GMK LAZURITE
An allusion to High Renaissance art and the value of the pigment ultramarine


Hello geekhack! This keycap set is inspired by my curiosity about the color blue and my love for Renaissance art. :D This is my first time designing a keycap set so please bear with me.

Why Lazurite?



Blue was an extremely expensive pigment in ancient times. In order to create this pigment, painters had to grind up the semi-precious stone lapis lazuli, and turn it into ultramarine, a deep blue pigment priced at the same value as gold during the Renaissance period. Ultramarine came from Latin "ultra marinus" which means "beyond the sea" as the lapis lazuli required to create the pigment is imported from Badakhshan, Afghanistan. Because of this, the pigment was only used for the most important subjects of paintings in Europe at the time. It became the hallmark of Renaissance paintings created by many historical painters of that period.

Lazurite is the blue component of the gemstone lapis lazuli, a lazurite-calcite-pyrite rock that has been mined from Badakhshan and was used for jewelries even before being discovered by the Egyptians and Europeans. Lazurite is ultramarine in color, commonly found embedded on a calcite marble, with pyrite accents.

02/10/21

-Since we are still waiting for the price quotes from GMK/UNIQEY, we will be rescheduling the GB date for GMK Lazurite. We don't want to rush things and this will also help us prepare everything with breathing room before the actual dates. I am in constant communication with vendors, collaborators and everyone involved in this project.
-While there are things not going according to the initial plan, there is still great news for everyone, we will make sure the community is satisfied with the group buy (GIVEAWAY/S) on their way.  ;)

02/28/21

-Major kitting revision was done after communication with GMK. The gold custom color I used for the child kits needs to be present in the Lazurite base kit. Having NO gold custom color on the base kit pushes the child kits to a much larger MOQ of 250, which typically stands at 100. Our (me and lead vendor) resolution was to move the Pyrite (accent kit) to the Lazurite base while removing the gold arrow keys.
-We have done this revision after GMK sent back their feedback last week and we'll still be on the waiting end for the final quotes before we proceed to the set's group buy.

Hopefully, all goes well and I'll keep working hard (more renders, timely updates, planned giveaways, transparency, and keeping in touch with people who have further questions about the set) for everyone who has been following and supporting Lazurite.

03/13/21

For anyone who's been following the set, involved with this project, and would just like to get updates, I just came home from vacation :D
-After being thoroughly reviewed by the engineering team of GMK, it was reported back to me that I needed to revise the High Renaissance novelties (thickness and gaps), we were not able to push through with the GB schedule because I needed to do a rework. Redesigning the novelties made the contours more uniform than the previous ones. No changes were made with the key sizes and colors. This is already approved by GMK.
-I seized the opportunity to overhaul and optimize the kitting of the whole set one last time while redesigning the novelties, minimizing as much keys as possible while providing enough support for different layouts with the new base and child kits. You can always ask me through my Discord server if you ever need clarification re specifics of the set.
-All renders I uploaded with the old High Renaissance Novelties design will be re-uploaded

Thank you for the support! Hope you all are staying safe and healthy. As these words have stuck with me from my vacation, I'd like to tell you this as well:
Follow your bliss.

Meanwhile, here's my recent render of GMK Lazurite on KL-90 by Kiko's Lab

GMK Lazurite High Renaissance Novelties 1 and 2 Compatibility

I have requested permissions from twgecko (designer of GMK Civilizations) and simbusped (designer of GMK Earth Tones) to render Lazurite's novelties kits 1 and 2 to showcase how these two kits can be used to accompany existing or upcoming monotone keysets (same alphas and mods color). The limit to how your keyboard looks with the High Renaissance novelties kits is your imagination. You can take a look at these renders I made of 2 GMK sets paired with Novelties 1 and 2 respectively:

If you are reading this, I'd like to let you know that it has been a rough road getting to this point. But I will always stay positive about this journey. Ultra marinus, the theme of this set means beyond the sea, representing us as a community, a distant bond but a precious one. I will always wish the best for all of you. Thank you for being a part of this journey!

-Get more updates and info about the set here:






GMK Lazurite Color Combination

Here is the summarized breakdown of how the set looks like in terms of colors:

For people who want minimal colors, ultramarine blue and white
Lazurite (Base): blue alphas, white mods
Calcite (Alternate Alphas): white alphas
Lapis (Spacebars): blue
High Renaissance (Blue) | Novelties 2: blue on white

For people who would like to accentuate their keycap set with gold on ultramarine blue
Lazurite (Base): blue alphas, white mods, gold accents
Lapis (Spacebars): gold
High Renaissance (Gold) | Novelties 1: gold on blue

I have added a few gold Esc and Enter keys for the 40s community so you can also have the 'pyrite' accents.
Ultra (Extension): blue on white, blue on gold





Kits

Lazurite - Base Kit
Ultramarine with a touch of white modifiers and gold accents. Wide range of layouts support (including 1800, full-size, basic US ISO, basic 40%, 60%, 65%, 75%, TKL, HHKB, WKL, Tsangan, Alice, etc.)
Inspiration: lapis lazuli's lazurite on a calcite marble with pyrite mineral accents

Colors: Blue, White, Gold accents







Calcite - Alternate Alphas Kit
An all white, minimalist alternative to Lazurite's ultramarine alphas
Inspiration: pure calcite marble with minimal touch of ultramarine

Colors: Blue on White







Lapis - Spacebars Kit
Includes ultramarine colored 6.0u centered stem and off-centered stem bars, split bars, and gold 'pyrite' bars to accentuate either the base or the alternate alphas kit

Colors: Blue, Gold accents







High Renaissance - Novelties Kits 1 and 2

The idea is to create a paint frame which acts as 'borders' on orthos, usual 40%, 60%, 65%, 75%, 80%/TKL, Tsangan, HHKB, WKL, 1800 and full-sized keyboards.

The ornamental novelties will serve as the paint frame's corners. Let's share the love and support for other layouts :D

High Renaissance (Gold) | Novelties Kit 1

Color: Gold on Blue



High Renaissance (Blue) | Novelties Kit 2

Color: Blue on White




Lazurite Kits with High Renaissance Novelties Renders




Ultra - Extension Kit

Colors:Blue, Gold, White







PATAG x Lazurite Desk Mats

Specifications:
-900mm x 400mm
-microfiber top
-stitched edges
-rubber base

Notes:
-I have partnered Lazurite with a desk mat brand, PATAG that I founded last year
-PATAG is a brand geared towards promoting Filipino culture through our products (desk mats), with a commitment of sharing our profit to the local Filipino indigenous communities where designs are inspired from.
-Lazurite's desk mats are distinct from what we design as a brand. Even so, I have decided, being a majority owner of this venture, that our brand will be sharing part of the desk mats' sales profit to one of the art schools here in the Philippines to inspire local artists/designers in pursuing their talents.

Base kit: Love alphas, hate mods
But with proper ISO support probably would buy it just for alphas.
Please add:R4:Pipe/Backslash and R3:Tilde/GraveAccent

this is surprisingly nice. I'm interested for now esp with the dark alpha, light mod.
Suggestion: maybe add gold spacebar for accent?
Though tbh, with that small of a kit, just adding it to the base kit might be better. Not sure myself.

The picture-frame–like flourish novelties are really nice, it's perhaps what I enjoy most about this set :) Also, I hadn't seen the deskmats previously; I gotta say the “ornament” one is right up my alley.

Have you decided on which colors you'll be using exactly?

I think you can remove the blue 1u Esc key from the Lazurite base kit.
I second adding gold 6.25u and 7u spacebars to the accent kit.

I see you keep requesting this in various IC threads, and I've been meaning to tell you that this is neither proper nor standard ISO support. Did you perhaps mean to say tilde/hash (~#) instead of tilde/grave (`~)? Cause that would at least make some sense. :)

This set is going to look good on more keyboards than I realize right now, definitely a solid interest of mine from here on out. Also agreeing with the idea for a gold spacebar accent since we already have a few gold caps and the other space bars are in the base/alpha kits. Deskmats look clean too, the gold flourish style that konstantin pointed out is also catching my eye.

I'm actually really loving the novelties. Quite a bit, actually.

I would prefer dark mods, but I think I'd be in on this regardless. Just based on those novelties alone! Well done!

I'm sorry for that "proper ISO" is vague at best :-(
UK ISO would do the job but requires to include 123 & other keys too. I actually need to put some US (or US-like) keycaps on 60% ISO with 1.25U left shift so by "proper ISO" I mean something very minimal, adding to your kit:
- R4:Pipe/Backslash
- R3:Tilde/GraveAccent (preferred) or R3:Tilde/Hash (not ideal but will do).
will make me happy.
BTW: R4:<> key always surprises me in keycap sets that already have "<" & ">" on comma & dot keys.

Thank you for the great feedback re the novelties! Will try to do renders of boards on these desk mats.

For the colors, as a nod to ultramarine, I'll be using the exact RAL Ultramarine and WS1. Not yet fully decided with the gold accent but I based it off of brass weights.

Will surely remove the blue 1u Esc, I missed this one, my bad.  :(
I will be adding those gold bars for the Pyrite kit. Np.  :D

Always great to see your feedback. Thank you!

This will depend on GMK's tolerances and specifications so I might have to wait for their response before I invest more time doing renders with the High Renaissance kit.

- R4:Pipe/Backslash
- R3:Tilde/GraveAccent (preferred) or R3:Tilde/Hash (not ideal but will do).
will make me happy.
BTW: R4:<> key always surprises me in keycap sets that already have "<" & ">" on comma & dot keys.

There's one thing that I'm not getting here, so please help me out. If your use case is US ISO, why are you against keys that are intended for covering that exact layout (R3 \|, R4 <>)? If this sounds unfamiliar, please read through this and this to get an idea of what I'm referring to.

R3, not R4, is the main position for the pipe key in US ISO layouts. This is apparent if we take a look at both the “PC-style” and “terminal-style” traditional conventions, as well as US ISO implementations on Mac (which puts \| on R3 and `~ on R4 — opposite from your suggestion) and Linux (which puts \| on R3 and <> on R4).

Having the < and > legends duplicated across the R4, comma and period keys is no different from having `, ~ or # legends duplicated across the corresponding R4 and R1 keys. In actuality, the former option is even slightly better since at least the whole key isn't duplicated (<> as a whole is different from ,< .>); unlike with R1/R4 `~, where you do get a full duplicate key.

The other idea behind <> is that it also offers (limited) partial coverage for NorDe and related layouts, which together as a group represent the most statistically significant portion of ISO users. You can find the relevant breakdown here.

Let's recap: R3 \|, R4 \| (“PC-style”) and R3 \|, R4 <> (“terminal-style”) are the most appropriate* and de facto standard ways off adding US ISO or basic 4-key generic ISO support to a set. In custom keycap sets, we mostly choose to go with the latter option because it avoids duplicate keys, and also because it offers marginally better support for a larger number of users (primarily NorDe).

* Most appropriate in the sense that they're backed up by actual implementations.

However, with all that being said, I would like to add that something similar to your suggestion (R3 \|, R4 `~) does have merit in the case where a user would want to use the US ANSI logical layout on a 60% keyboard with an ISO physical layout. In that case, putting the tilde key to the right of 1.25u Shift would make sense, although it's not supported by standard US ISO layout implementations on PC and would require remapping firmware-side. I think this is something that could be worth keeping in mind when re-evaluating kitting best practices in the future, so thank you for indirectly bringing it to my attention.

I think this is something that could be worth keeping in mind when re-evaluating kitting best practices in the future, so thank you for indirectly bringing it to my attention.

I think you're getting it - almost perfectly.
1. Yes, 60% keyboard where esc replaces `~ (also applicable to 65%)
2. Yes, I meant firmware remap
By using R3`~ & R4\| I can still have direct access to `~ (not through FN layer) that has been relegated by esc.
I think this is good reason but you may ask why not R4`~ & R3\|
Here comes:
- cyrillic layout where Ё is mapped onto `~
- arabic layout where ذ is mapped onto `~
Just try swapping (firmware remap) any english letter with `~ on 60%/65% keyboard and you'll know what I mean. This actually is applicable to some other languages/scripts as well - accessing normal letters via FN layer is iritating.
There is one case where R4`~ & R3\|  does make sense - MAC ISO keyboard.
On MAC ISO Ё is mapped onto \| (arabic MAC layout is completely different animal).
Well, that is why I do use ISO (non-UK) remapping to R3`~ & R4\|
it helps even with latin only legends.

This is beautiful! Very nice colours!

What I'd like to see:
1. A full Calcite base kit instead of an alternate alphas kit
2. You have numpad enter in the Pyrite accent kit, why not in the novelties?
3. Split space. 2.25U and 2.75U.

So that you'd have a better view of how the novelties would look on a 65% board like this Reasonable65:

-added renders of Lazurite (base kit) with High Renaissance Novelties
-added renders of Ultramarine (full blue base kit) with High Renaissance Novelties

That ISO enter novelty rocks. I would really get that kit with ISO UK support (2" 3£ and '@ #~ keys at minima) - as always spending $200+ on a keyset means some higher expectations like not having duplicate symbols..
