[IC] - Tropical Ocean

(1/2) > >>

Niten001:
I have long admired the multi-colored keycap sets used on many a keyboard posted on this site, but have never found a color scheme that I really like so I decided to design one. Introducing Tropical Ocean a keycap set based upon the calm peaceful tropical waters that are so inviting when on vacation.

I am thinking double shot with either Off-White or Shine through text. I haven't yet decided what profile they will follow (either OEM or SA) nor where they would be produced. The font used is Varela Round.

To Do: Novelties Kit, International Kit, Extra Homing + Shift Keys, Decide on + contact Manufacturer, Choose exact colors for the plastic.

Please give me feedback on any thing I have forgotten and how I can improve the kit.

This seems like it'd be incredibly expensive to produce... looks really cool though \_(ツ)_/

Not knocking on your design, because I do find it very appealing, but you might want to look at SP DSA Borealis, and "Sea Foam", though the later one never got produced I think.

I think this is definitely different enough from both. Looks beautiful!

I like the color scheme!

However, using a custom font will make it super expensive (every manufacturer), so you probably have to go for whatever the manufacturer offers.

As for shine through and DSA, according to the FAQ (http://keycapsdirect.com/faq.php), Signature Plastics does offer translucent legends in a double shot setting. However, there is an impact on the quality which you can read up on there.

I think this set might very well work without translucent legends.
