[IC] GMK Perestroika (Перестройка) | GB THREAD LIVE
« on: Wed, 02 October 2019, 08:25:38 »
GB THREAD: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=104415.0



I hereby present GMK Perestroika (Перестройка) to you.

The rich dark red colour is a standout feature of this set. Its Cyrillic alphas give the set a unique aesthetic and are a nod to its name, Perestroika, which points to connotations of reformation and openness. In the same way, I hope its users will be empowered to be more daring - to unleash new ways of thinking and working when using the set.



Kits



The blend of beautiful Cyrillic and English characters is unique and symbolises the two-way thinking that made room for a new way of life in Russia. Just maybe, the kit could inspire you to try a new way of working.
This kit is large and includes numpad support and ISO support, making it a great choice for a variety of layouts.




Not feeling the Cyrillics? Have no fear, you can convert the kit to be fully English (US/UK). Just like Gorbachev, the set strives to provide for the masses.
During the interest check, it was clear that it would be beneficial to create this, and so it’s ultimately the community’s kit.




For those among us who don’t fit the mould - this kit is for you. It covers the more unusual layouts, such as 40% and split.
After all, some of history’s greatest milestones were achieved by folks who did things a little differently.




For the people who want it even more modern than the base kit. The Modern Kit covers a 60% keyboard layout to achieve a smart uniform look without the use of English legends.
Forward-thinkers, we salute you.



Colours

Alphas and mods - RAL 3005 (Wine Red)
Legends - RAL 9001 (Cream)


The colours speak from themselves - a rich Wine Red and Cream.
If you want to get creative about it; try imagining a bowl of steaming Borscht soup, vibrant red, with a dollop of sour cream on top. Mmm.

A colour-match made in heaven and sure to look great on a variety of keyboards.

I don't have any plans for novelties, but if there's demand I'll consider it.

Nice.

There's no GMK molds for that, so that would mean extra mold costs. As I'd like a big base kit, this would mean it'd become too expensive.

Correct, icons are centered.

+1 for the centered icon mods. However, I don't like the single-arrow Tab. Please consider putting a regular icon tab in the base kit and moving the new one to the modern kit.

Created by not "born in USSR" builders again :(... we need to go little deeper with this idea.
IMO this one looks much better, than recent misconception of jtk vostok.

Send a PM to the designer letting them know what is incorrect so they can fix it to be a proper Russian set. Being proactive is much more constructive than bellyaching about it. Also I highly doubt any of the designers would say no to having an actual Russian citizen help them make the set as it should be for proper Russian.
