I love mangoes! Cute set. imo the red is a bit too red to be a mango, though.

I feel like there's a lot of potential for novelties for this set, have you considered adding a new design so that the 1.25u and 2.25u keys are different?
e.g. showing the cut half mango next to a full mango, a mango with a cute smiley face, a mango tree, mango slices

Also, do you have an interest check form?

The colors in the kit renders & board renders are completely different, and the IC seems rushed. I know for a fact that a lot of people gave you feedback on the colors, and you basically just brushed all of that feedback off and kept going your own way. I personally don't see this working on many boards, and it needs a lot of work before GB, despite all of that, I can see what you are going for. GLWIC.

Why so little in the way of novelties? There is a lot of potential for some interesting ones here.

F-row in board renders is wrong  :thumb:

Other than that, I like the colors, however, the color on the board renders seem to be a bit darker compared to the kit renders

Not something I would put on my keyboard but it fits the intended theme. Novelties could be expanded upon and no need for 2 2u spacebars imo.

Hey this set has a lot of potential! Maybe remove the outer red, and go with a dark orange gradient? It seems like this is too much of a shift in color for a set like this.

ngl, not sure what this would match with since its very colorful but uh...
keep working!  :thumb:

i'd also recommend using the lny20 from rama to help really designate what colors are best matched with your set but it's just really a suggestion. take it how you want it.

My niece for whatever reason calls herself Mango LOL

She is into mechanical keyboards, just like her uncle. It'd be awesome to see her reaction to this.

Many stylized mango images annoyingly have the one leaf attached directly to the fruit. This leads me to believe most folks have never seen a mango on a tree. I appreciate the proper representation. Respect.

I think it is pretty nice but you should add more keys in the novelties set, I would literally just buy the novelties for a macropod, but the novelty illustrations are still "bussing". Lol.

I like the inspiration but I don't really like the execution. This kit is doing too much imo, I'm curious what it would look like if the green and maybe another color get phased out.
Mango skin come in lot's of colors but a mango is still like 90% yellow. I would phase out all this gradient work happening on the alphas and use different colors on the mods only as light accents.

Colorway is fine for those who like it.
I think this set would be taken more seriously if the novelties were reworked or just pulled.

ISO Enter Key is confusing.
• It is pretty difficult to display that mango smoothies and other beverages are delicious.
• It may be beneficial to put the mangos outside of the beverages and or garnishes on the top.
• Without the colorway the actual image doesn't scream mango. It looks like something in a cup without any liquid.
• There is no "Liquid" in the cup. Fill cup with 3514c and now you have a mango color smoothie.

Umm can we get a different novelty for ansi enter and maybe some 1.5u novelties? Kind of redundant to have the same novelty in 3 different locations
EDIT: Just noticed the renders show 1.5u novelties but none are listed in the novelties kit? And like someone above me mentioned that ISO enter is confusing, if you’re going for sliced mangoes in a cup then you don’t need a lid or a straw, if you’re going for mango smoothie then make it look like a liquid
