Starting a New Line/Brand Feedback Thread

Apr 17, 2012 @ 03:48
how do you expect anyone to give advice if they don't know what the phrase is?
and if your having a dispute like this and you can't come to agreement to the point you need to ask a public forum, your going to have a lot of trouble as you work more because there will be tons of things you both will have different opinions on.

Agreed. If you can't decide on a measly motto then how are going to agree on t shirt designs let alone branding in general.


Have a solid idea of what your brand is going to be before posting. Identify what makes your brand unique..what are your beliefs? That question cannot be found from other ppl but yourself because it is your own brand; gg.

stuff like that looks really generic.. plus you're not even a high end brand yet so I'm not entirely sure why you're spitting clothing out with your company logo on top.

that goes for all starting companies btw.



Its not generic, its a simple design with a good looking logo, and to not put our logo on
our product? are you stupid?

Hello all,

I am looking to work with an individual who is serious about their clothing line, and has taken the steps to establish their line. I am a graphic designer, marketer, and someone willing to contribute as much time as possible in return for a job opportunity or compensation.

I have been wearing "streetwear" and trending clothing for awhile now, and have no problem with the designs many of these companies are trying to achieve.

My graphic design skills are very advanced in the sense that I have been using Photoshop for seven years. If anyone wants to give it a go, I will draw up something for your company with watermarks over it, and we can go from there.

I also handle social networking with regards to marketing. I can get your Youtube videos attention, and spread awareness to your company by getting you to the top pages of niche related searches. Managing tumblrs, facebooks, etc.

If I can assume a higher role in one of these companies then I would be glad to take that on.
Please don't ask me for a portfolio due to the fact these designs are outdated and completely unrelated. I feel as if you are entitled to your own specific design so that you can truly judge my skills.

Again, if anyone is serious and interested in working with me then email me at michaelmaturi@gmail.com
Thanks!


hey mike,

its pretty common for anyone working with a freelance designer to ask for a portfolio....if your designs are outdated and completely unrelated to streetwear...then make a portfolio of new, related work!

im sure that anyone interested would want to see a sample of your work before starting a custom piece.

I agree. If someone is going be hiring you they are going to want to see previous samples of your style, aesthetic and skills.

Just my 2 cents...rthapparel i think you need to remove the coming soon part for the crewnecks and hoodies i think why even show it if they cant buy it?..

Also TAKE music OFF ITS ANNOYING...to me when a website plays music i turn it off n 2 seconds...or i think where the fuck is that noise coming from and try to close the tab..

Stop with the coming soon all together..dont try to use the Very Limited gimmick any more i notice i see that alot with new people starting and they cant manage to sell their so called limited pieces....

Dont post the mockup design for you pre-view image when your selling...

make sure everythng flowes dont have a website called AKAcollectiveco but your bigcartel url says aka clothing?

I've always felt that any new line should establish its own identity through images and messages before they just start printing their logo and name shirts as the only design. If the consumer doesn't understand the message of your brand, they won't be compelled to buy it. Just because it's cool in your head, or cool with you and your friends doesn't mean everyone else who have no idea what your brand is will understand.

Did you get them manufactured or is it blank you found on the internet? This sounds very interesting...

yes and no. depends on your logo. if it's just a simple type then don't, but if it's something cool and original like johnny cupcakes logo it works. you should still focus on branding your designs though instead of using your logo. depending on the logo, when i see a logo tee it makes me think the brand is lacking creativity as far as general designs go.

I got a blank from online. I emailed the company my business plan and talked intensively with them, so if I do decide to use them, I'll be able to get a better discount than normal.

I'm all about simplicity, so a big intricate and busy design will put me off. I mean, just look at what sells the most - imo simple/clean designs.

A good "logo" shirt is usually a different version, modified, rather than a simple regurgitation.

Take for instance the Hundreds. They began with a simple adam bomb, which like Jake said is unique enough to warrant purchase without any loyalty cause it looks cool. The collection they released with don pendleton is a great example of a modified logo collection, google it.

^^^ way too many colors for my taste and the whole heart thing is kinda womanly...
Not for me man but good luck nonetheless...


I appreciate the honestly man.

The crazy thing is that most of my customers/supporters are men! The women always think its not unisex tees when they are.

Much love.

What style do you think I'm aiming for?
That picture with the girl has been reblogged all over tumblr, but before that, i didnt see any designs like mine.
Im not aiming for any style, just doing what I think looks dope and releasing what the people like.

Nonetheless....i appreciate the feedback!

If anybody can find a reliable place with a small minimum to buy camp hats....thatd be dope, and HIGHLY appreciated. I searched all over the web and only found one place but there "minimum" was 500 pieces -_-.

Camp hats are the style of hats that you see Supreme throwing out now.

Thanks!

Honesty that would be so dope to me, my dad runs a vintage roadbike/bike shop. and ive personally owned over a 100 bikes, so that culture has always been relevant in my life
but thank you for the kind words, much appreciated!

I disagree, I hate when brands try to convince me about how they are different than other brands when they seem to be producing the same designs. The designs alone should be strong enough for the consumer to figure out what kind of brand they represent or they're trying to be.
