GMK Noel
Live in April 2020 on https://gmknoel.com/

GB PAGE IS LIVE (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=105365.0)


Discord Server (https://discord.gg/adRMMUS)

Inspired by the character Noel from Celestial Method, this set aims to bring the cute and endearing theme onto GMK keycaps through light pastel colours and adorable novelty motifs.

Vendors

Pricing
Prices are in USD through Cannon Keys, for all other vendors please refer to the offical site link (https://gmknoel.com/#vendors)

Colours
Please keep in mind these images can't be 100% accurate due to camera and screen accuracy, but give an idea on the colours used

(https://i.imgur.com/DsTOTGC.jpg)

Colours were initially colour-matched with a physical sample from the source, with "Pastel Pink", "Fine Blue" and "Fitness Blue" being the final custom colours used after playing with similar colours to see which variants would work best for the set. WS2 was chosen over the typical WS1 as it provides a more cooler tone, which helps define and tie in the overall theme better.

I was referred by someone to keycaprenders.com to get images but it has issues with, as you've said, a metallic finish on the keycaps. I'll try to get better renders if possible from Kingk22

Are you referring to GMK Bento? Initially when picking colours I thought so too, but this blue and pink (which is red in bento) is a lot lighter and honestly gives a much different feel from the muted look of bento.

The contrast would be quite worrisome on this one
Do you mean contrast of alpha legends colour? The blue is similar to ePBT Fuyu so I'm hoping that won't be the case once I get better renders and fine-tune colours with Pantone chips.

That is my thought as well.....

I think the render can take a bit reflection off. It feels pretty metallic for some reason....  :D
It's a bit hard to see the actual color.

I'm asking Kingk22 if he can make renders within the coming days. It does appear to be lighter than the actual colours (as well as the metallic finish) so hopefully that will be sorted soon.

As requested, I've updated Alpha & Mod Legends to a darker blue (same colour as Noel's boots) to increase legibility and contrast. Renders are still crap though so aim to have good ones out by Friday for Base Kit and on a Rama board.

Probably not the noel you're familiar too, GMK Noel attempts to recreate the magic of Noel, a character from Sora no Method into GMK keycaps.

Update 1: New better renders confirmed for Thursday/Friday from Kingk22. Changed alpha and modifier legends for better legibility and contrast.

CableCarDesigns aanzee from keycaprenders.com sorry for the metallic look, will get it sorted by Friday

This interest check is very early at this stage, and I would like to gauge interest and any possible feedback. The colours and accents will be slightly changed from the renders (as they don't accurately depict the colours, as well as the shading being off) and I hope to get more accurate ones soon!

Plan to do
Get better renders
Collect feedback
Get Pantone Colour Chips
Finalise colours
Add Novelties (Planning on boots, flying saucer, dragon, leaf and pillow)
Finalise kits
Initiate GB!


Hope this gains traction so that BeasttrollMC can get the keyset of his dreams!

I own a Bento set (although I've yet to put it on anything) and I think it looks great, but this looks even better to me with its lighter and more muted colors.

The hiragana set looks very nice as I was hoping for one. I'm sure there's a purpose to the dashed squares on the { } keys that I'm simply unaware of, but I think it makes the key appear a little bit cluttered and it lacks balance with the other keys which put text in the bottom right. Another idea that comes to mind could be having katakana and/or kanji alternates for the modifiers. Otherwise, I love this set and I'm in if it ends up looking like this.

(Made an account just to be able to post here, which should say how much I like it!)

Before I start, I'd just like to say I appreciate you taking the extra effort to offer feedback on the set. It really means a lot to me!

As for your feedback, I do agree that the dashed squares on the set do clutter the keys a bit and contrasts compared to other keys. They're supposed to be placeholders for hiragana keys on Dakuten ( ゙ ) and Handakuten ( ゚ )  signs used to modify them, which similar legends can be found on something like GMK Metaverse. However, GMK Bento's implementation of just the symbol on the bottom right is much cleaner, so I'll be more than glad to change them.

As for Katakana and/or Kanji Mods (something like ePBT SimpleJa comes to mind), although it'd be great to have variety, I'm unaware that GMK has the moulds for mods with legends like those. Either new moulds will have to be created (which will increase price significantly) or they will have to be Dye-Subbed, which although cheaper, is something I'd rather spend time with novelties on as I honestly don't like the aesthetic of Japanese Mods in the first place and feel it just clutters it.

Hope that helps!

Ah, you're right about those symbols. I should have thought to look and compare! I understand a little Japanese, but I'm used to only looking at Latin keyboards so the characters occupying those keys don't stick in my head as well. I completely understand the bit about the mods. Honestly, the set as-is plus hiragana keys as an option is more than enough for me, so anything else is just a bonus.

Colour Matching will be delayed until Monday as difficulties with delivery have left it being delivered to the next business day (which is Monday for me). Hope to get RAL colours ASAP! (Will be using RAL Design Colours)
Got it just as I was leaving, hoping to colour match by TODAY

After colour matching, it has come to my attention that current renders were displaying pink far more saturated then what I had planned, so please take a look at the new renders for more accurate colours (now matched to RAL colours)

As a result, pink is now lighter and muted and darker blue is slightly more vibrant to further increase legibility.

Update 6: Novelty Kit renders are up with keyboard renders on them and planning to have more renders for different layout keyboards soon.

(https://i.imgur.com/WPl0npy.png)

As for additional kits, if there is a sudden surge of demand for a specific kit added, I will most like add it, otherwise the current set of kits will be most likely what you'll be seeing at Group Buy.

Kits such as pink modifiers changed the look of it a lot, and I believe don't fit the muted theme of the set, especially since you'll be having pink mods with blue alphas which won't look as great.

Vendors have been confirmed, so expect to receive Noel in time for Noel 2020.

Thanks for all the support so far, and I hope this turns out to be a successful GB! :thumb:

Update 7: New Renders by Abec13 which better capture the keycaps under natural lighting (though can't be 100% accurate due to different screens portraying colours differently). Also changing from WS1 to WS2 as WS1 was too warm for the set and I feel WS2 with it's cooler white is better themed for the set.

Currently working on possible deskmat designs, so as soon as they're done, I'll have it updated to the IC. :thumb:

Just some Observations/Suggestions:

1) Add Pink & White arrow keys
Accent Color Arrow Keys carry a lot of aesthetic value. Its one of the major design choices that unlocks the value of the accent color scheme and the set as a whole (e.g. Olivia, Camping, Cafe).

2) Add "Pg Up" to R3 and Add "Pg Dn" to R4
Adding the Page Up and Page Down keys in these rows is needed for those who don't have or don't use Home and End keys. The Page Up and Page Down keys are useful when kept close to the navigation arrows. Additionally, this layout is needed for people that don't like to sandwich their Page Up and Down keys in between the Home and End keys (e.g. Alt, M65-A, Satisfaction, 910, any 75% layout)

3) Remove sub legends from Numpad
Numpad keys with just numbers looks clean, minimal, and modern. The blue and the pink of Noel definitely give me these feels :)

Hey! Thanks for checking out my IC and posting your observations/suggestions on the kits, I appreciate it!

Most of what you said I do agree with you. Your first and third suggestions particular I was debating about having accent arrows and losing sub-legends for a cleaner look, but I felt it'd be a safer option to not go with those. However, given how the set has shaped, I would be glad to have these both done for the base kit.

This also includes the R3 Pg Up and R4 Pg Up as I was unaware of any boards of used them. It only adds 2 keys and I feel would be justifiable for better compatibility.

Thanks for your time!

Any possibility of adding a r2 1.5u tab key to the hiragana kit, and backspace novelties (both r1 2u and r2 1.5u) to the novelties kit?

Just the extra tab key would let base + hiragana buyers fill out both a TKL and an additional 65% board (of a different backspace and bottom row config).
And with backspace novelties on top of that, base + hiragana + novelties buyers would be able to fill a TKL and an additional 65% board, with the same backspace and bottom row config.

Any thoughts on splitting the numpad kit and adding the F keys to Hiragana kit?
+1 to keeping numpad clean with #s only.

A good portion of people still use numpad even if it's not the most common layout nowadays (at least seen in the enthusiast community), and neglecting that by having people pay around $30-40 extra for an add-on for something that would save roughly $15-20 for most people is something I do not want to do to. At least that's how I feel about it which is why I'd like to have a base kit to fit as many people as possible.

By F keys do you mean extra or Function keys with sub-legends? If it's the former then I understand the use of it from layouts 75% and above on a secondary board but I feel the added price for extra 12 keys that aren't japanese isn't worth it for many, as it'll be a premium on top of the current hiragana kit and base kit that they'd have to buy. If it's the latter I'm unsure if GMK possesses existing moulds for it. If they don't, it would be a small fortune to get them done which would greatly increase the price of the kit.

I appreciate your suggestions though, and look forward to improving the set to the best of my abilities.

Hey! I'd be glad to add a r2 1.5u tab to the hiragana kit for a secondary board.

The backspace novelties suggestion however I feel detracts a bit from the more minimal nature of this set. I did initially have a flying saucer novelty to be done for the conventional R3 shift keys, but that didn't turn out so great as it was too busy and ruined the otherwise minimal looking set.

Thanks for your suggestion! ;)

I know about Fuyu, I'm just talking trash for no real reason (still a little sad Fuyu didn't stick with ePBT though). Fuyu and Noel have a lot of similarities, but that doesn't bother me (Nautilus Nighmare more like green eggs and Jamon, don't @me :P)

Old kit renders included both arrow and purse caps lock, but I decided to remove purse in favour for R3 Control as I personally prefer arrow and having both, in my mind, would not make sense if I could give better compatibility.

Compared to similar kits across other Group Buys it's actually cheaper than most of them while offering more compatibility and keys; we've kept child kits as low as possible to make it easier for everyone to purchase.

Specific pricing can be found on our discord (https://discord.gg/adRMMUS) while we wait for all vendor's pricings, otherwise we should update it here and on https://gmknoel.com/ within the following day

Yeah I understand. Its just unfortunate timing to be spending a lot of cash right now, given everything going on. Will definitely try to grab it still, towards the end of the buy
