I like the colour, the icon only mods abs the hiragana.

The sub legends in the keycap render looks a bit odd though.

Intriguing color choice, not convinced yet on how L9 color blends in with the alpha and the mods color.
Nonetheless, GLWIC!

Why icon mods but text R5? I know other sets have done this before, but for some reason the contrast is really stark here

It's actually a very standard layout, where only shift, caps, return, tab, and Backspace are icon-only. It's particularly standard in Germany, where GMK is based.

Love this, be aware that alt alphas for gmk dont always do well, but i think it looks good, would like to see custom angles for board renders as opposed to stock krk ones. Good work!

Do you have a gmk ring and ral chips? I think your choice of colors is questionable and I have a feeling they won't translate the way you think they will.

Hey there, I do have a GMK color ring and a RAL D2 book. Like i mentioned, I have matched it to the best of my ability. If you have a book too and would like to comment on if some things could be lighter or darker, do let me know.

Hello all,

Just an update to say that this project is still alive. Do check the main update tab to see more.

But main thing that i want to address, the designer that i comissioned for deskmats seems to have ghosted me.
So on that note, i am now looking for a new artist, and for this i apologise.
If anyone has an artist they would liek to reccommend, do drop me a message and ill take a look at them.

Thanks for your understanding.

If you've received quotes that means you must be planning on running this soon. Good luck with sale! I love the color of the alphas! Might have to hop in on a base kit!

I really like the color choices but not the biggest fan of Kono as it usually means an expensive base, GLWIC nonetheless!

Hello again everybody!

Its been a while since the last update.
But here we are, with some actual samples now. I have to say I am quite satisfied with the way the deskmats turned out.
And also with the slightly reworked novelty kit, I feel like we are getting close to be able to set a GB date and finally get this started!

Hello everybody!

Its just a bit more than 2 weeks to go till the GB starts and as promised, one more set of renders have been done.
For the metal artisan, I am in the final stages of discussions and should be able to get a preview out in another week at most.
And also previews for the collab with MelonKeys! I was extremely excited for it the moment i saw the proposed color way in our discussions.
What i did not expect though, was that it was not going to be only the DM/DMG sculpts but also the 2 new scuplts from them!
I hope you are as excited for them as I am.

As always, do let me know what you think and thanks for your time
