Lol, i totally checked your gender when I saw the first picture.

Like the others have said, i like the idea, i'm just not diggin' the font. Man font is like bold and strong.. This font here gives off a frilly vibe.

What else ya got?

it's cool to come up with your own idea that is different. but since you asked..... i'm not a fan of them, i think the satoshi or black emblems would look better, or maybe a smaller, different design, like the toyota truck emblem for the front may be cool

I appreciate everyones input. I'm just trying to clean up my truck, and do something as a birthday present to myself, as I turned 21 today.

If you guys maybe have ideas for other fonts, I'd gladly look into it and see what theyd look like on the truck. My main goal is to have it be unlike other trucks on the road, specifically the grill emblem. I'll ultimately probably keep the door emblems as are in the pictures. I am quite the opposite of feminine, and it mimics my style and want to stand out as I am, unfortunately, a Ginger. Go figure.

Am looking for any input though, positive or negative. So PLEASE make suggestions as you see fit. Thank you all

The font in your sig doesn't look bad... try that, but without the long extensions to the letters.

I do like the font in my sig, I just don't think that it will have the same look if it is milled. I won't be near my photoshop for a few days, so I won't be able to try to tweak the look of the font. However, the splatter adds a lot of character that I feel would be lost if removed. The idea for having sockmonkey make it into a decal was actually a great one, however I'm wanting the look of it standing out...

It's hard to describe what I'm looking for... which is why I would appreciate it if everyone who reads this thread gives me some ideas... nothing bad has ever turned out of a general brainstorm.

Please? Tacomaworld's b-day present to a young man?

It's a great idea and unique. I don't care for that font, but I've gone through all my fonts in MS Office and can't find one similar that I like.

Happy Birthday, 21st is a good one.

What about something a little retro... Something like the old cartoons. Speed Racer ish.. Maybe something with white and a non-bright red... seeing as you have a white truck the red could help it pop out a little especially against a dark satoshi grill.

Check back in the thread, OP posted a pic like this, it looks a lot better, but still missing something.
