Dear Font Experts:

Project: Keyboard
I am choosing to produce keyboards, have found a supplier ready to arrange the keyboards according to my specifications.

The things is what keyboard font style to choose from the 16 options attached? I would be very thankful if you could VOTE to choose your favorite from the 16 options seen here from external hosted images.

Keyboards Pictures:
Some options have both letter cases on keycaps, this might sound unusual thus are seen here from external hosted images and also as file attachments showing the possibility.

Other Details:
These 16 styles are BBT and Rail Model fonts.
There is Regular, Bold, Italic with also Upper and Lower case together on keycaps.
The keyboards alter the suicidal k/K shaped letter on the keyboard, see http://Kalphabet.googlepages.com.
There 16 images are also attached as files and there is also pdf file with the 16 options.
I have attached 2 fonts from where the 16 options originate.

I am surprised to note that while the font styles you have chosen to present are all very nice ones, none of them particularly closely resemble the typefaces most commonly found on computer keyboards.

I would say that 2. or 4. are the most suitable to that application of the choices provided, however.

It would be better if you made good mockups of the letters on the actual keyboard you're going to use (or at least partial keyboards).

Maybe you want to narrow the choices down first, but at some point you need a good mockup to evaluate. Wouldn't be too hard to do in Photoshop.

Is there really a market for this?

@aluminum:
No.

However, I could be too hasty. First, the OP should talk about this directly to his fellow members in his little breakaway group of former Hare Krishna members, and see what they think of it.

Maybe some of them would be interested. If not, broader appeal to other Hindus would be unlikely; and, of course, as I keep noting, anyone not a Hindu (since most other religions aren't syncretistic, and so anything allegedly supernatural from outside their own tradition is either a fake or done by demons) would obviously have no interest whatsoever.

Our cultural perspective is, of course, so shaped by an Abrahamic faith being the paradigm of religion for us, that to us it's axiomatic that faith-based reasons have zero validity to anyone outside their originating faith.

Thanक you very much for your votes and comments.

I have gone with option Number 4 though not this for the keyboards naming style.

Dear Font Experts:

Number 4 option caused aligning problem for the company, thus I chose Number 2.
