Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

http://www.womynla.com/ Glad to see more female friendly brands getting into the game, not really feeling the name, though.
This brand has potential to make major waves in the game. Not too many female centred brands out here. Props to your brand, site looks legit too. 
Like what you have pictured here. The hat is really cool with that feminine brim print. kinda partial to hats though..

http://www.countachclothing.bigcartel.com/ Deadass thought I was looking at Kite Life.
I've never heard of Kite Life, Deadass, Can someone explain to me how my shit looks like kite life?
Watch out for trademark infringement with that lambo logo. The simpsons looking guy is a cool graphic

by the way How do you guys feel about this logo i was thinking of using as my primary? 
I had two visions with my Countach line, i might just take this path

You can't just take a clip art from thw web and throw your name on it and call it your logo.

Countach -- the name itself is kinda corny and don't ever get big enough for Lamborghini to come after you... U do know that bull is a registered trademark right smh...

You right you right

take notes guys. Countach is giving Kite Life Co a run for its money. look at this straight piffery. your girl is straight gonna suck your dick when she sees you with this new Countach. look at the subtle branding on the bottom of the shoe. this feverish man is straight breaking his own ankle trying to ball on you niggas. your girl is into the little details. you might get a straight heart attack too lookin at the 900 dollar price tag of this shirt god damn!

Countach -- trademarks are rather simple to understand... If a company, corporation, business, legal entity etc. is using it, I guarantee you they own the rights to that image/logo/song/blah blah.

Better learn this was than the hard way I guess.

Hey what's good yall I've been playing around the concept of a Kingdom Hearts Micket design lately and here's my design process:

Version 1..Eventually I had to redraw the it and do the feet over again.

Version 2...fixed the feet, people liked the design and overall...I still wasn't happy with it. So I redrew this one too.

Version 3, it's sort of correct in terms of the older Mickey Mouse designs, but it still lacked the motion I really wanted for the design.


Version 4...almost to where I want it to be, I liked this one, but the Keyblade design was off and the feet aren't right.



V5..not quite there yet, and this one just got scrapped.


LAST AND NOT LEAST "Keyblade Runner" a parody of Blade Runner...I achieved the design I was going for...this one is going to be printed soon and in limited quantity. I'll have pics of the shirt as soon as it comes in.

Countach -- the Kite Life reference is to another member with some shit designs.
Niksone -- I like the camp hat a lot. Where to cop? The strapback looks meh but I always lean towards camps.
Nice Work!

ain't going to  lie. As a fan of KH this is pretty slick work.
You'll have a select group be interested in this.
I would use as a sticker not sure about me wearing it as a shirt or even how you would tie it in with your brand.
You had the sketch of the bomber too right?
Once again though I see you are saving money by usint auto trace but if you want this to come out clean send the vector file off to a graphic designer so he can clean up the lines and make them smoother. On the keyblade it's really noticable. I'm new with Illustrator myself so it's a common problem I have as well.

Yeah the Bombers tee was mine and I'm still working on it, I used the live trace and the whole image of Mickey and the keyblade came out well, but the chain holding the Mickey logo didn't come out so well. I'll post pics of it later.

Is kinda difficult to tell you how to go about starting a business, at the end you learn from your mistakes. I have come up with 6 different names/logos/designs(sets) and just this afternoon I went ahead and canceled the order I put in for what I thought was my final "brand". I just wasn't feeling it. My printer hated it but I still paid the dude for his work even though he didn't print one shirt lol. 

All I can tell you is to come up with ideasm work on 'em and then let them sit for a few weeks. Then come back and take another -- honest -- look at them and then decide if they work. Just like this whole "countach" shit, now you know that wasn't a good idea.

Google how to start a clothing brand and see what you find.

I'll be honest, you wont find a lot of positive/constructive criticism here. Most here are on the same boat as you or already hustlin their stuff and trying to build, therefore they are not gonna be as cool with helping you out...

Whatever happened to kite life anyways? yea bro, your brand just feels like a bunch of random stock images and shitty fonts. It feels like you came out with your whole collection in a few hours using microsoft paint. Go to karmaloop browse  their tshirts, get some ideas or try to improve some, no design is original nowadays.

Sounds homo but I get what you saying lol. Reason why I am "real" as you said it, is cause I'm a bit older and don't really need to start a "brand" to live a comfortable life. I only do it as a way to channel my ideas. I have done painting, wrote a book and a couple of short movies, done photography and currently am trying to start this more as a hobby than anything else. Seriously, it's the most difficult shit I've done in quite some time lol.
