People derive inspiration from different places. Sometimes people look at things and don't subconsciously know that they're doing something similar to something they saw. A lot of street wear is about jacking any ways all the big brands do it, weather you know the reference or not. Its all on how you flip it that counts. I personally like the first 2 tees.


Much respect.. I don't know what that guy is talking about, but I can assure people that these guys didn't deliberately ape any style. Here are their past releases, to show the diversity:






Thanks Again
Yo that Go Bills shit is really creative...mad props for that. Do you know where I can get my hands on an XL.

I really like that LMC stuff. Looks very clean.

I may have to hook up with you guys in the future and do a Colab if interested.

I know it still needs some touch ups but i just wanna get some quick feed back. Its not a logo or something i would put on a tee. just trying to get used to my wacom tablet. made this based from the Hermes logo.


Looks like a clean design. I don't understand what direction it's going but for a first timer with the tablet you have some potential.

If i may ask which Wacom tablet did you pick up. Been thinking of getting one myself so I can stop paying someone else to finalize my designs.

Bit too plain for a brand that's just starting out, also fonts look like they're straight from dafont.
Not too bad for just starting out though.

nothing wrong with using fonts form a source......most are even free...no need to buy fonts.

just try to stay away from decorative fonts...most script fonts too....

for those, it is best to do your own!

basic block fonts, serif and sans-serif, are commonly used by lots of designers!

hand drawn fonts can add some character to a design....

and there are some cases that call for a simple, generic, free, basic font.

Sup HB fam...I'm with a street team for LoveMoney, and LMC is a relatively new brand based in Boston, MA. They just launched a new site and a few new drops. The company name is about loving what you do and the having the money (fame, etc.) come later (money follows love), so they have a blog and tees in that theme. They been at it since 2010 (sold out of Bodega and Green Street Vault, along with others), but this is the new stuff they just released. Love to have a chance to build. Peace HB!

jees.. i feel like i've seen all of this somewhere before
i dont know if its a rip or not, but one looks very similary to

A rip? No, both are inspired by propaganda, media consumption, psychological manipulation and so on.

I'm just part of their street team and we're getting the word out for the LMC crew. This seemed like the thread for new brands announcing their grind on Hypebeast. They're still pretty new, so it never hurts to build with people in the same boat.

Thanks for the feedback!

the tv's are the exact same thing.
April 26, 2012 @ 01:48:25



they both used the same vintage tv image...no big deal. it happens sometimes.

it never really effects much.
April 26, 2012 @ 02:56:52
They're going to laugh at that. They likely just paid for a stock photograph that a bunch of other designers might have used without knowing. It probably happens more times than people realize with designs that are digital photos. Seems most peeps are giving us the thumbs up which is much appreciated. Not sure what jake's story is but good luck!

No doubt. Didn't take it as hate. Just didn't think the TV was a big deal. I'm serious when I say good luck on Distant Light. It's all love (no pun intended).

Peace!

The bottom T in the circle looks like Tits Brand.

Anyways if you would've done the hand writing by hand it would have been better.(No hate.) Even if you tried to recreate the font it would've changed it enough to make it "yours"

There's just something about custom typography...

I understand deleting your account because I wouldn't want new customers googling the brand and finding, "what do you guys think of this design?" posts. But I would recommend you create a new account and just use it on the brand forum - kinda like Benny Gold. The fact that he still hangs around the forum shows that he cares about how he came up. Just my 2 cents. Good luck.
