[IC] JTK Tanjun 単純 - Novelties Added + Vendor Announcement!!
« on: Mon, 28 December 2020, 18:28:02 »


Hi everyone, I would like to present a new tripleshot hiragana sub-legend keycap set called "JTK Tanjun".
Tanjun (単純) is the Japanese word for simplicity. This set focuses on simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty.
The japanese word for this aesthetic is "shibui (渋い)".




This set will be produced by JTK using tripleshot technology, made with ABS in their CA (cherry) profile.

簡 (Kan): Simple
渋い (Shibui): Expression for a simple, subtle aesthetic of unobtrusive beauty.

UPDATES

22 January 2021:
- Added the novelties I've been working on!
- I'm also happy to announce that Vala Supply, SwitchKeys, and AlphaKeys will be the US, OCE, and CA vendors respectively!
- Some small updates to kitting: changed legend on 1.5u backspace to text, added 1u shift key to base kit, added ISO support + extra tab key to dark alphas kit
- Also added a couple renders with the new novelties

29 December 2020:
More
- Removed blue spacebars from base kit and put them in blue spacebars kit
- Removed "JTK" logo keys from base kit
- Fixed 1.5u backspace legend size
- Added F13 key
- Removed 1u and 1.25u "Code" keys from base kit
- Added a new render
- Fixed missing second "い" on "E" key


I'm still on the fence about adding a whole separate dark base kit. Just a little worried about being able to hit MOQ for two base kits.
More
Please let me know what you think.

Dark alphas are definitely the standout, I'm unsure I'd even bother with the light alphas - much better with the dark.

usually I don't like sets that have foreign sublegends for no reason, but here it ties in with the colors nicely, and the set is designed around *japanese* simplicity, so I'll let it slide.

kitting is nice, no F13 (that I can see? I might be blind) but everything else is present and that is very much appreciated.

Thanks for rendering on some upcoming boards, and not just a jane like everyone and their dog has done by now.

GLWIC!

1 vote for inverting alpha-mods base kit. I personally prefer black alphas and white mods.

As a few others have mentioned I think the dark alphas are the star of the show. A full dark base kit would be nice to see.

Love this !

It's simple as the name implies, but the blue works so well with black and white.

I see many dark base lovers, but the light base set is the winner for me.

Yea I messed up the sizing of the legend in the render so I have to fix that. That's the symbol JTK uses for their 1.5u backspace though...

Well bad new for me, I prefered the white base and would have bought the black alphas for the choice.

But I will not buy 2 entire base kits, that will be too expensive.

Could also do a mod kit and choice of alphas, for MOQ purposes should it come to that.

This is very nice, I really like the minimal aesthetic. Are the alphas a pure white like WS-2? Or is it more of a off-white. Would prefer pure if undecided.

I like the contrast of the white keys with the different sublegend colors. The dark set is nice although.

It's hard to tell on the renders, but for the F and J keys, are they scooped or bar ?

Thanks for the update.
Hopefully an EU vendor will be announced soon.

Is the kitting still the same? Personally for me it was perfect. I love both the base kit and the dark alphas, and it would be cheaper than buying 2 base kits.

I am not sure I really understand the novelties with the flowers and the 3 circle thing.
Since the theme is simplicity, maybe some Enzo circles 円相 or Torii gates 鳥居 or things related to Zen gardens could be an idea?
