    I am looking for wording and design variations for the layout pictured below.
    • What would you like to see for wording (different, or in addition)?
    • What differences in the design would you like to see?
    • What additional designs would you like to have available?

    Looking for any and all input. Thank you for your comments in advance.

    I like the design. If I were to buy it the only thing I'd change is the "Franken Truck" Not sure what I'd change it too though.

    Actually the "built not bought" looks kind of out of place without any lettering on top. If anyone is interested in getting one with no lettering, I would be happy to make some up that way.

    Here are my few cents....

    - The visual "weight" of the axle tubes is too unbalanced with the tires and body above.

    - Since you are going for a 'caricature' effect, why not really exagerrate the swamper tread some more? Swampers aren't so smooth around the edges.

    - Same goes for the truck cab...I see the attempt to get the "skull" designed into it....keep pushing the design harder. Try for some more Chevy-esque styling cues if you can get them in there.

    - Play around more with the location of the cab over the axle cross...I'd like to see it get a little lower and get the logo a bit more compact....


    The idea is a good one. I'm not sure I'd want to see "Frankentruck" on a sticker I bought, since that does sound more like a 'truck name' than a 'philisophy' but you're on the right track. The concept of giving life to something and making it your own creation is cool.

    Keep refining it, and post up the changes as you go. I had quite a bit of formal training in Graphic Design, and as you know I'm also never shy about offering an opinion!!! :laugh:
