looks great, that yellow actually seems really nice imo. Maybe a little less highlighter-y but otherwise, awesome set.

I feel different about the yellow every time I look at it. I don't think I'm a huge fan, but it does make it stand out and gives it a unique feel!

Hey everyone, thanks for all the feedback and kind words! Looks like the accent color is pretty divisive, so moving forward I've added a question in the IC form to help me gauge the general opinion on the accents. If you've already responded to the form, you should be able to edit your response :)

I love the colors, and the accent yellow is totally unique. Are you super committed to GMK? I'd love to see this on a spherical profile rather than cylindrical. (DSA or SA r3 would be so nice!)

I went with GMK because I think they have the best chance of nailing that alpha color, but definitely open to other profiles in the future.

Thanks! Appreciate it :D

For recent updates, novelties have been in the works and I'm wrapping up the designs. The Under Construction banner I added to the original post serves as a teaser for now. I hope people will like them :)

Title: Re: [IC] GMK Purple-ish | June 29: Major Kitting Update + Novelties!
Post by: kight on Tue, 29 June 2021, 18:52:03
Yo, kitting update! All kits have been updated, changes are below:

Base
Changed 'Code' to 'Super' to match board renders
- Dropped accent arrows (now in Novelties)

Novelties
+ (New!) Added kit

Spacebars
+ Added alpha 3u, 1u, 3u bars
+ Added accent Alice bars (2u, 2.25u, 2.75u)
- Dropped 6u off-center

The most significant kitting update is the new novelties kit:
(https://i.imgur.com/co9yBBi.png)

Since the colorway is based off a phone, the novelties are inspired by an easter egg game on the operating system where you can collect little cats, similar to Neko Atsume.
I added enough 1u keys to fill out an entire 5x2 macro layout with cats if you really wanted to, but that could be overkill. Let me know what you guys think.



Next up in the pipeline will be new renders and me playing with possible deskmat designs.
As always, let me know any feedback you have in the IC form (https://forms.gle/2U2ToLprp3TPMwf48)! If you've already responded (thanks!), you should be able to edit your response.

kight out
