I have just finished the design stage after 8 months. Everything has been ordered, except the products. I'm ordering those by this week. Then, sewing on tags, getting a crew of friends and packaging all of the stuff. I wan't to spend at least 3 weeks on building up some hype and spreading the word.

tanks for the last feedback


I like this design better than your last one. You could do with a bit thicker lines because right now there seems to be a lot of empty space in the logo. Another thing is, the "division" on top of "since 2012" doesn't need to be there, it is repetitive. One last thing, the sayings on the bottom of the logo are kinda difficult to understand and follow...


about the lines I also thought of changing them, but i liked the final form, but i'm still working

still don't really like it. that type doesn't look very good, and still un-rememberable. looks really generic, and the text placement is a little cluttered.
the name is pretty cool, you could definitely do something cool with it.

i did the type, im trying do make a simple logo, and i like to work with simple lines, dont like to work with things thats is to much decorative, but yes i apreciate the comments, thanks

decorative lines have nothing to do with it. the
type is just bad, there are thousands of other simple fonts to use

There are always two sides to a coin; I like the font and the logo works for me. But again, everyone has a different taste.

it still looks extremely amateur, and could use a lot of reworking. I'm not hating, I'm trying to help you

<a href='http://hypebeast.com/members/jake/' rel='nofollow'>@jake</a> when are you actually dropping product? From the looks of what you've shown I think I might want to cop some product

how far have you guys got so far in developing or selling your brand?

are most peeps still in design stage?....brand development?....webstore launch?....pick up any accounts?

what stage of the process are you currently on?


Still in the promoting and developing stages.
I started my line as a way to express some of the crazy creative stuff that goes in my head. Not all my shirt pertain to my company name Broken Bank but I don't limit myself that way either. If I come up with a neat design that I think may sell well I just make the shirt and throw it on eBay, make sure and add a link to my blog and website to get some exposure. Plus it helps generate cash for my company to make the shirt for my line.
Plus it doesn't hurt my pockets as much when I'm getting 5 color shirts printed for $3.50 a pop.
Once I come up with enough shirts that I'm comfortable with I'll do a release party in my area.
But as of right now whatever I create I put on my page to sell. No need to just sit on product and lose money.

Can I give you an advice for the better of your business?

I just checked your site and you have a lot of grammar errors. I would suggest getting someone you know who is well versed and have him/her proofread your stuff before making it public. You can easily turn off a number of people by that alone.

I'll be glad to help with the grammar if you need, I do have a creative writing degree. We can work something out for that "back to the beach" piece - that bitch is nice. Just trying to help my man.
