[IC] GMK Bentō

Registering my personal opinion. I like the way you currently have the mods designed. Though the 9009 icon/text hybrid wouldn’t be bad. Dual legend alphas with sparse looking mods is an unbalanced look, imo.


#22

Yeah hybrid icon+text mods might look pretty cool? I mean, at the end of the day, I trust your judgment. You’re the designer. Just throwing out suggestions. :grinning:


#23

I really enjoy this color scheme, good work!


#24

ooo boy i like this set a lot!


#25

In general I much prefer Hirigana only over alphas+Hirigana. The latter just becomes a bit too busy, at least when the legends have the same color.

Something like Royal Alpha but with Hirigana could look incredible, but I do realize that’s not possible with doubleshot.

Hi all, after tonight’s Top Clack (thanks for the overall positive feedback btw :wink:) I thought it would be nice to clarify things about novelties.

The initial idea was to have an overall coherence and provide something minimalistic. I really liked the fact of having something simple, abstract, and geometrical. I didn’t want to fall into that cliché of making a bowl of rice, a sushi, or whatever. I mean, it sounded “too easy” for me.

I think that the novelties are currently matching to each other pretty well.

Let me know what do you think about em. I can totally rework the novelties!
I still have some leftovers novelties I didn’t use for this set ! But keep in mind that I’ll keep some of these bento novelties since there is a Rama Ranodised aluminium keycap incoming which I have already design in order to fit with the novelties…

that is why I’ll offer a Kobe kit:

Rendered kits by @Oblotzky


#28

Just start the GB already! I’m drooling!


#29

Q1 2019


#30

Actually, I’m really okay with that because Godspeed is going to blow my budget for the rest of the year.


#31

In my opinion, the novelties are the best part of this set! I really love them and I get that you were going for the minimal shapes of bento boxes. This most recent render by Oblotzky looks amazing. I’m hyped for this set!!


#32

I just got the first renders for the biip x Rama keycap project for Bentō!

Salmon red anodized aluminium with white enamel fill.
The icons are still in WIP phase at this moment! I might change it if ever I don’t want to have the same icon which is already included in the base kit.

Let me know what do you think of them :slight_smile:


#33

I like the top one, but if you can do the square with the chopsticks (the one in the banner) for the other one it would feel more like a definitive BENTO box artisan


#34

makes sense. Even just chopsticks could maybe do the trick :thinking:
Got to test stuff :smiley:


#35

If you do chopsticks you should angle them a tad kind of like \ / so it doesn’t end up looking like a pause key haha. I love the icon in the banner though so that’s still my vote :wink: Either way It’s a great addition.


#36

Woah, that’s pretty!
