This is a great take on accent keys that I'm blown away by. Very happy to see innovative little twists like this starting to pop up more and more! Keep at it dude!

ISO is unfortunately unlikely to change, this is how I like to kit ISO within 4 keys restriction because of mentioned reasons. Sorry to everyone wanting a different version!

What's the reason for keeping the tertiary | legend? Just wondering. Seems kind of unnecessary and also inconsistent.

One day we shall convince Emir of the wrongness of this particular quirk of his.  :D

M-muh repressed feminine tendencies.

Why is it not red?
Red is inferior.

I think the heart on top of the two would look much more aesthetically pleasing if it would have a filling/if it would basically just have an outline

Would you consider including the '*-key, the <>-key, the small left shift and the ISO enter in the base kit? 4 more keys wouldn't bring the price up too much and it would give ISO support :)

While I agree that having basic ISO compat in the base kit is generally good, putting it in an add-on kit incentivizes people to buy that kit, which helps it reach MOQ. Numpad-only kits have a tendency to sell poorly and sometimes don't meet MOQ (e.g. GMK Yugo).
thank you for coming to my ted talk

Is there a chance that you'll have another Kit with the same Keycaps but with the letters and numbers in a purple colour?

Sorry to say, but unfortunately no. Maybe GMK taro R2 would be a good suggestion if you're after that look?

As of right now, it does not look bright. :/ Like contexpr mentioned, that is one reason - but also small increases in quote pricing can end up turning off a lot of people at retail. It is not simple and not easy choices to make, but as of right now I believe this kitting is good

i'm most likely being salty here because i will be buying this set and spending an extra $30 - $40 USD on an extra kit just for @2 keys is silly but in a way, i sort of understand the other end of the spectrum on the reasoning behind it.

why not a make an novelties set so it includes the heart/2 keys instead of including it in the main kit?

The whole set is inspired by, and built around the heart legend.

I understand that my sets are niche and not for everyone, firefly was the same way. In a way, that means forcing my vision on you, and if it was up to me then @2 wouldn't be part of any kit st all as it kills the main idea for the set. The deaccent kit for firefly was the same way, completely against the whole idea of that set. However, I understand people are not always looking for exactly what I want them to look for, so compromise is necessary. At the end of the day, it's up to people to use the Keyset how they want to, and if that means omitting the heart legend then by all means! ❤️

It'd be an interesting look for sure! But for this specific set, I am keeping it the OG way. :O

Hi
Thanks for reminding me of how much a basic b* I am. I'm in.

Also regarding the name: yes I am aware that Rouge means red in French as stated in the OP. It's meant as a reference to Rouge make up palettes as depicted in the images, and yes I am aware they're most often in different shades of red (but not exclusively). I was never good with names, but That's the reference. Hope that clears things up! :)

I confirm, you can definitely have rouge ā lčvres that is not red. Here is some rouge ā lčvres bleu: https://www.cosmopolitan.fr/,cap-sur-la-tendance-des-levres-bleues,1974132.asp

love this new take on accent keys!

i was looking at the renders again, have your tried starting the accent colors from the first key (i.e. ESC or ~) rather than the 2nd key from the left? suspect it could look better this way.

The base kit needs a R3 1.75U control to support HHKB. It makes no sense to have the R2 1.5U backspace in the kit without it.

Sorry, for this set there won't be a control legend there as the base strives to be as minimal as possible. Most   people use the icon regardless if a control is included or not on their hhkb. I understand not everyone is the same, but unfortunately it won't be added.

Fine man, you do you. :D By the way, I may have spoken too soon about the kitting: I just noticed that the 40s kit has one 1.75u spacebar. I believe there should be two, as one of the very few 40% keyboards that use that size actually needs two 1.75u spacebars.

Rather just remove it. :D All 40s kit feedback is most welcome, I have no really limited information about them. This is basically the firefly 40s kit without accents.

I would say removing it is the better course of action since it's so rarely used, but I'm not a 40s kit expert by any means, so I'd suggest getting a second opinion either way :)
