Re: Another Notch on my Lipstick Case


The yellow tee is sometimes a tough sell. The problem is that it isn't the buttery yellow shown, but a rather brighter, lemony yellow. So, while I'm a fan, most people are not, which means your design has to be ABSOLUTELY FLAMAZING to get the vote. Just a thought.

2nd thought...designing shirts that are gender oriented will usually cut in your voting pool as well. I know a lot of men who are very confident of their sexuality, but I can't imagine a single one of them wanting to wear this design. They might like it, but they're not going to wear it.

I'm not saying to completely change your style to cater to the woot audience, but it's important to understand going in.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Thanks! All good things to know.

This wasn't my only (or even my best) design idea, but, as I'm new to the game, I don't really feel I have the know-how to do justice to my other ideas. (It also doesn't help that I'm doing this all on a laptop touchpad, but my Bamboo tablet is being delivered today. Yay!)
