Story


I use keyboard quite a lot. I think I spend around 10 hours each day creating something and texting with friends. But the keyboard I use is not good enough. I always have wrist pain after whole day of work being a Designer. Therefore, I look around different keyboards and find out most of them are not stylist, not functional and too heavy. I want to design a beautiful, portable, productive and comfortable keyboard.

So this began the tale of Designer Keyboard.
