From the IC form we receive many comments on the esc icon about it looking 'weird' out of place and doesn't fit the set. So we try out some other designs some of which you've already seen And user Jebbra also help contribute to this :thumb:

to keep track of responses easily, we decided to run a strawpoll (please only vote based on esc and not based on other modifier key): http://www.strawpoll.me/16541815/

But if it's between the poll options, I prefer the centered X.

Square Esc actually looks really good imo. It flows better with the sharper angles of the other modifier icons and stands out better against the curved hiragana characters.

Why not offer something like an Esc key (that square version is rad) and a novelty key? I don't know specifically if we want the ramen (not my jam, personally), but we could likely come up with something else cool if that doesn't hold up.

I am really hoiping for the left aligned, just makes it uniform since this quite a classy looking board. I can easily use this at work.

The ramen can be a novelty, but I hope we get a clean looking escape as well.

I think the reason all of them look weird is because the characters on all the other keys are up in the top left corner. If any of the existing "escape symbols" were pushed into the top left corner, it would look better. But that's just my 2.

Lol that ramen key is pretty cool, fr I'm just gonna put an artisan there anyway so I'm fine with whatever.

The X might just look like the multiplication symbol tho like on Ivan Dolch etc.

Quick update:
Weww. square won by quite a bit, which was my personal favorite too :p

I've talked to GMK and they said they can make the square ESC key!

1 line tab key as suggested by Jebbra also made it ;)

Added 1u alt and 1u ctrl to the base kit to support 65% board like the tada68

Remove r3 1.75 control key as downward pointing arrow can also act as control key

Updated kit on Original Post

Heres the official gmk render and colour codes

The new tab icon looks too small compared to the other mods. The line weight is thinner and the arrowhead smaller. Escape has the same issue, and the arrowhead is shaped differently than all the others. I think you could just add a box to the "home" legend.

Otherwise, I love this set. The extra 1u bottom row caps were a great addition.

All in 2 sets of this.

But do agree with the rest, legends are cleaner now, but the tab does seem a little disproportionate.

Any chance of adding a 1.25u r3 key for 40% users? It's usually tab but honestly any icon is fine, can't be picky since icon keys are doubly rare for 40%
