Hey everyone,

Welcome to the interest check for GMK Vaporwave  :cool:

This set is inspired by glitchy aesthetics and holographic anime propaganda.


You can follow the development of this keycap set either on this post or over at naturalpack.org, whichever is easier for you.

Please leave a comment with your thoughts and suggestions for this set.

Newest updates will be towards the top of the post.


About GMK Vaporwave

This set comes dipped in lavender and an indigo purple, topped with neon pink and bright aqua legends. Base set will be an "all-in-one" style, so no need to buy multiple kits.

Update 3/19/19

Update 3/17/19

- Color Update: I pulled the Pantone plastic chips back out today to re-assure myself of the colors. The neon pink is definitely a very present shade, the kind that catches the eye and then burns it if you look for too long. Very bright and saturated. If all goes well with the GMK color matching process, the pink should stand out very nicely on top of the lavender. I'll do my best.

Update 3/16/19

- Base set has been finished, which you can view in the images below.
- Confirmed base set with GMK
- Confirmed Pantone shades with GMK

Here is a photo of the Pantone chips and a render on white:

Looks cool!

A nice mix between Laser and hyperfuse :)

Btw on that first render there is a blank key not sure if that is correct or not

I like the alphas. I hope you sample with GMK because the paleness of the entire palette reminds me of Necro and no one wants that again

Really like this aesthetic and love the inclusion of the ISO kit - nice to see for a user like myself.

It feels like a nicer laser, or a cross of laser and taro.

I do wonder about the contrast on the alphas though - may not be as clear irl as the renders

Just as a point of note a lot of designers are moving away from pantones due to the better ability of GMK to match RAL and standard ABS colours. Given some of the wild differences some GBs have had from initial render to execution with pantones it may be something to bear in mind

I really like the alphas a lot, something about the contrast with the mods feels slightly off but it'll probably just take some getting used to - looks great overall, honestly. Definitely willing to participate.

I like complete base kits like this. Paired with a small novelties kit and/or a small spacebars kit (split, 6u, etc.) doesn't hurt. Glad to see ISO and numpad in base. Very pretty colorway.

Wasn't keen on first look but it's definitely growing on me.

Great to see ISO UK support, the trend of completely removing it from GMK sets is saddening.

Interested. I would like to see these:

1. novelties in yellow, dark(black, blue) which describe coconut tree, statue, racing car or fish?
2. extra kits with Japanese only alphas and icon mod?
3. colevrak kit if possible(maybe too much to ask)

Mods seem pretty close to skeletor. Not necessarily bad thing, just noting it. Maybe a more rich purple/pink? Otherwise, love the alphas and overall aesthetics.

Definitely an interesting colorway! Not quite my personal style, but I bet this will go over really well with the community. If you were to replace the pink legends with the cyan accent color I would be in for a set, but I honestly think that would take it to far away from your chosen theme. Anyways awesome work & GL with the rest of the process on this! :thumb:

I don't know, I think that it doesn't look as vaporwave as it could.
How about going light pink with purple legend on the alphas?
