I would buy a set, if it is doubleshot thick PBT in OEM profile and under $100 for a standard US ANSI 104 layout.

i doubt vortex will be doing cherry or dcs.
i'm 90% sure they are using OEM/Filco profile.

this is one of their recent keyset that i know of.

i'm guessing if your set goes into production, they will probably be using the same legend as the picture with your colour theme design.
i've a lot of doubt about them doing molds for the text mods and some other mods that they don't currently have it.
but i do hope i'm wrong in this :P
In my view the colors of Vortex sets are fine and are not overly "disco".
Profiles is Vortex are a bit high though. So I'm pro- Cherry profile.
I would preferred your set to have colors close to these Vortex sets and centered fonts and legends as large and bold as they are in Vortex sets, which are looking much "classier" than off-center ones.

That sample pic makes me want a 122 with 4 Esc keys...

Here's what I'd liked:
1) Different color instead of this dark one. Kind of too gloomy to me :(.
2) Non-solid arrows, more like: < ^ > in my opinion will be more attractive.
3) Lower profile keys.

Color scheme is pretty good and I like OEM profile. However, the font depicted in the OP is suck, as are the other legends they've been using for doubleshot PBT. If you can fix the font, I will buy a set.
Please consider carefully before you decide to comment, for Jesus.

I'm interested, but need to see a final mockup before committing.
