Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

Nov 19, 2012 @ 23:19
@vega_box Thank you for keeping everything respectful. I am personally not religious so I don't really have much religious knowledge but I think you will find this interesting because I actually try to stay away from the "devil-worshiper" and "illuminati" image. The upside down crosses are actually the St. Petrine Cross.

You might already know what that is because you are Christian, but for those that don't know, the St. Petrine Cross or The Cross of St. Peter is the inverted latin cross. The latin cross is the same cross used by Christianity, correct? So, with this, many Christians have come to consider The Cross of St. Peter to be a symbol of ant-religion or associated with Satanism. However, this is not meant to be the case. In Catholicism, the St. Petrine cross is not seen as Satanic. Pope John Paul II sat on a chair with the Petrine Cross inscribed on the back when he visited Israel.

I know this doesn't change much since it's still not "with God" but I just wanted to point out how the design is more neutral than anything else

And I also provide normal latin crosses in White blushing just the black version is inverted

Hey everyone so I'm new to the scene, looking to get some advice on first drop..
I am getting printed to start with, 5 t's 5 crew's and 5 longsleeve t's, I have also getting manufactored blank camo 5 panel caps, and pompom beanies. I have organised tags, and embroidery. I have also organised a film and photography specialist to create a video lookbook and product photography.

It's the best way to do it. Nail the branding and aim high from the start. good luck

Thanks for the response, I noticed I got a lot of dislikes on current logo but I am getting a new one done up. The one I have now was created simply for the purpose to have a logo for the time being.
When it comes to logos, do people tend to use typographical?

Nov 20, 2012 @ 00:26
I think theres a mix of logos out there, but personally i think its stronger to have a name of sorts incorporated so that people can put a name to the brand. When people buy, they're basically buying into your brand image and identity, so you should make it as strong as you can from the off.
Nov 20, 2012 @ 00:46
So I've been lurking on this thread for like 2 months trying to learn stuff about launching my brand. So far I have a name and a logo. Just looking for some thoughts/critiques/opinions on the photo below. I'm not sure if I'm going to use it for the logo or if it's just a design.

@timk125
The type looks good but I'm not sure it would work the best as a logo. With the thumbnail you posted, it's a bit hard to read the script at the bottom and you need your logo to scale well. It looks great when it's bigger though, so I feel it would look good as a design rather than a logo.

@twincolumn
Your product is looking really good man, I love that hoodie with the pocket print.
Nov 20, 2012 @ 03:28
@benchwarmer Totally see your point. I'm not happy with how it scales and you make a good point. Logo 101 really I don't know what I was thinking.

Don't worry too much about it man, you should expect to do a lot of revisions before getting it just right. Just keep working at it and keep asking people's opinions.

Keep the spacing in check, everything is feeling a bit too cramped up IMO.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I've never seen that before, I've messed with it with and without a circle. I like it with some type of border though.

I really like this tee. It is hard enough to come up with a solid illustration like that tiger, but to incorporate it into a design that flows and fits well on a t-shirt is even harder. I also like how you used the scratches across the HH on the front graphic to tie it in to the piece as a whole. Probably one of the most well executed pieces I've seen on this forum so far. Keep it up!

a lot of things in this industry aren't original. everyone rips, re-appropriates, or bases an idea of something. "nothing is original, there's nothing new under the sun, it's not what you do... but how it's done". that's one of my favorite lines from Nas. It's so true, everything repeats itself.

Now if someone just straight up jacks the whole design without changing it, that's stupid. But it is what it is. You can be original by taking someones design or logo and making it better or yours.

I do like original work as well, but isn't the point of this industry to piss evryone off and cross the lines?

look at johnny cupcakes, the hundreds, supreme (the king of rips), and other brands. they all use other art as a template of their designs. it's called "steal like an artist".


either way, i see all your views. we all have our own method to creating. i'm not saying steal all your work, but know when to steal and know when to create from scratch. I've had a design stolen from a growing comapny. I just took the L, it is what it is.

anyway, dope t shirt. even if the tiger is taken from a sports team or drawn from scratch.
