    Great Tim, I think the motto of a signman should be “Patience is a virtue” cos we don’t half needit sometimes ?

    Great looking job Tim, I like the tile effect. Is it printed or all done in vinyl Tim?

    We will be doing the job all in vinyl. I dont like printing jobs like these.

    Another crackin’ design…I like the logo…a lot!

    I believe I might try one of the numbers on the door significantly larger than the other – it might give a little variation in size and width to the door set. The only other thing struck me was – perhaps I’d make the two words ‘Tiling Specialist’ much more dominant within the logo to help get the message across…I know it’s a relatively small photo/mock-up (and yes, the logo is a dream!) but without the benefit or a legible supporting descriptive line, the meaning of it’s geometric lines and diamonds may not be immediately apparent from across the street…

    …having said that, the strip of mosaic type tiles down the side does help a great deal in getting the message across – great use of this feature.

    that’s it…now you hate me (or more likely you’ll just ignore me)… 😆

    bloomin sweet work though mate.

    more soon


    P.S. I did wonder about the need for all those ladders? – it is wall and floor tiles isn’t it?…lol

    Ah the ladders…..

    This is not actually the guys van , His van has a vertical grey stripe in the middle of the panel top to bottom about 10′” wide. And I just couldnt be arsed to mess about in photoshop plus the orignal picture was taken on a wet cloudy day.

    So I used a stock picture of a van we have done in the past.

    He never even noticed! it wasnt his van.
