Loving this, such a nice calm set and for a great cause too!

2nd one looks too yellow IMO, but would like 2nd accents on the first one :thumb:

Might help to have the colors for minimal umka U9 and ivory next to each other. Pixelpusher has photos of the first 3 in the GMK sixes thread in a variety of colors.

I really like this! Nice calm muted colorway. Any chance of possibly adding an alt modifier set that reverses the colors? I think that would.make for a very nice option with this kit.

This is super nice;

Might be worth exploring making the base colour for the alphas a little lighter than it is on the 2nd option (but not as white as the 1st) and keep the legend colour almost black as is - I think that'd look the nicest, because the faded grey-ish legends for the light scheme is too little contrast in my opinion.

TBH, I think "muted" alpha color (RAL 085 90 10) with "bold" legends (CR?) would look best.

Depends on interest, I'll see about adding a bottom row icon kit

agree
That's what I'm planning to do!

I mentioned this on Reddit, but surely the lighter color kit can be done with GMK stock colors, right?

Correct. I will probably do accents with GMK CB, but for the keys I may have to stick with one custom color.

Love the set and the cause behind it! Looks a little plain at the moment, possible to add an options for full grey modifiers? Are there also any deskmats planned for this set, hopefully elephant themed?

It's personal preference really, just what I decided on when making the renders. Some sets do this, especially Dixie-run sets. Might change when I make the kits, but for now I think it'll stay this way.

Lots of sets do it this way, full icon mods aren't popular (personally I find them to be ugly, at least with the GMK style icons).

Using icons on backspace, shift, tab, caps lock and enter while leaving the rest as text may seem illogical, but for many it looks a lot better.

It's also the way Cherry made their icon mods:

(someone can correct me, but I believe ANSI boards were made with icon + text mods and ISO boards were icon only)
