[IC] GMK Ashes (GB starts Feb. 15th)


17 Dec 2019, 17:25

Hello Deskthority!

This is my first Interest Check for a keyset, GMK Ashes, A volcanic ash set with soft colors.


GROUP BUY STARTS Feb. 15th till March 16th 2020

Design & Inspiration
This idea originally began as a dark keyset, I was working with a lot of dark gray and red pantone colors, after rethinking what I was trying to achieve I decided to look at other keysets to get ideas, I decided to try to invert the colors similar to GMK Honeywell to test out that idea and really liked the look of it. I threw out the red because it just didn't fit in well with the set but kept the gray colors. Then I started messing with more with different shades of gray and came to love the final result of colors!

I present to you GMK Ashes:
Image OSA by BlindAssassin111 Kit Design
I plan on having support for standard TKLs to 65%, WKL bottom rows, HHKB, a numpad, UK-ISO and more! I am also working on getting some renders that will use Left Centered Legends for Mods! I really would love to give the legends a shot seeing as they are going to be on 9009 R3! I Originally had Pantones that I was going to use to color match but ended up switching to RAL colors that were very similar to the Pantones.
Image Ghost Kit (NOT FINAL)
Mod Colored Alphas, with support alice type boards built in, along with ISO keys for ISO users.
Extension Kit (NOT FINAL)
I am working on making a kit that will cover novelties, spacebars, a second B and support for some 40s boards.
Image Deskmats?
I'm working on making a couple of deskmats for the keyset! One simple design and one that is more busy and pays homage to a special game that I love. ;)

A lovely set, I wish it the best. Sadly I cannot participate this time, I've participated in two sets already this year.

I could imagine myself using this, but it would need some 'lava' accents. On Enter and Escape at the very least.

To keep the achromatic look to the set I unfortunately will not be adding any red lava novelties to the set, I do plan on trying to contact some artisan makers to look into possibly making some exploding volcano resin caps so that could be a possibility for you! :)

Very nice colour scheme! Unfortunately not at all a fan of what Dixie's done to the good old icon mods. Might still pick up a ghost-set and pair it with some other mods.

Really liking this! Very neutral and fits loads of colour cases so I am in. Can I assume that they are not listed yet on the vendors you have partnered with as it is not at mykeyboard.eu

Dark mods would be nice also.
