you all have very bright futures in making mediocre t-shirts for each other. i hope you all get to agenda next year where you can all showcase your lame shit with the lookbook shot by berman with alysha nett wearing your dumb fucking patch beanie and boring logo tee with no pants on so you can all suck each others dicks in one place, you passive agressive elitists.
Why you mad? 
Maybe you should take your own advice. I looked at your website.
"Mediocre t-shirts" Check.
"Patch beanie" check.
"Boring logo tee"........ Check

I suggest you hate less and work

I've been designing random designs and wanted to get some feedback.  I have sold over 40 orders but things have gotten dry.  BLCK CRWN was my creation but i dont want it to be labeled as a spin-off of BLVCK SCVLE. The image and the meaning is different, but society just judges right away.  What do you guys think about the design? I have over 30 designs not even shown...And we have 1.7k likes on fb within half a year. Should i revive it back to life and f*ck the haters?

I'd try to show the shirts in a different way, and spread them out so that they aren't all awkwardly clumped in the middle. The video itself has good flow until the shirts are being put on. Maybe mess around with that, but the camera angles for the most part are on point. 

That would difficult, since the video is long enough as it is and if we change the order around it will take away from the theme of our line, which is "fantasy or nightmare?". So we probably won't change this video, but the next one we will definitely keep the advice in mind! Thanks!

(if you have more advice, I just made a discussion thread...)

Hangtags made... fuck yeaah!

Here's the backside of 'em. Don't want to show the front yet cause the name/logo stuff is on there and we ain't ready to promote it proper just yet. The teal blue looks kinda gray on the pic but way better in person.  And no, the name is not "superior goods" lol.

I feel as if you googled "crown vector" and sword vector and just used what ever you found. Is there any original artwork here? Any motivation behind the shirts? just seems kind of bland and shallow. If people like it though do your thing and good luck!

For the people that "thumb'd down" the hangtag, mind me asking why? I handle criticism pretty well, so please share.

Thanks for your replies. I have seen it before where one post gets countless "thumb downs" and no reasoning behind them. I appreciate your truthfulness.

On the other hand I still support the final outcome. For the font I used "Steiner", which imho its one of the cleanest modern fonts ever created, and it ties with the "modern urban explorer" line.

The motto itself is us, my brother and I, being as honest as humanly possible regarding our passion for what we have created. We are continually "exploring" our dilapidated city of Cleveland and we felt we needed to translate that into the feeling of the "brand".

Hopefully when it's all said and done, you guys will give us a second look.

you can back it up as many times as you want, doesn't change the fact is just doesn't look good. people judge a book by its cover, and you gotta make the cover look good. people won't visually connect with the brand unless the design work is pleasing, and in this case it is not.

^^ you sound like my previous arts teacher. He was in love with the "rules" of art and the whole ideal of 'em. When I asked him if he thought graffiti, which I did as a teenager and still do - although no longer on the streets, was considered artful, he said no. His response was, "Anybody can scribble some stuff on a wall". Just like that. I closed my book, told him "have a nice fucking day" walked out and dropped the class.

I later ran into him at a local arts show where he was selling some of his paintings, to me they felt "flat". Meaning without any feelings. We talked for a bit and he actually remembered me which surprised me. I apologized, not for my outburst but for actually not looking into his background before signing up for the class. If I had, I'm sure I would had found his site and his work, which was just another refurbished idea of what "arts" is to him.

I'm not defending my actions per say, I'm just saying that for every taste, their is a color.

Here are a few of my paintings, just so you get an idea of what I'm into. This work won't translate to the clothing itself, I just wanted you to see them and let me know what you thought. By the way, you do some really cool animal/creature drawings.

Those are actually outside mirror covers from a MINI Cooper JCW, that I painted for a friend. He ended up getting them clear coated and installed them on his car.
