    Morning all. Got this van to do, the customer wants a large photo in the layout, and have sent us a couple of images, this unfortunately is the best one they have and Im at a complete loss what to do with it now. Its a busy image too which doesnt help.

    Any artistry suggestions appreciated.

    You need a better image. It's too damn busy and in this case, a picture is not worth a thousand words...

    We get this all the time.
    No amount of Artistry or programming skills will improve what you been supplied.
    Insist that for in order for their vehicle too look professional you must have a lot higher quality image to base this design on.
    Their is nothing you can do with what is supplied as once you get within 20' of that you will be able to tell it is low quality.
    You could spend days looking for something suitable and believe me they will not want to pay for the time you take.

    Yep yr absolutely right its rubbish example, they even had some sent in from abroad, from manufacturer but they were either too small or an even worse example to use on a van.

    If they put that image on the van, don't count on their message being delivered. I go cross eye'd looking at it.

    I've seen worse, at least the photo kind helps tell what the company does. what would help is to have the copy that says "Rolling/sliding/folding shutters" bigger so that when people see the photo, they see what those things are. as it stands now, the photo doesn't support the message very much as the message is lost in tiny letters
