Hey everyone. Today, I've got a fun set to share.

I call it, GMK Plum.







More can be found here http://imgur.com/a/GiXpQ (Some pictures are not colour accurate, they are labelled as such)

GROUP BUY IS HERE https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-jessica-gmk-plum-custom-keycap-set?mode=guest_open

=======

This is a very unique set (as far as I'm aware!) and one I'm very proud of. The colours are calm, cool and original, ones you've likely never seen on a set before.

It will be in standard Cherry/GMK profile (1-1-2-3-4-4), made with original Cherry legends and thickness. You know the drill by now, I'm sure.

This set will be produced to the best of my ability. I don't have the ability to say "I'm going to make this happen, regardless" but I'm going to do my best to make it happen, because I really want it to come to life.

To address some common questions I'm sure to get:

Yes, the alphas and modifiers are custom colours. (The red keys are not custom, but I don't think RO1 has been used on a set before.)

Yes, I have done the best I can do offer complete support to all common layouts.   
As is, this keyset will support: Standard ANSI, ISO (sorry non-English speakers :/), 1800, WKL, HHKB, FC660M, standard 75%, includes both scoops and barred homing keys, as well as some other oddball layouts.

Yes, this idea is original. I did not draw inspiration from any other sets. I literally had a picture of a plum www.mvfruit.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Angelino_plum_03.jpg for my inspiration.

No, I will not be handling the group buy myself. I simply don't have the time or resources to handle this it myself. 

Based on the results of the poll I had live for multiple weeks, I will be running GMK Plum on Massdrop. ~75% of people wanted Massdrop, while only 25% of people wanted Originative. That's just an easy decision for me to make.

I will do my best to answer any question you have!

With warm regards,
Jessica

I was considering more red, but I felt it was just... too strong. This set is understated, and I didn't want to mess with the fragile balance. :)

Yeah, you're right. I can't really think of anywhere to add any more red - I respect the time you put into this colorway!

This is the perfect set for me. I was talking to my brother about what colour sets would go with my gold lustro case (as I sort of regretted going gold). He said plum and I was like there isn't anything like that. Now this shows up. Count me in!

I usually am not very fond of colorful f-row, but in this case I think the red f5/f6/f7/f8 will look great. IMO you should also add red Print Screen, Scroll Lock and Pause for symmetry.

I considered it, but I don't want to overdo the red. The line between subtle and gaudy is a fine one

I've seen the set a few times before, but would you be able to upload the pic directly to the op? This way that'll help catch the interest of others immediately (and will help those too lazy to click the link).

Thanks, cute dreams!

Nope. This keyset isn't Penumbra, and I am proud to say it draws no inspiration from other keysets (Aside from Hyperfuse, which is where I got the reference for what layouts to support and what row the keys had to be.)

Sorry to disappoint, but I hear GMK Penumbra is coming soon!

Thanks for the full ISO-UK coverage and 1800! I am in! Is it possible to add a couple 1u Ctrl/Alt keys to help with the slightly more unconventional layouts like 65/75% layouts and the newer style 1800 ones with 1u modifier row? I know there are a couple of R4 1u grey blanks in the render, but legended 1u ones would be even better!

I support your set, but that's an insane statement! Unless you were sat in a room from birth never seeing a keyboard then it's safe to say on a sub-conscious level you were influenced by lots of other set  :))

I refuse to have any Ctrl on my set. I don't like how it looks. I wouldn't count on 1.25u blanks, though. I'm happy with where the set is now. My next set, should it ever happen, I will definitely change this.

Unfortunately, the MOQ is 250 :/ That's just the way GMK is with custom colours. Nothing I can do there.

FYI, I am the designer of the set :P Just use a different name on GH than reddit.

I won't discuss pricing publicly yet since I haven't picked a vendor, but pricing wise, it's very reasonable for what you're getting. When the GB goes live, you'll probably be shocked at how low it is, actually.
