"I made this in my garage" deskmat

Update #1: Wow this was more responses than we expected, we love hearing your feedback and seeing how many of you like our design! Thank you everyone for the support so far!! By popular demand, we've considered and now have decided to add a Dark Grey with Rainbow variation as well as adding the iconic purple in between the blue and red!



Introduction + Inspiration

Hello everyone!!
My name's Kevin and this is our debut deskmat design that we’re very proud to show off!
Inspired by the Apple Macintosh, we present the first interest check for the "I made this in my garage" Deskmat!

After having been in the mechanical keyboard hobby/community for a handful of years now, I’ve strayed away from flashy colors and loud designs. Over the past year or so, I’ve become more interested in simple designs and colors such as old school korean customs, beige keysets and elusive vintage dyesubs (let me find a cheap G81-3000SAV pls). So we thought what would be better to pair with those aesthetics than a classic beige deskmat inspired by one of the most successful computers of the 20th century!

As much as we love how it looks, we would love to hear what you guys have to say about the design!

Specifications (so far):

Thank you for supporting this project, hopefully, we can get this up and running as a group buy soon :)

A throwback to the days when Apple was actually somewhat cool ... I love it!

Although perhaps maybe a bit more yellow than the computers actually were back in the day. ;)
