Need opinions on design

Postby jaymalo_eh » Thu Sep 02, 2004 2:35 pm

I've been asked/volunteered to create a decal layout for a dept in the states, and I would like some opinions or suggestions. I've included 3 versions. Some things to keep in mind:
They would like to go with a two tone paint scheme (Black or Blue with White)
They want to keep the DUI logo that is on the rear door, but it can move to any location
Their uniforms are the standard Blue, with black striping and the patch uses gold piping with a blue background.

Version 1:
All blue, including stripes.
Image

Version 2:
Same layout as version 1, but uses gold and black in the striping. Changed the effect on the word "police" on the door.
Image

Version 3:
Slight change to the layout of the stripes.

Thanks everyone. :D

I wasn't crazy about the police lettering on the second one either, I was trying to match it up to the DUI logo, but wasn't happy with the look. I found it a little cartoonish...I've been leaning towards #3 as well but wanted to get some other opinions. I've also done the 3rd one in a black and white version too.

I like number 3 as well but I like how you punched up the DUI on the Black and White or is it not different at all? Seems to stand out more

Yes it is different, I used a different blending mode on that one, but I wasn't sure if it made it stand out too much though...Having it stand out more though does make the message more obvious...hmmm....

You obviously have skills- my hat is off to you.

#3 in B&W however...

I'd move the DUI to the rear quater pannel and increase the size of the "POLICE" to cover both doors. Looks a little too much like a private security company car for me.

Just my 2 cents.

I do like 3 the best. I would suggest (appologies for the picking of nits) that the yellow stripe that starts at the front, start at the same witdth, not crazy about the fat part at the front....beyond that, superb job!!

I actually think that the blue and white version of number 3 is better. I wish that more police services here in Canada would start using more color on their vehicles rather than just throwing a few stickers on the cruisers.

#3 B&W
