Hex codes are a terrible way to determine colors, you should find RAL (ideally) or Pantone chips for color matching

legends seem a bit hard to read, also this is rather similar to Iconographic (though with different themes for the novelties of course)

Big fan of Kimi no Nawa too but don't really see too much of a connection between the colors and the movie besides the background in the one scene.

Also PBT Musubi, another Kimi no Nawa based set ran just a few months ago so not sure of how many people would go in on another set based on the movie so soon. There's also overlap with some of the novelties in that set

nonsensical colors, that have nothing to do with anime
colors are just a little rearranged in comparison to GMK Iconigraphic

Does having a few swapped colors from GMK Iconographic, which is currently in group buy, make this an acceptable design?

Other way around. Iconographic looks much better, and the IC was earlier so I will consider that one the better one :PepeLose:

I have slight protanopia (form of colour blindness, 10% of males have it), so I might be wrong and the difference in hue between the legends and cap is larger than I can see.
Either way, I can barely see the legends. Is that the same for regular eyed people, too?

Am I right in assuming the 2nd escape key in the base kit should be pink or grey and not a duplicate of the other escape key?

Also its like icongraphic but because its actual letters now its barely legible imo.

Like the rough colour scheme though just without the green  for me.

In conclusion, I completely accept that maybe it looks a lot with Iconographic, I donít copy from it, it was only a coincidence, I knew about his project but I was unfair if my colors work. To summarize Iíll do a redesign, and Iíll start with this new color scheme, please review it, together we go through the project, thanks, I truly appreciate your time!

To be honest I dont think the way you've taken the "redesign" has really helped since its kinda just become a completely different set (bar novelties).

Also to me doesn't really have any correlation to the movie in any way, and especially doesn't fit the name really.

I'd personally think it better to just work with what you currently have for the name and start working on something with colours more consistent of an actual twighlight sky and then return to the idea later rather than attempting to throw multiple completely different sets till people eventually say "that one".

Please stop banging your head against the wall trying to make something work and actually work on coming up with a cohesive and relevant color scheme for the movie..

Your redesign looks like Retrocast: https://kono.store/products/gmk-retrocast

Stop rushing! Designing takes time. And you need to do a lot more research before moving forward.

My biggest issue with this set is that it genuinely doesn't remind me of 'Your Name' or any of the themes associated with the movie, which makes it hard for me to grasp the inspiration or drive behind the set.

As a fan of Kimi No Na Wa, I am looking forward to the redesign. I think you shouldn't take inspiration from the entire movie at once though, and instead look at specific scenes or elements i.e. Blue/White/Green for the Movie Posters, Two Shades of Blue and then Pink from the Comet, etc.

I think the pink was the problem, now swap with green, and changed to some blue magenta (RAL 4009), to me now I can see novelties instead of rough pink.

I'm not interested in this set, but figured I would ask, why the complete absence of 1.5u novelties in every novelty kit that has been proposed? WKL + 7u is a hugely popular bottom row.

I don't know how to say this more clearly without coming off as being mean.

Please go back to the drawing board and take designing SLOWLY and thoughtfully. It's very obvious you are banging your head against the wall trying to get something to work

You're changing a new color scheme every day with no clear direction of where you want to go. Since your thought four days ago, you've had three redesigns?

That does not give confidence at all to your designs.

Join the Keycap Designer Discord and work slowly with others please.

Don't judge, this is my first project, I've worked at this a year, forget about these revised sets, I revised because I've was attacked by all, but my vision remains as it is, I'm a designer, I need minor changes for Novelties, it barely readable. The main theme remains and colors too.

Might I recommend RAL 3014 instead of RAL 4010 if you are sticking with the current colourway? Whilst not without some contrast issues it is less jarring that 4010.
There was a colourway you posted, but have since deleted, as a reply that I felt was far better.

Best of luck with IC

No one is attacking you. They just don't like your set, it's not a bid deal, people just have different taste. There are plenty of very popular sets out there that i think are either just lame and boring (most beige sets), or ugly as all hell (all yellow sets.)

I liked your original set a lot, and would probably get it. I didn't care for the "redesign" at all, and am glad you nixed it. I especially like the renders that make the gray color look more blue.

I don't care for any on the novelties, except the star, but I'm not into the "cute" themes. (I'm not a girl/feminine , and don't have kids.)

Do you have / will get a color chip for RAL 5013? every time I see something of that purported color on the best monitor I have it looks a bit different.

I like the lower contrast with the legends, hope that stays.

Couple of questions:
1.- Why GMK?
2.- This looks like GMK Iconographic, what will save your project?

Also, after reading some comments and your replies, chill! If it's your first project I understand you might not be as comfortable defending your creation as seasoned creators, but attacking commentators will not help your case either.

I don't find this set particularly interesting, and moreover, I would prefer Iconographic, but did not want to pay GMK prize for such niche color set, nor I am willing to pay premium for this one either. Best of lucks either way.
