[IC] GMK Panels
« on: Sun, 14 February 2021, 15:22:21 »

Inspiration

The colors and color organization for this set were mainly inspired by the 1995-1996 Volkswagen Harlequin. But as I started reaching out to the keycap designer community for feedback, folks mentioned what the set reminded them of. Hopefully, the bold colors will remind you of something too.


(Note: I don’t own any of these images. If you do, and you want me to remove your image, please reach out. These images are used to show keyboard enthusiasts what inspired the creation of this product, and the product is not an attempt to recreate anything in the above photo.)

It may go without saying, but this set is influenced by both GMK Handarbeit and GMK Greg.

More

Colors

This set will be created using RAL K7 Classic colors with GMK stock color WS1 legends. These colors were chosen as they are preferred by GMK to ensure an accurate and quick color matching process. Additionally, as this is my first set, I am hoping that members of the keycap community will feel more comfortable pursuing the set because of the more standardized color choices.

It is worth noting that I have chosen a golden yellow RAL 1004 over a brighter yellow seen in some of the inspiration photos.


(NovelKey Cream for reference.)

Kits

The kiting methodology used in this set is to provide ample coverage within the base set while keep costs as low as possible. Because this set uses five different colors in a non-standard layout, I have tried to keep the base kit as slim as possible to reduce the cost of the set.

Addon kits such as NorDe, full ISO, Ortho, and maximized 40s kits are often not successful for first-time keycap designers. Because of this, I have opted not to include them. However, as a substitute, I have included basic support to these kits within the base kit. Should there be enough interest, I am more than happy to offer additional kits.

Please give feedback here or fill out the interest check form or reply here ifyou’d like to see this set supported in more kits.

Base Kit

GMK Color Panels base kit offers 60%, 65%, 75%, TKL, full size, and other layouts like these. Additionally, the base kit offers basic Alice support, basic ISO support, and basic 40s support.



Space Bar Kit

Again, to keep costs as low as possible, the space bar kit has been minimized. The goals of this kit are to expand upon the 40s support of the set, to give better alice support, and to offer a different colored 6.25u and 7u space bar for standard keyboard layouts. Something for everybody!

Should you find 1u or 3u keys a requirement for you to purchase a space bar kit, please fill out the IC form or reply here.


Desk Mats


Shirts

Honestly, I don’t know fully know what the logistics of distributing this will look like before landing a vendor. If there is enough interest, we will make it happen though. This image is not the final product. I will hope for something with a more relaxed fit, embroidered rocket, and potentially a pocket!


Renders

Feedback

As I already mentioned, this is my first keycap set. Here are some endorsements that may ease anyone that is wary buying from a new designer.

I'm really impressed. As someone who searches for a harlequin golf to buy a couple times a year I feel I must get in on this. Only thing that makes me sad is 40s losing a lot of the teal. That can be rectified somewhat with the teal spacebar though and 40s in base is always a welcome sight for GMK.

Very well done.

Thanks! I've been going back and forth if I want a Teal spacebar in base. I've literally thought about it for hours lol. If the base kit isn't too expensive, I will add one in.

Very cool, I guess f13 would work but maybe a yellow tilde for HHKB layout to keep the color block consistent? Not sure if it would be worth for such a specific case though.

I remember seeing harlequins when they were new and being a child who didn't know what I was looking at wonder why they they didn't get the right colored body panels out of the junkyard.  As a VW nerd I appreciate this set, but like the car it is based off of I am not sure I appreciate it enough to buy it.  I am gonna keep watching though, who knows.

I actually strongly considered this going into the project, but I decided against it because it seemed too easy. The road deskmat isn't doing too hot on IC form... Maybe I will have to reconsider it.

Damn... this is actually... good. Certainly goes against conventional design practice but... it just works. Everything looks intentional and purposeful instead of chaotic. I think this is deserving of an unironic "stunning and brave" lol. Good job. Also really liked that you added a cream switch to your color chips pictures. I don't know why I haven't seen more people do that, or why I didn't think of that. Such a great way to help give the impression of the colors using something that a lot of people will have a reference to. very smart!

(As an aside, the first deskmat design seems very uninspired when you look at how you pulled off the coloring scheme on the base kit. Perhaps look into something that fits better, may panels alternating the colors on the mat?)

Thank you! I wanted to use a ws1 key or something, but still waiting for my GMK ring to come in. I figure lots of folks had a NK cream lying around.

I will explore R5 after picking vendors... I have heard it makes the kit more expensive, but i am not sure to what extent. Keeping costs lower is my priority right now.

would you consider F13 key, R0 top row and R5 bottom row?
may be a seperated add on kit for R0 and R5, i want to try a full cherry profile keyset?
although this is a must-buy keyset for me  :thumb:
best keyset of 2021

F13 is in there! I would LOVE to do R0 and R5, but I need to determine how that will impact costs first.

Harlekin-themed keycaps, consider me in!

For the deskmats, please consider the  VW Joker seat pattern. All Harlekins came from the factory with Joker-seats, which have a great pattern.

A fan of the set made one up!!



Perhaps we will work on something similar but different enough to avoid any IP issues. I saw a fabric vendor made this up. Maybe I will look into something like this too.



Either way, road deskmat is GONE. Press K to give respects.

I definitely would be down for a deskmat that matched the harlequin golf seats. That dark gray with those colors works so well. I highly doubt you would have any IP issues with that but im no lawyer so I guess take that for what it is lol.

handarbeit has historical significance but is fugly.
This is oddly attractive but reminds me of handarbeit, which I hate.
So I'm torn--buy it because it looks good and kind of says, "**** you" to handarbeit (for me. I'm sure that's not the designer's intent)...
Or don't buy it because it reminds me of handarbeit?

I'm gonna go with the former.

Hey ghost! It was my original intention to use the car, but before I got into IC, I got a little scared because i REALLY don't want to step on VW's toes for IP issues. However, it is getting to the point where there is enough interest in the project that it is becoming worthwhile that I invest in some real answers here. I'll do some research this weekend and figure out what I can and can't do, and if I don't find a solid answer I will ask for help. I've added it to my to-do list.

Thanks for your interest in the project!

Considering people sell pins that are much more accurate VW representations, id think youre safe.  But if you really want to be safe, the VWoA folks are pretty well involved with the VW enthusiast community and might be open to licensing.
