[IC] Deep Deskmat R2 | GB on Nov. 15!
« on: Sun, 10 October 2021, 07:44:43 »
Hello Geekhack!
This is an interest check for a round 2 of the "Deep" deskmat,
the optical illusion, minimalist mat.

Current Status:  GB IS LIVE! :)





The Deep Deskmat round 1 ran as a group buy on March 2021 with 5 colors
(black, white, beige, hackerman, and gum). This time, I would like to ask for your
help in finalizing the colorways for round 2 (more choices!). Please vote for your
favorite colors in the IC form below!
See the results of the voting below!

Colorways


The final colors for Round 2 represent both new and old colors! There will be 2 returning
colors (revised design with new subtle gradients too) and 3 new colors based on the
voting from the IC form. Here are the final picks!



Black | white on black




Beige | dark beige on beige




Gray | white on gray




Lavender | white* on lavender




Navy | cyan on navy blue




Archived Colors:

I hope to pick 5 final colors from these! I got some of these ideas
from other people and from the old google form.



White | gray on white
More



Stealth | gray on black
More



Coffee | crema on coffee
More



Nature - Light | dark green on light green
More



Nature - Dark | light green on dark green
More



White Wine | burgundy wine on light gray
More



Red Wine | light gray on burgundy wine
More



Olivia | rose gold on dark gray
More



Waves | blue on baby blue
More



Holo | yellow on black
More



Copper | rust on dark gray
More






Specifications:

- 900 x 400 x 4 mm
- Stitched edges
- Rubber non-slip bottom


I have also updated the design of the Deep Deskmat for this round.
Some of the minor changes are:

- subtle gradients to help the illusion
- minor changes to the layout
- offered more colors to pick from


These are designed as 900x400x4mm. The keyboard is a RAMA WORKS
u80 render. Thank you RAMA WORKS for the keyboard design!

How would the mat look if the rectangular prism extended to the edge of the mat?

Thanks for the heads up! I noticed late that it copied the link in a weird way but it's fixed

I did try this but manufacturing wise it was difficult to properly align the edges, this way it's easier for manufacturing to reproduce. I can try to show you a sample later of what it would look like if the edges were pushed all the way though

If manufacturing is an issue, then there's no need to entertain that thought. Thank you for the response.

If there was a greenish black with orange lines option I'd definitely be in.

I'll try to meet you in the middle and make it a really light/bright cream! That way it doesn't look too dark and could look white even  ;D

That'd be wonderful! It's an insta-buy if it's white, hopefully it's close enough to that cause it looks a bit too yellow for me right now. Buying the White variant either way. :)

Thanks for pointing it out! Looking back I do see how it seems more yellow than clear. I'll most likely go with the white lines instead!

Who's the manufacturer?  There are certain ones I'd wish to avoid. Thanks.

It was a hard decision to limit the returning colors to just 2 slots but I also wanted to give more changes to the new colorways :( thank you for the support!
