[IC]GMK ZEN POND: Ends Nov 15th
« on: Thu, 03 June 2021, 13:35:29 »

Disclaimer : No keyboards were harmed during the making of this shot.


(1 question, 2 clicks! I would be really grateful if you could spend a couple of seconds to give us some design feedback.)

Option 1                            Option 2                            Option 3


 
 




 



A set inspired by the calm and relaxing Japanese Zen ponds filled with beautiful Koi fishes!

For updates to our current projects and future ones, please join our discord and follow us over Instagram at the links below.

   






We decided on the following kits. Changes will be made depending on opinions and request. So, please fill up the IC and leave us feedback.
The set names were derived from different Koi fish species.


Kohaku aka Hiragana Base Kit (UV printed sublegends)                                                            Asagi aka Latin Base Kit
 

Nishikigoi aka Novelties Kit (UV printed)                                                                       Kawarimono aka Numpad Kit
   

Shusui aka Spacebars Kit                                                                                           Utsurimono aka 40s Kit
 






Ensō                                                            Tancho

GMK doesn't do tripleshot, so will these be pad printed?

Edit:I see it will be, nice use of pad printing, looking forward to it.

Isn't this your 3rd set in IC right now? Outside of that looks nice but I wonder if you'll be able to keep up with 3 sets at once

Thanks for the kind words.

Every set has a different timelines / schedules and distributed work load.
Work on Pharaoh has been over for months.

I would not post anything which is not doable from my part and I wont be juggling projects.

I understand. It just kinda feels weird to have 3 IC's running, it comes off a little cash rabby I guess? Especially because they aren't super unique colorways or anything..

This looks pretty good but not really a fan of uv printing.

Just to add to this, I think maybe white accents with red legends would look good. Then some of the novelties can use red as an outline on white caps to look like koi fish and use double shot. Obviously without uv printing, the novelties won't look quite as nice, but I feel like you could still have really good looking koi novelties that will last a long time. I also really like the novelties with the stones and those should also convert to double shot easily.

As for the kitting, it looks like there are some duplicate keys where you might've forgotten to change them to mod keys. Also I feel like there should be an option for normal colored super.

Other than that, I actually like this set quite a bit and think it has a ton of potential. There aren't that many GMK sets that I like and only a few that I would ever buy, but I would actually consider buying this. GLWIC

IC is Interest Check where I pitch my idea for the community to see. I dont see a problem as long as its close to the final product I would want to create. I am sure no one will complain about the structure and quality of any IC I post.

Secondly, GMK takes months for quotes and getting big vendors takes even more months. So, a lot of future planning is required to execute a set at this level.

Thirdly, it takes months of brainstorming, drawing and rendering to execute an IC like this.

As a designer, I am sure you already know about these things.

But ofcourse, if someone just made a mono colored set with a very common color and without any novelties, I could say that its just "cash grabby"
but I wont because I know every designer puts a lot of time and effort into their work and I believe every creation is unique.

I am sorry that you dont find this set unique. I will try better next time.

Thanks a lot for the response. Can you please leave your feedback in the IC form because then we would have a more structured way to look at the changes required to be implemented.

I will ask GMK about the pricing because DS with UV will be probably more expensive than only UV. We will see what GMK tells us and what can be achieved with this design.

For Kiting: I still cant see what is wrong with the mod keys. Could you please point them out. I must have missed somehow. Removed them.
Regarding the super keys, although it would add 4 keys its quite doable. I might add it.

Lastly, your last comment is really appreciated!!! Thanks again. :thumb: :thumb:

Yeah, I left a little more detailed feedback in the IC form. Right now, the backspace and arrows legends are alpha colored and the extra tilde and pipe are alpha colored and not mod colored. I guess I don't understand why the super keys are using alpha legends and not mod.

I totally understand. I apologize for the way I came off and implying/saying that your set is not good, as I really like it. I was just expressing concern over the 3 IC part, but mentioning cash-grabbiness was disrespectful. Sorry about that.

quite rich coming from a designer that came out with a "simple purple set" that isnt really unique or whatever i guess.

Sorry :/ I have already apologized to SxM for my dumb comment, but I deserved that.

This looks pretty good but not really a fan of uv printing.

Just to add to this, I think maybe white accents with red legends would look good. Then some of the novelties can use red as an outline on white caps to look like koi fish and use double shot. Obviously without uv printing, the novelties won't look quite as nice, but I feel like you could still have really good looking koi novelties that will last a long time. I also really like the novelties with the stones and those should also convert to double shot easily.

As for the kitting, it looks like there are some duplicate keys where you might've forgotten to change them to mod keys. Also I feel like there should be an option for normal colored super.

Other than that, I actually like this set quite a bit and think it has a ton of potential. There aren't that many GMK sets that I like and only a few that I would ever buy, but I would actually consider buying this. GLWIC

Thanks a lot for the response. Can you please leave your feedback in the IC form because then we would have a more structured way to look at the changes required to be implemented.

I will ask GMK about the pricing because DS with UV will be probably more expensive than only UV. We will see what GMK tells us and what can be achieved with this design.

For Kiting: I still cant see what is wrong with the mod keys. Could you please point them out. I must have missed somehow.
Regarding the super keys, although it would add 4 keys its quite doable. I might add it.

Lastly, your last comment is really appreciated!!! Thanks again. :thumb: :thumb:

Yeah, I left a little more detailed feedback in the IC form. Right now, the backspace and arrows legends are alpha colored and the extra tilde and pipe are alpha colored and not mod colored. I guess I don't understand why the super keys are using alpha legends and not mod.

Thanks for the feedback. I did go over the form to check your comment. I will try to provide some explanation.

The backspace/ arrow and tilde/pipe have legends with accent colors by design. I missed the extra keys last time and they are removed now.
I wanted to visualize a pond where the traditional mod legends(white) just did not provide that chaosness. It was, as some one already pointed out " organized chaos"

The whole intention of having the Latin base was to provide an alternative clean set. The accent colored super adds a bit of chaos to the set. However, it also brings the super clean look a bit down. I am not adverse to changes and if more people dont want it I will make those super keys mod colored.
Another alternative ( doable but expensive) is to add 4 mod legended super keys to the latin base.

I hope I could explain myself. If not, feel free to ask again. I would be happy to answer any further things.

Any chance of running this on JTK with triple shots instead?

No I wont be running this with JTK triple shot. The main reason being, I am sure it would not bring any more value to this set in terms of design/ quality or even lead times.

I donít know how I feel about the 2 bases. I think it would be good to go with the one base that sticks to theme better. Other than that it looks good! Koi deskmat super neat glwic.

Thanks for the kind feedback Aad. Really happy you like the set and deskmats!

The main reason for providing 2 bases is to cater to a larger audience. Both kits stick to the theme but some people prefer a cleaner looking set than others.
However, the main concern here is MOQ and quotes from GMK. Vendors will play an important role here when it comes to this stage.

Solid set and IC. I think it's really weird to have the supers as a different legend color from the different mods. The lettering on the cap sizes is too small for me to see easily. Other than those minor nitpicks it's a great set that clearly has had a lot of work put into it. GLWIC!

I really like the novelties! This is probably just a minor and probably local thing, but have you considered a more orange-red than the current red-red? The koi fish that I've encountered at least are more orange than red.

i wish i understood why anyone other than the OP would post "reserved" - are they really going to come back and update their post? are they expressing interest and making a reservation to purchase? and why can't they wait to post until OP gets reply #1? i am so confused at this trend. oh well. glwic  :thumb:

I did reply regarding this earlier. Here is a copy paste.

No I wont be running this with JTK triple shot. The main reason being, I am sure it would not bring any more value to this set in terms of design/ quality or even lead times.

Thanks for the kind words.

I completely agree with you regarding the color being close to red than orange. The reddish orange is GMK stock R02 is is closest stock to color I want. There is another stock orange called GMK V2 which is too orange GMK V1 is also there but its not that bright. The fact that introducing a custom color for such a small thing would mean a significant increase in price. I dont think its worth the money to switch to a custom color for the orange.
