I'd remove one of the two 1u spacebars from the spacebar kit. The second one is only really used for ortholinear layouts, which are not really supported here.

I recommend adding accent arrows to either base or nov or bar kit. Also, iso novelties seem unrelated to other novs because they're not space objects. I really like the colors in general.

Novelties need work. It is hard to tell what some of them are and the way they are grouped thematically is a little confusing.
If you goal is to represent the universe - I would focus on more space objects and things and remove the man made objects.
Consider pushing the theme of your novelties more star gazer centric or universe centric. Right now it is man made stuff and universe stuff. The universe through the human gaze could be a cool idea. There are a crap ton of space novelties out there so you have to be on point - GMK Apollo did it well. GMK Godspeed did an ok job.

Colorway is good. The deep and muted tones work for me. The accent color isn't my thing. Personally I think the yellow accent could be either more white and or more saturated to the sun color. Notice the text that you used on your banner pops more than the actual keycap. Those two colors make more sense to me and you already chose them. If you are going for a white L9 might actually work really well and it is a GMK stock color which would save turn around time. If you invert the blues you have it is almost exactly L9. High contrast can be good.

If you are tackling the universe it may be hard to know where to start.
Huge personal preference - I would much rather have a backspace labeled black hole than a picture of a black hole. Since you already have Icon mods text novelties could be fun.
Enter -> Orbit
Shift -> Phase
Cap -> Zenith
Delete -> Eclipse

You get the idea - Good luck with your first set.

please include numpad in base, not including it will make little to no difference in the price of the kit, and the people that actually want numpad will end up paying more than if you just included it in base.

other than that it looks decent

Love the theme and the colors.
I agree with the novelties comments for the man made objects; you could put a couple of stars orbiting each other (binary or tertiary system or one eating the other) or a supernova or kilonova.
Also, I would like the numpad in base, but it's not a dealbreaker for me.

I would agree with both of the most common criticisms of no numpad in base and the novelties being a bit off theme. But that deskmat is very sexy to me.

I like the minimal + basic 40% support basekit.
Numpad's gonna hit the MOQ anyway if enough people are interested.
When 99% of the IC/GB are TKL or smaller, I think this is the basekit more people would prefer.

Deskmat is gorgeous, colors are very very nice and novelties look very good although some of them might be ‘too generic’.

Now, given that you decided to add Ñ to the NordeUk kit (unlike most sets nowadays), you might want to rename it to ÑordeUK ;) wink wink

I like this set, the colors are nice and easy to combine with multiply keyboards colors.

Just two thinghs:
First, the ISO enter novelty could be better, in my opinion, it doesn't match the theme of the universe at all, at least as you have been representing in the set.
The second one is mostly a question, What does the deskmat mean?
I like minimal things but I don't get it. ;D

I love every single thing about this! Even the font you used for the Universe logo. Well done!

I wonder if we could also get the gold color as a modifier kit for other keys. I'd love the function keys, Control, Shift, etc in that colorway.

  • The R3 1.75u Enter key is not necessary for 40s support in the base kit and should be removed.
  • R1 1u Backspace is very rarely used, and including it in a GMK base kit where space is at a premium is not justifiable (especially since there's a R1 Delete key that can be used as a viable replacement).
  • You'd be better off adding 2× 1.5u Super and a second 1u Alt key instead of those two keys. This would allow your set to cover Mac and OG HHKB bottom rows, which more and more people seem to be asking for nowadays.
  • Either that, or add a second 2.25u Shift — the key that's currently missing for physical compatibility with 660 layouts. While 660 layouts are less popular now than they used to be a few years ago, physical compatibility still takes precedence over legend correctness (and Mac users still have the option of using 1.5u novelties in place of the aforementioned keys).
  • I also suggest changing the R3 1.75u Control legend to an icon () for a more consistent look.

Your other kits look pretty good. No complaints there. :)
