#1 and #2 does not look anything like a 60's surf design. Please look at the website I mentioned in our description for ideas. Thanks

No it doesn't have to be. Look at all the tees and hoodies to get an idea of the type of fonts that I like. It s not just the mollusk tees look at the other brands on the website too.

#3 & #4 are way to literal. It is just way too predictable. Please look at the website I referenced. You should be able to get the vibe of what I am looking for.

#5 and #6 are way to feminine for us.

#7, 8 and 9 look more 70's or 80's then 60's style. Please look at all the tees from www.mollusksurfshop.com and www.thaliasurf.com to see what we are into.

#10 is way too hokey! We are a core surf/skate store. This would be good for a touristy shop but not ours. Thanks.

Really would like to see more logos that have that hand drawn look. I only have 3 that I like but they are still not what I am looking for. I have so many in the non-interesting pile that I wanted to put some in the ranking section. You guys can do it!

Stokaboka... Could you provide some feedback on entries #41 and #42 ? I know where you are coming from with the hand drawn 60s look, I guess the top ranked one doesn't look like what you are asking for to me so it's kind of confusing. By the way, I'm right over in Belmar! Later.

#41 and #42 just look kind of goofy. It looks like the logo for Fresh Prince of Bel Air like it was airbrushed. Belmar is sweet!

A lot of these new one are just a little to cartoony and too feminine. My main customer is a guy 15 - 19. I need something that represents that. Jecrt I would love to see more.

hi there stokaboka, is there any type of fonts you like - do you like the text on the current logos in the top 4 and what do you like about them.
Problem with the t-shirt designs is they are great for images but they don't lend to ideas for text as the only text that I can see on the designs is script fonts or small handwritten text. Can you tell us whether you really would like to see an image along with the wording? Sorry just like to be able to help as would most of the designers here...I'm sure!
cheers
