Your opinion on truck graphics

I'm working on graphics for my newest truck
It's a 98 chevy 2500. Has the long bed plus a lift gate!

I'll be painting the fender flares soon, but I'm looking for feedback on my graphics ideas - pros and cons?

I like the second one better. Do you have any type of existing logo or are you designing that as you work on your truck graphics?

That is my logo, however it's not completely nailed down. Still in my first year of business. At first I had the whole name written in the logo as it is in the pictures, but later I took it off and just had "KOS"

Still trying to perfect it.

Why do you ask?

If you had something previously established I would just recommend keeping that design consistent with everything you do (Truck, clothing, invoices, ets.) That consistency will secure you with a solid branding for your company.
Try nailing down the logo and keep that consistent while you play around with the layout of your truck lettering

I have a truck I lettered up like that. I regret making it so wordy . I think logo on the door, and phone number ends up looking nice clean not to cluttered. I like the logo!

Think you could post a pic of what you have?

I appreciate the input. I'm definitely looking to avoid busy-ness, but I need to list my services as KOS doesn't at all explain what I do...

I'm not the typical Lawn Care Company because I offer such wide array of services

Don't put all the little writing on there like "lawn care etc"

It looks like clutter, most people can't read it.

You truck message should be:

"company name For All your Landscaping needs CALL XXX-XXXX"

They need to know
1) who you are
2) what you do
and
3) what should they do with this information?

Use the second one, but make your name in black like the first one...take the clutter off the window like I suggested and add in your call to action inbetween your name/logo and the phne number, so it reads like an instructional sentence.

Here is mine, simple, but gets the point across. I think from now on, I'm going to leave my services off on future trucks. I have the same logo on the back glass of my truck and stickers with just my logo and phone number on every piece of equipment I have, including trimmers and blowers (mostly so I know it's mine when I get it back from the shop).

I like the graphics to be clean and simple. On my trucks I just have my logo and my number. It's clean and not cluttered. To me there is a little to much to look at there. Just my opinion.
