Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

It'd be helpful if people just gave some honest opinions instead of thumbing everything down. It's kind of stupid.

That website...you have to clean that site up man, looks like there was no effort put into it. Take off the repeating wallpaper, change the header picture, and then just try to make it look professional man. If you need any help, shoot us a message or just google for some themes. Where are you hosting your site?

@apollolifestyle I like the idea but the shirts could be a bit better, they look abit amateur to be honest. However, if you fix up the "my pair is better" shirt you could get big rather quickly...look at sneaktip I remember they started off with one shirt in 07 and that was popular enough to make them big.

Tell me what you think of my logo on page 243, I'd appreciate it.

Alright, so why Apollo? He was the Greek good of poetry, philosophy, sun, and a few other things. I chose that because like him, our brand encompasses multiple things whether it was music, art, sports, or anything else. The lifestyle is about being excellent. Like the Greek Aristotle said 'we are what we repeatedly do, excellence is not an act but a habit" translation : excellence is a habit for us. The Apollo lifestyle is about being excellent at what you do, pushing boundaries and daring to be different.
The masks? Those symbolize that no matter who you are, you can be part of the lifestyle, as long as you want to push hard. Like it a blank mask for you to decide your excellence, who you want to be. Cause if people don't remember you, you didn't do anything memorable.

I realize this video kinda sucks at showing anything, which was why I've been working on an official one to explain the story.

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.


I like this alot, but what is Lifted Concepts? I feel like you could do some things with this

Hey everyone - We just launched our Kickstarter campaign to help produce some key pieces from our debut collection. If you're able to take a minute to check it out, pledge and get some cool rewards, or even spread the word, it would all be a huge help and greatly appreciated as we look to move forward.

@apollolifestyle appreciate the feedback dude, but I just didnt want it to look basic like everyones else big cartel site. But thats the first time Ive heard someone say it looks unprofessional and to get ride of the icon. But I value each persons opinion and thank you for the feedback as well.
Nov 28, 2012 @ 18:14
@liftedcity Thanks for the feedback homie, yea I spruced the sgirt up a bit, Instead of saying Pair I actually added tow Ace of spade cards or Two Ace of Diamonds cards instead of saying pair. It brings the shirt out more, and it adds more graphics to the shirt. but thanks again for the feedback homie, its greatly appreciated

I know it kinda seems like a taboo subject to share your contacts but I wanted to know some good companys for shirt production. Everyone on here seems to prefer that over hand done screen printing. Im looking to invest in a screen printer just because it seems really rewarding to hand screen print your own stuff but down the road I know im going to want to have a professional company to help me make cleaner shirts. If anyone could point me in the right direction that would be amazing. thanks


Confused by your question. I'm willing to help but I don't understand what you're asking.

Two things. First, your squiggly line tee looks a lot like the logo for Imperial Motion. You might want to change that (if these are just concept designs). Two, we (kind of) started on Kickstarter too. It's a great tool and a good way to get the word out. The one problem I have with your project/ company is that it doesn't seem like you guys are that serious/ committed if you're counting on Kickstarter to pay business licensing fees. I'm sure you've guys have spent plenty of time and money on this but that's just the impression I got.

Good luck.

I honestly feel like skimping out on and going for the cheapest product is a waste of time and money. You might as well do it right the first time. If you want to do this do it right fellas. Just my random 2 cents.

No problem. You can get an official looking bigcartel page, just upgrade and get a theme man. Maybe it's just me, but you're welcome

What kind of Camera did you guys get? We bought a T3i last month and so far its been an amazing investment. Were doing music videos, graffiti/artist projects, and were shooting both winter lookbook videos with our new camera.

This is the music video we just dropped for a new kid in town.

I got a xsi, pretty old but from what I seen on Flickr it does magic. Only thing is it doesn't do videos but I have best friends with video cameras so I'll manage. Long time no speak though, hmu on Kik sometime.

@vega_box Amen, that's the recipe.

Dope camera man. That will get you some solid lookbook pictures. What are you using to edit? Check out lightroom its by far the best and most efficient way to do it.

Hard Knoxx

I began this project back in 2008 when I was a freshman. It all began with some sketches that were going to be on some hats. Over time, I wanted to expand than just making hats and decided that I would start a small brand. 4 years later, I began production of the Hard Knoxx clothing company and slowly, my small dream is becoming a reality. During the last 4 years, I have expanded my knowledge on street wear cultures and used that into constructing this brand. I have the support from my city and im looking to expand the brand to a national scale and eventually, work my way to being one of the most respected companies in the industry.

Make sure to check out the website premier on Saturday, December 1st, 2012 @ 7pm
The Spring/Summer Collection will drop February 2013.
Lookbook coming soon.
