(IC) GMK Fox - GB is LIVE!!!
« on: Sun, 29 November 2020, 14:11:01 »
**UPDATE 1 April 21**
GROUP BUY IS LIVE!!
 



Imagine yourself walking deep in a forest, feeling the autumn air as the cool breeze flows through the branches, heavy with change. The deciduous trees are just beginning to transform their leaves to flame, the rest still shady, undulating oceans of green. You breathe deeply, appreciating the dense scent of warm woods, rich, mossy loam, and spicy pines. Tired from hours of walking through the leaves and fungi, you are searching for something of which you aren’t yet certain. Weary feet require a pause, so you stop and sit in the crook of a forked tumble of roots, wondering if you will have the energy to get home before dark, but still yearning to find that which you seek.

Suddenly you hear a rustling in the ferns and see a flash of burnt sienna tipped with cream disappearing into the thick underbrush. You carefully move the feathery stems aside to reveal the fresh indentations of paws in the dark soil. About to turn and leave, you notice two intelligent, bright eyes regarding you with otherworldly curiosity. Silently you return the gaze, and in those quiet moments of reflection you find the answers to your questions, your search now complete. You feel refreshed, invigorated, transformed. As the fox melts back into its surroundings, you are left grateful for this tiny interaction with the magic of the forest and the wild spirit of its creatures.


It is this transformative energy of change that inspires my first keycap set. Using complimentary deep green teal and burnt orange, I draw heavily on the cozy cottagecore aesthetic of early fall. This is when foxes are still active yet already fluffy with their winter coats, as the world around us silently decays.

Great looking set! Any chance of a 40s kit? GMK Bushido's nomad kit is a good example of one. Would also be cool if the R4 leaf novelties could have mirrored versions for one of them so like the GMK Olive olive branch novelties.

You should probably change the second question of your survey to be a set of check boxes instead of a radio button. Right now it forces the survey taker to select only one kit.

I like this and now I don't feel so bad about skipping out on GMK Retrocast.  :thumb:

Kitting is great too. I'm loving the minvan support, I like the alt-mods, and the novelties. I would like to see a 1.25u Tab key but other than that, seeing ALL THE THINGS crammed into a base kit is great.

Edit: nevermind that appears to be a 1.5u backspace.
I would love to see some proper 40's support in this.

I'm not a huge fan of mixing text mods and symbols but at least they don't share a row. Would prefer to see all of one or the other, but this can easily be remedied with the novelties kit.

As is I would definitely get all 4 kits. I kind of wish there was a dark alphas kit as well but I think that might just be a bit overkill.

Also, why Alice B in base kit but no minibars? I wouldn't be upset if the B migrated to the spacebars kit but whatever works best for the set I suppose.

Dope. Who doesn't like fox's? (even after that awful music video.. that shall not be named.)
 Desk mat's are awesome, but the eyes on the fox in the middle one look a little off.
I'd actually prefer a dark alpha OVER the light mod, but either way I'm good.

Nice set with neat colors. However I would like to advise caution regarding the alternate modifiers kit. It'll be very expensive (probably around 89$ or 99$ mark at MOQ100) and will have difficulties reaching said MOQ. Additionally, the price of the novelties kit also suffers very much from having to carry a lot more keys. I'd ballpark the current variation at around 69$ GB pricing. Spacebars is also rather big, and I would remove the modifier colored bars at least, the remaining kit should be doable at around 35$.

Hope this doesn't come across as too criticizing, just my 2 cents as I see new designers being too ambitious often times and creating expansive sets that are having troubles hitting MOQ's and wish that you are able to avoid that here.

Best wishes for the IC and hopefully eventual GB!

Hi! Thank you so much for your interest and comment. I am definitely open to adding a 40s kit - I will be making some amendments to the IC form in the next few weeks after it's gotten a chance to get some views in order to gather some data on how much interest there is for that. If it looks like it would meet MOQ I can certainly add it. Stay tuned for IC updates! :)

Hi! Thank you so much! That cozy vibe is totally what I'm going for.

So my original kitting thought process was to have the second B in the base kit so that Alice users could use the shift keys for their space bars if they don't care about legends, and then that gives them the option to get the space bar kit if they do care about legends, or the novelty kit if they want novelty space bars. I will be making some updates to the IC form in the next few weeks, and will make sure to add that question to it. If enough Alice users want to see space bars in the base kit and it won't significantly impact overall pricing - I know these kits are beasts - I can certainly add the space bars to the base. Stay tuned for IC form updates! :)

Hi! Thank you so much! I really appreciate all of this feedback - these types of comments really help with honing in the kits to make them the best they can be.
I am going to be updating the IC form in the next few weeks and will have questions to specifically address both the 40s kit and the Alice space bars. If it looks like there is enough interest for 40s to hit MOQ I can add the kit. For Alice, I had added the B to the base kit so any users who don't care about legends can use the shift keys, and then that gives them the options to buy the space bars kit if they do or the novelties kit if they want novelty space bars. However, if enough Alice users provide feedback that they do want the space bars in the base kit and it won't raise the price too badly, I can certainly add them. Stay tuned for IC form updates! :)

Haha it really can be an ear worm, right?
I've actually heard quite a few people mention the eyes on Desk Mat 2, so I will be making an update to it to hopefully lessen the creep factor as that was definitely not what i was going for haha!  :D
Also, i'll add a Dark Alpa interest question to the IC form in the new few weeks, so if there is enough interest in it, that is something I can consider adding!

Thank you so much! I really appreciate this. I do love the smooshy cuteness of kawaii, but my personal aesthetic is way more natural and had wanted to give people that option.
Also, just to fangirl for a second, i bought Rainy Day not just for the beautiful colorway but because I loved the inspiration and way you presented the IC. That definitely had a heavy influence on how I presented Fox.

Thank you so much for this! It is super helpful for thinking through the process and I'm trying to sponge everything I can from successful veterans like you. Kitting is (obviously) the most difficult part of this for me: trying to get everyone what they want/need while also trying to keep the costs in the realm of reality. I just want to make everyone happy which I realize most likely isn't possible! It was kind of that choice between give everything in giant kits or break it down to a ton of smaller kits. I kind of said "screw it" and went giant (go big or go home, right?) but that may end up being an issue - being my first kit I'm learning a ton on the fly and I assume this will be part of that (hopefully not so painful) learning curve haha.

I really really like it. Really, but somehow I have locked myself into the NorDe world. I just don't like all the brackets next to the enter where my åöä's would be, and I need to know where my secondaries and tertiaries are in the number row. :( I really hope this does well, it looks like a great project to me. Maybe I need a fox deskmat at least? /Johannes

Hi! I appreciate your kind words :) I am going to update my IC form sometime next week to see how much interest there is in a NorDE kit. Sadly I fear that it wouldn't hit MOQ, but I'd love to gather the data just in case.
And no one can ever have too many desk mats, right?;)

Hi! Thank you very much for your interest :) Yeah, the kitting was the hardest part, especially this being my first set (hopefully it gets easier!). My thought process is trying to get the most people the ability to use the base kit and then they have the option to buy additional kits, rather than forcing the point. But I will be adding some IC form questions next week and as I start talking to vendors getting some feedback from them, so the kitting may change with new info. I do hope to still be able to deliver a chonky base kit that satisfies the majority of people and still hit MOQ!

+1 for the fox silhouette. Or some cute little foxes. Is just sad the the ISO’s are empty and the ANSI enter has cute designs I really hope you can add some cute designs for ISO.

Totally understood! I hate excluding anyone and would love to be able to make sure ISO is covered too. Once I get some feedback from my form update I can adjust if there's enough interest.

The renders currently in the thread are out of date and using 180 80 10 for the alpha color, NOT 180 80 05 as listed in the thread. Until Bone&Bee updates the thread with the new renders, here's a quick preview:

The new renders looks so good! I was also a bit concerned with first renders because the alphas were super mint colored and more towards the cool color temperature, which im not a big fan of.
Like the new alphas so much more, makes it easier to pair with boards or match with other sets without making it look out of place!

I went for the dark base plus novelties. For keyboard I have high demand for 75% cuz I'm a developer so function row is a must. After I saw the gmmk pro annoucement at 170 price tag, I knew I must have it. Still waiting for a EU proxy.

These new renders and kitting looks amazing. I'm not the person to just buy base kits because novelties adds so much to the set, But if i were to get just the base i would want an orange escape and an orange ansi and iso enter included. Don't know how would it would affect cost. An white on orange fox paw as a novelty would also be very nice i think.

Very welcome change the the deskmat aswell, the fox is super cute now. Can't wait for gb!

These new renders and kitting looks amazing. I'm not the person to just buy base kits because novelties adds so much to the set, But if i were to get just the base i would want an orange escape and an orange ansi and iso enter included. Don't know how would it would affect cost. An white on orange fox paw as a novelty would also be very nice i think.

Very welcome change the the deskmat aswell, the fox is super cute now. Can't wait for gb!

Sad to see no mint ISO enter novelty in the final kits but will definitely be getting in on that base and alt set

Hi all! Updated colors, desk mats, board renders, and finalized kits have been added to the IC!
Can I propose bring those standard accent orange key back to base kit? People will normally go for base kit the most. Remove accent keys from base may not be a good choice....Also, will there be novelties for ISO enter?

Hi! Thanks so much for the feedback. I wanted to address everyone at once so I'm not spamming the post haha.

The orange MIGHT be put back into the base, but it's definitely going to come down to cost as I want the kits to be affordable, but also offer the most bang for the buck. Waiting on quotes now, so we'll see how that affects everything. I'll update if it get changed.

To address the ISO enter novelty: this has probably been one of the components I've been most torn on with the set. I really would love to offer one, and had the idea of a hopping fox to fit the key format better. The issue has been that i've already had to cut the amount of larger novelty molds from the kit due to the high cost. Additionally, I'd posted the IC questionnaire to specifically gauge interest for the ISO novelties. Out of the 120ish people that responded, less than 10% had said a definitive yes to the ISO novelty, everyone else said no or they didn't care either way. As much as I would love to offer it to make the few people who said yes happy (and, honestly just to have a hopping fox key bc CUTE) the cost would be prohibitive as it is a large key and an additional mold.

I hope this all makes sense and I haven't disappointed everyone too much. My goal with this set was to make as many people as happy as possible with the kitting, and I truly hope I accomplished that so far.

everyone who wants orange this n that in the base kit-adding another color to a kit adds a pile to cost, versus just adding a key of the incumbent colors.

i think this works if the nov kit has at least MOQ 150 (seems doable?), because MOQ 100 might be an 80$ nov kit w that many keys and another custom color.

Yeah this is exactly the spot i'm in and why i'm waiting to get the quotes back. I'll put the orange accents in whichever set it would be best priced in with the most likelihood of hitting MOQ. I know all of the sets are beasts which will be pricey no matter what and I'd have an easier time if I cut them all down. I'm stuck in the vortex of "kill your darlings" right now with some of these decisions haha

Any chance of having the 2.25+2.75 space bars in the base kit instead? The space bar kit looks like it's gonna be quite pricey with that many long bars.

I agree that at least orange esc and enter (ISO/ANSI) should be in base kit. I'm not really into novelties, but I like the contrast that these 2 keys give to the entire look of the set and having to buy the novelties kit just to get these would be deal breaker for me

I'm really bummed all the orange has left the base kits :c It's not 'fox' anymore at all if you don't get extension kits. I still planned on getting the novelties, but now it feels like the base doesn't speak to the theme at all.

I think the base kit should be the most appealing kit in all group buy due to sales and it should represent the theme. Remove accent fox keys seems very unwise because then the base kit becomes gmk forest or somethings.
Also, please consider moving the 2 mod color space bar from the space kit to alt alphas because people normally don't use mod color space bars in their setup.

FINAL final kits are updated! Just confirming prices before adding that to the IC, but were actually able to add the orange back to the base kit and still get it to be a fair price! :) BC i agree, without the orange in the base, it's no longer Fox.

It's definitely shiny in the pics bc it's the master and doesn't have the patina yet. the actual keys for sale will be way less blingy!
