The logo


creative minds for a not-so-creative logo. agreed, the mmxi shit is boring and I think people just put it there cause they don't know what else to put, lacking originality.

but i mean theres really nothing fundamentally wrong with it, just my personal opinion.
yes the mmx stuff is very used, but the definition of creative depends on the perspective of mind that sees, i cant see any creative aspect on that flash logo, is to much flash gordon, even though it results on your brand name

just putting my constructive critique here, right now it doesn't speak to me, and i think it comes off as pretty plain. it's good to simplify but you have to play around a bit more with shapes and push it past boundaries so it doesn't look like an imitation of the other startup brands who would use an emblem style logo. i say research more logos that look similar to the direction you want your logo to look like and see what commonalities they have and what rules you can break once you know what they are.

i would suggest playing around with the shape of the mountains because it doesn't look like a mountain range, and i think it deviates too far from an abstract mountain range that people still won't see it if you explain to them what it is.

right now it's a good start, and i agree with what jake said, especially the part about it not being fundamentally wrong. maybe if you push it past what's already known your logo might become more eye-catching. like play around with better san-serif typefaces that aren't too common. try not to use that photoshop text tool to warp your words around because it looks amateur. you can google tutorials on how to warp text using photoshop without distorting the shape of the letters. it's kinda late and i don't really know how to explain what better all the shit i've been trying to say, but here's some examples of logos that are also emblem-based













anyway, best of luck on finalizing

Sjohnnn - your site looks plain and your grammar is horrible, i.e;
"This a clothing brand that was originated in California that was started with just and i idea turned into a dream. Bigandmighty was started in 2009 our goal is just to be simple and clean."                                                                                               

That should read like this;
"Big And Mighty is a clothing brand originated in California. From a dream, to an idea, to fruition in 2009 - Big And Mighty has always been about clean lines and simple designs."

Or something to that extend... You can use it if you want, no fees.

Its funny that you are criticizing him on his grammar but you messed a word up. Just saying that I almost called somebody out on something like that and then I learned they are from Spain and English isn't their primary language.


Haha you got me on that one. His grammar is still horrible, and that is something that would put a lot of people off.
I'm actually puertorican but I speak three languages, so I should get a free pass on that one word lol.

I have come up with a couple of different names for my still-in-the-early-stages brand and wanted to ask what you guys think of this one, "Wolves In Sheep's Clothing", or singular "Wolf In Sheep's Clothing".

I like 'em but I think there's already too much wolf stuff in the streetwear world...
What do you guys think?

Wolf theme is incredibly overdone. I think you can think of a more creative way to describe betrayal, and a more succinct brand name.

Yeah I figured the whole wolf thing was getting out of hand, that's why I asked for your opinions. I do have a couple of ideas that incorporate that theme, so I will have to turn them into shirts at some point.

I don't know If betrayal is the right word Im looking for... More like cunning.
Thanks for the reply grams.

Yeah the wolf thing is way over played as a logo goes. The name is not that bad but you can protray at in a different way other then using say a picture of a wolf.

Where do you guys get your AAA shirt from why so much?

Where do you guys get your AAA shirt from why so much?


i used to buy it from some '99 cent' store back home(CA) for 4 bucks each. now i have to find a new source for them in vegas

i also had a good source for fabric from stores in SF. had a friend who graduated from FIDM and helped out with the sewing and my old teacher has his own screen printing business...but now i have to start from scratch


$4 is way to much for Alstyle shirts when you know how much they can be had for @ wholesale shirt spots.
$2-2.5 for white and colors
12 for $24 white
12 for $30 for colored
$3.50 2xl and up

thats how much I get them for @ the resell spot I get them from.
Alstyle 1301
If I call from my job that see that I work for a dealership and give me resell prices no tax.
If I walk in white are 2.5 and I get tax

Wholesale and resell are different at locations.
you buy wholesale you have to get 12 of the same size shirts
resell 12 of the same color mix and match sizes

I live in California. I don't know if you guys have a lot of 5 for $10 spots in your area. Most of those places resell Port and Company for 5 for $10. I have never tested those out yet for print though. Only Hanes Beefy, Gildan and AAA

JUST FOR THE SHIRTS??

That's outrageous.

Yeah shop around in that one bro. The only good thing about printers providing shirts is if they mess up a shirt it's on them and they'll have to provide a replacement.
Some other shops if you provide they say do so @ your own risk. If one is messed up they did little to replace or charge for an addition shirt but maybe do the print for free.
I'm sure they shouldn't have a problem if you point them to a certain website that has the shirts @ a lower cost and purchasing from them. They may have to set up an account with them but that shouldn't be hard at all.

One issue I had with a printer:
Printed some shirts. About 2-3 months later I got around to do a sample wash on one that my wife dried as well. The print came out faded. I asked the printed and he said "oh they may need a extra flash dry applied to them"
Got me pissed off. Although it was my fault for doing a test wash 2 month later I think any professional printer should atleast do a test wash on the shirt themselves to make sure they are providing a good print rather then just wasting money and time and printing 50 shirts the same way. Without testing.
Just a FYI for anyone who is printing through someone else. I would def. ask for this sort of quality control before picking up or finalizing a order.

^^Damn! My printer is trying to rape me on these prices. Being where I'm from, I can hardly even find anything better that still makes sense. I got a quote from them and they were trying to charge me 8 for just AAA shirts with the one color print on them and then 1.50 each for printed in tags. Then they also quoted me this setup charge of 55 on top of a color change from black to white and the cost of the screen.
Someone please help!!!!!!

Honestly, thats not super bad depending on the amount of shirts you tried to order, maybe for AAA shirts. I used AA shirts and ended up paying around 14 total for each shirt with the print and different colors, and no set up fee. I only had 125 made though, and the place i got them done at is expensive but very good.


Damn they got your ass for money too haha.

I didn't realize how little research half of you did. Threadbird was my first place to order... And you think that is cheap haha. Just wait until you put time into looking at options and not waiting until someone on here just hands you info.
