hey guys,

so this has been way too long in the making, but the "people" section has been replaced by http://mintees.com/brands

our goal here is to have the biggest visual directory of t-shirt brands out there. there are still several kinks / features / sorting to be worked out but the core functionality is there.

what rules is once you...


you have the ability to go to any tee page and...


what this means is say miles to go wants to feature a tee designed by paul granese, all MTG would have to do is go to paul's page, view the tee he designed, "claim" it, then assign it to his brand. simple.



so every page gets a few tweaks you can customize...

- 800 px wide X ____ px high header
- background images (w/ alignment options)
- social icons
- custom bio
- 227 x 227 px promo image for the brands section



check out a few brands that have already customized their pages...

http://mintees.com/brands/electriczombie/


http://mintees.com/brands/cxcity/


http://mintees.com/brands/8bitzombie/


http://mintees.com/brands/fullbleed/


http://mintees.com/brands/dreamgold/




also, try to keep your branding strong, these are all great examples of 227 x 227 promo images, if i notice some butt ugly ones i might ask you to change it, gotta keep the standards up!



this is still a work in progress but we are open to suggestions, let us know of any bugs too!

ps. the "people" section still exists, just at the footer of every page http://mintees.com/people

    Working as a charm so far, no complaints !
    I guess I should add more tees now, uh.
  • miles to go

    it all looks super rad. one thing that may be a nice feature to add eventually would be some sort of announcements ability. maybe under the bio, a bar that new announcements could be made for a new release or a sale, etc. a reason to maybe draw traffic onto the mintees page as well. or, if there was a way to link a post in the talk section to the brand page that would just show the headline and link to the thread.

    the brand pages are a great new addition. just trying to think of ways to make them continually relevant beyond a directory.

    yeah this is great.
  • 8-bit ZOMBIE

    Yep, awesome addition! Definitely feels like brands have more of a "home" here now. Everyone's pages are looking great!
  • Cameron Latham

    Great addition! The pages look sweet. I'm not sure if anyone else had/has this issue, but the section wasn't showing up for me at first. I logged out, then back in and it looks fine now.
  • JeremyRichie

    Really cool. Always great to something new around here.
  • artbywesley

    Love it... my two cents, what about adding a comment section to the each brand page. That way you could post news and what not.
  • junostudio

    Very nice update! The pages look great and should work well for all the brands.

    Any way someone can delete my brand page so I can create one on my orcusbrand account?

    Thanks Dobi, Looks like someone has the Orcusbrand name already. I know I never signed up in that name.

    Edit: meh just going to use Orcus.

    This is brilliant! Great idea.
  • SugarCoated

    This is freaking amazing! Great job!
  • Matt Borchert

    Tossing a vote to have it moved next to the tees tab instead of where it is now in the precious talk button location.

    But very cool!
  • rich-priority

    cracking idea, well done all the guys who were involved in this!
  • Alteration

    Good Job Mintees team!

    stupid little issue, but this navigation bit never lines up with the promoted brands icons. second row is always bunched together.
  • Kyle Crawford

    how long before all these goons turn their personal profiles into "brands" just so they can customize it myspace style?

    i'll shoot it down.

    What browser are you seeing that in? Is it consistent or only with a certain combination of promoted brands?
  • Craig Robson

    seems consistent and with Chrome on my imac.

    i couldn't find my brand. MondoBorneo. did someone deleted it? i tried to update it so that only the shirt i'm selling is on it. i just created it today so i'm sure there's problem needs fixing. just let me know so i can re create. thanks!

    i deleted it, it appears you didn't even have a brand as every tee you linked to it was a design for sale, this section is for t-shirt brands, not a portfolio of designs with "text just for placement"
  • anashussain

    i'm sorry for all of that and that's exactly what i'm trying to fix/update.

    I just had a myspace flashback to dudes with gnarly scene hair and their name in br00t4l text on a huge teal and pink header. With a bunch of Attack Attack and We Came As Romans on their player.
