    What's not to be sure about? Looks great! Have you presented this idea to the client yet?

    May I ask a question to learn?

    If the bottom is there and you need to do the top would you use the same color/outline combination on the text to give it the appearance of being done at the same time? I mean purely for the customers sake? Naturally the design in the center wouldn't apply to my inquiry.

    In my ignorance it maybe seems "unmatched".

    Why would you put the phone # twice?

    When graduating blends I have much more success framing it with appropriate colors. Using the building as the FRAME I think is not the optimum.
    The bottom windows using type that is not as contrasty bothers me.
    The midpoint of the graduation is different top windows / bottom windows.

    these are just opinions.

    Also, I prefer to adjust the inlaid bitmap for perspective. While this is very close the windows need to be pinched at their tops to correct for picture of building being taken from below the "horizon."

    Use the same ugly combo blend as bottom, the top one looks worse, not to keen on the 2 lines, because you have so much space in between each group of copy.

    I'd use the same blend as bottom sign. Or plain red.
    Put the logo on the left and do the services on one line.
    Use the same font as the old sign but make the letters plain white.
    No need for two phone numbers.
    Love....Jill
