Good Morning Geekhack,

Today I wanted to introduce you to my latest idea, GMK Deepwell!
A set inspired by Honeywell but with richer colors and a little sci fi inspiration for the kit names and deskmats!

CA:DeskHero
UK: Proto[Typist]
EU:Mykeyboard.eu
KR: SwagKeys

Pricing



Colors
The colors are all custom RAL colors, the red is a deeper red than anything GMK offers for stock colors, it's definitely in between RO1 and RO2.
The white is a more pure white somewhere in between WS1 and WS2.
The dark grey is a color thatís right in between CR and N9 itís not as dark as CR and not as light as N9! It's a very charcoal colored grey.

Kitting

Interstellar Kit

Standard support, including an extra Alice B, and UK ISO

Super Nova Kit

Sci Fi themed novelties designed by Sour

Outer Space Kit

Provides accent spacebars and additional spacebars for those split boards.

the colours are nice, that alternate base kit is basically inverse Burgundy. Still not sure where the sci-fi twist is at.

If this is going to be a "sci-fi inspired" set, I would add some sci-fi novelties so that description makes sense.

If there's enough interest in the set I'm more than willing to make a novelty kit with some sci fi related icons. :)

You did it again.

Perfect implementation of Honeywell in Cherry profile's curves IMO.

And I am glad you haven't add 40% kit. Don't get me wrong, but I think that decision not to go with it in your own sets is right.

Please consider adding R3 PgUp, R4 PgDn to both kits, for covering modern 65% and 75% layouts. Although there are a few more minor tweaks that I would make, I think that this change would be the most beneficial with how the kits are currently set up.

Nice! Particularly like the dark version; I've been thinking about designing something similar for a while as Burgundy was just a little too bright for me.

My only criticism would be that the custom white is probably unnecessary as it will increase cost and colour-matching time for very little difference in the final project.

Void kit definitely.
The longer I stare at it the better it looks.
Is there any chance of adding exotic keys: R3:Tilde/GraveAccent and/or 1.75U:R3:ESCAPE ?

Sorry, the goal of the Void kit was to be a smaller base that still kept the vibe of the theme, it was never the main goal of the set. There will not be a numpad for the kit. Sorry!

Any chance of having an EU vendor (I mean, from the European Union) for this set? I really loved GMK Fundamentals, but I decided to not join because the european vendor's is from the UK and on 2021 I'd have to pay tax for it.

It looks amazing. GLWIC!

No vendors have been announced yet for this set. Just because Fundamentals only had a UK vendor doesn't mean all my sets are going to be like that. My next set running KAT Crusader has Mykeyboard.Eu as the EU vendor. I'll take everything into consideration when contacting vendors for this set.

The keyset from the C70 was a bit of inspiration for the set, while C70 used all gmk stock colors, I have worked to use custom RALs that are not the same as the stock colors for the Interstellar kit.
