Up and Coming Brands

[b][Image] "wckdthghts13 said: why are you quiting dude ? dont quit ! why would you quit on something you created, thats like leaving your kid and being a dead beat!! I also have my brand as income and we always get critisized and people always say something is wack or always saying its jocking but its not. Dont listen to what people say !!! you think supreme just got to where they at from quiting ??? I actully learned not to long ago that supreme was actully a weak company back in the day and it just got hot in around 2002 around that time you think shit is just gonna come your way ??? no you have to work for that shit you just dont  all of a sudden be great you have to earn that ! just saying man."[/b] It's not like that my G! I really appreciate all of the advice and I believe it could help a lot of people so I'm posting it again, but it's not like that. Black Magic started on way back by my homie and I joined on, back then it was just making zines and shit, nothing clothing related and it eventually started to pick up a little. My homie had a lot of life stuff to take care of but I continued on with BM and expanded it to clothing and stuff. It was kinda like "well let's see if I can make this actually work". BM's was a huge learning experience learning do's and don't and shit. It was like my practice company for making mistakes and nothing I really invested much in. It got to the point where I quit my job 8 months ago and could survive on just the company and side jobs. But with BM growing bigger and bigger with every release I had to cut it off before I took it too far. Although I loved every second of it, BM was just a tester project, a way to learn and if it happened to crash and burn I wouldn't be a loss. I'm continuing working on projects daily. Designing freelance, photo freelance, and currently opperating a small publication under the name "Counter Culture", but for now I'm taking a break from clothes. I gotta take a step back with everything I learned and build something better with a more structured gameplan. Thank you for the positive words. // [URL]

[Image] Hey guys, I'm back again. Some of you may be familiar with it, but if not this is Black Magic. A project I've been running for a few years and my current source of income. Running this project has been a great learning experience to learn as much as I could hands on through trial and error. BM helped me network and work with a lot of great people, but now it's time I close the doors on this project and move forward on to bigger and better things. Here's two last shirts, one being a reprint of the first shirt I ever made (white on navy pocket tee, blank front) and the final memorial tee (white on black tee, front print only). Along with this is a new zine I put together featuring many people I support, if you're into DIY publications check it out. But yeah, this is the last of Black Magic. I'd like to thank everyone on this forum who supported this, and everyone who criticized me as well to help me grow. Thanks for everything. [URL]

[Quote]I'm just going to throw this out there but Helvetica, black and white, and punk influenced graphics are nothing new and nothing Midnight started. I'm not dissing Midnight, but all of the stylistic elements they use have all been done before. Although this is similar to what Midnight is currently doing, don't play like Midnight isn't taking direct influence from Undercover or Raf Simons who are way bigger and have been doing it for way longer.

[Quote]New stuff looks really nice, this is a better than your last release in my opinion. Looking forward to how the rest unfolds.

I know this place is supposed to be about helping one another build brands through constructive criticism (even though all the feedback you get is hoping for more up-votes than down-votes and if you don't get flamed you're on the right path), so I'll just plug myself too. My brand's store is closing on Sunday night until next season if anyone wanted to check it last minute. Also theres a Black Friday deal going on, the first promotional sale I've ever done and prolly will ever do. I don't see a lot of community or networking going on, but if anyone wants to get in touch or trade shirts, hit me up. Thanks. [URL]   [Image]

Hey guys, Black Magic back again with with a small Autumn release while working on Winter. I heard a couple kids from this thread were feeling the last drop and wanted to be kept updated with future releases so here it is. 3 designs, 2 in 2 different colorways, one being a longsleeve, and them some little extras. Check it out if you're into, if not I'm open to all constructive criticism. Oh, and the store opens tomorrow at 12:00(MST). Thanks! /// [URL]   [Image]

Slightly off topic, but one thing I haven't seen brought up really is wholesale for boutiques and such. I personally plan to continue doing everything by myself, but have had several inquiries about wholesaling my brand. Do any of you guys have experience with doing this? With so many brands picking up lately coming straight from kids without industry experience I feel like everyone could use a little knowledge on the subject.

[Quote]Haven't been to their store but I've seen they're prices and selection. Nothing worth my time tbh. Might as well deal with eBay or Facebook supreme swaps.
