not be effected!

Thank you for the update, it is always appreciated to hear what is going on.

Please post the pictures of the color matching here aswel. I am not a fan of joining another discord server for every group buy I join. If the set was IC'ed here and the GB post was here the updates should also be posted here. To make it clear I dont mind more deeply discussions about projects or other related things to the designer taking place in his discord. But it should not completely replace the GB post regarding updates. (since you posted this update here you probably see it in a similar way)

I am sorry to hear about your job, hope things will get better soon.

Absolutely! I dont expect everyone to join the Discord. It's just another way for people to get updates is all. The GB thread will be updated with all the pictures and comparisons just the same as the Discord and all input here will be used to make sure that it meets the standards of the community. The more in depth discussion will be reserved for Discord just because thats a better place for back and forth banter and question answering. But everyone on GH will absolutely be kept in the loop for the color matching process! Very excited!

Sorry if it has been answered before, but will deskmat-only orders ship ahead of orders including the keyset?
