New Deskmat IC Form


GMK Seafarer

"Master of the seven seas"

Inspiration

The original colorway was inspired by the uniforms of our Navy sailors on the high seas, and with novelties inspired by sailing and navigation.

Why?

I love minimal sets, LOVE blue, and have always been fascinated with
everything about sailing and the sea but could not really find a nice set
that would fit my requirements, so here we are.

Colors


Kits/Renders

Please note that renders do not always accurately show what the set will look like. Please take this into
consideration as different peopleís monitors are different, and hex codes are not always correct.
Lighting also is a huge factor when it comes to rendering. Please consider looking at the base kit for the most accurate render.


The Captain's Kit

Supports terminal ISO, 1800, Tsangan, HHKB, and most 96%.


The Quartermaster's Kit

Anchor, Wheel, Northstar, Flags, Compass, Waves, Northstar(1.25u), Map


The Sailor's Kit

6u centered + off centered, 6.25u, 7u, 2.75u, 2.25u, 2u, 1.25u


Anchors - Deskmat


Topography - Deskmat




Renders

Iron165 by Smith + Rune. Render done by Bachoo




RAMA U80 by RAMA




J_02 By ProtoTypist




Iron180 By Smith + Rune





Nemui by Bachoo






Vendors

US - Mechs N Co
CA - AshKeebs
EU - MyKeyboard.EU
CHINA - KBDFans
SEA - Ilumkb
OCE - Daily Clack
Korea - Monstargears



Collabs

Custom Cables - SpaceCables

Metal Artisans - Asero Foundry
(Images Coming Soon)

Artisans - Fraktal, Latrialum

To Do List:

- Announce Vendors
- Collabs

Code bad; please consider System or Super :) Other than that, really nice kits. And awesome novelties!

Edit: It looks like you're missing a second 2.25u Shift in the base kit (there's a 2u instead). You might want to fix this if you're going for comprehensive coverage. Also — and this is optional — 1c keys would be a nice addition to the spacebars kit.

Edit2: If it helps, you can probably drop 00 from the base kit.

It is a 2.25u shift, just the render is incorrect, i'll look into it.

love the colors! set looks so simple yet so good

- I like the numpad in base kit
- I like two escapes, the two enters, and the two arrow sets
- I like iso support

- can one of the backslashes be removed?
- add 2nd 'b' in base kit?
- add F13 key in base kit?
- chance for R5 bottom row?
- change text mods to icon mods?

Very clean. Keys look great.

This 10000% needs a Fraktal collab. Maybe with a brass anchor.

I'd be interested in how colored mods look.

Adding F13 is fine, it's more useful than 00 anyway. +1

There is no need to add a second B to the base kit. Do people even stop to look before they ask this, lol? All of the spacekeys required for Alice layouts are in the spacebars kit, so that's where the B should stay. (If you're looking to use the set on an Alice board without getting the spacebars kit, you can use numpad 0 together with Shift keys, as per usual.)

Including the second B in base only truly makes sense when spacekeys are offered in two different child kits (e.g. spacebars and 40s). In that case, having the key in base allows buyers to choose which of the two kits they want to get. On the other hand, when there is only a single kit containing spacekeys, there is no such benefit to having B in base, and the pricing difference that it makes to the spacebars kit isn't at all significant from what I've seen.


- can one of the backslashes be removed?

Which & why?
