Background on The Deep Deskmat:
I came up with this idea while I was cleaning up my desk and thought to myself,
wouldn't it be fun if I could expand my desk without buying a brand new bigger one?
This inspired me to design a fun visual illusion of "expanding" my desk to be deeper.

I also recently got an white & black keycaps for my keyboard and wanted something
to match the look. I would love to get your feedback on the design!

Thank you to everyone for the kind words and support! :)

The mat looks cool, I suggest removing the text.

Interesting concept, I would suggest rendering some alternate angles too as it's not all too common to view your deskmat from a perfect top-down perspective. Also agreed with Tyson about removing the text. gl!

Thank you for the feedback!! I'll make renders of the different angles and add them here:) I'll also remove the text since more colors might not necessarily mean dark too!

good to hear that you plan to add more colorways too. I thought that the name already killed the possibility haha.

Looking forward to seeing samples of this :D
I'm also curious how well the effect will translate in person. I think "optical illusion" themed desk mats have a lot of potential overall, nobody has really done it before (afaik)
