I started reading and was like god damn do we need another pink themed gmk set and then by the end of the OP I needed to have it. My daughter saw me looking at it as well so that sealed the deal.

I would say I prefer the pink in the 910 and TKL renders, seems a little more muted and less hot - but I'm happy to go with whatever you decide of course, it's your set and your vision.

It's pretty difficult to show the exact pink digitally, the first three renders were a bit too saturated compared to my swatch, I've slightly desaturated those and replaced the images. Hopefully if all goes well and I have plastic samples, I'll have a better comparison.

Love the colours, definitely do not love the text only mods. It's by far my least favourite iteration, icon text, Cherry icons and icon only are honestly all better for almost every set.

icons would be good

consider switching to a RAL color or an SP colorchip as they're easier for GMK to match

Thanks for all the feedback about your preferences for modifier legends, I've added a section for that in my IC form as well so please "vote" there! Personally I prefer text only mod because it's more consistent and minimal but I wouldn't mind icon+text if that wins.

i really love this set

is adorable

but OG icon would make it more bubbly and cuter af than text only.

OG icon == icons on tab, backspace, enter, shift, caps lock. Home cluster icons and bottom row icons are grounds for domestic terrorism indictments.

Received a lot of responses regarding modifier legends today and based on those I've decided to go with Icon + text mods with an all text bottom row (like GMK WoB), thanks to everyone who filled out the form!

Also I'll reach out to Rama Works to see if they'd be open to work on a matching artisan for this set.

Hi friends, I have some news, Novelkeys has agreed to run the groupbuy for this set but it won't be for awhile (Jan 2020), in the meantime I'll work on finalizing the layouts, getting more renders, and figuring out deskmat and Rama artisan designs.

Currently ideating, but maybe a white keycap with simple peach blossom engraving and pink enamel infill!

Planning on including some accent keys, thoughts on these?


 




May also add ortho kit and a few desk pad options

IMHO this set works better without novelties - the cleanness of the single background colour/text colour is what sets it apart from other GMK colourways (pun intended).

But of course there is still no harm in running novelties, as long as the normal caps are present :)

My thoughts as well, a simple keyset along the lines of Minimal and Striker. Still thinking about what exact color accents to include if any though.

Scheduling. If something opens up we may be able to push this sooner... But there are sets that I have committed to until then.


Although, I have been toying with the idea of having two sets running.

Hey friends, I need some help with this 40s/split/ortho kit, are there any keys that are missing or don't need to be in here?

Edit: looked a bunch of other sets being run and added 2u shift for Cod67 and similar layouts, I see GMK Cafe has a 1.75u backspace and 1.25u/1.5u enter but couldn't find any layouts that needed those. Thinking this looks pretty good as is unless someone mentions otherwise!



Also mentioning the 4 kits will be: Base, Numpad/ISO, 40s/ortho, and Spacebars
