Hello Keebtalk Community!
I am Raz, a web designer from Italy and I would like to present you my first keycap set project!
Quarantine here in Italy gave me the opportunity to develop some ideas that I had been dragging for some time.
I partnered up with my friend and designer Johnnymalandra and came up with the idea of GMK Avanguardia :
I chose an italian word that, as you can guess corresponds to “Avant-guard” or “Vanguard”,
referring to all those extreme, daring and innovative artists with a futuristic sight capable of anticipating their times.
This is the color palette we chose for this set:
We especially referred to Vasilij Vasil’evič Kandinskij and this painting to get the inspiration for the novelties:
I have seen that sets featuring themes related to modern pop culture have always been appreciated, so I thought, why not pay respect to a great artist who influenced it the most in shapes and colors.
More than content, this set draws its inspiration from Kandinsky’s words:
“Art goes beyond the limits in which time would like to compress it, and indicates the content in the future”
We wanted to give our concept a more personal interpretation by using a palette oriented towards the tech world and so the result is down here!
The Kits! (Updated)
Those are designed to be standard 900x400mm!
