Colors are definitely creative.
Haven't seen anything like this, I like it!

Yellow/cream spacebar to match the alpha base colour?

I second this idea

I respect anyone's opinion, but to me pastel blue space makes the set look fresh.
Always having the same design patterns like spacebar matching alphas gets boring really fast imo.

Could I just include both colors for the spacebars (not sure how common this is)?
It's common for kits these days to include the dual colors of spacebars.

Okay, I've updated it to have dual color spacebars! As in, it shows as two colors on the graphic, but means that both colors will be supported.

I've also gone ahead and posted to r/mk and r/mm for the first IC.

Time to get the ball rolling on this!

I love pastel colours, but it's a shame I don't like yellow too much... or else I'd be so in. Still love the design though

Sorry for the half a year hiatus, there were a lot of things on my plate but I'm ready to try and pick this back up again! I haven't given up on my pastel keyset dreams.. just postponed them a bit!

I went ahead and actually switched up the colors a tad (Pantone C colors were recommended) and I ordered some chips so I could see the colors in person myself! I understand it will still not be exact (whatever lighting and camera settings I have + different people's monitors) but hopefully this helps! I will get updated renders once this moves a bit further along.



The base set remains mostly the same (keycaps wise) except for the spacebars. Originally, I thought it would be easier just to have one set total (like how GMK Skeletor was) and then it would have 3 sizes of spacebars in 2 different colors. But more and more sets have separate spacebar kits so I'm wondering if this should do the same? If so, I'm thinking something more like:

Included in Base set:
(All Yellow) 6u, 6u off-centered, 6.25u, 7u

Spacebar set:
(Pink) 6u, 6.25u, 7u
(Both Yellow & Pink) sizes like 1.25u, 1.75u, 2.25u, and 2.75u, etc. that people are interested in

The abnormal sizes (like anything for a split spacebar board) are a bit confusing to me and I also understand most people don't use keyboards with small spaces, so this is me interest checking for people that want this set and want specific sizes? This probably isn't the best way to go about it but I don't know how else to gauge interest in a spacebar kit D: I guess like a speak now or forever hold your peace kind of thing?

borrowed from oblotzky's space cadet IC:

just do this for your spacebar kit

if you're doing a smaller number of novelties it might be good to throw them in here too, since spacebars are cheap

Could the novelty Easter eggs make their way back into the set as a replacement for the Windows(TM) icons?

the alpha is too pinkish for me...mods only would be fine for me but I doubt there's that option...

Coming in late, but this is cute! As a fan of pastels, it's nice, but the yellow is not my favorite. I think a mint, pastel green would look nice. The pink in the mockup is also not as pastel as the others, I don't think, it looks a bit darker to me compared to the others.

Either way, it's a good start, and depending upon how it progresses, I may be interested!

I haven't forgotten nor abandoned this! It's just been on the backburner because of work but I'm still very much interested in making this happen.
This was the last render I got from thesiscamper (oops, I thought it was DCS but the renders are not DCS... still going for GMK!). These colors are closer to what I'm imagining for Pastel, than the previous renders.

Happy Easter, and I'll be updating some stuff soon to get the ball rolling again on this set. Nothing is set in stone yet, so I'll need your help to lock down colors/keys/kits. Stay tuned!

:)

This was the last render I got from thesis (I had asked to do it in DCS because I wasn't sure Pastel will hit MOQ as GMK, but I think I'm still down to try!). These colors are closer to what I'm imagining for Pastel, than the previous renders.

Just thought to myself that this as a blank set would also be killer! But Im aware that this might not draw a lot of people tp the GB.
