A lil background on myself:
My name is Jabari Jenkins. I’m a 22 y/o college kid about to graduate, who is very interested in starting his own yoyo company.
I am a full time freelance graphic designer (I specialize in branding and always looking for work btw so hit me up @barijenkinsdesigns ;), who was born and raised in a small city south of Chico, Ca (Gentry’s Hometown) by the name of Oroville, Ca.
I’m looking to get my design prototyped by one of the local machine shops really soon, but before I did I just wanted to put it out here for you guys to see, with the hopes of one you guys letting me know if it’s too similar to another design, as i’m not trying to bite anyone’s design. I know almost all yoyo’s are similar to one another in some way but still, I don’t wanna be that guy ya know lol.
I would like my company and designs to keep a clean and aesthetically pleasing feel, while also providing stable, familiar, and consistent performance from the throw.
But that’s about it, thank you so much in advance for the help!
Here’s the design:
Gap: 3.3mm (Gonna open that tho)
I was going for an angular and speedy style with the V-Shape design, while giving an illusion of an organic throw while playing, with a “bowled” or concave cup. Anyways, hope y’all enjoy! Let me know what you think.
