I have seen Vice Nights before but thank you.
I see where you're coming from but when you compare them, Cyan/Magenta/GreyBlack for Vice Nights, where i went Violet/Blue/BlueBlack for Blacklight and pbt Reverse Dye Sub rather than double shot abs.

I think he meant to say GMK Darskel, the purple and teal give a similar look. I still don't trust Infinikey's Black color, but other than that this set looks awesome! GL!

Definitely interesting. Iím a fan of the colors vs vice nights! I donít exactly trust infinikey though, would you be getting samples to confirm the colors will be accurate before running? I believe they had an issue before with getting the blacks to truly be black, so hoping that the reverse dye sub has been improved!

I'm really happy with how the black from Sanctuary came out, this wont be straight up black but a blue black. I appreciate that colour matching any really dark or light colour is difficult though

i meant what i said i was just being a ****ter

the alternate font is baller af and i would buy this set in a heartbeat if that was the standard across the whole kit

and as mentioned above me, sanctuary came out excellent meaning that this set certainly can as well

The first render has blue font arrow keys but the kit mock-up only shows purple font arrow keys. Include both?

This colorway fits nicely in between Darksel, Tokyo Nights, and Vice/Miami Nights. It has its own identity that stands on its own. And being PBT makes it even more special.

I am interested.  Definitely the lower case Fraktur as the base!  I responded to the survey, but posting here too, it would be cool to see more stoner 𝔡𝔬𝔬𝔪 vibes with novelties like inverted cross, pentagram, skull, etc.

Oh yeah, def icon-only mods!  Also, probably wouldn't be into a numpad, but the Cherry font looks out of place there (and on the function row).  Dunno about anybody else, but this set just screams Electric Wizard (http://electric****inwizard.com/) to me!  (That ankh logo would also be a rad novelty)

Absolutely love the colorway, I'm so into this!! I think it would look sooo daaaamn good on the entry edition NK65 ;). Although I would much prefer the base kit to have the normal alphas instead of the gothic ones. Btw what's the estimated price on this?

feel like the regular font on the modifier keys kinda clash with the special font on alphas though

special font on the modifiers too perhaps?  :))

So then, seems i'm at a bit of an impasse. I agree wholeheartedly that Cherry Mods + Fraktur look jank. It was a poor attempt at a solution. I also take on bored the critisicism that Fraktur/Blackletter and Blacklights aren't associated each other futher than my fascination with both. That being said here is my preposal and I'd love if you could comment and let me know what you think so I can get a better idea of how to move forward.

Option 1)Stick with the theme and pallet, lean heavier into the blackletter dropping all Cherry legends and mods entierly
Option 2)Split the 2 ideas into two sets one Blacklight using cherry style Type/Icons with this pallet and theme, one "Blackletter" a compleately new set based on Fraktur leaning heavily into the history and Blackletter type.
I have put together a very quick mock up of what these might look like:
243908-0
1- Current pallet, Fraktur everything 2- Current pallet, Cherry everything 3- New Blackletter themed set (probably wont be WoB)

So i guess the choice is Between either 1 or 2/3 together

Hope you all have an amazing weekend, please let me know what you think.
