[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! :)

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?

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.

These key caps are great. I feel very attractive.
But why is there no key cap for 40%? When I saw this for the first time, I was thinking of attaching it to the "45-ATS".
We strongly hope to attach a 40% keycap to the option.

Filled out the IC form, but adding some thoughts here too.

Love grey sets. Love pink. Love ISO.

Great start!

But I love small form factor boards too. Orthos and 40s. And I'm a NORDE user.

Seeing as you're dedicated to making ISO more accessible, please do add NORDE support. With ISO already included in base/numpad, covering a NORDE layout should become easier too.

Hoping to see ortho/40s support too.

Will follow with interest! :thumb:

I'm not in love with this set, but I feel it may be something that grows on me. I may be missing something, but why is it called 8008? It doesn't share any similarity with 9009 as far as I can tell. But maybe that wasn't the point, idk.

The lighter color looks good too. I think your sample was a little too white, but something a tad lighter than the gray color in the current renders might be nice.

i like that grayish tone. It looks pretty good and pink accents pop that way way more.

I think if you whiten the alphas then it does potentially start looking a little too close for comfort to Olivia. I like the grey alphas personally, but each to their own!

Love the set with the lighter alphas.  Hah hah, the grey alphas actually do remind me of sportswear, but boring grey sweatshirts and sweatpants.  This is just my personal reaction, and is not meant to criticize anyone else's taste or preference.  Maybe I could like the darker version if I could get the association with sportswear out of my head, lol.  Probably doesn't help that I didn't come from an affluent family, and wore boring grey sweats when playing sports as a kid, when other kids had flashy gear.  It's funny how personal experience colors our responses.  It would be nice if the lighter alphas were an option, but I don't expect the world to revolve around me.  If you like the colorway, enjoy the set!

The colors are final and will not be changed. I spent many months getting these colors dialed in for the vision I had for the set. This set is not boob themed, or even sports bra themed. It was just inspired by a sports bra. Please understand that there is a difference.

I love the colors and I'm definitely going to buy a set.  Like I said, I've seen similar colorways on my wife's running gear for a few years now and always thought it would make a great keycap set.  I also think there are so many great colorways on NFL teams too.

When I have this set on my board some day, I will show it off to my friends as GMK tiddies.  I don't care what inspired it.  I'm calling it GMK tiddies.  B/C tiddies are awesome, and this colorway is awesome.

Yeah, I need this right now.

I want to buy this set, but there are/were so many GMK and other sets going on. This has to be the most compressed GB time in keycap history, I feel like the last two months has been Minimal, Skidata, Wavez, Nines, Jamon, Striker, Misu, Bento, Metropolis, Eclipse, SA Laser, some Enjoy PBT sets, and I'm sure I'm missing some other DSA sets. That also ignores several Artisan sales, and keyboard sales as well. I just opened my wallet and it coughed dust at me and died.

If 8008 went live in several months that'd be great. Great for me, and great for a better chance for 8008 to do well and sell more sets I imagine.

GMK Mizu

Not to mention the limited timeframes going on at the same time for things like TA 90, Mr. Sleeves, GMK DMG, etc, and upcoming sets like Oblivion v2. I'm sure I'm glossing over a whole bunch of other stuff, too.

And that's just keysets. @__@

Wait, what is going on?

Can people get various color scheme keycaps for their existing keyboards that fit with a bunch of models? Or some models only? Uh, I missed the birth of this entire, what's the 101 of how to get in on this? Not necessarily this GMK 8008 color scheme (I have a beige / light-grey HHKB pro 2) but I could be down to shop around for a new look.

I haven't posted on geekhack inÖ eleven years! (Edit; I checked, the gap has been less than ten years.) I've been happy with my HHKB pro 2, or, well, when it broke (that part I wasn't too happy about) I got a new one the exact same.
