Whats up Hypebeast. I started my own clothing line for the reason of pushing a positive lifestyle and chasing your dreams while helping others around you do the same. We all have a special gift and we have a right to use it to the fullest of our potential. I was tired of seeing the same trends, same style, same everything in the fashion industry and I wanted to show the world what passionate hard work will get you in life. Not too many people are truly creative anymore and dont really think for themselves. Lost Island encourages everyone to be as creative as they can be and build something for yourself no matter what obstacle it may be. I would appreciate the support from the Hypebeast family and ill try my best to do the same.

on IG for more info

The brand is based off of people who always believe they can be on top. When I was younger, I was always taught that I can do anything I can set my mind to. I try to express these ideas into clothing. I use the shark as my main logo, because not only am I a huge fan of sharks, but I see myself as wanting to become a top predator. I want to destroy the competition, to be the best. That's what DESIGNED BY DEUCE is all about, being number one, being the "feared."

Thank you for your time to read, I appreciate it.

ironic it has 'deuce' in it. i love sharks too.

Ok then bruh let me tell you what you need here;) First cut out the name. Stick with the eyes and put it on a black tee. Use the 'black' as negative space. and the white becomes the print.

You should cut out the name because most people don't like branding all over there clothes anymore so if you must brand do it in a subtle way. Maybe in the corner using your original word mark font (like the one in your avatar) or create a small icon for your brand name.

Remember to remain consistent with fonts and designs throughout your collections. Most of branding isn't great design, it's consistency. 

Here's a little mock up to give you some ideas of how to approach this design. Keep in mind that this is a QUICK mock up but nevertheless what I believe to be a solid direction moving forward.

Ok so I have been giving my two cents on just about everyone here but I have yet to show anything I have done. Let me explain what I do: I am a consultant for start-up brands. Not just in fashion but also a variety of other fields. My SPECIALTY is fashion because I worked as and illustrator/designer for a slew of brands while building my portfolio.

That being said I recently had someone challenge me into making a brand in less than a day. With a logo, slogan, a write up, a few shirts, and without the use of my illustration skills.

My intention of this project was to show that any brand is viable as long as the idea is fleshed and creative. Doesn't have to be the best brand ever, it just has to be presentable. So without further explanation let me introduce my "fake" brand  dubbed "50"


'50' Logo w/ slogan

The name 50 was derived as a parody to the American 1950's when sexism and social inequality ran rampant. This is portrayed in '50' through the medium of advertisements of the time or of those that are socially unacceptable in today's overly political correct world. As '50' is a parody the slogan "It could be worse" serves as a tale-tell sign that as human culture has progressed to where they are currently, there is still room for improvement.

Initial Line-Up
As '50' uses antiquated advertisements as it's main form of artistic medium DTG or Direct to Garment printing was chosen over costly screen printing. However all '50' shirts will be printed on high quality, soft, 100% cotton shirts.

T-shirt (Blow) $25.00

T-shirt (Get it Right) $25.00

T-Shirt(Push it Good) $25.00

Initially most of our sales will run via our online store. For this reason tees were given a $25.00 price point because we factored in shipping cost. With '50' we want to offer free shipping to all residents living within the continental United States.

Misc.
Post Card Stickers 

Blow 3 pack $6.00

Postcard sized stickers were chosen as a miscellaneous item so that our customers can join in on "advertising" as the '50' brand encourages its followers to join in on revealing the ridiculousness of our socially awkward roots.

-enclosure

While '50' is presented as a brand it is in fact a living collection. New garments are released as the designers find better ways to reflect the core message of the brand i.e. "It could be worse..." In the future '50' will expand its offerings into specialized accessories, posters, and other garments that fit its mold. We thank you for reviewing our brand and hope that you continue to follow us in the foreseeable future.

So yeah not the best brand but at least you can see what the direction and intention of the brand is. You even get the price points and why the price point was chosen. This display is commonly referred to as a 'showcase' or 'line sheet'. Nobody really cares how passionate I am about my brand. All anyone will ever see is how prepared I am. If your line/brand is prepared it could be crap and still be viable.

So what do you think? Try to think objectively. Would this brand sell based on what you saw? Is there a market for it? Ultimately its up to you but yeah, be dastardly in your reviews+ Have fun.

Gone.

What's cool about today Goon is that you can literally get the domain name and be good for a LONG time. You could also register for a business EIN (a tax ID) that has your business name attached to it. That costs almost NOTHING. In fact for online businesses I believe it does cost nothing. The best way to protect your name unfortunately is to register it with the state which IS quite costly. All the documents can be prepared through legalzoom (best bet). With LegalZoom you don't have to worry about all the hoopla. Just fill in the necessary info, prepared to shell out 400-500 and then proceed.

Noxx is an upcoming streetwear brand by a group of artists. With passion for both art + fashion, we created a line of sweatshirt designs with bold and unique prints made with our own renderings, paintings, and drawings.
We really need some more supporters for our project for this brand to come true :-(

You can find more about our brand and our sweatshirts here!:
