Art & Inspiration Can someone help make this look cool?

  1. I would like to make a small decal and have an idea but lack the skills to do it justice. No need to keep anything I have if you can do it better? HSHIFT.jpg

  4. You could start by saying, "an anti-theft device" instead of, "a anti-theft device"....

  5. Curve the upper part of the phrase to match the curve of the ball.

    Giving it the color of an old Hurst shift knob that has some years on it would be cool..

    The shift pattern looks too much like a big H
    Make the shift pattern narrower a less obvious.

    That's only going to deter young thieves. You'll still be prey to the old ones. :rolleyes:

    this one has a better look, but still not something I'd put on an old car....it's just too darn modern sounding. And R would probably be up to the left, anyways.

    I wish any one of these designs came on a small t shirt that I could put on the crying baby doll I lean on my car at cruise nights.. That would be cool. Real cool.

    I'm seeing this quite a bit. Is it a new slang, they way people talk in some parts or just poor grammar? I'm not a spelling cop, just curious.

    Its poor grammer , read news and magazine articles , listen to news broadcasters , their collective grammer and spelling is atrocious , public figures are no better , my mother and grandmother were teachers , we were expected to use proper grammer and were swiftly reprimanded if we didn't .......( I still think some people grew up under a rock ).

    I think the early Ford pattern might be an anti-theft device to even a guy who's only driven 4 or 5-speeds.

    The shift pattern Logo is too limiting and off topic.. Makes one think your advertising shifters or transmissions.
    Design a logo that's focused on the anti-theft aspect, not a shift pattern. Avoid Green color as it's not appealing or attention getting. Look at old style speed equipment decals.
    and finally,
    Just say: "Equipped with Anti -Theft Device."
    That way you could use the sticker any where, like on a boat or motorcycle.
