Blending in. This set isn’t about the keyboard grabbing all the attention on your desk, it’s a set you’d see in a remote cabin in the snowy mountains, the type a famous writer would flee to to finish the successor to their breakthrough debut, far away from all distractions. They should really call their spouse, it’s been a while since they’ve been in contact.

I can see this selling a lot.

2021 year of the abandonment of the mod/alpha segregation. Keycaps now mix freely regardless of the colour of their plastic. Stick that in your mod coloured pipe and smoke it.

I like the idea more than I thought I would  ;)

The alignment for some of the legends is a bit weird - the num row keys etc look odd being centred while the rest of the set is left aligned.

Any plans to get some board renders made?

Not something I really thought I'd like at first but this is great!

The only thing I'd say is make sure the contrast between each key's legend and base color is around the same. It'll look very odd otherwise.

This is a very treeleaf moment. Sometimes there are so many leaves that you cannot see them individually.
And sometimes people blend into the leaves as well

I’ll be reaching out for samples ASAP! Meanwhile, every single person who fills out the IC form helps

What is missing from the extension sets for 40s to work? Legit question, I’m seeing cross-eyed from staring at kits...

NorDeUk or more would mean 2 more sets. Wonder if they’d reach MOQ.

I really like the urban camo theme on this, but regarding overall arrangement, have you considered referencing digi-camo shapes more? its camo, but sort of too broken up for my taste? Kind of an oxymoron though.

I played with a bunch of pattern options. Tried making it as random as possible, but it didn't feel right. Ended up manually creating this pattern, making sure to balance colors (tricky with the space bar).

Just updated the Auxiliary set to include more keys for 40's, ortho's, and languages. It was a small change but hopefully has a large impact on the layouts and languages supported.
