Preview of some designs I have been working on recently. Feedback is much appreciated.

I've ordered blanks, now I'm trying to figure out what prints would work best.

Or click http://i1324.photobucket.com/albums/u605/Roscoe_Grand/preview_zps01bca7d5.jpg  for a bigger preview.


LOGO FIRST

LOGO FIRST

LOGO FIRST

There is no real play book on how to start a successful brand but Logo first.
If you drop all those shirts at once without having a solid recongition for your brand and logo people won't know where those other designs came from.
You don't have anything in the design that points them were to go. My thought is save those and brand first. You don't want dead inventory when just starting off. Just my opinion

Good shit man. Small things like that makes a difference for a brand. It makes the package more exciting to open.

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.

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
