    I don't care for your typography on the tattoo wrap, or the white halo on the main lettering.
    Your sign could benefit from some negative space.
    The lettering is awful close to the top and sides.
    Love...Jill

    I didnt make the connection that the filmstrip was a portfolio. I saw film strip, and Jack Nicholson and thought video rental place. LOL.

    I am sure it attracts alot of looks.

    Industry sucks here in AZ like most places. Fortunately I am pretty diversified in my product mix. No wraps. Chris from AZ Pro Signs would know the PHX wrap market inside out.... I sent him a couple referrals in the last couple weeks!

    I like the monster car, the rally car, and the counter. No offense, but I hate the tattoo wrap, it looks like stuff was thrown at the car and left where it stuck. I like the idea of the film strip but the pics are dark and don't contrast well on the black car. I'm also hate the "+" signs on the sign, but I guessing that was not your idea. But hey thats JMO.

    been in the industry for a long time....something i learned is that you ONLY have to please the customer! The customer made adjustments on the design and he got what he wanted-thats all that matters.

    I posted some of our work to share with the community, not brag. You only do this work if you love it and thats why i joined the site. If its not your cup of tea....no biggie! but i can care less bout negative opinions because we produce quality work backed with years of integrity.

    So.....in conclusion-thank you for welcoming us and we hope to share more work with all of you in the near future!

    :)

    don't be so defensive the folks on this site can get harsh sometimes but they are right most of the time... be open to critics and learn ... we can all get better. so take the comments and learn.. really look at what your are doing and keep learning.

    Way to welcome a new member. I don't see anywhere that the OP asked for a critique. He just posted some work in the portfolio section. Those of you who dissed it should learn some manners and also post up some of your own work so we can see if you're as hot stuff as you think you are. Shame, shame.

    Anything that's posted is open for critique. If you only want praise, show them to your grandma.
