[IC] GMK Noire
« on: Tue, 08 September 2020, 19:59:27 »




Hello Everyone! Iíd like to introduce you to GMK Noire



I am lucky enough to build keyboards and make content as my full time job, which means I wind up seeing and playing with a ton of boards. But I always felt like I never had a real workhorse set- something that would let the keyboard do the talking but also could make more plain boards look amazing. Something that would look great on most colors of boards without being black and white. A not boring minimal set. So I made Noire!

The Color Palette


These colors were chosen to go with most common board colors, but not be Black and White. I also wanted to avoid the kind of grunge-y feeling that some of the other, non black and white sets tend to have and just have a really clean, but not boring set. In order to avoid the accent color looking gray or greige at all, I spent a long time finding the perfect creamy beige that wouldnít look white against the black, but would also keep the set feeling clean and classy. Iím pretty happy with the results!


Kitting

Base Kit


I wanted to keep the kitting simple and user friendly, so we are offering a base kit with a reasonable amount of support for common layouts. If we ever run this again, I will consider extensions kits and the like.

Novelties


I really wanted to make sure that we had novelties that still felt minimal, but elevated the set for when your board needs a little extra. I worked for a very long time with the incredible Nephlock of GMK Metropolis fame to bring these to life, and I truly feel they are what makes this set something special. We took nods from Mid Century and Minimalist Art, along with Nephlockís own unique style to make novelties that fit with what this set is: minimal, but not boring.


Deskmats:

Deskmats will be standard 900x400mm size, 4mm thick, stitched edge.
Mockups (refer to palette for color samples)




Artisan Collabs:
Salvun
 Preliminary Prototype Pictures

Latrialum
Hello Caps
Bad and Bouj Keys
And more :)

Keyboards Renders

Please be sure to refer to the color palette for color samples. Though we have done our best, renders are limited in their color accuracy.

Stunning and brave. I like this a lot. So simple and elegant. And it does exactly what you wanted it to. Adds so much but still lets the keyboard do the talking.

may be late...but will you consider taking out the word noire in the deskmat?

the design looks good. the word noire kind of break up that design.
