what's your guy's stance on flipping other's logos?

some i flipped...

.........

For me,only if its super relevant to your brand or the message your brand stands for,otherwise id stay clear,you could be massively devaluing your brand.

This is for all the people that haven't started a brand yet but are thinking about it (it could also apply to people that just started)
Pretty much its a article that talks about all the misconceptions of starting a brand. Definitely a good read.
http://iamthetrend.com/2012/06/13/misconceptions-of-starting-a-clothing-brand/


Great article. Most of this information is very true. I see so many kids these days thinking that they can just put a few t's out and it will make them cool or famous. Little do they know that this overly saturated industry takes extreme dedication, hard work, talent, sweat and passion to even turn a profit. My guess is that 98% of the brands on this forum will never see any huge business success - and my brand could very well be part of that statistic. As long as you do what you love and love what you do, you can't really ask for more. Good luck to all the starting brands out there - your going to need it.


good words minsct. starting a clothing brand, takes much more than just producing a few tees, putting them at a low price and selling them. requires determination, patience, research, and $$$. theres a difference between selling shirts, and building a brand. some people get lost in the misconcept that owning a .storenvy account with no branding and 3 incoherent shirt designs printed on a gilden shirt is a clothing brand. a 'brand' is something you can recognize. Proper branding, coherent designing, brand message & meaning, and good marketing is what can boost a brand to success (of coarse over time)

Very well put @minsct and @jayoceansss

I like the Bra logo, its mischievous. though its difficult to comment on anything because theres nothing that really suggests what your brand is about/ stands for? It could mean nothing or I could be missing out on something profound.

theres so many brands out there and everything is so "here today,gone tomorrow" that I think you need to give us something about what your brand is saying maybe, not necessarily through text but how you present the product?

Get a t shirt template. I agree with andy but I think if you were to stick with it and leave it as is, I think it would look best on a pocket tee or just on the right breast of the shirt.

Maybe he's going for the Givenchy styling lol. But yeah like they said you need to put these on a t-shirt template first.

Lowballers can stay out.

I'm new to this whole thing so I'm just feeling around and experimenting and trying to create a portfolio for school. I will be making some tangible items but I'm mostly doing this just for fun smile

I have many more designs, but they are not ready to show yet.





Please, give me some feedback on this.

And I almost forgot, but does someone know a good way to start an exlcusive, expensive clothing label like BAPE or Neighborhood? Cause I think it's pretty hard to start a clothing brand with high prices for your products.

I think the three-eyed tiger is awesome and a great mascot.

You wanna be the next Bape? Build value in your consumers' mind, unless you start out with the most crack design and get lucky -- i.e. your shit goes viral, you're gonna have to position your brand to be seen as worth the money for some value you deliver.

To me, it feels like clothing is the same as anything else that humans desire/need. Scarcity and added value are the two things that seem to work.

1 - For example,here in the UK everyone was complaining about petrol prices, the government announces that there is a petrol shortage..what happens? People camp outside petrol stations in ques to get some. (there was no shortage).

2 - Abercrombie and Fitch , pretty much blatantly say (don't bother wearing our clothes unless you are a certain type of person) They even have a fucking bouncer and velvet rope at the London store..what happens? Everyone goes blonde and tries to look like an extra from the OC so they don't get turned away from the 300m line outside Abercrombie and fitch.

even in life, like, everyone wants the girl they cant get,everyone wants to "discover" a new artist that no one knew about.

3 - You HAVE to have a good product, attention to detail otherwise everything else will mean zero.

google "added value" or "Perceived quality"....also read about Johnny cupcake (not feeling the clothes or the style but he understood this formula and is running all the way to the bank with it)

Sample print using distress effect, each tee would be slightly different (our concept of one of a kind). Please let us know what you think
