Creme & beige is an inadvertant alias for Strawberries & Cream (i.e., they are the same exact colorway and shouldn't be separate vote items).

The Epson keycaps look good because of the neat font, I think.

Maybe we need a render photo of the spherical version *glancingatzslane*

Why do you always use all-caps modifiers?

My favourite is still Round 1 with its simple "Shift" / "Control" / "Backspace" text.

I'm not looking for new keysets ATM though, just a general remark.

So, if one were to reverse the Codemaster alphas/mods, you would get something very similar to Strawberries/Cream/Beige. Since 7bit wants to limit the number of colorways in this round, it occurred to me that just one of the Codemaster colorways, if offered in normal and "reversed" sets, could cover a lot of the cream/beige ground all by itself.

It also occurred to me that if you used Dolch colors (GE and GX) as the "Microcassette" colorway, they could double as Dolch SA by offering alphas and mods in both colors:

Agreed on the "a bit dark" thing. I've thrown some more light on them and updated the renders in the post above.

In addition to voting for my Codemaster colorways, I also I voted for "Microcassette", but my vote there is conditional upon the use of GE/GX as the main colors (with WFK as the legend color) and offering full mods and alphas in both.

Zslane, I strongly recommend you run a virtual group buy.
:?

People pm you their dream layout on their dream keyboard and when you received their payment, you deliver rendings so they can post them in the photo section and pretend that they just received their key caps from your group buy.
