[GB] GMK Modern Dolch Light

(1/41) > >>

Hello everyone!
The time has finally come, the GB for GMK Modern Dolch Light, a brighter variation of the popular GMK Modern Dolch! Jan and I have worked very hard to make this project as great as it can be and we are very excited to finally bring it to you.

As the name might suggest, Modern Dolch Light was born out of Modern Dolch. Janglad and I realised that a lightened up version of MoDo looked great and after some tweaking this is what we came up with. Modern Dolch light features cool greys on both the alphas and modifiers. It uses the grey from Modern Dolch modifiers for the legends, to give it that unique low contrast and calming look. To add some vibrancy we added a variation of the familiar cyan and red/pink accents found in the original Modern Dolch.
Now I know the naming might not make sense, this isn't a Dolch set after all. GMK Modern Dolch Light is a derivative of GMK Modern Dolch which is a derivative of OG Dolch. While this set is not necessarily a Dolch colorway, the name is there to show the origin of the design. One thing is for sure, this set will settle perfectly in every collection as an easy-on-the-eyes colorway that will go with any keyboard!

Buy it here
GMK Modern Dolch Light will be sold until the end of the month by these vendors. The set is expected to ship in Q4 of 2020.
