What's a good program to do designs and stuff? And do a majority of you produce your own prints,with your own press or do you use a third party company?

Illustrator, always an upper hand if you can draw.

use a company...

photoshop and illustrator work good.

that's about all the info you'll get here. don't expect people to give out resources quick. we all put in work for this.


if you can draw, use illustrator.... if you cant and just want text and photoshopped pictures, well.... PS works good.

good luck.

@tapresto Just download inkscape. It's simple to use and it has qualities of Adobe programs. When you learn there, switching to AI/PS will be easy.

Do some research.
It pays for itself in the end, if you know how to use it it will pay for itself
Or you can pay someone else. Either way you'll be coming out of pocket if you don't use the proper resources...

Heres our 5 panel snap, cotton twill with embroidered logo made in the USA. I love how the fit came out, pretty identical to a HUF snap

I'm working on a brand called 'PREDOM' here's one of the designs. going to use a different font in the final.

Hey guys, I'm launching a new line around April. Tell me what you think about the brand name and logo (be as harsh as you want).

EDIT: Just got an update from my designer literally a minute ago, minor detail changes but looks a big improvement in my opinion.

@lowlives care to give me a bit more feedback then that?
Nov 27, 2012 @ 03:18
The second one is good. I don't get the "crap" comment. The first one wasn't even that. I like the design. I'm not sure about the font but I don't have a suggestion on what to use so take that with a grain of salt. blushing

I just like Pirulen for everything lol

Thanks, I really appreciate that after the crap comment ( lol? ). I decided on Litos as a placeholder, this is by no means the final version of the product. Nonetheless I definitely like the Font you put in there it gives the logo a futuristic corporation sort of vibe.

Btw where can I go to see a good selection of fonts? So far I have just been using dafont.com while I get the actual designs done.

P.s. anymore criticism is welcome from anyone who wants to put their two cents in.

@tlaser you gotta get rid of that big indian logo on your website. its 2000-fucking-12
Nov 27, 2012 @ 04:13
@liftedcity I didn't think it was crap so I said that. Use Font Squirrel. Free commercial fonts.

What up! I have been selling my tees locally for a little bit out the trunk of my car, tradeshows, and online. I never really was educated on what streetwear was. It was just fresh gear where I come from. So I created my line because I wanted something different to wear and was getting tired of wearing the same gear as everyone in my neighborhood. As I got started I really got into the community which eventually landed me hear to Hypebeast. This forum is great. I respect everyone's hustle in this thread and see now what I've been missing out on.

Anyways before I start sounding too corny. I recently got onto kazbah.com and learned their were over 500 brands on there. Theirs tons of great gear and plenty I would pass on at the same time. I just wanted to get some brutally honest opinions from folks around the world on my tees. Let me know how you all feel and I would appreciate the support by liking sharing or whatever all my contacts at the bottom. Thanks

wisdom and wealth shirt is killer

@exquisiteco the white bear shirt looks a bit busy with those bright Colors against a white background, the black bear shirt works better. Wisdom & wealth is great, simple alliteration like that works well if someone passing you by on the street sees it.

Check out my logo on the previous page, I'm looking for criticism as well.

thoughts..?


no offense but i hate the whole aesthetic of it. it seems like it has the potential to go somewhere but the quality is not there. For your company''s sake i hope u guys come out with some quality stuff n a HD camera...just my opinion
Nov 27, 2012 @ 05:04
new logo, first design that will be used on shirts.


I think it would be better without the roman numerals..theyre a bit played out bruh
Nov 27, 2012 @ 05:13
Video Lookbook,opinions?

all you really demonstrated about the apollo lifestyle is that:
- you guys hang out with girls
- yall real chill with the police
- and one of you know how to ride a skateboard


I have to agree with you on this. Its just like anyother brand with nothng behind it.
Nov 27, 2012 @ 05:13
@liftedcity I like the design. The only negative is I've seen a lot of new clothing lines play off the Illuminati all seeing eye. This looks a little like that. Other then that the logo is straight. I'd rock a tee. Good luck

Start on google and yelp for a print shop. Shop around and compare prices, set up fees, color change fees...if you find a good print shop (been around for awhile, corporate accounts) they can point in the direction of varsity jackets, hats and embroidery or hand you a catalogue. But you're going to want to check prices on that too so, back to google.

From what I understand these are just concepts, as in photoshop mockups or something of the like. If you could vectorize the images or actually get them printed and take a picture I bet some of the stuff would look pretty good. That being said, some of the shirts have more potential than others, I'd definitley rock the starry nights cap though.
