[IC] GMK Hammerhead | July 6 - 31
« on: Mon, 19 November 2018, 13:42:45 »



Introduction

Better were the days when mastery of seas came not from bargains struck with eldritch creatures, but from the sweat of a man's brow and the strength of his back alone. You all know this to be true. Gentlemen. Ladies.

-Captain Hector Barbossa


Hi everyone! Quick introduction. So I'm Chad and I'm the artisan behind KeyLabs Keycaps that I run with my pal Andrew. We're still a little new, and I spend a lot of time lurking, but I've had this keyset idea floating around my mind for a good while and really wanted to take a solid shot at the design. So I present to you, respectfully, the humble beginnings of GMK Hammerhead.

I want this set to evoke the feel of chilled, oceanic spray against your cheeks and the roll of deep blue-grey swells under a stormy sky. To spring forth the cry of gulls, heard over the ship's billowing sails, while your fellow sailors throw dice and spin tales of the great monsters of the deep and of loved ones from home. Surging white caps and cold, uncharted northern waters await. All of this splendor packed mysteriously into a GMK set.

Or something along those lines. I'm not a novelist.

Aluminum Artisans

We decided to design and manufacturer our own aluminum keycaps to match Hammerhead. These are based on GMK R1 profile, with a flattened top face and resin infill in the shark tooth cutout. They actually feel amazing on your fingers, we're super happy with how they turned out! You can expect these to be available on our website for a group buy at some point this month.



Cables

We've partnered up with Space Cables to offer some really fantastic USB cable designs to pair with Hammerhead. Available during the Group Buy window at Space Cables.

The Fn row is reversed compared to "traditional" coloring. F1-F4, F9-F12 is traditionally the alpha colorway, and F5-F8 and the nav keys are the mod colorway.

Just adding that bc I feel it'd look better with the normal styling

I dig the colorway!

For the F-row from F1 to Pause, Iíd personally prefer grey/blue/grey/blue (aka traditional hiney said) as opposed to blue/grey/blue/grey (like you have mocked up now) but thatís not a dealbreaker for me necessarily.

Edit: missed the alpha colored WASD in the kit mock-up

In addition for the F-row from F1 to Pause, Iíd personally prefer grey/blue/grey/blue (aka traditional hiney said) as opposed to blue/grey/blue/grey (like you have mocked up now) but thatís not a dealbreaker for me necessarily.

Thats a fair point. I'll work on playing with the F-row and seeing how it looks. I could always include the alternative scheme (shown in the renders) in a kit possibly. And I had considered the WASD issue as well and put the alpha colored ones in the base kit, they're just placed below. Thanks for the input! Really appreciate it.

Yep thatís certainly an option, but could get pricey including both is all.

My mistake on the WASD keys, thanks for pointing that out :)

I'll join if there is an ergo-plank kit like what GMK Royal Navy R2 or GMK Space Cadet did. Don't be like GMK Carbon R2 expecting people to pay $270 for the minimun necessary to cover a 40% board. :)

Gave it the ol switcheroo. I do like this a bit better. The design has some more natural flow to it.

The alphas are more of a very subtle-light steel blue/grey color. I feel as though it ties in with the oceanic "master and commander with a bit of an edge" feel I was hoping for. But always interested in hearing more thoughts about it.

It does bring a vibe of ocean dolch, but much better in my opinion. Some R4 novelties would be dope too.

Actually, White is one of the 1st colors I think of when being on the water. Marine coolers, boat hulls, cushions so many aspects of boating and fishing are directly tied to a nice clean white.

Yeah... It's sort of hard to tell what it's really supposed to be, and might turn out poorly when molded.  Maybe a replacement novelty could be gills?

 I know you are still actively iterating on the design, but are these going to be all custom colors? If so, it would be helpful to see matching Pantone or RAL colors.  If there is one thing that recent group buys have taught me, it is that getting these gray/blue/green colors right is difficult.

Agreed on getting the Pantone/RAL colours, but I'm really loving this set! I'm not the biggest fan of the different coloured WASD for the base kit, but I imagine that has something to do with the Hammerhead theme? If there was an option to have the WASD match the rest of the base alphas I'd probably go with that, but I can definitely jam to this too.

I think you've got a good set on your hands!

Take another look at the base kit -- he included WASD alphas to match the rest of the alphas, in addition to the accent-colored WASD keys.  The ASD is in the far right of the R3 line in the bottom right corner of the kit render, and the W is one line up, more to the left.

Agreed on getting the Pantone/RAL colours, but I'm really loving this set! I'm not the biggest fan of the different coloured WASD for the base kit, but I imagine that has something to do with the Hammerhead theme? If there was an option to have the WASD match the rest of the base alphas I'd probably go with that, but I can definitely jam to this too.

I think you've got a good set on your hands!

Take another look at the base kit -- he included WASD alphas to match the rest of the alphas, in addition to the accent-colored WASD keys.  The ASD is in the far right of the R3 line in the bottom right corner of the kit render, and the W is one line up, more to the left.

Yeah the default WASD is absolutely part of the base kit, it is a bit hidden though so no worries. I'm a bit selfish and really love the mod color WASD and wanted to throw it in the base kit.

As far as Pantone colors go, I'm talking with GMK right now about pricing for the kits. I sent them the Pantone versions so I will go ahead and add the pantone colors to this post when I have a minute.

If I'm not mistaken, your base kit supports Ortho layouts right out of the box.  This gets a +1 from me and I hope other designers follow your lead!  It really doesn't take much extra to have basic Ortho support and many of those 1u keys are used by other unique layouts too.  The only modification I would make to support my preferred ortho layout would be the addition of an R3 1u colon in mod colors.  You have enough R3 to support the Ortho layout, but I usually prefer to use the mod-colored colon which is what is often included with separate Ortho kits.

This looks great! I would love to see a render on a blue/grey QXP.
