WS x Jaekeyed (赤灰色) Aka Haiiro Keycaps

Aka Haiiro is a new keycap set utilizing all side dyesub. The process used for these caps results in minimal to no fading, and crisp legends. We have included prototype photos in this listing to show just how impressive the results are. Matching deskmats are also available during this group buy.

From designer Jaekeyed:

Dear MKB community,

When I was young, I was able to visit a beautiful Asian country, Japan. I won’t forget the trucker hat I got from our vacation which says “MAKE LOVE, NOT WAR.” Coincidentally, the hat’s main color is hot red, with LOVE in white and WAR in black. I loved that hat, but I lost it after a few years and I couldn’t find that very same design again. But that’s okay, life moves forward. Still, that statement will resonate with me until the day I die. In this world of uncertainty, it is better to promote love and kindness.

Fast forward to now, I am dedicating this new gomoku-inspired keycapset design called (赤灰色) Aka Haiiro, literally translated to "Red Grey", for a community that shares the same love for mechanical keyboards from a country other than my own.

I incorporated that same short but profound statement about love and war using tategaki, the traditional Japanese way of writing vertically. I think I might as well help that very same hat designer to propagate what he wanted to tell the world - it is better to make love, not war.
