We're a group of friends, and we decided that we wanted to attempt to design a keycap set; After about a year of learning and designing, we present to you ePBT Basin!

We designed this set to reflect the dynamic blue-grays of the ocean. Amidst the vastness of an oceanic basin are a wide variety of colors, and we have chosen a sinking gradient to portray diving into the depths of the ocean.

It's reverse dye sub AKA five side dye sub.

guess i don't have to type this now, already been said.

kitting looks pretty good however a couple of comments:
  • i appreciate 1.5u super with 1u alt, as a mac user; i have a hard time getting excited for sets that force me to use windows keys (e.g., 1.5u alt) for tsangan bottom row. (yes, i know what each key does but i still don't like big alt keys, ok?)
  • nice to have 1.75u R2 function in addition to control (but not a must have)
  • R4 "=" can be useful for numpad, especially since it's a stand-alone kit
  • hoping you'll run samples to see how the light tan on navy works for modifiers (e.g., light on dark)

best of luck with IC  :thumb:

I like it a lot.
.....Except for the white legends on the green accent keys. It would  look way better with blue legends. Too many colors as is, especially with the gradient effect. Notice how most gradient kits don't even have different colored  mod keys...and I think this might be the 1st gradient that has different colored accent keys and mods.

We're currently working on a NORDEU set and it will be released soon, make sure to check back within a week or two!

We're currently working on fixing up the colors and adding a new alpha kit which will have blue legends instead of teal legends!

If this is supposed to be a PBT set, which i like, can it be done with Geekark? since 5 sided dye sub might not turn out well with ePBT, and ive heard the geekark has near perfect reverse dye sub. also it would keep the price down by quite a bit. The caps look great, though thats my only concern :D

This set's manufacturer is ePBT which, like the name suggests is a PBT set. Although ePBT's reverse dye-sub is relatively new I do not think there should be any problems with it. We are receiving samples in the near future and updates on this topic should be announced in the Discord server. Thank you for your concern!
