We are a heating and air conditioning service company. We need a new cohesive, sharp design for our vans. Surfaces included are hood, two doors, two sides and the back. I have a logo already.

We are trying :0) to create a memorable brand for ourselves around our small service area.Â We've recently created a logo, and we have another contest running for a website design.Â Â The van design integrates withÂ both.Â The requirements for the vanÂ are as follows:
We want a design that highlights the company name and contact information (this must be bold and readable!).Â Â
The van body you are designing for is 2007 ChevroletÂ 2500 Express Cargo Van.Â
1.Â Please provide design elementsÂ for: A) HoodÂ (front) B) Passenger front door (area under window only)Â C) Driver's front door (area under window only)Â D) Passenger sideÂ body (which includes two doors that swing open outward withÂ a window in each)Â E) Driver's side body (the largest uninterrupted surface, no windows) F) the back (includes twoÂ windows but youÂ should treat this as a solid mass as we can put the design over the windows)Â
2.Â Use our logo.Â We recently held a logo contest at http://www.99designs.com/contests/5516.Â Please email me for the final files at email@example.com.Â It is okay to enhance the name on logo with outlines, etc if you see fit for readability on van.
3.Â Our logo and contact information must appear on three sides of the van - the drivers side body, the passengers side body and the back.Â Contact information includes James Thomas Heating and Cooling, 888-456-7891 aand http://www.thomasexperts.com.Â
4.Â Somewhere on the van, we must put a Bryant Factory Authorized DealerÂ emblem.Â You can find it at http://www.Bryant.comÂ I can email you one along with our logo.Â Bryant provides this to us in vinyl for sticking on our vans - it measures 9inchesx14inches.Â It is required by Bryant as part of our participation in their program but we service all brands of heating and air conditioning equipment so we want to comply but not shout it.
5.Â Color.Â Use your ideas.Â However, I do not want a designÂ solely using the blues in our logo.Â Â The bluesÂ used alone couldÂ look too much like a pool company.
6.Â We like all kinds of designs (except ones where you cannot read the company name and contact info too well)...please go with your ideas.Â For your reference, there is an HVAC truck design contest conducted each year by an industry magazine.Â You can look at last years winners by going to http://www.hvacrbusiness.com.Â Once on their site, you can type in 'Tops in Trucks' in their website search box.Â Â Last yearsÂ winners and an article about the designsÂ will appear.
In our logo design, we stayed away from hot / cold symbols, snowflakes, icicles, heat waves, flames, etc.Â In the van design you may use them as you see fit.Â I like vans with them and withoutÂ them.Â Also, the leaf in our logo symbolizes our environmental, whole house comfort empahsis.Â Use it as you see fit.
7.Â When posting your design entries, I'd like to see two views - one that shows the back and a side and one that shows the front and the other side.
Good luck and thanks for your interest in my contest.Â
