Hey Everyone, 
I dropped my summer collection a couple of weeks ago and I thought I would post up here for some feedback. Let me know what you think 









Bluu Dreams clothing is a nautical themed clothing company based out of Long Island NY. Our main logo/character is the old vintage looking deep sea diver. I choose the deep sea diver because I thought the concept of him searching of treasure at the bottom of the ocean was dope. I liked it so much I decided to base my company around the idea. I do this by releasing my clothing in limited runs as if it was treasure (once its gone, it doesn't get reprint for the web store) . Every collection I do comes with its own unique theme, hang tags, limited edition stickers and other surprises. 

You can see the rest of the look book here

Man, you've been dropping great stuff for a long time here in this thread and i can see that you are still getting better!

You are definitely bringing something new to the game, while there's a lot of people out there doing nautica themed stuff playing the same old song: anchors, ships...

It reminds me (in a good way) of Johnny Cupcakes' way of bringing fun and design variety to a single theme.

Do you have a team or BD is more of a one-man-brand? Garments and photos are great also.

I'm gonna go get some sample tees printed and I found a printer, but I don't know how I'm gonna bring my graphics for the shirt or how the process is gonna work can somebody tell me how the printers work and what should I bring to the printers shop.
The way ive experienced it is you can send it to them via email or in a usb, and you should have a template of how you want the sizing of the design printed on the tee. I emailed them my design (vector format) along with a template of how big i wanted the design to be printed on the tee, when i got there to place the order we reviewed specs of how big i wanted the design on the tee, the blanks we were using, inside tags and the color of the design and it all went well, just make sure to review everything before you leave it to them to print them because any little small detail that you leave out can mess it up. So id take take a USB with the design and template, that should do it. You should ask them the artwork requirements thoe, it its a vector design it or a high resolution photoshop design you shouldnt have a problem.
Thanks man!
Another thing:

If your designs are graphic or typographic (not photos), remember to separate the different colours in different layers.

It will be much easier for the printer guy to handle and for you to possibly do some color variants.

You should also watch some Adobe Illustrator tutorials on YT to expand your creativity and work-quality.

So your saying I should make a different layer for every color I have on my graphic?
Yes. The printer will print on the shirt color by color. Normally, on traditional silk-screen process, the more colors your design have, higher the price.

Check this tutorial http://vector.tutsplus.com/tutorials/designing/super-slick-screen-printing-separations-with-illustrator/

You can see the whole design work and understand how to the sum of all layers can bring life to amazing graphics.

Wow! Thanks for the kind words, I really appreciate it. I'm happy to hear the brand reminds you of Johnny Cupcakes...in the good way lol. I would say Johnny Cupcakes, The Hundreds, BBC, Ice Cream and Bape are my biggest influences. I love how each brand has their own theme and made their own world out of it. Im currently trying to do the same thing while using my deep sea diver character. 

PS Bluu Dreams is a one man band. I didn't go to school for art or anything but I always could draw. I taught myself how to use the design programs and everything has been moving in the right direction ever since.

When are upcoming brands going to stop making pocket tees? The style is dead.
Can't say I agree with you entirely. Although Pocket Tee's are fashionable in New Zealand at the moment. (yes we are behind) So we are selling to our target market.

Hey man, i was taking a closer look to your post and website to be able to give you honest and fair feedback

You just said that you are doing everything in your brand and this shows your bravery and entrepreneur spirit, but the audience feedback - while the work is still in progress - is very important for you to know where you actually have a chance to rock.

In your website, i counted 23 clothing pieces (and you promised there's more on the way). Considering that you are still in the first steps, don't think is a little much? Defining a smaller number of pieces, doing seasonal releases (summer/winter or spring/summer/autumm/winter) will bring a lot more design accuracy and quality to your clothes.

Your website is well-done, but the way you presented the clothes on it looks a lot like a bazaar/flea market. You know that feeling of seeing a lot of things, but nothing eye-catching?

If you take a time to read pages from this thread, you will notice that the designers who came up with with smaller collections had better feedback than those who appeared out of the blue with dozens of shirts and fleeces and hats. Why? Because when you have less pieces to drop, you can focus a lot more on details (tags, sewing, stickers, photo direction) and the audience can clearly understand what your brand is about.

Some minor considerations:

1 - It's about time for a logo!
2 - You wouldn't believe the amount of "illuminatti eye" designs this thread has seen.
3 - In your Illuminatti Eye shirt, the words "Hybrid" and "Clothing" have completely different curving, like they don't belong to the same circle.
4 - In the "Customer Photos" session of your website, there's a girl wearing "King kitty r00ler of the universe tank!". This design is eBay's cream of the crap. If you really designed this, search "king cat" on eBay and cry over the hundreds of dollars people are making with your art.

Wish you all the best!

Looking for feedback on t-shirt prototype I just made quickly. Will be apart of my late summer/early fall line.
Was thinking it feels a bit empty and needs something more, maybe like a mouth or something. - anyone else agree?

Trials & Triumph

Post: 234

Join Date: Apr 2013

aight wassup hb, so if yall remember i posted this shirt of a fat lady on it with her boobs out and got hellllaaa flak for it because the price was wayy overpriced. So long story short none of them shits sold, matter fact none of the collection sold. I mean I was putting long sleeve shirts with graphics on em for $300+ so of course them shits didnt sell. It was outrageous but we've been doing a lot of thinking since we took a minor step back and we're gonna just come up with a whole new brand to handle the high end stuff that we want to create. With the new brand we'll focus on creating things using weird fabrics and uhh we'll be focusing on experimentation and innovation and I mean contemporary stuff too ya know. But for this brand we're gonna price it reasonably like it should have been from the beginning and our visuals will be more raw and shit. Its just gonna be a streetwear brand for streetwear heads or other people that fuck with it too i guess. Basically both brands will focus on its own demographic and have its own niche and each one will have its own price range. See what I tried to do was make Trials & Triumph the high end brand but the fan base was all (streetwear). Umm yea I cant say as to what time we're gonna start back releasing stuff but it should be early next week, hey thanks for not giving me too much criticism on the Lonely Fiona tee's price last month, and thanks for trynna steer me straight hb. I learned and umm thanks guys for having those long ass arguments with me on the price and shit i'm pretty sure yall thought I was crazy.

Lookbook doesnt really capture the brand, could of done much better considering the location and the lighting. The designs arent all that either, their kind of a little too plain although their are a lot of brands that pull of the simple and plain thing these designs dont capture my attention. A little more work on the designs and lookbook would really help you guys.

and you seem to push be free have no limites you can do what you want but then what does that have to do with trainwreckers club

________________________________________________________________________________________________

This lookbook and designs were specifically designed only for the fearless mind collection. It was a release for in between summer and fall seasons since my summer collection was delayed. I wanted to do a collection of shirts around a certain concept as an external of the brand. For fall and winter season I will release more of my branding and will see more designs with trainwreckers club on them and what not. I wanted to use my typography and really show that in this small collection and how it can speak on its own. This was just to release something a little different and kinda of show the direction of where my brand is going from now on. 

I totally understand that I used a lot of images for this on my website and I could have just really chose a small amount. The name of my brand has its own meaning and is named Trainwreckers Club for a reason. But everything I design doesn't have to show a train on it because my brand is not just about trains and wrecking it. Trainwreckers Club is just the name of the brand and not what my designs are gonna show. If that makes any sense to you guys. But thanks for the feedback and critique! I appreciate it

Oh and when you say that i seem "to push be free have no limites you can do what you want but then what does that have to do with trainwreckers club" It does have to do something with the brand. Its the message that I want to give out when you read our about page.
