Here is a better photoshop of the script design.

I really hope we can get a dark red case similar to this.

Let me know what you think!  ;D

Looks amazing! However we will probably keep the top simple (as in no engravings or logos). We might change the weight to text only though depending on feedback. As far as the dark red goes It will be decided this week. We will sort through the color IC answers and decide on colors based on that (although dark red looks to be one of the favorites so far).
I too like the more simple front with no engravings.

Regarding the back weight I'd rather have just the logo, but that's just my opinion.

I like it. Hard for me to imagine typing on it so I'll be down too but the PCB just to see how the layout feels.

No updates us of now, next item of business will be to sort through the IC and finalize colors and material options. As far as the GB goes it's still planned for that timeframe, however it is not by any means a concrete date.

a classic dark grey case can never be a bad choice.

I wouldn't say it's mediocre haha since it makes me even more excited than I already am. Also that render did a really good job showing that curve  :thumb:. Are we still on schedule with the expected timeline for GB, will we have a prototype?

Qlavier acrylic Alice case has such a nice rounded shape on the front, would be cool something in this direction:

There's plenty of Alice inspired boards with rounded chins at this point. If you're not into the angles, why get invested in this one?

Because I love everything about the board. The slight angles are fine but the renders are inconsistent.

On some renders there are way sharper angles, which I don't like.

I like how it looks and rounded angles will cost more machine timing aka more expensive to produce.

I'm afraid we'll probably be sticking with the more angular chin, we prefer the look of the board that way. Also the renders are all of the same board just some different angles, there haven't been any changes to the chin throughout the IC phase. Sorry for the confusion!

Thanks for the reply! I'm fine with the angulars but would be cool if the chin is a tad wider like the fallacy.

Otherwise the board is stunning, keep the good work up.
