Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

I personally don't like sneaker-related tees but I think these are executed well. I like the second one especially because even though its nothing new and original, the way you paired the collegiate and shoelace text worked really well together.


Good eye on that. I actually did some thought on that part.
I took critique you guys said about the last shirt with the non matching fonts and put it to use.
Choosing good fonts is actually a lot harded when pairing it with the right design or artwork.
I actually probably went overboard and used that font on some other T's as well, but I'm making sure the designs match as well.

probably not people on hypebeast though......


yeah all in all they have some solid stuff. Not everything speaks to me but execution is pretty good on most of his shirts.


Bobby Fresh has solid designs but I wouldn't compare them to Triumvir or Mishka. Both brands have a strong following. What type of success are you looking for?

I feel you on this last line. I would say that someone who is truly analyzing your brand would rather see consistent and well put together designs that are somewhat repetitive than more different ones that are a lot more scattered.

I don't really mind this bracelet trend right now but if these are you 'promo photos' I would suggest at least putting them on a bed sheet is better than a the hundreds or dsc background because it seems as though you might be promoting them more than yourself.

I have an advertising opportunity available to most brands I've seen in here.

I blog for DopeDrops.com and we've been wanting to hold some giveaways at least once every 2 weeks starting at the end of the month/early may.

I'll give a short explanation of how it'd work. PM me for more information if needed/interested. You provide the product, we provide the contest/advertising. How much you want to giveaway is up to you, but the more product is going to get more attention. To enter the contest you'd either post on twitter/facebook something like "____ & DopeDrops are giving away free shirts! Click here to enter!" It'll spread, because who doesn't want free stuff. So you'll get a ton of views/likes/follows. The winner/s would be announced at random a week later, and then you can ship out the stuff to them.

I'm sure if you're interested you want more information about DopeDrops. We started just 6 months ago but we've been growing very fast. We already average about 1.4-1.6k views a day. Just over 500 followers on twitter, and we have a number of connections that would help advertise these contests with retweets such as Best Midwest Ent. and some artists we've become friends with.


Just lemme know if you're interested, these contests seem like they'd be insanely good advertising for both parties.


Oh, and BTW, if anyone has a line dropping soon and you would like me to get you on dopedrops just shoot me a PM about that as well. I won't do this for every brand, but like I said there has only been a few brands in this thread that I haven't liked. I love supporting up and comers, especially since I fit that description right now as well.

Thanks for all the feedback guys. I've decided that I want to lean more on to the graphic hand-drawn non-uniform side of design. Also about the stussy font; I agree it is very unique and I love that brand but for some reason some aspects of the font are too "intense". I feel that for someone new to the brand, its hard to come to a realization that the logo stands for "Stussy" but I guess there's no need since there at the stage where people buy shirts to wear their logo haha!

Also; to add a note; the UN ordinary is going to be a design, not a logo, for my logo I definitely will incorporate a fully uniform distinct image. And of course, I still need to add a graphic design or something because having just unordinary won't sell especially when I'm an unknown brand.

About the sloppiness and non-uniformity of my design: I personally just like designs like this:

and this:


As opposed to this:

or


Also about the stussy weird unique font: I just did a trial


Thanks for your feedback everybody!! Really do appreciate it. If you wanna check out my latest designs you can head over to www.facebook.com/ezpz.co ||| It would mean a lot if you dropped a like and + im giving away free shit of designs that I make here and there. There's no downfall :p

Designer here, I think what yall need to remember is that there can be typographic logos and illustrative logos. Your example of Mishka's eyeball is illustrative, and Benny Gold's is typographic whether it's handwritten or with use of typeface (or font). Stussy's logo isn't a font. They don't use a font. It's Stussy's handwritten signature.

Mishka, Bape, and Johnny Cupcakes would be good examples of their use of both illustrative and typographic logos.

Your examples of those designs on the shirts are just designs based off royal crests, they're not really logos, but the green shirt could pass as a logo because of the way it's been designed.

There's many different methods and approaches on logo design, so do whatever works for you and what your brand represents, just as long as you follow the basic rules. Hope I cleared it up for yall.

What kind of labels would you get made to sew on the front of a 5 panel? Just a regular woven label?
Apr 06, 2012 @ 11:14

Wel Read This isn't my brand but if your interested in following what I do with WINWEL I just started posting on my blog again and will be documenting what and who I'm privileged to work with.

@CraftySince’90

I'd go with woven satin. They are the rougher tags but you dont need top notch ones if its on the outside of a hat.
Apr 06, 2012 @ 17:28
Cool thanks, like the ones HUF use on the outside on the front of the cap.

Those ones on the font of Supreme, Huf etc. are woven damask. If you want any resources, hit me up!

What's everyone's take on online vendors (big cartel, shopify, etc.)?

Which ones do you like? Why?

Also, which do you feel are best for customization? (this more than anything)
