[IC] DSA PetriKeys ✨ | Vendors Added + Discord
« on: Thu, 09 September 2021, 19:57:44 »


DSA PETRIKEYS

Hello! Welcome to the IC for DSA PetriKeys, a keycap set inspired by bioluminescent petri dishes.

The gradient colors were chosen based off of the greens and blues I found in bioluminescence.
The white balances everything out while alluding to the image of a clean laboratory.
All of the mod icons are custom, and are based off of the rounded shapes of the petri dishes.
This set will be doubleshot SP DSA.




Please fill out the IC Form if you're interested/have feedback!

Excited to see the IC launched for this set!! Gorgeous colours and elegant icons. The renders look great (especially that polycarb ergodox) and I love that there's ergo support! glwic :D

The icons are wonderful!! I love how sleek and modern and minimal they are. They really match the overall vibe of the set! Would be neat to see the molds used in future sets, too (more icon mod options for SP DSA sets, please!) Great design and colors.

Science theme and colors are fun!
40s kit is really tempting
Novelties are really really fun! ( maybe a few more of them? )

Boring suggestion - Mono mods. It could potentially increase the number of people that would be interested in the set. It would also twist my arm to get the to fun looking 40s kit and not feel like I bought the same theme 2 times.

Good job on making something that feels different

Love the colors and mono hangul.
Nice mod icons.
The ergo kitting though, it's too barebone and doesn't support a lot of other similar layout.

Any chance of including an international kit with ES support (such as this) or even better, Norde and South kits?

Anyway, could everyone stop creating beautiful keysets? (I love the colours and the icons are really nice!) At this rate, next year I'll be bringing a different keyset to the office depending on the day of the month  :p

Thanks for the feedback! I have gotten a few messages about the ergo kitting and will definitely look into adding legends for the next kitting iteration.

Nice set, but at the moment there's too much inconsistency between legends. For example, why are the square & curly brackets huge and almost touching each other, while the semi colon & colon are tiny and far apart? Why are some circular legends quite big (eg. nav keys) while other circular legends are much smaller (eg. cog). Why are forward slash and backslash different sizes? Does it really make sense to use a capslock icon that looks more related to the ctrl icon than it does to the shift icon? Why is numpad minus a thinner line weight than numpad plus? Why is the asterisk over the 8 so heavy, while the numpad asterisk is barely more than a dot? These are all small issues to be sure, but there are just so many of them.

I'd consider getting a kit or two of these as I love DSA, and this is attractive on the whole with a nice font and some good icons. But only if the design receives a bit more care and attention.

Hello hello! Thank you for the detailed feedback~

I definitely agree with you in the inconsistencies for the legends, and will work to fix those for the next kitting iteration. For the alphas, I will be using SP's default font so for the physical product, everything there should be lined up and sized perfectly. (I will still be working on my visualizations of it on my end though). For the custom mod icons, I will work on fixing the inconsistencies. Thanks again!

To pile on, the Hangul is _very_ thin which looks awkward. I think having substantial legends will make this set really pop.

The colorway on this is stunning, and I love the hangeul styling. DSA isn't usually my thing but I'd try it for this.
