Splitting dark alphas into it's own base kit is in consideration. The 8008 deskmats are cool! However they weren't the inspiration behind the design.

Make an ISO-FR variant and I'm sold !

Being SA profile, MOQs are quite high. If there's enough demand then ISO-FR and other locale coverage may be introduced.

This looks like the GMK Minimal x GMK Modern Dolch photo I saw on IG by ninjapirate9901.
Also the Deskmat looks inspired by Modern Dolch however I think your approach ist pretty nice and it is different enough.
It is a pretty nice combo and I like to see that combo happen, sadly it is SA but that is preference.

Thank you for your good wishes. There are certainly hopes to be repeating this colourway and design in Cherry profile keycaps in the future.

This ticks a lot of boxes for me with teal as an accent and uniform SA. As an ortho user, I don't mind the separate dark alphas, makes it cheaper if you don't care about the mods in the base kit.

I also like the idea to just using simple geometric shapes for the novelties, but don't really like the inclusion of the Valknut. It just has too much political baggage for me to have that on a board without context. Maybe the theme could be expanded/deepened by leaning on some more mathematical concepts, e.g. a series of keys with dot, line, square, cube or a Moebius strip, or the first iterations of the Koch snowflake (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koch_snowflake) or some other simple fractal (don't know how far you can go on a keycap with this).

Thank you very much for your kind feedback. I will certainly take this into consideration, as I was unaware of the political stigma behind that symbol. Moebius Strip and Koch Snowflake designs were made, though they proved a little loud for the design language of Geoma.

Yeah, I can see that. The Valknut has not been completely co-opted by white supremacists (depending on the local context, of course), but the association for me is unfortunately very strong.

I love the concept though and look forward to the GB!

This is so good, I love it! SA r3 is my favorite and this whole color way is just fantastic. Two things:
a) The IC form errors out for me?
b) Please consider adding either a 1.25 enter or a 1.25 novelty for those of us with dimple-layout boards :)

In for a whole pile of kits in any case!

I feel you could get very close to those black and white RALs using stock Signature Plastic colors, if you go down that route to use them as a manu, which I believe you have to if you want uniform r3.

SP SA MOQs don't have to be high. They send a spreadsheet with MOQ starting at 10.


I do like this set but being a uniform profile, I think you could consolidate some kits, like the 40's and ortho. Both 40's ortho and staggered could get by with what's largely in the base plus a few extra keys. I'd check the 40's Discord if you need help or just send me a PM.

R3 and great colors and icons, I'm in on this for sure.

I second combining 40s with something, as the set stands right now it looks more attractive to just buy the base kit and make do, vs buy an addon kit that doesnt give much additional compat value. Also heads up that your ortho bars are marked as 1.75u but should be 2u.

This is definitely inspired by some sets as people have mentioned, not sure how you can differentiate yourself, but perhaps you can start by changing up the deskmats? Best of luck to you, not many SA sets these days.

Your interest check form wasn’t submitting for me, so I’ll copy and paste my comments here.

The dark alphas are amazing. My interest in this set 100% hinges on mono legends though. E.g. . , / ; 1 2 etc. Like the SA Ice Cap mono legends kit. There are so few row 3 sets, I’m so excited for this. Legitimately the dark alphas are phenomenal.

Please keep it row 3 SA.

The web server has been misbehaving, and has been returning 403 errors and not submitting responses.

I have made a Google Form to replace the old form:

This is definitely inspired by some sets as people have mentioned, not sure how you can differentiate yourself, but perhaps you can start by changing up the deskmats? Best of luck to you, not many SA sets these days.

I'm quite new to the bespoke keyboard scene. This kit is just a culmination of my own personal tastes, and largely uninfluenced by other kits/deskmats in similar colourways. My main inspirations have been those in the KAT/KAM profile in terms of custom modifiers.

Can you add a dark numpad please?
Won’t let me submit the IC form. Any way you can add a base dark kit and dark numpad?

There is certainly a strong demand for a Dark base kit and adding dark alphas to the numpad. I'll definitely be looking to implement these suggestions in the near future.

Only things I'd ask for is 2x 1.5u Super and 2x 1u Alt for HHKB/Mac.

Will explore implementing this into the Base Kit


Any ideas or preference on the manufacturer for the set?

I will be discussing with both Signature Plastics and MaxKey. Signature Plastics is my first choice, but manufacturing timeline, pricing for custom tooling, quality & finish will be factors in deciding on the final manufacturer.

For those interested in sculpted SA, cherry profile, or additional profiles

There are certainly hopes to be running the Geoma colourway and design in other sculpts and profiles. Please kindly submit the IC Form with your preference so I may gauge the interest moving forward.

Liking the color but any chance for ergo kit?

Ergo is definitely something I'm interested in exploring. Consolidating the 40s/Ortho takes priority, however as I understand it, quite a lot of the coverage overlaps so I may implement 40s/Ortho/Ergo within the same kit.

I feel the same, I really like this. Just wanted to also voice my support for uniform SA. I use a non-standard layout and not having to worry about row profiles is a plus for any keyset. I also just really like the uniform feel, tbh. Hope this stays uniform. Putting the 40s/Ortho kits together and maybe adding a few ergo keys makes sense to me, though. Would definitely get a kit like that.
