  • Car Security Label

    I've been asked to knock up a 'jazzier looking' version of the top label. What do people think of my version thus far?

    Overview:
    We need a label that will be attached to the window of commercial vehicles to advertise the fact that they are
    fitted with a 'Slam Lock' from Bellan.

    Job Spec:
    1 x label
    Full Colour
    Must be rectangular
    2 inches x 1 inches - cannot be any larger

    I hate this design so much, but their damned logo and verbiage makes me cringe trying to get it all into a 2" x 1" rectangle. Grrr.

      I like what you have done with #2. It's hard to create something you love when the client places so many restrictions, but it looks good!

        Harcore-restriction clientel are very new to me, so it'll be interesting how they view it. Doesn't help that I only get to do the one proof either ... I mean, c'mon. Give a designer a break ...

          U-
          I definitely dig the color scheme you have going on. As far as your frustrations, keep in mind that the client wants what the clients want. Eventhough what they want 99.9% of the time is utter garbage. Nice work though.

            Thanks G-Man79. I've been very lucky so far that I've had clients leave everything to me ... it really is difficult working like this. I now see why so many people on this forum want to kill so many clients.

              Atleast it is a properly designed logo to where you can shrink it that much, seen many a logos on here that woudlnt even make it to that size

                Is there logo changing to a different color for their branding?

                  No, the logo isn't changing. The reason why my version has the logo looking different, is because I hadn't received the final logo, so I just knocked up a temporary one. It was the trickiest thing to fit everything around though ... any background color other than white just throws either the name or the 'b' character out of balance.

                    You might want to watch your dark green on light green especially going that small, it will be hard to read from a distance the wat it is but even harder when you have the colors like that. IT should be more contrast between the two

                      I think you could be right Envison1 ... even black proved a little awkward, let alone viewing it at 2" x 1". Though print (in my opinion) does allow text a bit more ease of reading over viewing on a digital display, particularly at lower scales.

                        Well, the client loved it. Said it was 'exactly' what they wanted. Well ... that was good enough for me. Already spent the cheque, lol.

                          I'm thinking that may be what he was meaning. For posters I really focus on heirarchy. Grids... not so much. Unless it was maybe a series of posters and I wanted them to look similar.

                          Most grids are for a continuous pleasant group of graphics so as to "belong" together. Most used in magazines and newspapers you can establish a grid for any project. Then subsequent related...

                          As is the case with regard to many types of design decision, right or wrong is really not applicable, but that's not to say one decision won't lead to a better result than another.

                          One way you can work around it (and I always recommend work-arounds as a last step) is to place the PDF into Illustrator. Then go Object>Flatten Transparency and click "Convert All Text To Ou...
