lowercase alphas on DSA are always great
edit: I'm looking at this set again and I feel like I would be down for an extra alpha kit in reverse colorway. :)

pastel blue!!!

the base kit is very close to having physical ergo support (10x1.5u, 3x2u - backspace, 2u shift, 2u spacebar, vs 12x1.5u and 4x2u required) - novelties round out the 1.5us, any chance of getting a 4th 2u to round it out? (Otherwise the 2u enters from the numpad kit works, actually)

The pastel color scheme and chunky icons certainly capture the theme well.

But many of the keycaps look out of place because of their much thinner line weight and generic styling. Not just the nav cluster (which you mentioned), but the number row, function keys, and all the punctuation/math keys.

Also, the horizontal line inside the numlock icon makes it not look like a lock IMO.

Big fan of DSA as a profile and your choice of colours is also great!

I would personally take a brighter background and lower the brightness, as the legends are kinda hard to read on the white.

I'm not sure how deliberate this was, but I would kind of prefer if the characters were aligned at their baselines / had matching x-heights, instead of being aligned at their tops+bottoms. To me, it looks like the 'g', 'y', and 'j' are raised above their surrounding letters, and the 'b' and 'd' are lower than the other characters on their rows. I'm thinking partially of KAT PBJ, where the lettering feels like it sits fairly evenly, despite the characters realistically being different heights.

But goodness me, the colors look really good together!

Yeah, all of the characters are geometrically center aligned. I'll see what can be done for evenness.

Pitch me some ideas! I'm open to changing stuff up, I don't know much about ergo.
Blanks are in an effort to keep the kit cheap (as the base will be relatively expensive due to mold making.)
I'll be adding a question to my IC about ergo icons though.

I like how soft this looks, though will have to pass because I'd prefer DSS to DSA. Just one concern though - are you sure your renders are colour accurate? For example, here's the blue on SP website. It's a lotttt darker than the render.



I have set of chips from SP myself and the IRL chips look even darker, as the sample images of the chips online are very brightly lit. I hope you have the samples so that you can colour match to your renders!

Ah, I strengthened the lighting on most of my newer renders along with changing the environment without re-matching. Thanks for catching that for me! I do have chips and I will be re-matching all renders for the next update.

I'm not an expert myself, so I suggest you to contact NoPunIn10Did regarding ergo kitting.
He's one of the most knowledgeable as far as I know.

Hey misononyan, thank you very much for showing your design and doing this IC. I really like the colors and the lowercase letters, looks great. Iso and international support is also greatly appreciated ;)
My only complain is the iso enter novelty, I feel like the spoon isn't enough. There is so much space, you could play arround with multiple berries or a bowl with berries, just an idea tho.

Hey there, I filled out the ic form!
I think this set looks great and I agree with the user above. The iso enter on the novelties does fill a bit empty. Can't wait to see updates and hopefully a deskmat  :eek:

You had me at 'Berry' and 'NorDe'. Instabuy. I need this lovely blue like SO much.

Only improvement I could see is if it was possible to get a full plate of the blues, and have alphas (+NorDe), too, in blue. But the white/blue combo looks so good in the renders that one really shouldn't complain - and it comes with NorDe!!! *dances a tiny viking dance*

there is likely to be some kind of follow up in a similar vein to this set in the DSS profile in the future
no plans for this exact colorway in anything but DSA
