Currently thinking of starting a clothing line under the name "DAI LO" which means big boss in chinese. We are trying to aim for the blvck fashion style.
What do you guys think so far? We are thinking of printing out a couple to model for it then start mass printing.
>Hahaha, yeah it is pretty hard coming up with shit : /
You either have it or you don't. It's evident you don't, so stop before you waste any more time and money on this fruitless shtick.
you can start wherever you want. Just because other streetwear companies started out making t shirts doesn't mean you should copy them, if all you do is make graphic tees you won't stand out and never get anywhere. Plus you need to learn to design garments and cut&sew at some point if you want to have an actual clothing line so why not just do it? Either you're cut out for this or you're not
the first design is pretty good, i think if all of the clutter was taken away and it only said "silence is black", and maybe with a smaller (almost breast logo sized) logo just below the neck on the back it would be a good cop if printed on high quality shirt
Too cluttered, but I was never a fan of wearing 2deep4me phrases that don't matter to me at all.
MAYBE if it had a similar print but with different words or a different phrase. Try using phrases from vidya as inspo, might help you figure out other stuff.
A MAN CHOOSES
A SLAVE OBEYS
NO GODS OR KINGS
>what are other dialects
It's in cantonese, not mandarin. You get your shit right.
But really though I think the designs are kind of weeaboo, especially the giant back logo with the katanas and 'death' printed above.Since chinese people didn't use that kind of sword.
just start ripping off stlth/sakevi and you'll be rolling in trust fund cash from crust punks
Yeah I have been just browsing through all the other brand phrases and got caught up with their stupid shit lol. I really liked your examples, definitely going to change it to something else since there are a lot of vidya to check out for good ones.
Thanks!! I actually looked forever for the word, what is the difference between ? and ?? ? Looks a bit cooler lol.
Definitely going to try it out, but I wanted to try and add more design elements to just simple words being on the front. Maybe I will ease it up and make less clutter!
Lose the back print and stick with the front, no text
That shit's ballin, yo.
I'll be 100% honest. From an /fa/ standpoint, this looks incredibly try hard. You are throwing together a bunch of ideas that are not relevant together. It's cluttered and not original. The whole "BlVCK" thing is sooooo played out. It's like putting a Z at the end of words like they did in the 90's. From a designers point of view, this is incredibly cluttered. You have minimalistic design cues, but completely abandon it in other places. It's very inconsistent. Also why do you have random Japanese characters on the design? Yes they can be cool, but when there is a reason behind it.
Sorry to be so blunt, but maybe it'll help you rethink what you are trying to do.
The text, moonrunes and english, are ruining these prints for me. you've got work to do before you're even on par with the thousands of other web stores with kewl printz. once you get there, maybe have some other gimmick that sets you apart.
>PYREX BIG CARTEL IMMA READ IMMA READ
all printed on a fucking fruit of the loom or kirkland shirt, when will this fad fucking end, christ
Would cop if the square was empty. Silence is black is rather cliche. But hey, phrases are interchangeable.
Like the back. Front square prints are always a no no.
The only problem is the back. Katana are too try hard. Would cop otherwise. Even if square print
Honestly, I think everyone here is reacting a little too harshly. I see where you want to go with this, it just needs a bit of refining. I do see it selling well, if the shirts fit right. Plus there would also have to be a entire accompanying clothing line to sell the look you are trying for. Bottoms mostly. Don't let that harsh words of /fa/ sway you from what you want to do.
thanks, the third one was actually designed by my partner, but yes i see where you are getting at with the back on the first design, definitely going to refine it a bit more, was looking for something different but i thought about it too hard i guess haha.
but most likely going to just use the dai lo within the square design and no chinese on the first one just like the "walk free" design.
but thanks bro you're dope as fuck for the advices!
what is de l'eau lol.
? means old. ? means guy (like a male person. It changes meaning when put into compound words like dai lo).
The character is a bit difficult to find since it technically doesn't exist in mandarin and only in spoken cantonese which is now adapted to written form. Literally a made up character.
>Post yfw it dawned on you, that 'Printable area' and 'zoom' aren't part of the design
Holy shit OP, printable area and zoom was the best part of your design
just give up your designs are shit
Thought everyone knew and were pretending to like the designs.
OP all of these designs are autistic as fuck, So many faggots like you have somehow gotten in the mindset of "I can print shit on gildan shirts lol I am fashion designer"
Literally nothing in your designs stands out as any different to the thousands of shirts already available, This project of yours will fail horribly.
Faggot. Pic related, was probably you.
