Hey!

I would like to introduce you to GMK Modern Dolch!

Inspiration

Many of you have probably owned one or more variants of the timeless Dolch colour-way. I always loved the contrasted yet simple look between the 2 greys, however I always felt like something was a bit off: the colours just seemed a bit too warm and “muddy” to me. I really wanted to give a more muted and modern look to this timeless colourway, which is where Modern Dolch comes in. It keeps the simplistic look and the beautiful contrast between the 2 greys, but cooling the colours down and adding some fresh accents. The result is a very versatile set, which goes well with simple silver/black boards, vibrant teal boards and anything in between.

Here is a comparison between Modern Dolch and OG Dolch:

Design

Because of GMK's limited offering of stock colours, this set will be offering all custom colours. We're in the process of ordering plastic Pantone samples for this, instead of going the standard way of using a paper book. This way we can make sure the colour matching is perfect! We will be offering 3 items in this group buy. First is the base kit, the bread and butter of any GMK set. It will support a plethora of layouts combined with some fresh accents mentioned earlier! We're also excited to offer an icon mod kit, for those who want to complete the simplistic look of this set even more (finally no more R3 all text “Control” key in the midst of icons :thumb:). We also have one more special item in store, a cherry on top if you will! It’ll look awesome and made out of aluminium, more to follow later! ;);)

I'm aiming to get the same proxies as 9009 going for this, meaning nobody will be stuck with those nasty €20 administration fees on import! Dixiemech for the US and Mykeyboard for the EU are confirmed, and I will be in touch with Zfrontier for China and Cocobrais for Korea!
