    Hvac Vehicles & Front Window design

    I was wondering how to go about coming up a concept for our work vehicles? I have little to no experience in this department. We live in a very small market area and have one major local competitor and a major competitor from out of town. Let me say that we are a small company. The large out of town business has just gotten a small fleet of trucks with complete wrap around design (way too busy imo) while the second has gotten a custom paint and graphics ( looks pretty good) while we have standard trucks (2). Any pics or ideas on a standout design for a new work truck that looks nice without giving off the image we are trying to compete but more we are trying to stand out and get our name out there?
    Second design question is this...We have a small older office with two HUGE front window bays. What do I put there? On the window and in the large floor raised area(platform) in front of it? Any cardboard models,(where to get) this has me completely baffled! Thanks for any ideas, suggestions and comments!!!

    Do a google search for HVAC companies and look at their trucks to get some ideas.

    Do you already have a logo or branding? I would start with finding a creative graphic artist to help you design something memorable and go from there.

    I would not put any manufacturers name on my truck. Wraps are confusing and can hardly be seen. Also, we all have white trucks, if you can be different do it. Also, each truck has 5 sides to advertise on.

    Your truck should be identifiable from a long way off.

    There is a contractor in St Louis, all of his trucks are painted 1992 Porsche Signal Green. They stand out huge!
