[IC] ePBT Kavala - GB in 10 days!
« on: Mon, 07 June 2021, 06:50:10 »


Interest Check Form: Click Here
GB Oct 1 - Nov 1, 2021

ePBT Kavala

Kavala (pronounced Kah-vaa-lah) is a town in Greece, and my mom’s hometown. I was inspired by a beautiful picture of a sunset my uncle took while on a walk. ePBT Kavala is designed to capture how the last sunlight of the day plays amongst the clouds, creating a mesmerizing gradient of color from the open sky to the horizon.

Colors:

Disclaimer: Please note that these are digital representations in RGB color that approximate the original Pantones. The colors are subject to change. I know that this set will live or die by my ability to colormatch in the sampling phase. My promise to you is that I will do my best to make the gradient as beautiful and close to the pantones as possible.
More

The R3 Mod color has been changed from 209U to 207U. The hue is nearly identical, but is lighter and more saturated, increasing legibility and making the gradient smoother.

Pricing:

Pricing for vendors currently listed as "TBD" will be released closer to GB date for more accurate currency exchange rates.

Kits:

Sunset - $99

A gradient base kit with support for most 60% layouts, and full support for 65%, 75%, and TKL.

Clouds - $45

An alternate mods kit. When combined with Sky it has support for most 60% layouts, and full support for 65%, 75%, and TKL.

Sky - $29

An alternate alphas kit with full Greek lowercase sublegends. Has an extra tab for Sunset users who would like to cover two boards.

Sunset Novelties - $29

Novelties that support a full macro column, and an extra R2 sun so 40s users can Esc into the Sunset.

Clouds Novelties - $29

Novelties that support a full macro column for Clouds users who prefer the alternate mods.

Second this, the set is inspired by a Greek town, seems fit to have Greek sublegends in base. No sublegends should be the addon.

Consider 2 base kits like epbt origami. I imagine many people will want the Greek set and each Base would have a moq of 100 instead of 200

Thank you all for the feedback and kind words. This set has been a labor of love, and to see it receive such a positive response on day one means a lot to me.

Regarding the greek subs in base, please fill out the IC form with that feedback if changing the kitting would significantly increase the likelihood that you would buy something from the set. I am open to changing kitting based on IC feedback. Rn I am hoping that the Sky kit will be $30-40, and therefore not significantly cost-prohibitive.

I have tried to cover as many variations as possible in my renders (under the "more" tab), including Sky+Clouds variations. If there are additional variations you would like to see please let me know and I will try to satisfy the request(s) to the best of my ability.

Not sure if the moq thing is a big issue for ePBT. Correct me if im wrong but isn't it if one set hits moq then all of them get made?

I personally prefer a separate sublegends kit because I can potentially fill up 2 boards without having to buy 2 whole base kits, I also don't want to be left with half a dozen shift keys that I will never use if I buy 2 base kits.

You are correct, My point in bringing up moq was that for epbt  if you have 2 base kits the moq is only 100 each (so still only 200 total) not 200 each. So there’s very little downside in offering 2 base kits

I understand this sentiment completely. Clouds + Sky is meant to be an alternative for those who aren't on board with so many colors. Check out the additional renders, there are quite a few combinations you can put the set in, including a blue-only colorway I'm partial towards.

As an update, I am currently working on securing vendors and collabs. If you're interested in working with me don't hesitate to reach out!

I am far from an expert on kitting, but for my personal use, it would be fantastic if you added two R1 1u mods to the mikró kit. It would allow me to just get the Sky alphas and the mikró kit to fill my 4-row split ergos (for example Sofle, Lily). For full Preonic-style orthos, you would need more R4 1u, but many users might find a way to still make that work with the extra R4 keys in the alphas set. Just a thought, totally understand if it is not worth it, esp. with the base kit MoQ being important with ePBT, afaik.

I hear you. A while back a survey was completed by an NA vendor (if memory serves) that showed people generally prefer icon+text mods with icon-only a somewhat close second, and text-only a distant third.

My main suggestion would be to follow your inspiration. It is so personal, so, I bet you can draw some great non-cliche ideas there.

My personal associations with Greece and the image on the deskmat would be: an olive branch (or just an olive), a small fishing boat, the sunset in the sea, the shape of the Peloponnese and/or Crete, a branch of thyme, the Bouzouki, and of course the building style with lots of interwoven cubic shapes and some domes, as well as ornate wooden doors (this is probably very hard to capture in novelty, though). To me, all the references to ancient Greece (columns, pantheon, statues) are not as strong/too cliched, but if these are strong associations for you, I can totally understand that.

I guess it might make sense to decide what aspects of Greece you want to focus on, to make the theme stronger and more coherent.

I love anything and everything to do with Greek Mythology, but realize that's not really the aesthetic you're going for here. But if you decided to make novelties or a set in the future with this theme (especially using pbt again!), I would likely have to instantly buy all of it.

Development on the novelties is progressing, what Greek-themed illustrations would you like to see?

Regarding the icons,

1) I don't think it has to be heavily Greek themed. I'm just tired of the usual 'arrows on everything' icon mods, like with shifts, backspace, enter and cap locks. At the same time, I don't want it to be cheesy by having icons of Greek vases and temples. Simple symmetric shapes would be nice. Some ideas:

Zeus lightning for esc

Artemis or Cupid arrow for backspace or enter

Posideon trident and Hades symbol for shifts

Helios/ Apollo sun symbol for whatever

Aphrodite heart, Dionysus grape, Athena owl, Demeter branch, Hermeus Caduceus, etc. There are a lot of cool symbols that can replace the typical icon mods.

2) It may be worth considering centering these icons, rather than putting it on the left side. Like original cherry style. I can't be the only one who finds the usual right side mods awkward as hell aligned to the left.

3) The reason I suggest icon mods over the text + icon mods is because regular icon mods look a lot cleaner with sublegend alphas. I do believe with regular latin alphas, the text + icon mods look a bit more balanced. Imo having these unique mod designs will really match the Greek sublegends.

I think these icons are a cool idea, I personally enjoy non-standard mod icons, but I know a lot of the community does not like that at all. The idea with icons representing the gods is cool, though not for me. I get more "modern Greece" vibes from the colors and inspiration. However, depending on the execution, icons like that would not deter me from purchasing the set.

My main suggestion would be to follow your inspiration. It is so personal, so, I bet you can draw some great non-cliche ideas there.

My personal associations with Greece and the image on the deskmat would be: an olive branch (or just an olive), a small fishing boat, the sunset in the sea, the shape of the Peloponnese and/or Crete, a branch of thyme, the Bouzouki, and of course the building style with lots of interwoven cubic shapes and some domes, as well as ornate wooden doors (this is probably very hard to capture in novelty, though). To me, all the references to ancient Greece (columns, pantheon, statues) are not as strong/too cliched, but if these are strong associations for you, I can totally understand that.

I guess it might make sense to decide what aspects of Greece you want to focus on, to make the theme stronger and more coherent.

Thank you for the feedback. The novelties designs have been progressing smoothly. I'm going to be avoiding the typical associations people have with Greece, such as Santorini houses, the Parthenon, the Greek Pantheon of Gods, etc. and rather focus on things that are culturally relevant to Greece, and to Kavala specifically. Kavala was originally a fishing town, so one of your ideas may be currently in development.

That sounds great to me. A strong theme does a lot for me with a keycap set and you clearly have a strong connection to and vision for this theme, that's always the best. Looking forward to the novelties!

Re: [IC] ePBT Kavala - Color Change & 40s Kit Overhaul
« Reply #54 on: Mon, 28 June 2021, 22:35:10 »
Update:
The R3 Mod color has been changed from 209U to 207U. The hue is nearly identical, but is lighter and more saturated, increasing legibility and making the gradient more smooth.

The 40s kit, Mikró, has been overhauled, becoming a fully-fledged 40s mods kit with support for JD40/45, Prime-e, Planck, Preonic, Minivan, Dimple, and Whimsy layouts, among others when paired with Sky (Alt alphas).

I'm excited to hear your feedback on this update!

In case anyone missed it, the OPA! replaces the meta key.

I don’t know how I’ve missed this! Great looking set and hopefully will come to fruition. Personally if it will have proper Greek sublegends (I am Greek but live in the UK) with also proper UK ISO support, I’ll be getting two sets definitely and some child kits too. Looking forward to the GB!!!

-what do you mean by proper UK ISO support?

By proper sublegends I mean dyed ones, cause up this day I have to resort to using stick on shreek sublegends on my keycaps (yes, not funny). As for proper UK ISO again I mean prepped support and not just as many do by declaring iso support because they throw in an ISO enter keycap.


Thanks in advance for making this set and as I said count me in for two sets at least!

Ok! I'll buy it either way, but I've been thinking of switching later on, so would buy it just in case :) Just out of curiosity, what impact does extra kits have for everything? Is it "just" the extra time you as the designer have to spend, or does it raise the price for everyone else? I get what you mean, ePBT Scandi which was the other set I was looking at only had 19 Typist sets bought, out of 592 base kits

With ePBT price structure there's not a massive punishment for lots of child kits (see ePBT Be the One), but there are a couple additional costs between design time, and vendor logistics and keeping track of kits. My main concern is that offering support for just one of these "rare" layouts seems difficult to justify.

Hi friends! I am working on seeing if there is a way I can both fulfill these requests, while keeping the # of kits down. Would you be OK with buying bundled kits that cost around the same as the norde (Global) kit, maybe a couple dollars less?

Update on Colevrak and Language Support

The beacons were lit - many of you called for aid. I will try to answer the call for language and Colevrak support.

Here is the plan: In the next couple weeks I will be requesting quotes from ePBT. At that time I will be including some bundled language kit options and Colevrak. Based on how the quotes look I will talk to the kitting gods and release those new kits along with pricing. After that kitting should be finalized.

Almost biting my nails, scrolling down, prepared to be disappointed that no Int/NorDe kit was in this. Lo and behold! There is!!! So happy. This set is perfect.

I've been looking for a light/sky blue set for so long, to the degree I even bought Protozoa Frost, even though the only ISO about it is the ISO enter. Happy this isn't GMK, too, since I'd like to get my set before I retire. ;)(Just joking, I like the rougher tactile feeling of the ePBT caps better.)

Dope Dope Dope, I like the choice to go with no reverse dye sub, unlike my set XD GLWGB

In the global kit I can not find a R4 key with a comma and a semicolon ,; for full german support. At the place where most other global kits have this key there is a colon with semicolon :; key. Am I to blind to find this key, or is this a mistake?

This was a mistake that was pointed out to me a little while ago, thanks for the reminder. The Global (NorDe) kit has been fixed, see the current kit images for the updated kit.
