Ohh and before I get the haters who can't be pleased, the customers wanted the "Spencer County" in a nice cursive font and the "Hospice" in a more bold font along with the phone number. They also had to have a nice sized Dove in the sign also.
OK, I won't critque the layout, since you already stated that the fonts and image are set, other than that you're just shuffling things around.
But I will criticize a phone number on a sign like this. Do they think someones going to drive by and say. "Oh look just what I need today, a place to die in peace, I'll pull over and write down the number right now so I can call them later."
I would move the Spencer to the left, and I agree that Hospice looks crowded and stretched. Phone # is probably not necessary but if they insist...whatever. Nice to see what is going on at the other end of the county anyway!
You will get better critiques if you let the wolves attack. It may get ugly but you will get great ideas from some of the most creative people in the biz.
Ok thanks everyone for the pointers and I'm just now getting started in designing signs so I hope I'm on the right track. You guys did make some valid points especially about how Hospice looks crowded. I tried to use a filled dove on the sign but it looked overpowering and overtook the entire sign. Now I originally wanted the phone number not on there, but they insisted. Ohh and to Coloradosigns never once did I say not to critique my work, but I rather not hear negative thoughts from people who CAN'T ever be please and never give good critique on the other layouts that I've seen on this particular forum. Overall I really appreciate everyone for your very helpful constructive criticism.
Signmaniac took your idea, which wasn't too pretty (agrees with every comment here) and made it have a flow and a sense of balance.
Notice how HOSPICE has top priority, and everything else reads smoothly.
