Collins Heating & Cooling is a growing company based in Highland, Indiana and we’re looking for a new design to go along with our new work vehicles. The vehicles are Oxford White 2017 Ford Transit 250 High Roof. (148” wheel base). Be aware there is a bottom black plastic base that goes across which can not be covered. Also you will see a side bar on the passenger side. This will not take any covering either.
I tend to gravitate towards modern designs that are simple, clean, bold, readable and attractive. I have included some examples of styles we found throughout 99 designs and Google that we thought worked well. I think you will see some commonality among them.
Company name is clear and prominent; colors complement and contrast well and the font choices are nice and readable. We want to be noticed & remembered, we want our trucks to be recognized immediately as Collins Heating & Cooling service vehicles but without being ‘crazy busy’ if that makes sense.
You can work up to a full wrap. Front, side, back, it's a high roof you could use the front face as well.
I do not want any designer to feel forced into a certain style with one exception, I do not want any ‘mascot / character’ type imagery used.
There are a few images & text we would like included in the design.
• Our Flame Brand ** You do NOT need to use the flame brand on the sides of the vehicle.
• BBB Accredited Logo
• Armstrong Air – The Professionals Choice Logo –
• Social Badges: Facebook Icon, Google+ Icon, Yelp
• 24/7 emergency service logo
• Collins Heating & Cooling
• 219 924 7423
• Website: http://www.collinsheatingandcooling.com
Non Mandatory Text Lines – We’re not looking for a bullet point list on the side of the truck. These are just some text lines that if you think make sense some where in your design feel free to you use.

I have attached an asset file which includes some image resources including our flame logo, Armstrong Air, and BBB Accredited logos. While I did include product photos in the asset pack it does not mean you have to use them in your designs.
We only came across a couple designs that we thought used product imagery well, and we included them. We are not opposed to the use; just don't want it to be a 'focal' point if used. I do have some psd files for Armstrong air products that I had to leave out as the file sizes are huge. If you would like them just message me and I’ll throw them up on drop box.
Colors – The one ‘branding’ color we are sure of is NY Giants football team (royal blue) (https://teamcolorcodes.com/new-york…lor-codes/) We would like to see that as one of the colors in the design. We do like to keep some synergy with our flame brand. *However, as I stated earlier, we are open to some touch up work or colorization changes to the flame design if need be. Let us know if you have any ideas for this. Having a great new sharp look is important to us, so please feel free to give us input and ask any questions. I will do my best to communicate with you in a timely manner.
Q: Do you want a full or half wrap design?
A: Feel free to work on a full wrap design. Front, side, back, it's a high roof you could use the front face as well. Whatever fits your vision the best.
Q: Are you looking to keep the trucks mostly white or do you want to vinyl the whole thing?
A: You can feel free to design a full wrap. You can also use the white vehicle color in your designs. We are pretty open to using color so don't feel limited. We're here because we like seeing new ideas. If we think one color is too much or overused we will give you feedback about it.
