[IC] KAT PBJ - (10/25) Vendors, Collabs, Kitting Updates!
« on: Fri, 16 October 2020, 12:56:53 »

KAT PBJ
A fully modular, lighthearted keyset that will pull you back to your childhood!




Welcome to KAT PBJ, my passion project for the last few months! I was inspired to create my own keycap set that was as authentic to my own self as possible, and I strongly believe in never taking life too seriously. Embracing your inner child and finding the fun things in life doesn't ever have to go away, so I wanted to create something that reminded people of their childhoods and give cozy after-school snack vibes. Nothing evokes that feeling like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich cut in triangles, a cold glass of milk, and your favorite cartoon playing in the background.

Thus... KAT PBJ was born!

Cute set! I love the lowercase legends.

I'm not keen on the accent kits being blank, but the novelties are so cool ;) Exciting to see someone taking advantage of dye sub to use so many colours.

I've said this in an IC form response but thought I'd post here too:

  • Numpad kit would be better with proper 1800 support rather than R5 blanks - see KAT Lich for example (3 more keys than current, and would provide correct colouring)
  • Any chance of an additional R3 up arrow? It's far from required, but it's something I personally added for my set as it adds comfort, and it's appeared in some sets since (Drifter, Space Cadet, Arctic, Hyperfuse, Iron, Monochrome).

I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this one, GLWIC!

this is such a well organised ic, and I love the honey accent. not usually a fan of KAT sets, but I might get this. I'd definitely like to see a blank mods kit, might complement the soft colours and shapes of the set better than text/icon mods, and maybe some additional novelties with a simpler outline/less colours, but otherwise this is perfect. glwgb!

Huge thanks to everyone who has left kind comments and support!

Initial response from the IC form has been great, but there have been a few concerns and suggestions that I'd like to address. Here is a short summary:

Quote
Add Cyrillic Alphas

Due to popular demand, I will be adding a Cyrillic Alphas kit. This will take some time, but I will hopefully have it done by the next major update!

Quote
The legends need more contrast / are too light

In part, this was an intentional design decision, however I didn't consider that it might be a genuine problem for legibility for some users. I am going to be looking into a new Alphas Legend color that is a bit darker to improve clarity and contrast, while still retaining a soft/pastel feel. This will require entirely new renders and will likely take a little while to decide on and update. I will also be updating the base alphas color (in the renders, not the pantone) to better match the color they will be on the actual keys when I do this.
I wanted to wait until I received samples to make any drastic changes to the overall set, but it's been pretty clear from the responses so far that this is something a lot of folks aren't a fan of. I'd appreciate any more opinions on this, and I will also be posting a poll in the PBJ Discord server soon to get a clearer idea of the general consensus!

Quote
Numpad kit would be better with proper 1800 support rather than R5 blanks - see KAT Lich for example (3 more keys than current, and would provide correct colouring)
Any chance of an additional R3 up arrow? It's far from required, but it's something I personally added for my set as it adds comfort, and it's appeared in some sets since (Drifter, Space Cadet, Arctic, Hyperfuse, Iron, Monochrome).

I will definitely be updating the Numpad kit for better 1800 support, this was largely an oversight on my part! This should also be done by the next major update.
Adding a R3 up arrow should also be doable, and will be updated alongside the Numpad!


The overall response from Day 1 of the Interest check has been overwhelmingly positive and I am extremely glad that PBJ is something people are excited about. Thank you all for your feedback so far!

More updates to come!

Small update!

Regarding updating the Alphas legend color:
After a poll in the PBJ Discord server, an overwhelming majority voted against the change to darker legends. If this consensus changes in the future I will definitely consider changing them, but for the time being, it seems like most folks prefer the current color and pastel tone.


Cyrillic Alphas have been added!
I struggled to find a font that matched the latin font, but I think I landed on a fitting one! Let me know what you think, as well as if there are any issues I may not be aware of with the kit itself.


Hiragana & Katakana Alphas have received a font update!
While creating the Cyrillic kit I realized the fonts for the Hiragana and Katakana kits did not match the latin font at all. They have been changed to a font I really like that keeps the smooth round look. Again, please let me know what you think!


In other news, I am pleased to announce that KAT PBJ will be collaborating with LuxeCables to bring custom coiled cables for each accent kit!
I made a quick render here to preview what the cables may/will look like - Will update with proper examples from LuxeCables when they are available!


Once again, thank you all so much for the support and feedback! I will be updating the Numpad kit next as well as making minor changes across various items as per suggestions in the IC form.

See you soon with the next update!

Nice-looking set!  It's a great idea to have four different accent color options.

Regarding the Colevrak kit, I think there's a small mistake in Row 3:  "J" is in twice and "C" is missing.

In addition, please consider expanding the kit to support additional layouts:



For details, this post has a table of which layout(s) use each keycap, as well as a picture of each layout.

Thanks for catching that! I have no idea how that slipped past me, I'll fix that ASAP!

As for expanding into Colevrak+, I'll definitely take a look at adding in the additional keys. I didn't realize there was a version with even more compatibility, so I'll definitely check it out!

There will be an SEA proxy! Current plans are to have a proxy for NA, CA, EU, AS, SEA, and OCE. Still working things out before official announcements.

Big update today!
First and foremost, I am very excited to announce PBJ's vendors!
(Updated to announce Canadian vendor!)

NA: CannonKeys
EU: MyKeyboard.EU
AS: zFrontier
SEA: Monokei
OCE: Daily Clack
CAN: ApexKeyboards


Secondly, there have been several kit updates!

ICYMI: Cyrillic Alphas have been added, Hiragana & Katakana kits updated font in previous update!


- Blank kits are now available! Let me know what you think of these!


- Numpad kit has been overhauled, now supporting full 1800 boards, corrected colors, added non-homing 5, icon & text mods included, and a secondary blanks kit.


- Icon Mods have been fixed to use the correct adjusted KAT Icons!
This affected the Alt, FN, Menu, Scroll Lock, and Delete icons. Previous version used outdated icons, and all are now up to date!

- Colevrak kitting error has been fixed
Just a mislabeled key. This has been fixed and is now correct.

Thirdly, I'm happy to announce another collab with a very talented artist!

DEΔGcaps Bean
DEΔGcaps will be collaborating with KAT PBJ to create a PBJ themed Bean!
Below are examples of the sculpt. PBJ colorway will be teased later!




There are still updates in the works, I am looking into expanding the Colevrak kit and revisiting the spacebars offered in the 40s/Ortho kits.

The Interest check has been updated to include the new kit options. Feel free to Edit your previous form if you would like to choose the new options!

I'm personally not a huge fan, but if others like it it couldn't hurt. All feedback welcome!

I am also most likely going to be offering the Wedges deskmat design in all 4 accent colors (as seen in these preview renders) - will update as soon as I can confirm it can happen!

Hey all! Small update (copied from the discord announcement today):

Depending on what quotes I get from Keyreative, I am considering making full recolor novelty kits (instead of minor novelties as part of the accent kits).
This was a pretty common concern/point of confusion in the IC form responses and one of my main goals for this set was for it to be easy to digest (ha) and not overwhelming to choose your kits like some KAT sets in the past have been.
Splitting the novelties and accents into 4 kits each will increase the number of kits, but offer better flexibility and fuller options for you guys.

If I do go this route, it will require some of the novelties to be adjusted (for example, changing the jelly jar to have a strawberry/blackberry/etc,  instead of a grape for their respective colors) so it may take some time.

I will not be going forward with this until I hear back from Keyreative regarding the novelty production process though, so that no time or effort goes to waste if something needs fundamentally changed for production.

Thanks for your patience! I hope to have information for you guys on quotes or at least some update from Keyreative soon enough.
