Working on a new design for women's t-shirts by Teelocker Hong-Kong.
Written with a Chinese ink and Folded pen, some tweaks done in Photoshop.

i think the "ee" and "oc" is a littler hard to read... just my opinion, i might be weird.
@David Kovalev David, it's a calligraphic design and it doesn't have to be clearly readable from the first glance. Thanks for your opinion though.
@Sergey Shapiro ok thats kinda what i figured but thought I'd get educated, not really my field
выглядит артистично, слегка неряшливо на первый взгляд, сразу запоминается как образ (на мой взгляд)
@Sergey Shapiro I think you're an incredibly talented lettering designer (probably top 3 on Dribbble) and I'm a huge fan of your work.
However, I would say that I have to agree with @David Kovalev on the fact that those characters do make it harder to read. I appreciate your stance on calligraphy and how it can be interpretive upon first glance, but I think it's important for any type to be unmistakably readable to properly convey the message and I would imagine that a t-shirt would be a medium that you'd want people to recognize and read rather quickly (especially) on the street or in passing. All that to say that if they can't read it on first glace (and in some cases, second glance) then the brand may be lost to the viewer.
Just giving my opinion on an opinion-centric community of amazing designers. :) All in all, it's still a beautiful piece and I'm sure Teelocker loves the design as well. Great work!
@Ian Mesa Not every type/lettering/calligraphy must be always readable but it just depends on specific goals of every project.
@Sergey Shapiro I'm with ya on that. The words "must" and "art" rarely go together. Thanks for being open to the feedback :)
@Ian Mesa Thank you for the feedback:)
