[In stock] GMK Mint Chocolate - zFrontier Exclusive



GMK Mint Chocolate - zFrontier Exclusive

Designed by Cony_WANG from Geekhack

Inspired by the classic combination of mint and chocolate, GMK Mint Chocolate provides a refreshing burst of color to an understated brown colorway. Much like the addictive taste of mint chocolate, GMK Mint Chocolate is sure to bring a distinctive flavor to any keyboard.

The design of GMK Mint Chocolate drew upon several elements, the most obvious of which is its namesake - mint chocolate.

Chocolate mints have been around since the 1950s and one of the most popular post-dinner desserts. From cakes to ice creams, chocolate mint has found countless ways to please your sweet tooth, and now - in the form of a high quality Cherry profile keyset as well.

But wait, there's more! GMK Mint Chocolate also drew its inspirations from the vintage 1968 Olympia Colortip-S typewriter. The mint case gives the vintage typewriter a look that appears quite refreshing, even in the 21st century. There is a particular air of serenity that the typewrighter inspires, and think, if the keycaps for the Colortip-S was also mint colored, would it look even more soothing?

 

New custom color from GMK

The light cyan from GMK Mint Chocolate is a brand new custom color, not regularly found on GMK's color palette. 

Due to difficulties with manufacturing and design, there are only three GMK sets with a custom color that have successfully passed the group buy stage: GMK Triumph Adler, GMK Carbon, and GMK Keyboard & Co. Compared to 150, GMK's MOQ for custom color sets is 250 sets, and as a close partner to GMK, zFrontier has ensured that GMK Mint Chocolate will become a reality, and production is underway.

Options:

Base set (120 keys)

Addons kit (modifiers and ISO, 20 keys)


 

    GMK Mint Chocolate includes not only zF and GMK logo keys, but also rhomboid Windows keys on top of the regular ones. There are also modifier keys and numpad keys with dual, side-printed legends.
