Dreem Time Design Contest - Final Entries

The assignment is to design and quote installed vehicle graphics on both sides and the rear of the cube van pictures attached.

For those who like to work at full scale, the sides of the van measure 149" horizontally between the aluminum vertical edges. The rear measures 67.5" horizontally from frame to frame. The sides of the van are made of fiberglass and are rivet free except as shown. The rear door is painted wood and has rivets.

The customer is a psychiatrist who is starting a new business he hopes to franchise. His budget is fairly liberal since this will be the prototype and he wants it to look good and attract business. He has stated that he has no preferences as to design, colors etc. and would like to have a catchy slogan and, perhaps a logo or graphic. In general he is relying on your professional expertise and you have complete freedom to design the concept as you see fit.

The doctor's name is Seymour Dreems. He has a medical degree in psychiatry and has authored a best selling book titled Achieving Success, Finding Inner Tranquility and Losing Weight Through Constructive Dream Creation. The name of the business is Dreem Time Mobile Psychiatry.

The scope of the business to be franchised is mobile psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. Dr. Dreems has offered slogan suggestions like:

Have Couch - Will Travel and Psychiatric Help - We Come to You

as possibilities, but is quite open to new ideas.

Designs are to be posted back to this thread no later than Wednesday December 15th, 2004 along with the price for which you would actually do the job. All designs must be produceable. Beginning Thursday, December 16th a poll will be posted and all registered members may vote for their favorite design. Voting will close at midnight Eastern Standard Time on Thursday, December 30th, 2004.

The winning design will receive their choice of:

Plotter Art™ Originals (Vinyl-ready black and white clipart)
Plotter Art™ Print and Cut Color Collection (Subject to official release sometime in the first quarter of 2005)

In case of a tie, the lowest bidder wins.

Here's My Design...!

I would quote this job for about $700.00 and would offer to discount that $50 for letting me install a 6" x 12" logo of our shop on each side. I used 5 different colors on this job...Vivid Blue, Black, Dk. Charcoal, Mustard Yellow, and Marine Gray(shadows).

From reading the info in the assignment, it's clear that Dr. Dreems, a best selling author is well known. Because of this, I used his face and book on the van as people will know who he is. I added a simple tag line just to let people know that he will come to you. I used the colors from his book jacket for the lettering. I had to use Avery to get these colors. I used A8 Olive Green, camel and orange. (boy, doesn't the good doctor look like my hero Captain Kirk!) I priced it out as gerber edge but would probably use scotchprint due to the size and number of seems. based on Gerber Edge graphics and vinyl letters the van would be $1,113.00 plus $208.00 to install

Here is my idea. I thought I would show my other ideas I didn't pursue and business cards that would go with it, I also did letterhead and envelope but you can get the idea with the card.
With the identity, I am charging a graphic designers average fee based on the information. Included is logo/idenity package for prototype start-up business, the business investment is around 100k, with a possible 120k a year gross with every vehicle.

Logo/Identity: 5000k
Truck: Vinyl 3M HP vinyl, possible paint on the larger color fields: $3250.00

My price for this job would be 1035.00 using Oracal 651 (which 99% of the franchises around here use for everything) or 1250.00 using Arlon HP. My layout fee is 250.00...so 1500.00 plus tax.
