Want some info on how to be successful in this crazy industry? Here it is.

First and foremost, love what you do. Don't do it for the money. If you are doing what you love then money will come after.

Second, do your research. Sure, asking for things over a forum may get you some hookups but when it really comes down to it you need to dig alot deeper than a forum flooded with trolls. If you really want to find a manufacturer for that 'trendsetting' snapback you dream of making, you will find it with enough persistence and effort.

Just making t-shirts isn't enough anymore. People aren't interested in your average t-shirt designs. Its 2012 and business is evolving faster everyday, people nowadays are looking for a lifestyle to follow. Fans what to see material with passion, love and inspiration all packed in. Sorry to inform you though, your lifestyle better be interesting, creative, and REAL.

Be original. Don't copy something thats already been done. Sure, get inspiration from other sources, but make it your OWN. People don't like seeing copies or imitations, they want to see AUTHENTICITY.

Finally. How about instead of talking about all your god damn plans to be the most 'successful brand out there', you start proving that you are the most succesful brand out there. Talk is cheap.

There you go. You should now have a rough blueprint to start achieving your dreams in the fashion industry. Take it or leave it.

in regards to critiques.....

post your designs in forums that match the target audience that you intend to sell to.

coming to other people, that are trying to start a brand also....is not a good place to get advice on designs and logos..ect. All artist have different taste and will always have another way that they would do something.

If you are looking for someone to cosign on your logo.....quit! you may not be skilled in designing logos!
if you are looking for someone to cosign on your tee design...quit! you may not be a good graphic artist!

Im all for helping out, and the sharing of information, but in regards to art and design.....if you give 20 talented artist, the same topic...and tell them to each design a T. you will get 20 completely different tees.

...then ask them to crit each other....

let me add:

#1. starting a brand is a business. Doing what you love is a hobby. Making money (preferably by doing what you love) is a business.

#2. Graphic tees will never die! graphic tees have always been the staple of independent brands. Long after flannel shirts, skinny jeans, snapbacks, and whatever trend is popular now, or was popular for the last 50 years...consumers have, and always will purchase graphic tees.

In terms of doing what you love, which in my case would be 'to create a brand', entails that part of 'achieving' what you love, means incorporating good business. Moreover, if you didn't incorporate the proper business that it takes to be successful as a brand, then you are not achieving and doing what you love. Of course though, this is subjective to myself and others have varied opinions of success/brands/aesthetics/whatever.

Also, I never said graphic tees will die. They never will. I love graphic tees. I believe good brands create TIMELESS clothing that will stay in your closet for years to come. Make authentic, quality stuff that will reflect positivity on your brand and the message you are trying to relay to your audience.

Actually fuck it. Just do you.

The logo


Is it just me or are your mountains(I hope that's what those are) not symmetrical. That makes it look as if you didn't try hard enough. Also, what are the mountains supposed to represent when it comes to creative minds?

I like the name of the brand, but the logo doesn't exemplify it.
Good luck!

Joey
the logo was just a quick design,yes, and the mountains is supposed to represent the barrier that we have overcome to be creative, to be a member of the divisio, but i stil have to work on the letters

The logo


creative minds for a not-so-creative logo. agreed, the mmxi shit is boring and I think people just put it there cause they don't know what else to put, lacking originality.

but i mean theres really nothing fundamentally wrong with it, just my personal opinion.
yes the mmx stuff is very used, but the definition of creative depends on the perspective of mind that sees, i cant see any creative aspect on that flash logo, is to much flash gordon, even though it results on your brand name

I was wondering if anyone would be willing to trade info on a legitimate webstore for alstyle or american apparel tees preferably not too expensive ($6.00 max) that someone has experience working with. I have been searching but can't find any place that is not too expensive and I feel like I would trust with my credit card information. Once again, I have some of my own sources that I would be willing to trade. PM me please.

Alstyle where are you buying from?
If you have a tax Id you can always order from Alstyle for wholesale/cost/resell pricing. But even if you don't you can style create a account with them and order.

those survey questions are so vague. your pretty much asking "why do you buy a tshirt" to all different types of audiences. you should be asking more specific questions if you plan on using those answers to determine your target market or somehow make something out of it.

AA is usually high $5.00 to low $7.00 rango depending on where you go. And AAA should be half the price.
