[GB] GMK Midnight Rainbow FINAL DAY - ends 26th June!
« on: Fri, 05 June 2020, 05:42:17 »
Hello everybody

This is the Group Buy Thread for GMK Midnight Rainbow, A dark but colourful set, designed to be the showpiece of your board.


Design & Inspiration
This idea originally began to form in the back of my head in 2017; some of you may remember the old run of GMK Rainbow on zFrontier. This was a set that divided opinion, and is rarely talked about today in the western community, but still managed to make MOQ when the community was significantly smaller. I wanted to pay homage to the set, but also bring a modern, more usable set for the majority of boards. The main idea was to tone it down, and bring some clarity and order to the colours.

However; as happens with many projects, this fell by the wayside, and it was only when I saw the amazing festivities of the Manchester Pride event a in 2019 that I was reminded and re-inspired to bring this set to life.


Kit Design
Base
This kit supports all the most popular custom keyboard layouts from standard TKLs to 65%, WKL bottom rows, HHKB, a numpad and more. There is also UK ISO support in the base kit (as I知 an ISO user).
Due to the nature of the colourway some usual key duplication allows further kit optimisation (Mod coloured \| on ANSI for example).

Spacebars
A small kit designed to give split board users the ability to adequately cover the bottom row, as well as an extra B key for those Alice type layouts.

Base Kit

I took a quick look through the IC and couldn't find a list, but someone said they're similar to those in 2018 GMK Rainbow on Black's IC.

Are any of these also Midnight Rainbow's colors?
