I really like the logos across the board. All have some element but the newer designs incorporating industry symbols like hooks, chains and trucks are likely to be in the winners circle. I like number 14 a lot but feel the yellow outside border is going to wash out on the side of a truck. Maybe more defined black or darker border would be better.

Keep up the great work.

Having said that I do like the fact that we are keeping it simple. Getting too elaborate will create difficulties as the logo has to be reproduced for many apps besides just trucks.

Doing a google image search of "tow truck show" will give designers a "feel" for the industry.

I really like all of the designs but the one subtle use of te hook is appealing. I would like to see more designs incorporating symbolism related to towing and recovery, heavy trucking or a hot rod look. Tow companies sponsor shows for Best Truck and the customization of trucks can be extremely elaborate with incredible paint and graphic packages. Our other company actually uses a flaming C as the first mark in the logo.

Welcome and Thank You for Choosing LogoContest.com!

Here are some helpful hints to make sure you get the most out of our site, and your contest.

 

1. Please rank your submissions or post general comments a minimum of 1 time per day while your contest is running. This is required should you want to request an extension to your contest and will produce the best results from our designers.

2. Once your contest receives 40 design concepts, your prize amount will become "Guaranteed".

3. Please make the most out of our messaging and comment systems.

a) Place general comments on this main contest page to give all of the designers your preferences and what you would like to see or not see.

b) Clicking on any designers submssion will bring up a page of all submissions by that designer with an option to post private comments pertaining only to his work. (Only the contest Holder and that designer can view and post to this page)

c) Clicking on the designer username under a submission will allow you to send a completely private message to that specific designer.

4. Please "Eliminate" only those logo designs that you feel have no chance of winning your contest. (Be aware that eliminating everything may discourage participation from the designers.)
