Ja, see here: https://omnitype.com/blogs/timelines/gmk-thinkcaps

However, don't believe the date there, since the info from GMK is relatively old. Lots of other sets that ran before ThinkCaps have since been pushed farther back, so my optimistic guess for ThinkCaps would be late Q1 2022 (like March), my pessimistic guess is well into Q2 2022. Just conjecture, though.

Best,
Johannes

Hi sefixmm,

We did round 1 of samples and will be doing round 2.

That's about it for now, thanks for asking. ;)

Hey everyone,

It's time to send in the graphics for the novelties. After months of not thinking about this set, a fresh look made me realize that the media keys* should probably be left-aligned.

Most GMK/Cherry legends are left-aligned, with the exception of the win and menu keys. For cohesion, I think left-aligning is best.

What do you think? Poll: https://forms.gle/BNbWhSYEfLJMjTZv5

Left-aligned vs centered



PS. I had to slightly alter the icons in order to meet GMK's requirements for minimum line thickness. I went with the open source Font Awesome play/pause and volume icons.

(*) Only the icons shown above will be modified. Dots remain the same.

I prefer centered, but in reality, both are great.

Edit, after looking at a keyboard with a GMK set, everything is align on left, so, yes, left is better  :)

In reality the colours will seem darker.

Got my accent kit in today and was quite disappointed. I know you said it will seem darker in reality but I believe this is a departure from the thinkpad blue entirely. This picture is with me drowning it with light to make it as bright as possible. Any normal or natural light it is still very dark and I see it as more of a dark grey than a blue as shown in the second picture. Not sure if the accents kit ended up with a different blue than the base kit pictures from above but I could not get it even close to that hue of blue.

I found the blue to be very subtle in shade, but it seems pretty close to the classic Thinkpad blue.

I don't disagree... the blue colour behaves strangely under low light.

We got samples of several RALs and Pantones, but in the end we matched the blue Enter key from a new T420 keyboard.

It definitely looks better on a board, but I'm still disappointed that not everyone is happy, particularly those who don't have a Thinkpad to compare to.

Came here to say I am also disappointed in the blue. It’s not saturated enough, and it’s darker than it should be.
