Looks pretty cute, I'd say you're probably jumping the gun to run this in February given that you only have renders right now. Given that this is a modest price for a standard small acrylic board, probably good to make sure you have all your ducks in a row.

Just a technicality but I wouldn't really call those dedicated arrow keys.

All in all I love to see new 40% designers! Come join our 40% Keyboards discord server at https://discord.gg/40percent where we have an extremely active open source and DIY community, and we host roughly a hundred 40% exclusive projects in various stages of IC, GB, and production at this moment.

Thank you Yoot, for pointing out the typo. Yes, it is QMK firmware.

and

Thank you machine yearning. I realize that I forgot to post the PCB renders, and I removed the "dedicated arrow keys"  ;D

Due to popular demand, I have modified the PCB and the key layout.
Please check the alternate layout under the MORE section.

Thank you!
