Interesting or important topic? Please click "vote topic higher" if you think so.
Just a brief bio about myself im 24. Graduated at uni in 2009 were i studied 3D Animation for 3 years since 2006. And long before I went to uni i was at college for 3 years where i studied Art & Design. So I can fairly say I am a creative kind of person!
Basically ever since i graduated from uni last year i have not found anything degree related jobs around and i've tried but it just really difficult finding one so now I am currently back working at my old job at Mcdonalds.Because I need to pay a lot of rent/bills..etc.
Because Its been a year since i graduated and still don't have a proper job yet that i quite enjoy. So for the past few months I've been thinking on maybe starting my own business instead! And one of the things that i really want to do is to start up my own clothing brand were my niche will be designing T shirts. And i also want to use my name dennis rubio - as the brand name and hopefully maybe someday i can build a unique designed t shirts and sell it.
I have done my research and sort of ready to start producing some tees but the only problem i have is the very lack of funding and i am willing to work hard and do lots of extra shift to fund this venture of mind.
But one thing that I am worried about is i'm not sure if anybody would want to buy a - dennis rubio t shirt because i don't think i am credible enough! :/
I mean do you think i should go for this venture or maybe i'm wasting my time?
But IF i can find enough people to be interested on my designs i think i will be able to put something towards on producing maybe a fair dozen of t shirt to sell and if i do sell one i would save up this money to fund another design.
you can see my brand logo and my first t-shirt design that i want to produce if anyone would be interested?

Hi, nice idea. With this type of business it can succeed in one of two ways. First tactic will be to build a brand using massive amounts of cash. The second is to use incredibly effective and imaginative marketing techniques. Personally, I always go for the latter.
Do you have a marketing plan? Do you have a basic understanding of the areas of business that marketing covers? If your answer to my second question is 'all areas of business' you are half way there.
This does seem like a very interesting opportunity. I would suggest that if your design skills are far superior to your business skills, you may want to look for a business partner who has the skills you maybe dont have. I may be interested in this.
