[IC] GMK Graphite (New Accent kit, Updated Base kit)
« on: Fri, 11 August 2017, 16:49:01 »
GMK Graphite






Description:

Introducing the GMK Graphite, a simple and classic keycap set with a little additional color twist.

The keycap set color theme is partially inspired by a breathtaking place from Taiwan - Taroko Gorge, also known as the marble gorge.
The 19km long canyon is wholly made from marble and cut through by a beautiful teal river.

Born in the beautiful country of Taiwan, I spent many moments of my childhood playing amongst a beautiful backdrop of the many mountains and rivers in my homeland.
Even after moving to Canada at very young age, I never forgot the beautiful country which held many dear memories for me.

I would suggest to NOT make black legends on the Dark grey modifiers. 

One of the base white of GMK or that 428CP or 317U would be good for legends on the dark grey modifiers, don't you think?

I have thought of that before I put up the current render but the keycap set would look quite similiar to the few keycap set out there at the moment.
I will see if I can get a render of swapping the 317U or 428CP onto the Modifiers and we can go from there.

Absolutely stunning. I am honestly not a fan of like 90% of the popular GMK group buys but this one is amazing. I would also be partial to modifiers that are white on gray for the higher contrast, but as-is is gorgeous too. Are there going to be icon modifiers only and not text modifiers?

Am I missing the relevancy of this here? The sets are absolutely nothing alike.

Two gray on light gray sets with almost identically colored pale blue modifiers are nothing alike? I would never say someone shouldn't make a set because it's similar to another(in fact the opposite.. more the merrier), but cmon. It's similar.

Ya there is a R2 1.5u backspace on the left side in the render!

Same here, I love Tiffany blue! That's why I joined the GMK Keyboard & Co. & GMK Mint Chocolate.  ;D

I created this set with the intention of making a classic keyset with a pop of color. I know that there are many keysets out there with similar colors and different people have different tastes so yes, the more the merrier! Thank you for pointing that out!  :)

I can see the similarities between this and muted but the dark grey mods definitely let it stand on its own. Looks good!

I think 317U would look amazing for legends on the dark mods. What about using 425CP for the legends on the alphas?

those colors are very nice, I'd buy an ISO modifier kit just to accent other sets.

Really liking the way this looks, classy and not over the top or in your face. Personally, I'd love to see 317 U as the modifier legend color, but it's still fantastic looking the way it is now (I guess it would look too much like Necro at that point, so never mind). I'm interested in this set either way.

Oh, and are there any plans for a communities kit?
