Hi everyone,

I want to share some feedback from my end on some of the (over 200) IC Form entries I got so far:

Quote
I dont need the numpad so the base kit could be smaller for me (preference)

No, sorry. I absolutely dislike that approach on keysets personally. I understand why very popular sets take that route, but this doesn't make sense for me and my take on keycap design.

Quote
Red color way accent as there is already blue and green
Quote
take same alphas(arabic) and make them red instead of green or blue

I am aware of blue arabic sublegends (HAD), but imho green hasn't been done, but ofc I could be proven wrong. But red I would definitely stay away from. Red sublegends in my head are associated with Cyrillic.
Btw...if you like red, strongly consider GMK Red Alert by my buddy break. It's in GB right now.
If you really meant 'accent' as in accent kit, I think the green sublegends combined with red accents would not match.

Quote
NorDe WITH SUBLEGENDS!!!

What exact sublegend would you put under Ä, Ö and Ü?
Jokes aside...As I am german myself, I would love to have a NorDE kit myself. But not only doesn't it make sense in this particular set, but also I would be worried about it hitting MOQ.

Quote
maybe novelties with colors of the flags of countries that speak arabic? algeria for instance has orange.
Quote
Novelties, maybe something like arabic coffee pot (this would go really well with the green since Arabs drink green coffee!), arabic lantern. Just cultural stuff
Quote
some novelties/cool mods would be cool
Quote
some cool novelties with maybe icons from the arab world
Quote
Novelty keys

No. Just no.

Quote
Yes, I would love to have LED caps, perhaps included in the base kit?

I really thought about windowed caps, but the base is full as is. Maybe I have a cool idea for another kit. Who knows. Heard that a couple of times now. But don't count on it.

Quote
Iso keys in base

Base kit has basic ISO support. Won't go any further than that. Sorry.

Quote
I would cancel the collaborations with gothcaps because it don't mach the Arabic/Islamic theme.
U serious, bro? Would RAMA, Alpha Keycaps or anything else match better?
What if I told you, Mr. Goth himself is an Arab?
BOOM! Collab makes sense again...

Quote
Deskmats, but it's already on your To-Do List :)
Quote
DESKMATS!!!!

Donezo. Check OP.

Quote
Literally a TON ongoing feedback about Icon+Text mods

I made a specific IC FORM just for that. Please go ahead and vote for it.

That's it for today.
STAY SAFE!

Hi everyone,

I'd like to announce a new collaboration, which I am very happy about:


I am an avid artisan collector and with Yohan's sculpts everything began for me.
We planned this for a long time and I finally can announce it.
Together, we will bring you an awesome looking Keypora to match your set of GMK Classic Arabic!

Stay safe!

For what it's worth, HAD is doubleshot German, SAA/SPA is the OG Cherry Arabic stuff. Green has been done in Hebrew, following that logic of red being done with Cyrillic. My preference 100% is blue here but it's probably too late now.

+1, this makes the most sense. Hopefully it's not too late!

Hey all...

...what can I say?

You voted!
I listened!





This seems pretty obvious to me - so BASE, 40s and BLUE ACCENTS are now 'Icon+Text Modifiers':






Also, here are some new, dope renders with the correct, new and improved Greek Sublegends:


   
   


All existing renders will be adapted to 'Text+Icon Mods' now...
STAY SAFE!

renders with icon mods are so much better... no icon mods is definitively a "no-go" for me :/

I am very proud to show off the result of my first Collab for GMK Classic Arabic!

It turned out exactly how I wanted it to look!
The design has been made by me and Yohan turned a drawing into an incredible piece of art!





Say hello to 'Habibi Keypora'

Re: [IC] GMK Classic Arabic ...and more | R4 or R5? YOU DECIDE!

Can you please put a extra minus and plus key in the alphas sets (especially the Greek one). That way I can use the alphas with other sets without having to buy a whole base kit.

Came here to say this. Please consider adding those 2 keys AND a tab key, as this would allow people to also stretch Base + alphas to fit 2 boards.

Damn. I must have overread that comment back then.
Actually, that's a very good idea.
I will most likely add those 3 keys to the Greek kit.

I'm not really a deskmat guy (for one thing, my desk is too small) but these look absolutely excellent!
