From the designers — Our intent was to design a seamless, substantial, and symmetrical 75% with a rotary encoder. The weight pays homage to our roots with the San Francisco skyline. After 1.5 years, we're happy to bring this to group buy.


A gorgeous symmetrical layout and sturdy design are certain to elevate your typing experience to the next level. With an almost entirely metal construction and hotswap PCB this keyboard will bring long-lasting quality and enhanced feel to your setup. A custom programmable rotary encoder with metal knob adds another layer of functionality through analog input. Combined with an efficient space saving 75% layout, the Paragon truly lives up to its name as being the paragon of custom mechanical keyboards.


    The chosen color is for both the top and bottom of the case.

      The PCB firmware for the Paragons is set to work out of the box, but to change the layout or reprogram the keyboard you will need to flash the PCB again.
    • If your left Alt key is not working, it is because the default layout needs to be changed by flashing the PCB.
    • Please go to this link for fresh flashing files (there is one set for VIA and one set for Vial, as well as instructions). If you need more help, please join the Paragon designers' Discord for assistance.
    • Be aware that there are separate files for the hotswap and solder PCBs, and they are not interchangeable. You must use the corresponding file to your type of PCB, or your configurator will display incorrectly.
    • If your keyboard is having issues or not working, please try flashing your PCB before contacting support. If you continue to face issues, feel free to reach out to us or join the Artemis Design Studios Discord for help.
