You want a logo for Apex? How about http://apex-athletic-apparel.myshopify.com/

Or http://www.reach-the-apex.com/

Or https://www.facebook.com/weareapex
I've seen all these links. There all no name brands who don't sell shit under the name "Apex". As of now I'm one of them, but my hopes are to make a product great enough to become a house hold name in streetwear. I'm going to need a ton of work obviously
If you seriously want to run with the name APEX then I would do an extensive trademark search and make sure that no one has the rights to the mark. http://tess2.uspto.gov/bin/gate.exe?f=searchss&state=4803blinkyeyesgq0w7.1.1

If it's clear and you're serious then you can consider applying for the trademark and forming a business. It's not your logo, but the products that it stands for that will attract your customers. As far as the design I would take into consideration the printing process for whatever you plan to put your logo on. Those fading shapes might look cool on a computer screen but they may be a lot harder to print onto a shirt than you think. The best logos are simple and the name and lettering for APEX definitely fits into that category. But again, it's all about the clothes. Good products will sell regardless of the name. Your focus right now should be on designing really cool shit that you think people would spend their hard earned money on. It needs to be much more than a shirt that just says APEX, no matter how cool the logo is.

Hey guys here from Honolulu, Hawaii,
Im coming up with a new brand called Luminary Minds, 
To those who dont know what Luminary is its --> Luminary - Bright 
gonna be based on conspiracies, mystery, and anything the mind has interest in. 
because luminary is very close and almost the same definition as the Illuminati i 
kind if tied it close, but i dont just wanna direct the brand to those kind of audiences...
i want to be all around like the streetwear brands we see today 
Anyways I just created and LLC company so i can keep the name.
I still tweak on it, creating multiple copies but i wanna know what you think. 
(Invalid img)



Everything has been thought out when doing this logo. 
1. The two triangles you see are the letters L and M. look closely and you can see, you also can flip this in anyway and still see L and M 
2. The star in the middle of the circle has 13 points, which of course our brand was created on 2013, on the 13 date of Oct.
   The star also means being Luminary - Bright 
3. Which from the above brings us why i made the wings, there are 10 wing pieces, symbolizing the month of Oct 
4. The circle around everything is a rope which binds us and our minds together creating an infinite brightness 
    -the mind will never stop being luminary (bright) 

comments, sugestions, anything. 
thanks everybody 
You lost me with the Illuminati and all the symbolism but the two triangles making an L and M could be a very timeless logo.

Yeah I'll check it out. Everything you said is true. And I basically scrapped the idea for that logo I made yesterday and posted here, and am currently working on another potential logo/ t shirt design. i'll post back here once its finished.

apexi which is a popular aftermarket car product
and apex wheels. Those are just the top of my head

DTG is cool for samples. But if you plan selling products to the masses is not the way to go.
In the end for something as simple as that I would be more cost effective to silk screen.
If you are doing custom orders I guess, cause you don't have to drop a large sum of money all at once.
Pay as you go. Up to you.
Get quote from screen printers in your area. Multiple quotes from as many different printers as you can find and go from there.

apex logo is  wack..... educate yourself in the field of typography and graphic design then try to start a brand.

he's right. typography should be key and the foundation to all things design

I know y'all probably sick of me and APEX by now, but I just wanted to get some opinions on this design/logo that I was working on a day ago/ today. Thanks
what exactly is the idea behind your brand? what market/style are you aiming for ? I like the sleeve bar graphic and the simple yet clean look. But at the same time I don't see myself paying more than $15 for this kinda of design.

Definitely going in the right direction with this. Looks better. I really like the sleeve detail, that's cool as fuck to me. I'd really like to see you switch up your brand name and simplify the designs a bit...

I meant about the theme of the brand.
I dont really LM to be about Illuminati seeing Luminary is close to the word Illuminati.
And yes ive been getting some feedback that the triangles that make up LM are dope too. smokeyface

Damn, this is fucking nice
I feel as if it could be another type of jacket rather than a coaches I know it would be harder to print but I fell like the design would go perfect with a more beater jacket. Still an amazing jacket and props on the pricing

Thanks man, appreciate it. Why do you want to see the brand name change? And simplify it how so?
It's your brand so obviously do what you want. But I just feel like "Apex" is just not something that gets people's attention... also remind of Avirex and Pyrex and all things "ex". And I shouldn't have said simplify that didn't make sense... should've just said make the design smaller. Like if you put that diamond in the pocket area then put your text in the yellow area that could be cool... just an idea.
