    Designing a clothing brand has to be one of the hardest things to successfully pull-off. If your logo isn’t versatile, unique, or represent your brand enough, then you’re setup for failure from the start. A lot of great info and tips here. Thanks for the great article, Ray! It was a fun read! :)

    Great tips!Though so much easier theory than in practice! A logo is like the clothes you wear your haircut!

      Definitely. Hitting that sweet spot, so that it works with everything is incredibly difficult.

    I’ve been designing since I was sixteen, and drawing as long as I can remember – I’m now 22. About six to eight months ago I became incredibly frustrated with myself, and for the most part, stopped designing or drawing. I found your tumblr and this blog, really digging the work and words of wisdom dude. A lot of respect for what you’re working on, and the fact that you’re sharing with the community your tips and advice. What I really enjoy about your articles is that it applies to people of all walks of life in the design world, anyone can learn a lot. Having come across this, I think I’m going to get back to work on what I’ve dreamt up during my hiatus. Really loving your work dude, it’s original and dope.

    Cheers.

      Damn dude, that really means a lot. I’m actually the same age as you, so it’s cool that I could have such an impact.

      Just never stop drawing and designing. As long as you keep doing something, you’ll always grow and get better. Good luck with all your endeavors!

    AWESOOOOOOOOOOOOOME ADVISE BRO. I’d like to attend FIT, PARSON OR S.C.A.D. For Industrial Design/Product Design & Fashion Design. I’d like to work for Nike & Ralp Lauren. So then I’d be aware of the ends and out for my clothing line.

    I just wanted to thank Ray for all this free, useful & helpful knowledge & advice. For me ( young designer which has started his brand only 2 months ago) this is extremely important, especially with our lack of business experience due to our young age ( im 18 and my associate is 17). The hardest thing for me is to make a transition from creating for fun to making it into a business.

    Very helpful Ray,

    Love the advice man! You’ve inspired to get back to work on my logo after recently settling for just okay. It needs more work!

    Keep up the inspiration. Thanks for sharing!
