I love how ya'll give me thumbs down on literally everything i post, even on explanations. I could post a bible verse and ya'll would still give me thumbs down, i support people but yet ya'll hate, but it's alright it just motivates me to do better
Man, don't ged mad about the thumbs down thing. No one is trying to be mean, but sometimes people are not willing to spend time on tips and criticism, and that's why we simply thumb up or down.
You know when you go at your favorite store to buy some tees and then the seller tries to impress you?
"I've got some that will be perfect for you! You'll love it!" and then when you see them (in case you dont like any) you just go "Nah..." "Nah..." "Nice but not for me..." "Maybe another time...".
This is the real life version of thumbing down.
If the product is in a store, with a price tag, and someone is showing it like a special thing or hypeworth, there is no point engaging in criticism. You'd be like: "No, this typography sucks" "That design is way off balance" "What a crappy sewing!" "I hate all this colors". The only thing you can create by acting this way is embarrasment.
I personally didn't thumb you down, but i believe one of the main reasons people are doing it to you is the fact that you made a bad 1st impression. You showed up with very rough t-shirt templates and you were already selling them on estabilished brand prices, and they are not even made yet. This bad start just ringed the alarm of lower professionalism.
By looking at the mockups you did, it's impossible to tell if they have good cotton, sewing, fit, printing, and if you will remove the blank factory tags to put yours on.
You will make a lot more of this community if you clear things up so people can tell if their feedback will be worthy or not.
I like the name AMBESSA. Sounds good and reminds me of Ambassador, which is also strong. You made one of the hardest parts. Keep improving the designs and the way you present them, because some guys are showing great stuff here (lookbooks, websites, teasers) and raising this thread's bar everyday.
PS* A few pages back the dude from Trainwrecker's Club went through the same "thumb down" situation and educatedly asked for deeper feedback. I may never buy one of his products, but if i ever see them around, i'll have respect for their work because of how they behaved. By the end of the day, your brand is an extension of yourself.
