Title: [IC] GMK Blink (Black & Pink)
Post by: jebbra on Sun, 04 August 2019, 13:34:20
Hi GH, long time no see

For you who listen to K-pop the name must be ring some bells already :p

[attachimg=1]

Yes this is as obvious as the name, GMK with black and pink in colors and Hangul as the sublegends, inspired by your one and only Blackpink.

The kit:

Base Kit

[attachimg=2]

It pretty simple and straightforward kit, of course this isn't locked and can be modified as per community request—as long as it makes sense in general.
And yes, there's some legends that I attempt to change to fit my personal vision—one line icon + text (Tab, CapsLock, Backspace, R3 Ctrl), let me know what do you guys think about this change

Novelties Kit

In progress...

Assembly Kit

[attachimg=3]

TBH I don't have confidence this kit can make it, but I bet there will be some peoples who ask for this, so here it is for some discussion and vote

I'm a Colemak user but I don't think colevrak kit will make it in this particular design :-X
Even I doubt Assembly will make it lol but let's see!


Just FYI the N and C are flipped in some renders :P

Good luck with the set Jebbra!

It's a homage to Blackpink logo, which use inverted C and N (and also "unbrigded" A)

I'll complete the keys in Assembly kit, since the one I posted now only to show it *might* happen. Assembly supposed to be covering ortho, ergodox, and some 40s

Yeah it will be in consideration too but so far if it's not the new icon + text legend, I prefer text only.


No ESC in black?

I don't think it's needed? AFAIK Esc color always come in mods color and accent color, and we don't have accent color here

Pink is the manliest Colour; since most men don't dare to wear pink!

I would suggest to split the base kit a bit... too many unnecessary keys for most people -> high base price.

Post by: jebbra on Wed, 18 September 2019, 22:33:13
Long time no update, my bad :-[

First, the novelties:

Been working on some illustration based on the group's image

[attachimg=1]

Definitely open for discussion about anything on this!


Second, the kit update:

[attachimg=2]

Mainly I remove the 6u (2 of them) and replace it with split space compat, as well as the second B because I see the rise in split keyboard trend lately (praise Alice :thumb:)


Third, another iteration of the mod:

Text only

[attachimg=3]

I tried another version of the mod because in a way, sometimes when I look at them text+icon they're too busy (because the double legend alphas)


Fourth, the vendor:

The Key . Co !!!
We already talked about this and hopefully we can find a release time around Q1 2020 (fingercrossed!)


That's all I have for now, please let me know what do you think :thumb:

Consideration of taking out the raised characters? It allows for a more modern look which kpop is about.

Novelties are very nice. Mods look better now too. But it would be better if the numpad is separated from the base kit.

Yes they're on novelties kit, not in the base kit

Maybe offer an auxiliary, reversed modifier set that's pink on black? Folks probably disagree with me, but those mods are _bright_

TBH I really wish this is so popular so I can make 2 versions, pink mod black alpha (like this one) and black mod with pink alpha, and both of them will differ in mod legend (one is text only another is icon only, something like that). Must be very fun to mix match them! You can make all black or all pink  :p


Definite buy. Love the novelties and the mods look better text only.

Glad you like it!


Consideration of taking out the raised characters? It allows for a more modern look which kpop is about.

Since we are 'borrowing' the already-made mould for the hangul sublegend, I think they are settled, I'm sorry.


Novelties are very nice. Mods look better now too. But it would be better if the numpad is separated from the base kit.

I found this quite a trend lately, but will they hold up in term of MoQ? or you guys just don't need 'em at all now?

Several corrections. It is not less cluttered Hangul it is just mono. Taking numpad out of base is a bad move in most sets. Including the numpad costs only about 10 more while making it separate raises it by 35-40.

LOL I'm sorry, for several years I fought for it up to the point I give up. From maker perspective it's so hard to reach the MoQ except on MD.

The detached numpad kit that become the trend lately is making me confused too. The price cut isn't that justified for numpad buyer plus the numpad can be used for filling the gap on small ortho board too.

Oh it called mono? I just name it less-cluttered just because the removed upper legend make them...less-cluttered :p pardon me.
