  • GMK Civilizations

GB Live Here



Since the beginning of time, humans have always been enraptured with building things that are bigger, better, and more awe inspiring than ever before.

From the ancients of France and Britain building dolmens to the wonders of modern engineering evidenced by towering cities and hulking skyscrapers, we have come far

From around the world, people have come together to construct incredible monuments, places of worship, and towering statues, a testament to the perseverance of Human Kind.




GMK Civilizations aims to celebrate these miraculous constructions of civilizations long gone,

paying homage to the peoples of the world who built:

The Pyramids of Giza
Stonehenge
The Forbidden Palace
The Moai
The Parthenon
Chichen Itza
The Colloseum
The Great Wall of China
The Great Sphinx of Giza
The Taj Mahal
Al-Kaʿbah al-Musharrafah


Colors


More
I chose to use White and Brass (WS1 and RAL 1024 respectively) to represent this set

I believe the simplicity and elegance of these colors allow me to highlight the ancient wonders themselves

RAL 1024 is a near perfect match for brass weights and accents

Please note that all colors are digital representations of a physical color sample and will likely vary slightly in the actual product

This looks cool
Kind of wish it had more coloured keys than just enter and esc, but the theme is very interesting
Regardless, I look forward to seeing progress on this set (esp that brass rama someone mentioned)

This looks awesome. It would suit the Aaru TKL super well. Have you played around with gold/accented modifiers? The look now has a nice simplistic look, so it would lose some of that, but I mention it because the modifiers when accented and laid out on a keyboard, kind of look like stepped pyramids, especially Chichen Itza, and even moreso for a split backspace layout!

The color choice is definitely appropriate for the theme, but I'm not sure that WS2 is the right choice for the white, as it's quite cool. I associate ancient monumental architecture more with warm whites.

Your base kit is missing R3 PgUp and R4 PgDn.

Your spacebars kit has 1.75u space and second 1u space, which are only used on 40% boards, so they should be removed from the kit as they are effectively useless here.

I'd love to see a Greek alphas set, keeping with the overall theme. or maybe Greek sublegends? (full disclosure, I have no idea if tooling exists for this). The novelties might be refined to include the 7 Wonders of the World? I really like the colors though, so great work there. Also a collab with Marblek on this?

But the overall theme isn't Greek, that's just one of the civilizations it references.

No its not Greek, but also keeping with an overall theme of civilizations, it's be an interesting addition as one of the acknowledged cradles of Western civilization. With that said though, maybe more appropriate that there'd be multiple language alphas? Greek, Latin, Canjie, etc?

I think the colors really speak towards a Greek or Latin option though.

I agree with this regarding the white. A warmer white might suit it better. Would also like to see gold accent spacebars either in base or in spacebars kit. Otherwise really like the direction and theme on this set!
