Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

Mar 14, 2013 @ 04:09
Holy Fuck can i ever win ?
You're just not meant for it b, I've refrained from commenting cuz I didn't want to be an ass but everything you've come up is all too rushed.

You don't just come up with a brand name after a day of thinking... It's a manifestation of the idea your brand is based around. It usually takes time and good ones just pop in your head.

You are forcing everything, that's why the designs are shit. It seems like you are just trying to make a brand in order to make money. That's not why you should start a clothing line, especially now.

I've seen other people say a few of the same things before but I don't think it really landed.

And for all you other new brands, this thread isn't meant to hold your hand and help you with 50% of making the brand and to help you with 50% of your design work. And you shouldn't really want people in this thread to help with that anyways since the majority here are new brands as well... it's just the blind leading the blind..

Come up with your own brand basis, designs, make your shit and then give a good presentation of what you have. You'll get better feedback that way anyway instead of posting shit designs over and over.
yeah i know what you mean but im not done thinking of shit yet its only been a day , that was just a suggestion

Ad twin column said, take the time. If you're meant to have a brand I can guarantee you it will come. Like I posted before, I had 6 previous names and logos and I could had bet my middle nut that they were all gonna work, now looking back I know I made the right choice by waiting.

I'm in the final stages designing/approving the first order and its a really good/rewarding experience but I bet if I had rushed I would be all losses at myself for it. Stay calm and just let the ideas come to you.

I'll make sure to post a "new brand thread" once I get ny shit together. Hope I get some support from you guys.

I am wondering what your guys's thoughts are with promoting your brand. It's hard for me because it's just me and I live in the middle of no where. What would you suggest?

@minsct The product is dope and well designed but the photography is super amateur and the fact that you spelled lookbook wrong on your collection ad is embarrassing

Atomic First T shirt obviously this looks just like obey shirt but for the first couple of shirt this is what we are doing because it is clean simple and it looks fresh.

any thoughts?
You and I and both know that shit isn't fresh.

People have been saying it for over a year now, but it apparently needs to be repeated: retire the box logo. Aeterna at least put some effort into their box logo shirt, you didn't do shit.

I've only seen one shirt from Atomic, and I already hate it. This is your brand's first impression on me. You don't want to make a bad first impression. Why would you drop bad stuff first?

^^ I had to laugh a youngkings' comment.

Atomic -- if you know you are just copying someone else style, why would you think people would want to buy it? All everyone is gonna say is, "look another copy of obey, which btw copied off of supreme"...

Besides the fact that OBEY is a fucking piece of shit dirtbag, who has plagiarized from a bunch of people without giving them at least their mention.

Yeah i under everyone  but first thing i've done and i done a box logo because its easy to cut out when using a heat transfer method made at home, getting some of this designs printed by a company so it wont be heat transferred



still not good but yh - and by the way im not planing on selling unless someone wants to buy one just posted the design here to get criticized on it and hopefully able to get some good designs.

Yo @atomic- , take it from me, from posting some of my "ideas" on here i've learned that quality work comes with time, and doing what everyone has done isn't gonna get you good feedback (trust me),  you've posted two different products in like 10 minutes, same shit i was doing. If you're gonna post it at least keep away from saying shit like "still not good" thats just telling everyone on here that you dont really have confidence in what your posting and you may know it sucks, you gotta realize that no one on here is waiting for you to put up your next product, so you have all the time in the world to sit down and come up with your own shit , your own designs, and your own styles, if anything create your own trend instead , im telling you this to prevent you from going through the same shit i went through , i still have a lot to learn and it will take me a while to come up with some real good shit that i can credit to myself , so i think you should do the same

What do you guys do when you have a design ready to print, and then later you see a bigger known brand post a preview of the same concept?
