[IC] GMK Bordeaux | Collaborations Revealed! (9/5/21) 🍷

(1/14) > >>

aerospice:


I would like to introduce to you GMK Bordeaux, a keycap set based on the world capital of wine! Much of the color palette was inspired by the cream and light brown brickwork shown throughout "Old Town" Bordeaux's architectural work (Port Cailhau, Place de la Bourse, La Grosse Cloche, etc.), as well as the gravel/clay soils that the vineyards use to cultivate the grape varieties there. I also wanted to include a deep red color to represent the cabernet merlot blended wine selections that the region is most famous for producing. Here is a mood board that I used to visualize my ideas.

Deskmat Trivia:
The Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855 (Grand Cru Classé) resulted from the 1855 Exposition Universelle de Paris, when Emperor Napoleon III (1808-1873) requested a classification system for France's finest Bordeaux wines that were to be on display for visitors from all across the globe. This quality classification system comprises only of left bank chateaus in Médoc, Graves, and Sauternes, ranked from first to fifth growths. In Bordeaux, the first growths are called "premiers crus" (highest quality) while the second through fifth growth crus are called "crus classés." As of today, the Grand Cru Classé of 1855 is the most popular and longest-standing wine classification system in Bordeaux.

Have you tried with the 2309 color for the alphas ?
Not really digging the current 2474 color, unfortunately.

MadBinton:
Hey Kevster,

Nice to see this got off the ground. I'm not entirely sure I'd like that final brown / cork color myself, but looking at the inspiration I do think it's well done.

Looks really nice on the Paragon and U80!

The accent color and novelties bring it together. These novelties are amazing quality!

If this runs in GB by the time GMK is a bit more on top of their queues, I might just join to support and for those amazing novelties.
