[IC] GMK Moomin | Update 6/21
« on: Sat, 23 May 2020, 16:51:17 »


Hello everyone, I hope you're all doing well!

I am very excited to finally bring this set to the public. I started working on this project back in July of 2019 and it has been quite the journey. For those of you who don't know Moomin or Moomins is a show/book series that tells the adventures of the Moomin family and friends. For the keyset, I have mostly focused on the 90s TV series which takes place in the peaceful Moominvalley. I always loved how this series could make you feel so calm and tranquil, if you get the time it is a great watch.   


It's been a lot of work but this set will have full licensing!


EDIT: WE WILL HAVE A NORDE KIT


Click HERE or the purple file icon below to fill out the Google interest form!






If you're curious where the inspiration for the colors comes from, in the 90s show the main characters Moomintroll, Moomin Mama, Moomin Papa all had these nice soft whites with a drop of color and it was important for me to bring that to the keyset. Note: you can see more examples of this by Googling "Moomin 90s" or by checking out this opening song for the show HERE

Holy crap this looks good. How will the novelty spacebars be made? Doubleshot or pad printed?

Super excited to be running this one! We've done a lot of work to get this officially licensed - I just wanna remind people that licensing costs money, but we're trying to keep the price as attractive as possible!

Rensuya can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think they're gonna be doubleshot

so, you use a finnish staple as inspiration but you do not include support for the language. not even an iso novelty-key.

I get that people like it, but does it scream moomin to anyone that looks at it? Try messaging your friends a render without moomin on it and see if they make the connection.

Waiting for the hate as per usual for speaking my mind. :)

No no, I feel ya. I was kinda thinking the same thing. The set looks nice but it doesn't really make me think Moomin without the novelties.

Really with how this is worded with >greentext formatting, the comments come across as salty and/or jealous more than anything constructive. Formatting them differently might garner your comment less criticism.

By the other comments here, seems like a number of other people are happy with the colors; IMHO they seem to capture the theme/main characters well, although I am not very familiar with the show.

you're right, I'm not very good at presenting my thoughts.

On topic: you seem to have missed to accent iso enter into the darker color, or is that intentional?

suggested this in the IC form, but would absolutely love an alt modifiers kit here that'd have the RAL color identified as "ice white". i would love to use that kit with the novelty spacebar and "marzipan white" accents. that'd be a dream!

would also as someone else pointed out add in iso novelties. would love a snufkin ISO cap!

I literally grew up with Moomin as I'm Finnish. My child grew up with Moomin as he is Finnish. To me the matter is a national treasure.

I love this idea and I'm going to buy every single kit and desk mat available but only if this comes with a NorDE kit. I don't want to be blunt or disrespectful but to me it would be an insult to not include at least the nordic keys.

Node kit numbers are usually dismal (edit-modern dolch light had to sell theirs at cost!) but this set might have an ace in the hole. What if you put a norde set in, and then put one iso enter novelty in there to sweeten the pot. Like how GMK Ursa had Paddington only in the ISO kit? Several beasties here look like they could fill out the space of an iso enter.

Box art is as good as the key design. Actually, someone should screengrab this first post, and show it to anyone who's attempting to make a thread here as what a polished IC looks like on day 1.

edit: I'm still not off my soapbox. Hattifattener numpad enter novelty. thinkaboutit.

Just googled. I used to work with someone who looked like that. She had a work ethic like the interest check runners who put their set colors in hex codes and show up without renders.
