[IC] GMK Red Devils - Starts TOMORROW, 9/2 - GB thread is open!
« on: Tue, 04 February 2020, 14:08:43 »


Welcome to the IC for GMK Red Devils, inspired by the South Korean national soccer team and of course, Zambumon's GMK Striker. Even though this team has achieved only modest success on the world stage, few things stir up Korean national pride and unity as supporting their team in a major tournament.


Colors



A note about the red: It’s really more of a deep pink almost, a very pleasing hue if I do say so myself.


GB Info

This set will run from September 2-30 with the following vendors:

NA: TXKeyboards
Canada: DeskHero
EU: MyKeyboards
Asia: iLumkb
Oceania: DailyClack



NOTE ABOUT PRICING: I know many of you were disappointed that the Numpad+ISO kit was added to the Base kit, but as a standalone kit, it would have cost a prohibitive $55, whereas adding it to the base kit resulted in only a $10 increase.


Kits

Base

The base kit has compatibility for the most popular layouts in the community, from 60% and up, and features the reworked icon mods introduced with GMK 8008/9009. It also includes accent options for Esc and Enter, F13, terminal ISO, and brand new 한자 and 한/영 sublegends on ALT and CTRL for complete Hangul support.



Hangul

This kit includes brand new molds for mono Hangul legends. NOTE: The primary legends (top left corner) have been slightly enlarged and bolded (compared to how they are as sublegends) to be more in line with cherry conventions. They will not however, be as bold as the standard Latin legends, as it would not look appropriate for Hangul.



Spacebars

This kit features odd-sized spacebars and a 2nd B/ㅠ and mono ㅠ for Alice layouts.



Taegukgi

The Taegukgi kit is a small novelty kit taking inspiration from the flag of South Korea. It adds a strong graphic element to the set and would also pair nicely with GMK Minimal.




Artisan Collaborations

Dokkaebi by Salvun



Horangi by RAMA





Taeguk by RAMA






Deskmat

The Korean Wave

An abstract representation of the Taeguk (Korean Yin/Yang) in the form of a wave.








Renders by Janglad

TGR Jane



Keycult No. 1/65





RAMA M60-A





HBCP






FAQs

1. What is 대한민국? 대한민국 (Daehan Minguk) is a popular cheer used in sports. It is akin to the "U-S-A!" chant that Americans are fond of.

2. What do the symbols in the Taegukgi kit mean? These are trigrams, or 괘 (gwae), that you may recognize from the flag of South Korea. They actually can mean a myriad of things—including the cardinal directions. See below chart from Wikipedia:

This coloway is ideal for adding highlights to other sets with enter, esc, backspace and maybe control keys as well. You may want to consider to offer a set for that purpose.

Really like this. The only feedback I'd give is I'd love if the numpad kits would have the sublegends like they used to. They look a lot better with the PgUp, PgDn, etc. sublegends.

Would be +1 on this because it's consistent with how the sublegends add to the main cluster alphas, *unless* a single-legend alphas kit will exist.

- Icon + Text mods
- R5 bottom row
- Inclusion of some blue?



Let me answer you first, since you asked for blue. This set was very much inspired by the team's current uniforms (red and black), which I feel is a more "modern" look. As such, my design decisions were guided by this "modern" aesthetic. If you look at the uniform in the photo above, you'll notice it doesn't have any extraneous details on it. There are no flourishes or extra style lines. It's just the essentials: team crest, number, kit manufacturer logo, and authenticity tag. Unfortunately because of this...

- There will be no Icon+Text mods
- R0/5 also feels more vintage than modern to me, so no to that as well
- Finally, there will be no blue, other than what's on the deskpad

kinda dank

edit: im afraid i will have to change my "pretty dank" to a "kinda dank" on account of the centered icon mods

Unfortunately, I feel quite strongly about using Janglad's new icon mods to go along with the whole "modern" look I mentioned in my reply to Lightning.

Maybe having a 한자 and 한/영 Key might be something to consider ?

Good suggestion. It will be added.

Good set. Keep numpad in base.

Unfortunately, that probably won't happen.

This coloway is ideal for adding highlights to other sets with enter, esc, backspace and maybe control keys as well. You may want to consider to offer a set for that purpose.

Unfortunately, I think that will be too many kits.

Quick we need another GMK set, said no one ever.

Yes, I realize we are swimming in GMK sets right now. I did consider running this with a different manufacturer, but the depth of saturation of this color and the minimalism of Janglad's new icon mods, pushed my decision towards GMK.

RAMA keycap of the Taeguk circle please

The cap has already been designed. Unfortunately, it won't be the Taeguk. I actually inquired about doing the Taeguk, but it would require the red and blue halves be separated by 0.4mm, which is actually kind of a lot on a keycap.

+1 also mebbe korean only legends?

I would like the look of that. Unfortunately, I am not a great touch typer in English, so that's probably not going to happen. Sorry!

Well, the team is called the Taeguk Warriors and they don't have a Taeguk on their kits. I agree that it's perhaps not the best name, but I'm not sure what else to call it. Open to suggestions.

Nicely done mate, but the Title "Taeguk" is weird.
As you know, The pattern "Taeguk" often refers to "three-Taeguk" in the form of a mixture of blue, red, and yellow, or "Taeguk" in the form of a circle of red / blue. However, there are no elements representing these "Taeguk" in these set, and titles like "red devils" are more appropriate. :confused:

I'm looking forward to this set. thanks! :thumb:

A note about the red: It’s really more of a deep pink almost, a very pleasing hue if I do say so myself.

This is my only concern. The keys in the renders look RED. The pantone chip as you say looks a fair amount lighter. My preference is for what's in the renders, but that's just me. But love the idea behind the set.

I will consider this addition but need to work out key placement and how many keys it will actually add to the kit.
