[IC] GMK Modern Dolch Light
« on: Sun, 13 October 2019, 16:00:09 »
Hello everyone!

I'd like to introduce you to GMK Modern Dolch Light, a brighter variation of the popular GMK Modern Dolch!



Inspiration/Naming

As the name might suggest, Modern Dolch Light was born out of Modern Dolch. Me and Dixiemech realised that a lightened up version of MoDo looked great and after some tweaking this is what we came up with. Modern Dolch light features cool greys on both the alphas and modifiers. It uses the grey from Modern Dolch modifiers, for the legends, to give it that unique low contrast and calming look. To add some vibrancy we added a variation of the familiar cyan and red/pink accents found in the original Modern Dolch.

Now I now the naming might not make sense, this isn't a Dolch set after all. GMK Modern Dolch Light is a derivative of GMK Modern Dolch which is a derivative of OG Dolch. While this set is not necessarily a Dolch colorway, the name is there to show the origin of the design. One thing is for sure, this set will settle perfectly in every collection as an easy-on-the-eyes colorway that will go with any keyboard!



Kits

With the success of GMK 9009 R3 kit structure and GMK MoDoL also having two accents, we decided to use the same kit structure with some minor changes. As you can probably tell there are a lot of them, so we'll possibly revaluate some of them after form feedback (especially Alternate, Command and Norde). So if you're interested in these please do fill in the form linked at the bottom of this post!

Standard



The standard kits has compatibility for the most popular layouts in the community. It features the reworked icon mods introduced with GMK 8008/9009 and has accent option for both escape and enter keys.

Addition



Addition adds support for 660c style layouts, ISO UK, 60%s with arrows and boards with an F13 key like the TGR Jane V2 CE. It also adds alternate legend options for 65% layouts and more.

Numbers



Numbers adds compatibility for layouts with a numbed. It also includes the keys needed to outfit a 1800 style layout.

Obscure



Obscure adds support for 40% layouts, both staggered and ortholinear, and split spacebar boards.

Aesthetic



Aesthetic is for those of you who like to add a little bit of colour to your boards, either through extra accents or through LEDs under lock keys. It also adds both centred and offset 6u spacebar support.

Alternate



Alternate “alternates” the existing colours on some keys. This kit is great if you enjoy monochrome accents or a more uniform looking f row.

Command



Command is specifically aimed at Mac users by adding correct legends for Command and Option keys.

Modern



Modern adds the option for a full icon bottom row. It also includes a more modern take on the arrows, caps lock and tab keys.

Norde



This kit adds compatibility for ISO NO, SE, FL, DK, DE layouts.

The group buy

GMK Modern Dolch Light will be sold by the amazing vendors linked below. Launch date and pricing will be announced later, but pricing will be similar to GMK 9009.

  • Dixiemech for the US

how does it compare to GMK Muted?

Slightly lighter modifiers/alphas, legends are quite a bit lighter (Modern Dolch gray vs CR on Muted), different accents. Also different modifiers of course.

I think it's lovely.  But I also think it's close to muted and people have wanted a rerun of muted for a long time.  I think you could blow MOQ out of the water with muted R2. We have hydro R2 coming (splash), so it's seems appropriate, right? Maybe offer a yellow accent with it for all of the e-yellow boards coming out?

I agree with your comments on muted. I’d love if someone just reran GMK Muted with an R5 bottom row.

+1 R5

I like the set a lot but I’m not a big fan of the name; the colorway doesn’t even remotely resemble Dolch. If anything you made a GMK Modern 9009 since you’re using those same green and red accents. I mean Modern Dolch was a tonally cooled down version of Dolch whereas this is more or less a tonally cooled down version of 9009.

Pretty sure the original runner of Muted has stated that there are no plans to re-run the set (and multiple people have attempted this already). So unless he changes his mind, this is the only way we’re gonna be able to get a Muted-like set.
