[IC] GMK Phantom R2 - Hibi Reveal - GB Jan 5th - Jan 26th
« on: Fri, 08 December 2023, 22:36:07 »






Hi there! This is your favorite appropriator; this time I'm super excited to present to all of you a second round of one of my all-time fav sets; GMK Phantom.


If you are interested in a little bit of backstory click here: 
More
GMK Phantom was the keycap set that initially introduced me to the hobby. While I was finishing GMK Mictlán back in 2021, I attempted to contact Briano (the original designer of GMK Phantom) several times to ask for his permission to rerun the set. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get in touch with him until I met my good friend Ray (@rayhhdailo - Designer of GMK Maestro, Prepress, Zimo, and many more), who was able to help me reach out to him. After obtaining Briano's blessing for this re-run, we started working on creating new novelties for the set, since Briano didn't have the original files and we wanted to add our personal touch to it. After several weeks of iteration and hard work, this is the final result. We hope you enjoy it!

I'm sold. Love the new novelties. Personally would like to see a 1u novelty on each row to provide macro support instead of having them all on r1.

I tried to sell r1 years ago for 160 and no one gave a ****.  My wife saw it in the sale pile after a week and used it.

Looking forward to R5 kit. I’d go for macro novs across row profiles too.

Is this color scheme Future Funk?

GMK Phantom's legend/accent color is definitely unique. The target was Pantone 7403 C.

The dark purples are similar, but probably not identical. Phantom used two Pantones as reference during matching, 2695 C and 2627 C - https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=95418.msg2655608#msg2655608
Judging by the photos, the dark purple doesn't perfectly match either Pantone.


Edit: added Pantone RGB example


GMK Future Funk's GB thread shows color matching progress - https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=104453.msg2939986#msg2939986
   Dark Purple base = Pantone 2695 C (one of Phantom's two reference colors)
   Alpha legends = GMK WS1 (mentioned in OP, no need to match)
   Hot Pink = Pantone 212 C
   Light Pink = Pantone 2036 C
   Yellow = Pantone 100 C
   Light Blue = Pantone 635 C


Also, GMK Regal's designer tried to match Phantom's dark purple - https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=117656.msg3131415#msg3131415
Of course, Regal's legend color is different.

Thanks dvorcol and everyone else who are excited about this set!
Never have a Future funk in my possession so I can't compare.

However, GMK can match the colors to be exact same (as Phantom R1), hence why we don't include any color info on the OP.

Hey there! We're mixing things up with a cool design inspired by the Rolls Royce Phantom for our Hibi collab. Kate totally rocked the design, as usual. We're going with two parts for this: a bottom made of anodized aluminum and a grill in PVD brass.





That's all from me, thank you!

Love to see this set making a return.

Please consider adding R3 PgUp, R4 PgDn for all of us 65%/75% users!

If you feel the base kit is getting a bit crowded, consider dropping the R2 1.5u Backspace key, as that's beyond the typical 3-key 40% support that designers include in GMK base kits.


EDIT: Never mind, I'm late. I need to learn to read, or at least not go on GH while tipsy :)
