@jasonseife looks dope, I don't get what everyone is hating on. It matches my brands aesthetic as well, and I received some similar reviews in this thread. Congrats on the Stay Dirty collab, and great work on the Paisley. I have been wanting to release some renisaunce (not spelled correctly) painting shirts as well as Paisley so this is cool to see.

If you ever want to work on something in the future, please let me know.

I have posted in this thread before if you want to go back and look, or you can visit TwinColumn.com to check out my gear. Like I said before, it is a similar aesthetic and I think you would like what you see. Also, idk if you would want to release another collab so soon and so similar, but I've got some bomb ass paisley designs and painting designs we can shoot off each other for something.

Hey whats up , I am new to Hypebeast dot com .
I am currently working on my brands site and "image"
I would love to hear some feed back on what i have so far what you guys think!
Im not gonna put everything i have up because I want the
website release to be all unseen photography.

so here is some basic stuff...

This was a quick shoot i did with my boy Jormen with one of my shirts.

Is there a reason why he's rolling a joint?

new logo, first design that will be used on shirts.

Pretty cool, could be improved. Although in my opinion I think logo's should be simple, but not too simple. It's hard to explain but you need to make a logo that will stick, that will be easy to remember. You need to create a logo that if seen on a sign or any where in the street, it can easily be attributed to your brand. Logo's are very important, as for they stand for your brand and represent it, you don't want something cheesy or ugly cause then people won't even bother looking into your brand. But that's just how I look at it.

Btw I'm one of three founders of Rotten Goods, an upcoming brand on the works. I'm the graphic designer and aid for putting the brand out there. The website has been established but doesn't have any products on it yet. I'm looking for some feedback on it, any criticism is good criticism so critique away. The products are going to be put on the site real soon, so stay awake and don't fall asleep on us!
Check us out on rottengoods.com

Agree with the above, the logo needs to be simple, work in black and white,as a small icon/avatar? Work on embroidery, print? High res/ low res? embossing? (think of if you want to make custom buttons for example? Not necessarily my favorite brands but I think the Evisu Logo/seagull is genius does all of that and more.

Honestly, looks like something I would see on a Hallmark card...
I guess its not a bad aesthetic but its a bit corny to me.

Thanks for you comment ,If its the picture your worried about looking "Hallmarky" it was a really quick shoot, kind of a spur of the moment thing, I was hoping to get feed back on the design and the over all vibe ? Please be professional don't come out and knock my art work or imagery there is a lot of time and hard work that goes into this as you already know, its a learning process. Im am lucky enough to have a fan base of over 2000 followers on twitter and about 1400 on instagram that are willing to buy my artwork . im just the kind of person that wants to make sure everything is perfect before I sell anything or publish anything. so please HELP! give me feedback ...

Thank you.

Learn to take criticism, you asked for feedback and he gave you some. Would you rather be lied to?

Hey man, Just a little advice, as well as having the hyperlink below the promotion, you should also have your website incorporated within the promotion itself.

what's up homie? hand drawn? i appreciate hand drawn stuff so i like what you're trying to go for. just a little advice.. hand drawn images that have lots of curves don't really translate that great online depending on how its presented. it may look amazing on print, but online, sometimes the texture that's meant for the image just doesnt translate well..your image was probably straight exported to .png from ai correct? sometimes i find its nice to mess around with the different contrast/layering to take the colors down just a little bit to make it look more presentable online. heres the same image with a few minute changes, but i think it has a better look on websites when it is posted..

keep drawing homie!

What's a good program to do designs and stuff? And do a majority of you produce your own prints,with your own press or do you use a third party company?

Illustrator, always an upper hand if you can draw.

use a company...

photoshop and illustrator work good.

that's about all the info you'll get here. don't expect people to give out resources quick. we all put in work for this.

if you can draw, use illustrator.... if you cant and just want text and photoshopped pictures, well.... PS works good.

good luck.

@tapresto Just download inkscape. It's simple to use and it has qualities of Adobe programs. When you learn there, switching to AI/PS will be easy.
Nov 27, 2012 @ 00:08
@lowlives damn that ish is 600 bones, damn

Do some research.
It pays for itself in the end, if you know how to use it it will pay for itself
Or you can pay someone else. Either way you'll be coming out of pocket if you don't use the proper resources...

Hey guys, I'm launching a new line around April. Tell me what you think about the brand name and logo (be as harsh as you want).

EDIT: Just got an update from my designer literally a minute ago, minor detail changes but looks a big improvement in my opinion.
