vehicle graphics: alvenor aquatics

A regular customer had previously (2 yrs ago) had his van lettered by a well known franchise, then asked them to remove it because it was all directions (they followed all the body lines !!!!).

After 2 years, we finally convinced him we COULD do an astra & make it look right ...... we think we managed it, what's your views ??

I think you made an absolutely fantastic job Sparky.

The use of those curves in the text destroys any chance of the body lines coming into play. (Isn’t that cheating)? :wink:

Looks Great...
I like how the design is it looks balanced each side
sometimes it to easy to forget about details like that...

Excellent job sparky, Nice font, nice angel fish, the telephone number looks a bit lost on it's own though.

Nice job though well done. :D

Well done, excellent work. Your customer should be well pleased with that.

The Astra is so difficult to get looking right but your solution works really well. :D

Fantastic John!!! :cool: - what a right corker...

Beautiful flowing lines and a very traditional feel to the texts.

sure, the phone numbers a little lonely - but who's lookin' at that anyway! :wink:

cheers for sharing.

more soon

Hey very nice job,

Love the way you've done the text and taken into account the two different sides, very eye catching i'm sure it will turn plenty of heads

Thanks all,

Yes the customer was really pleased, the "Bossman" didn't collect it but when his Son & daughter arrived home with it, he made the effort to ring us at home with thanks .... rarity a GOOd customer !!

Agree 100% about the phone number but it had to be prominent & I really wanted to keep it away from the main body of the text /graphics.

points noted for next time ;)
