[IC] GMK Panda - New renders + Collabs
« on: Sun, 07 March 2021, 11:43:39 »



-Welcome to the interest check for GMK Panda-

A simple set inspired by pandas and their favorite snack, bamboo.

Please check out the IC form:
Interest Form

|_____________________________________________________________________________________|
|_______________________________________________________________________________|

Colors:
CR | WS1 | AE




For this set I decided to go with all GMK stock colors in order to achieve the goal of lower overall cost and possible MOQ.

|_________________________________________________________________________________________|
|___________________________________________________________________________|

-Kits-


This base kit has compatibility for full-size, 1800, TKL, 75%, 65%, and 60% boards along with support for F13 boards and “b” for Alice layouts.




Cangjie alphas kit featuring traditional and simplified legends and their corresponding homing keys.
Huge thanks to Grundlemere for providing the files for this kit.



Press “MORE” for more info on kitting decisions.

More
The reason for no mod colored tilde,pipe and extra tab for this kit is due to additional cost another color would add. The hope is to have fairly affordable kits and adding those keys would contradict that. An extra tab key is included in the base kit allowing those who purchase a cangjie alphas kit to fill two boards (assuming it hits GB phase).



Spacebar kit with support for your more common alice layouts, 6u centered stem for HHKB, and some accent bars.




Novelties kit with some cute panda and bamboo novelties.


Press “MORE” for more info about colour decisions regarding this kit.
More
Within this novelties kit I chose to go with white on black pandas because simply put, green pandas looked quite odd. Unfortunately this does stray from the overall colour scheme of the set. However, a render is provided with an example of a board that I believe the panda novelties look quite nice on. Along with that, green bamboo novelties are also included for those that desire better correlation to the colour scheme.

I don't think the accent pandas should be included because of how weird they look but other than that, everything else seems to look good. GLWIC  :thumb:

I agree, I think all the panda novelty legends would look best as white or just ditch the green panda novelties in general.

Glad to see ic out, I recommend adding an extra tab to the extra alphas in order to cover two boards when buying base and alphas, not a huge fan of the black panda either, glwic though!

Although I don't have an infinity with the subject manner, I love the colours and in particular the shade of green used. Really nice. Please consider UK ISO in the base set, just to make it perfect. Can't wait to see some tasteful RAMA in that green.

Ah so the issue with this is that MOQ would likely not be hit if I did make a kit for this. Sorry about that.
Also, I personally am not the biggest fan of face sets/kits. Just my preference.

So I’m aware that the varmillo board exists but I hope that this set provides better quality caps, colors, and correlation to the theme. My intentions were not to “copy” varmillo by any means but I’m glad you pointed it out so I could address it. Thank you  :thumb:
