[IC] Yunjing Deskmats
« on: Tue, 15 February 2022, 01:27:26 »


Inspiration

Welcome to Yunjing, Keebs Club at UCI’s first IC and desk mat project. We were inspired by Asian architectural scenery and moon gateway iconography, and it resulted in this negative space design. Keebs Club is a mechanical keyboard enthusiast club at UC Irvine recently formed this year. Deskmat is designed by noodabooda

~~~~~~[UPDATE 4/17/2022]~~~~~~

Hello everyone! It's been a while since we've announced this project, and we just wanted to update everyone on our progress. We have since received two batches of prototypes from two different manufacturers. We are fairly confident on which manu we are going with, but we have made some minor color changes that we are waiting for from our third (and hopefully final) batch of prototypes. These changes are primarily to the background and inner circle shade on all the mats in order to maintain the best quality relative to our renders. Unfortunately, with the public health situation in china right now, our protos are a bit held up on their way to us, but we are planning to get everything started shortly after receive them. We hope to get more information about the group buy timing, price etc. out to everyone soon. Here is an album of our better protos attached below. Again, please stay tuned as more details are to come soon :D

I'm pretty invested in the chrysanthemum, but I'm also pretty down for the light mode.
