I don't see a 2.0u left shift, does anyone know if the 2.0u spacebar would work there instead?

Yes, og cherry icon everything

When you look down at your keyboard from time to time, do you make sure to take in the whole story behind the keyset, the inspiration, the designers feelings when pasting a hexcode into KLE? Props to you if you do, I just like pretty colors and couldn't care less what the story is behind the set.

By 'set with Art Deco design' I was pointing out that there are novelties that abide by a different design language than the Cherry icons do. So when I look at the keyboard with Noire on it, I would be seeing two different design aesthetics clashing on the same board. Props to you for being blind to that and caring only about muh cherry icons.

Our wonderful vendor Project Keyboards was involved in the design from its inception back in January, so we were very lucky to have his support from the start. I also prefer to bring a completed set to the IC phase, rather than a half baked IC, out of respect for everyone's time.

I've been in and out of love with this set the last month. The art deco story does help persuade me though.
Think it will look great om my U80 soya. However had another set in mind for that board, but copping that's not a guarantee.
So. decided to go full steam with base, novelties, brass salvun, deskmat.
RIP my bankaccount - 20201103  :p
