Joyland

Let's have some fun! Inspired by the iconic entrance sign of the Joyland Amusement Park, cotton candy, carousels and sweet childhood memories, I came up with this idea for a new project for a keycap set. The Joyland Park had some beautiful rides and attractions, it's a shame that it closed after 55 years in operation. Until 2004 it used to be a spooky ghost town, the perfect scenario for a bizarro circus settlement. This keycap set is meant to celebrate the fun times with muted colors and an affordable price tag. Hope you enjoy it.

The monokit is designed to be affordable as an entry level Cherry profile ABS doubleshot keycap set. The current iteration covers the majority of ANSI MX stem mechanical keyboard's layouts. Given the manufacturer limitations, international options are not available yet. With the current kit, it is possible to cover practically any 60% in the market, the Leopold FC660M and 65%/75% variants (Whitefox, TADA68, M65-A), TKLs, 1800 layouts and numpad boards (such as the ZZ96, RS96, Leopold FC980M or the Duck Lightsaber). Thanks Wonka for this list.
The 40% family is currently not covered, but it could be covered with blanks if there's some interest in that. Same for the Planck and ErgoDox. If you have a 40% layout, a Planck or an ErgoDox, please vote in the poll available in this link below so I can gather interest regarding a kit for these layouts:

Mind you, this is an initial sketch for the project and I'd love to gather feedback about the design. Due to manufacturing limitations, it is impossible to offer novelty icons right now. I added an option to the poll, so if there's interest I'll try to add support.

Both actually look great, man. I guess I lean to this one a bit more because of the teal and the pink.

Which are you most excited about MiTo? This or the laser? I honestly adore them both. Amazing work and love the colour theme, easily puts a sweet taste in your mouth. Can't wait for it to drop!

I have a deep fascination with the 50’s and the astatic that came from that era. From the color combinations to the lines of it all (mid-century modern). I had to have Jukebox and absolutely love it on my board. I can’t wait for this to drop and will not hesitate to jump on board. And the fact that it was specifically designed with affordability in mind is just a plus!

Great ideas, hey @livingspeedbump what if we make something amusement park related with following this style?
We absolutely could. I have a heap of 50s fonts and signage I will send you asap!
