[IC] GMK Purple-ish
« on: Sun, 25 April 2021, 15:55:35 »


Hi everyone! This is a set inspired by and named after a phone colorway I like a lot.
IC Form



Kits

Base

Covers 60%, 65%, 75%, TKL, 1800, and full-size boards, with terminal ISO, F13, Tsangan support, and minimal compatibility for 40s and Alice boards.

Spacebars

Provides blank Alice spacebars and support for some HHKB and split space layouts.
Considering getting rid of the off-centered bar and maybe adding accent-colored Alice bars.

Novelties

Theme: Cat collecting easter egg



Renders

CONSTELLATION by AEBOARDS


More





U80-A by RAMA WORKS


More




Pegasus by Illusion


More






Colors
More
Alpha/Mod Legends: Polycarbonate sample*
Mod/Alpha+Accent Legends: Pantone PQ-271C
Accent: Pantone 13-0630 TN

*Confirmed with Andy from GMK that this is possible to color match with, but have a few backup options just in case.
Considering getting color samples measured professionally as well to get things right.

Samples in various lighting
Mod color pantone chip and BoW reference (WS1/CR) on top of alpha sample

This is actually the exact color used on Night Runner so already matched.  ;D

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

Big fan of the neon yellow accent, helps it stand out since there are so many purple sets right now. GLWIC!

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 :)
