[IC] Milkyway Cultured - Group Buy is LIVE!!
« on: Thu, 24 February 2022, 00:26:56 »
Milkyway Cultured


About

The colorway was mainly inspired by one of James Bond's apparel in the latest movie.
Since it is a fashion inspired set, I have tried to incorporate fashion elements into the designs.
While working on the novelties, I have grown a liking of the mustache designs, hence you will see some of those in the novelties.

Is this basically a rehash of Templar but with slightly different color tones and different novelties basically?

I like this one John! My only substantive critique would be that some of the novelties have significantly different line thicknesses - the glasses stand out to me on this. Overall looks nice, GLWIC!

So people could use Alice boards with just the shift keys. Also, it is not like GMK when adding an extra B would increase the cost of the base kit. (I know because I am the Milkyway rep ;))

Milkyway Templar is by another designer and not related to this set at all.

Seeing the words 'cultured' and 'milk' (from MW) next to each other had my brain confused that this was going to be a set about yogurt or something lol, maybe 'classy' or 'dapper' would be better. Overall not a big issue tho.

Clean set, gj John. Surprised there is no fancy shoe novelty.

Or it  could be a reference to the ancient art of milking immortalized in the 1475 painting titled “the milking table” by bros bangertini

Love the keycap set, gray and blue are my 2 favorite colors. I would love it though if the Tie keycap was available in blue as to use it as an Escape Key. Are you going to be working on any neat artisans for the set?

I actually wanted to run this set in icon+text as it give better retro vibes. I totoaly forgot about it when making base kit render. It is a easy fix for me. I will update the renders.

I hope the 40s base kit can be split into two kits: 40s alphas kit and 40s + extra mod kit
Because I am planning to get the base kit but I don't want to get redundant alphas
Wishlist: 1) nice thick Alps caps; 2) Cherry profile POM;
More
Wishful-list: 1) We order from keyboard-layout-editor.com; 2) usable Trackpoint module for all keyboards

NeXT non-ADB keyboard (AAE)

I know it’s not very orthodox, but I think this set would be great with an accented caps lock.

I think adding leather shoes keycaps on the shift keys would look even nicer
