The Denim (contrast) Thread

Recommended Posts

So I gave feedback to the designer on all the changes I want to see. 

I wish I get to work with more talented designers. But they are just very expensive. Of all the freelance designers, photographers and editors I've worked with over the years, none is any good at what they do. I am never impressed. I see that I see more than them. In other words, my awareness of design is greater than theirs. 

There was only one exception. The video editor who edited my TV commercials. I wonder if there will come a time when all the freelancers I use are on that level, when JT has a budget for design that is 5 figures each time anything gets designed.

On further reflection, wishing for constant and habitual access to such talents is like wishing for the best of everything. It's like wishing to have a retail location where Louis Vuitton is in Bukit Bintang. 

It's unrealistic. I have to make do with much less promising material.

Rosemary vs  Rosemarry (but nevermind). 

Nihon no denim - should be  read right to left ("Nihon no" part should be on the right).

This should be the final design. Did she get the Japanese text right? 

セルベジ (selvedge) 

デニム (denim) 

I might be wrong though on the selvedge in katakana

I asked my supplier of jeans hardware in Tokyo if I had written it correctly. His reply:

Hi,
 セルブィジーデニム ? I don't see this.

セルヴィッジ デニム or
セルビッチ or
セルビッヂ  or セルヴィッジ or セルヴィッチ
etc,

How to write is not fixed in Japan.
I often write this:
セルビッチデニム
