[Quote] 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.

[Quote] this. i like that you put a lot of work into it, but the name doesn't match your clothing theme. and try to use better typefaces than the ones built into windows..it comes off a little amateurish. and don't use futura, it's overdone. try from sites like [URL]

what's with the random poses? they don't seem to communicate well even if they're trying to do dance poses. all i see is a guy happily checking out his shoulder, a girl doing a fusion of ninja and dancing, and i don't even know what the fuck the tank guy is doing to have that kind of face.

[Quote] Hahaha really? The way you explained your justifications is like saying "I don't know why people are comparing my burgers with McDonald's. Their lettuce is shredded and ours isn't." What I'm saying is you're looking at the comparisons at the microscopic details. The reason everyone seems to suggest they look similar is because both typographic logos are done in a distinct stylization that's similar to each other. There's other script styles out there but what you and Stussy did both look freehanded and very narrow. It could be a coincidence or it couldn't be. Everyone is just pointing it out. Just lettin you know I'm not raggin on you if it seems that way.

kicks/clothing-focused shirts. specifically, anything with pictures of kicks, boasting about kicks/fitted cap/etc are fucking tacky and juvenile. there's that tiny sliver of sweet spot that can determine whether or not it's gonna be dope, but more often than not 90% are pretty shitty ideas. the same with women on shirts. i'm glad they're out there though, because they make an example and i can easily avoid coming up with such shitty ideas.
