“You are an alchemist; make gold of that.” - William Shakespeare
Much like a modern alchemist, the Alchemy colourway was first brought to us in DSA profile from our fellow UK brethren Chris Swires (famed for his two-tone table setup and a penchant for 40% boards), when he took a simple idea and created gold with it. When Chris reached out to us and gave us his blessing, we took advantage of this serendipitous opportunity to run our namesake keyset in GMK profile.
The colourway itself is comprised of cool grey and beige tones representing base metals, a gold accent representing every alchemist’s primary goal, and warm brown legends representing the base element of earth to provide a stark contrast.
Quoting the designer himself: “The idea of the base combination is to provide a foreground backdrop to any board it's placed upon, the subtlety of the base allows the board to be the star of the show rather than the set itself. It's an accent piece, visual alchemy. The idea evolved from there.”
As we now propose to run this set in GMK profile, and cannot use SP’s colour codes exactly, we will be matching the actual SP chips with the closest alternative RAL colours. All renders and kits are subject to change and may not be final.
Along side this we have also commissioned some fantastic deskmat designs from OneCreativeMind and hope to work with an Artisan maker for a Artisan keycap to accompany the set also though this is yet to be confirmed if possible. More information on both of these ventures will be updated here and you can find a gallery of images below.
