I'll be honest, the designs are childish and so is the name/brand. Just think of the top brands out there and compare yours to theirs. What do you see?

I know you are trying and I give you that, but you should rethink your approach. Also what program are you using for your designs?

i a combination of photoshop and illustrator. The name is specifically for the target audience (smokers). As far as the designs go i see simplicity to be most common.

i use a combination of photoshop and illustrator. The name is specifically for the target audience (smokers). I'd perfer just "kite life" but was approached by someone that that is the name of a registered business, so i figured i had to alter it and slapped co on there but was contemplating "Kite Life-Style"...but ehhh....idk As far as the designs go i see simplicity to be most common.

If somebody already has that name I would look into finding a completely different one. You don't want to be an afterthought... As far as designs go, I guess it's u to you and what you think your audience will like. I'm not a smoker, so I would prob never buy one of those, but if it had a clean design I would probably consider it.

Idk though kites and smoking are completely far off in markets but competing for SEO will definitely be a pain. I like high fashion along with street & urban, I want the brand to be boutique quality and want it to be more then just ink on a shirt. That is one thing I realized after searching through here and looking through the catalogs and look-books of the  major brands. So I think simplifying the designs (as suggested) and adding the extra missing quality (that most go hards look for) through the use of different textures/patterns/fabrics as well as keeping the pieces limited to low/moderate quantities. My goal was to get constructive feedback on the colors/designs, input on what to remove/replace/add  etc. like I do from the more technical forums but that seems to come in scarcity around here.

I appreciate the food for thought on the name, also4 what do you think the design lacks to attract a non-smoker?

Anyone else think that posting pre production photos asking for advice downgrades a brands credit and image? Personally, I enjoy keeping almost every detail secret until the release.

To be honest, I would not buy from a single brand on here that has posted pre design templates. To me, it shows that they are not confident in their design aesthetic. Don't get me wrong, that is ok - but why not use the resources in your inner circle to assist you? A huge element of streetwear is the surprise aspect. Master it.

I post pre-preduction mockups to hopefully get hard, honest feedback. When I show stuff to my friends and family, I feel as if I get pity compliments on it. The public has no reason to do this to me, so I tend to post here first.

How much could one expect to potentially earn from having their artwork licensed on tshirts ? This particular company supplies Urban Outfitters, Topman etc.

I was approached, but I'm totally clueless as to how to go about it. I havent signed the contract I was given yet but have been offered 10% for boutiques and 5% for none boutique gross sales.

How do I go about protecting myself ?

(I know this isnt strictly starting up a label, but its near ?)

Thanks !

I don't really think we can help you here, although sites like Mintees and Deviantart might be able to.
