GB May 1st - June 1st

Discord for updates: https://discord.gg/eGnjxGx



Hi all,

Welcome to the GB for GMK Deep Navy! There won’t be a lengthy explanation as to why I chose this theme - I just like it; having been surrounded by nordic design since I was young I’ve grown quite fond of this dark navy colour. As a fan of minimalism I've kept it as an uncontroversial colour scheme that I very much enjoy; something that is stylish in home use and not too outlandish to bring to the office. This is the first full keyset I’ve designed so I’m keeping it nice and simple with just 2 kits.

GMK Deep Navy is a sleek and professional keyset featuring custom dark navy keys with WS1 legends.

Estimated shipping Q1 2021

Base:

The base kit provides compatibility for 60%, 65%, 75%, TKL, 1800 and full-size boards, with support for ISO. Accent keys are included for those who want to bring a bit of flare to their board.



Addition:

A spacebars kit with 40% and Alice-layout compatibility.



RAMA Cap:

Anodised aluminium with white enamel infill.





Deskmat:

Nordic night - designed by Sour.

I recommend you take a look at the renders on a computer screen as phone screens boost contrast especially on darker colours, making this seem a lot more dark than intended.

Renders courtesy of Abec13:

Keyboard: Satisfaction 75 by upas









Keyboard: Iron165 by Smith and Rune







Keyboard: Adélie by Abec13:

Colours:
White - GMK WS1
Navy - Pantone 282 C is being used as a starting point but will be adjusted as is necessary
Please note the final colour may differ slightly from the renders.

Special Thanks:
To Abec13 for the great kit feedback and renders as always
To upas for taking this project on and being incredibly helpful with educating me about the GMK process
To Sour for the spectacular deskmat and packaging, and for being so cooperative in the process
To the Necros for putting up with my pestering questions since the beginning
To Kate for the help with the artisan design
To the rest of the vendors for agreeing to run the project <3

Given how some numbers are outdated it’s safe to say we’ve hit MOQ on all counts, thanks everyone!

any thoughts on getting this for a blue 7V? i know it's not the same "blue", but still think it might look good.

if there were more white mods, i'd jump on it.

I believe that’d be a very nice combo - the two different blues would compliment each other well

With the nob and mini-display? That is a Statisfaction 75. Potential R2 at end of the year.

Ordered the base and Rama keycap! First keycaps ordered ever. This will go into my Prophet Keyboard. Was contemplating between this and the GMK Masterpiece. But I feel like this could match many different future boards better.

Well done!

Yes. Nothing has contributed more to me not buying matching deskmats than that.

Yes. Nothing has contributed more to me not buying matching deskmats than that.

The reason for having to pay for shipping twice is because the deskmats and the keycaps have different production times; therefore, they are shipped separately.

Rama caps and base kits have different production times and ship together. I had figured the difference was inventory space.

Usually not, however you can triple your chances of winning by adding your order number in the raffle form.

Sorry to hear about that. I’d suggest joining their discord server too since they post the form there as well. Good luck if you plan to enter later this week too!
