Trailblazer Keyboards Avalon

FJLaboratories worked closely with Trailblazer Keyboards to design the Avalon—a unique 65% design that features a custom leaf spring design, a left-handed macro column, and an integrated light bar for the badge. FJLaboratories also performed all renderings and developed the project introduction video.
