It's great seeing comments like these after the response I got from my first posts.

Like @aldenteco said, FUCT has been doin this style for years, and one of the few original American Streetwear brands that is still respected in Japan - where this dark aesthetic is very popular and more widely accepted. (as said by Complex Magazine).

And just as a side note, none of my stuff represents the devil (not that anyone has said that it does).

The name is based on me, a Gemini- the sign being Two Columns or Twins. Gemini's ruling planet is Mercury- God of Travel, Patron of Commerce, and King of Thieves. I take a lot of inspiration from Astrology and the Mercury (the god) and from my general interests like Egypt and other myth. Other designs just pop in my head.

I based the name, Twin Column, after the designer (me) because I have seen too many brands trapped by their name. Like Diamond Supply. ALL their designs have Diamonds in them- it pretty much has to. But brands like Alexander Wang (named based on designer) can release whatever they want because the designs are based on the man behind the brand, not the brand's name. This allows me to have a whole future open to whatever I have interest in. After all, I'm only 19 and I design for myself and for what I want to wear.

Just a little something for other new brands on here to think about.


Respect that you are doing a brand and all but saying that none of your stuff doesn't repersent the devil is a bit off. Upside down crosses surely don't repersent God or Christ in the slightest and if you ain't with God your against him. I may get some thumb downs for this comment but I'm a Christian myself so I felt I need to speak on that both of us being designers and all.
I'm not for the dark brands either but do you and make your money.
But carry on. smile

@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 smile 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.
What are your thoughts on this? A bit too much for first line of drop? or is it good to be this organised? much respect to any response

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?

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.

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.

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.

@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!
