[IC] GMK 8008
« on: Thu, 18 April 2019, 11:01:38 »



I am very excited to finally post the official Interest Check for GMK 8008!

PROJECT PAGE

There are many ways to design things and everyone does it in different ways. Some people sit down, grind it out and try to force out a design just for the sake of making something, although this usually doesn't yield the best results. I am usually on the side of being inspired by things that I encounter throughout my daily life.
This set design really found me instead of me finding it.


I saw a sports bra.

GMK 8008 was born.


STORY:
I was on vacation last year and walked through a store with my wife and saw a sports bra hanging on clothing rack. I was immediately inspired to make this keyset. I have been working on it for a few months to get everything just right and I really think that this set just works. The moment I got the final color swatches chosen, I immediately knew it was one of my best so far.

The mods are a dark navy-grey, the alphas are a light blue-grey, and the pink is a bright highlighter pink.

I have already chosen the swatches and confirmed them with GMK.

The kits may be changed a little.


FILL OUT THE INTEREST CHECK FORM

KITS:

These kits are just a starting point and may be changed.

Base: This is the same base kits as Modern Dolch with the numpad separated. There is an error in the render. The second enter will be mod colored. There will not be two accent enters.


Icon Mods:


Numpad: I may add the ISO keys to this kit instead of the base, like we did for GMK Minimal.


Spacebar:



RENDERS

Bauer by Dixie Mech


Dharma by Janglad



M60-A by Rama Works




Olivia Comparison before anyone even says it.


This set us still a few months out, so it will not be during this GMK frenzy this quarter. Most likely Q3.

We will have a special artisan offering with this set that you have not seen before.

Code for signature if you would like to help support this project! :)

Well that’s a chip down on my bingo card!

I love how this came about from a Sports Bra. Sometimes inspiration strikes from the weirdest places or things!

I would love to see more smaller spacebar being added to the spacebar kit like the kit from GMK Eclipse.

Also adding the same Ortho keys like on GMK Minimal would be nice.

What are your opinion on that?

GMK 5318008 would be more apt.

I'm probably a smaller minority than even ISO, but I would really like compatibility on par with 9009. I use a lot of it on multiple boards. Especially since it's so easy to mix with other keysets. Stepped control makes me happy. Windowed would be even better.
These colors are great, and I would mix with it as well. Especially those alphas.

All through the teases, I had no idea why it was "1 less" than 9009, it made no sense.

Now it makes sense.

Please add nipples to F & J.

Well it is inspired by the bra. Not what goes in the bra. And this is not a boob themed keyset. There will be no boob novelties or anything like that. This is not a meme set. The name just fit too well to not use it.
