Asking for some imputs!!
#1
Hey my friends!... How are you??

Well.. here i am with some totally off topic concerns but i think you may help me and that help is just what i need...

First i´m going to put you guys in my reality ok??... As most of you already know i´m from South America, Uruguay to be exact and i can say i am a car collector guy, just because all my adult life i was trying to improove the way to work on my own cars... my old cars... most of all my mustangs...

I´m one of those guys with less money than ideas so o´ve learned to do things myself in order to achieve my goals of owning a restored classic car... Thay was the way i managed to build my car as the matter of facts...

Well... since years now i was wondering what should i have to try to do this "restoration thing" more professionally and nowadays i´m in front of a this reality:

I have a nice job as designer in a good enterprice but i need a few extra bucks... I do have some time off in my daily living so i could have something else to do to get those extra bucks...

The idea just came up... Why dont i try to do some cosmethics into cars, the cars i love?...

I´m not talking about mounting a restoration shop or become a car painter but maybe i can work in 1 car at a time in several things that in here, noone does... From polishing a car or some interior/detailing things to a body prep or whatever i´m able to do...

Well... believe it or not is a big step for me to decide to "sell" my work in cars... Never did that and i´m sure is not the same as doing thing for myself but to make the story short, i´ve decided to build some kind of naming behind the work i´ve done in my cars...

In order to tell friends i´m available to do some car work or something i can show people in the street when they stopme and ask who did my car, i´ve decided to go for a Logotype...Maybe to print some T-shirts or stickers to attach in my car and to give to my friends, get it??

Well... below i´m showing you both initial scketches and i´m not sure which way, asthetical i should follow...

Well.. this little round one has some things i like a lot... in my opinion is a nice composition of a drawing, fun colours and a retro style that goes very well with my personality and the way i want to work but i´m kinda stuck thinking it is too much for a logotype...
In this i´m trying to be figurative, showing an actual classic car in the logo that reminds me in some way, a 1950´s style... I like that...


   
This other logo is more “modern”… maybe even more intelligent in its contruction and totally vectorial composition… Being black and white make a lot things easier to develop later and maybe it does look more like a logotype itself…. My friends at the office like it because of the suggestion of the classic car draw with the minimum lines required and that stuff… I also like it but I somehow think this is “too modern”… too minimalist for a vintage cars restorarion garage, get it!??

And that is why i need your feedback... which way should i take in the asthetical of this new idea that i have? Tongue

Any feedback is more than welcome guys!!

THANKSSS!!

GO FOR IT!!! Damian. I still to this day pull engines and do engine compartment detaling. Just do yourself a favor and don't underestimate the amount of time you'll spend cleaning and painting. Good luck on your venture.

No Mark!! wait a few extra seconds as the first logo is a little heavier than the second one... If it doesn't open, click on the little link that supposed to be the file Smile

Hey Damián, I like your idea of working on cars on the side and I think it could be really fun. I personally like the second logo because of its pure simplicity and looks a little more professional. The first logo is also cool though. Either one should work out just fine.

Sounds GREAT, Damien!

I think I like the first one better but either one should work very well. I believe you will be very well at just about anything you attempt. The older I get, the more inclined I am to believe that old saying about finding something that you love to do, as a job!

No matter how much you love it, make sure (as Mark stated) that you do not underestimate the price of your Services. The other thing is to make arrangements to ensure everything is done via contracts so there will be fewer problems relative to what is to be done and WHENSmile.

Good Luck!

BT

Do the RIGHT thing.
