Welcome to GMK EDC!
Hi everyone! GMK EDC is originally inspired by my old everyday carry backpack. Unfortunately, I recently had to retire it (rip), but I love the colorway and thought it would fit well on a keyboard. This is my first design so any type of feedback would be amazing.

Looks good, I'd be in. FYI in your Google Doc it's currently not possible to select multiple kits in the "Which kit(s) would you be interested in purchasing?" section, you have to make it a multiple selection type field.

I have Yuri on my desk. The colors are quite different.

Post by: iSamurai on Mon, 22 March 2021, 05:56:19
OP maybe it is better to change the name of the set because yes, it is named after Giorgio Morandi (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giorgio_Morandi) but the first thing that comes to mind nowadays with "Morandi" is the bridge (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ponte_Morandi) or Gianni Morandi (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gianni_Morandi); the latter isn't bad per se (but maybe you can incur in some legal issues? Better to check, also because GMK is more strict nowadays) but the former is quite unlucky.

Dirty yuri. Yuri in shadow. Etc.

Hiiiii I am not an expert in colours. But the vivid colour of the orange does not look like morandi to me. I'd expect more of a greyish tone. It could just be me, of course. GLWIC anyway!

I really don't understand those comparing with the other colorways. Like sure it has a similarity of ONE color but don't forget a bunch of other GMK sets are essentially just entire copies of each other. Morandi dark variant is the best one out of all 6 anyways! Good work!

There are no alpha color tilde and pipe in your base, please add them.

Nah the Iqunix board is closer to Bento.
This set here has darker more muted colors.

I'm not against adding them but I'm curious to see how many people prefer alpha-colored tilde and pipe.

I like that this design is specific and personal.  The colorway is good as well.  An excellent project of self-expression!

Similarity to other designs, to me, doesn't matter at all.  The only way similarity hurts is if it prevents you from hitting MOQ.  This hobby has hyper-limited supply and if designers don't intend on constantly re-running sets then similarity is the only way for a person who missed a set to still enjoy customizing their board.

Thank's I'll probably scale the novelties up and compare or do some pixel counting.

I enjoy the colors, and i won't hesitate to pick up a base set (assuming you get a European vendor)!

To me the novelties seem generic and have no appeal - it's like they were added because the set had to have novelties. But maybe someone else disagrees :)

I like the colours... but the set does not really evoke EDC to me (I guess it's your EDC). No flashlight, multitool, pen (fisher space pen, tactile turn, or fountain pen), phone... sunglasses are more commonly carried and universal I believe.

EDCs also have many themes- all brass , that orange guy, blackout, tacticool, titanium.... I guess this is more of a minimal EDC set.

Are you trying to wind us up, or have you really not gone through the OP? He has a comparison to other sets, including Bento.

I think it’s sufficiently different, and he actually has pictures of his inspiration, which is _not_ Bento.

Please make sure of your facts before posting snarky comments.

TBH, read the whole thing but missed the very last image with the comparison (and maybe that was added after I commented), but if you think this is going to look materially different from Bento once it's delivered, then you are deluding yourself. I personally think this is way too close to one of the most popular sets ever made.
