Finally started working on this.

Has this been done before? I feel like it may have been...
What can I do to improve?

anyone?

Matias Corado

I can't get the joke (english is not my native language).

Anyway, I think you can't improve face lines. I like it plain.

vectored_life

Quick correction, it should be "we're" with an apostrophe...as for if the design has been done before, I'm not sure.

Matias Corado

Sorry, I wanted to mean: you can improve face lines.

Thanks!

Yeah this is just a quick rough design, I hate using track pads on laptops, I need to bring my tablet to work!

And I will def. add apostrophe when I redraw it!

Manupix

I don't get it :( What are these dudes?

Manupix

I think I just guessed: glue bottles?

glue. Give me a break! I did this in like two minutes!!!

Manupix

If I give you a break, will you glue yourself back together?

Ok, not familiar with buying glue in bottles around here, is all ;)

I'll probably make the type much smaller than how I started it.

I see this and I read it "We're glue"

So at least to me, it's not working right now. Is including the word "bonding" out of the question?

OH GOOD. That makes more sense. Carry on.

Notto sure about the type

SaltySteveD

Personally I like the type. I have a bit of a dirty mind so the fact that this "gooey, white text" comes off innocently I'd say it works. The only thing I would do would be to add just a bit more detail on the bottles (drawing in ridges on the cap, brighter orange, blue labels?) to really sell the joke. Just me cents!

Type is perfect, I think.

Type is great, would suggest giving it more of a curve over the two, plus shading it so it looks 3D. It definitely looks like it's made of glue, so I love that. I do think that the bottle labels should change... I did immediately get that these were glue (and an awesome pun), but the longer I look the weirder the silver label thing is to me...

Thank you all!

Ill try adding more detail to the bottles and the shadows to the type and Im also not liking the labels much.. Ill work on those!

V4


I think I like the smaller text in the earlier version better... and not completly happy with these labels and the word "glue". IDK

jodabaum
jodabaum profile pic Alumni

so..

vectored_life

I actually like the "glue" labels in v4...I guess technically you don't need them because people will recognize what the bottles are by the lids (at least I did anyways) and also by the "we're bonding" text

I don't however care for the labels in v3 so I'm glad you changed those

jodabaum

Should I take the word "glue" out?

misstissie

aww cute. i like it with "glue" included.

Yeah, I second this

jodabaum
jodabaum profile pic Alumni

OK! Thank you both! :) I guess I'll leave it in... might just adjust/clean up the label a bit.

jodabaum
jodabaum profile pic Alumni

what about the size of the text "we're bonding - larger? smaller? just right? sucks? don't care? potatoes?

vectored_life

my honest answer is potatoes but if I have to lie then i say it looksgood just like it is...size, color, etc...

I hope I'm not too late for this part of the discussion: what does it look like with orange labels and no "glue?"

Just curious.

If you're already set on that, no worries. Looks good! Full speed ahead!

Im not set on anything yet... Ill upload a new version later tnight with some updates and one without the "glue" text.

It's alright, not that clever or amazing but not bad at all; nothing much can be done to improve it beyond what it is now. A solid 5/10 at best (or in other words a 2, MAYBE a 3 on this website).

Ask yourself if you would really wear a shirt that has that on it though. Who would this design appeal to and who would be willing to pay for it? Why would 2 glue bottles be saying "we're bonding" anyway? It's not really much of a joke or pun. I doubt it's been done before and I doubt it will get printed, but you might as well submit it since you already put a bunch of work into it.

jamesnotjim

chill out edward its not as bad as you are making out! I think a few people will like this :)

jamesnotjim

have you mocked this up yet?

jodabaum
