Also, what's the concept behind the name? What are you (any of you starting brands) bringing to the table besides "fly" gear.
I'm a sucker for meaning. There has to be a meaning behind what you do. If there isn't than you're just making cool shirts with no substance. I'd like to invite all of you to explain what your brands stand for.
Jake, I'm directing my attention back to you now. Since you seem to have the right idea with your brand why not act as a helping hand? You can be blunt but delicate. I don't think it's right to tell someone who's looking for feedback to scratch their entire idea.
You went off on my topic about how unoriginal my brand was due to our use of pigeons. You mentioned a company I had never heard of and a man I hold in very high regard as reasons why my brand was bad. I invite you to find out about my company. Do your research. The Gully Steez idea was birthed 4-5 years ago..we're new on here, not new to this hustle. We've been in development ever since. We just released our first lineup of multiple tees after years of random one tee limited drops that were sold locally. All these years the pigeon has been a major part of our mantra and our image because of what the bird represents to us, not because Stpl used the bird on dunks.
If you're real with yourself, you're gully.
If you're comfortable with yourself, you got Steez.
Do you got Steez?
www.GullySteez.com is More Than Streetwear
Plz leave feedback on your opinion of our website..
Our blog sucks..
We're working on actual model pics..
When I get home I will be adding pics of some of the designs that we came out with Dec. 1st for anybody who didn't visit the website.
Just to start off, i never said your brand was bad nor to scratch the idea. I just said that the pigeon logo has been used multiple times and I thought it was very unoriginal of you. However, I assumed the the brand was new since you posted in the "new lines" section, but it is not so there was no way you could've copied it. gotcha.
any ways, the supply co. is just the trade name. instead of adding 'clothing co.' it will be supply co., my products are not only going to be apparel.
it took a shitload of time to finally settle on the name 'distant light', after many many many other potential names. the name came to me from the phrase"there is always a light at the end of the tunnel". whatever you are trying to achieve or trying to progress, this saying applys. it has always been a saying thats been in the back of my mind, and "distant light" describes it.
the reason i am starting a brand is because, i want to. i have done my research for about a year now, gathered up a shit load information, read alot of books, all that jazz (still always learning though) and i wanted to be bring something new and different to the table. i am tired of brands just coming out with a dumb design and slapping it on a shirt and calling it "streetwear". not only will the designs dominate, but the aesthetics of the brand will shine aswell.
i'm trying to keep everything as exclusive as possible, so i am actually unable to post my full logo design on here, sorry. if you are really interested though, you can email me.
on the other hand, i never said to quit what your doing. i see potential in the brand, but im not a huge fan of your designs.
i don't really like those designs, but if your selling them i am not one to speak. get real product shots!
I wasn't referring to what you said to me with telling people to scratch their brands...you basically just hit me with that one liner about the pigeon. But I was looking through this thread and there were a couple of comments that I thought could really have been more helpful.
I'm all about the criticism though and thank you for it. I respect that you're not feeling our designs. Everybody has their own taste.
Your concept for the brand is dope..the whole reason behind the name sounds deep so it's definitely something that will build your perception. I think naming your brand is probably the hardest thing to do and realizing why you really want to do this is as well. I respect that you have that defined. I am interested in viewing the logo so I'll be emailing you..we're all part of the new wave of street wear so it's important that we help each other out.
The name, branding, and the finding the message behind the brand is definitely the hardest part. It is all so critical to your brand. takes a lot of time and patience.
