Combining the "F" and tornado might work; might not. I'd dump the "F" and go straight for the tornado (or one of the vegetables).

ok, some rough work with the tornado:

'F' with tornado

I think I like the F by itself best. I may gove a go at a vegetable as well.

So you feel it would be better as a generic shipping trunk? I liked the UPS truck because it makes it clear that it's about shipping, not some other truck related thing.

Any thoughts on the colors, etc?

I didn't know until I zoomed in that the stack on the left side were games. I thought it was for motion of the truck.

Yes, my preference is generic truck.

And now I'd also recommend making it "motion" lines behind the truck. I think that is clearly "shipping".

Also zooming into the letters I think they're too small. You have more room to make them either block letters to the edge or use the stock letters from the wiki.

Here's the direction I would go (though this needs some work now to). I'll leave it at this for whatever you want to do. I'll decide on the final result whether I want to purchase one for myself.

Yeah I feel it's too crowded with the stock letters, but I do like you highlighted letters.

It was an accident at first that the stack of games looked like motion lines, but I deliberately positioned them to keep that impression. I like the idea of alternating light and dark to increase that impression, but I think I want to keep them as a multi colored stack of games.

WRT UPS or not . . I'm a bitn torn. I have to admit though partly I like it just because I'm proud of my little UPS truck.

Thanks for the feedback.

For the record, the correct color for a UPS package car (they're not trucks. They're package cars, according to UPS) is called "Pullman brown." (Hex: #644117) (RGB: 100, 65, 23)

*I used to be a UPS aircraft load supervisor.

yeah the only way to make them easily legible is to make them 5x3 px.

"I buy extra games to get free shipping." or "I use free shipping as an excuse to buy more games."

5x3 letters smaller truck
slanted letters

"I buy extra games to get free shipping", would be my personal choice, either of those phrases works well. The images are much clearer now (for my fading old eyes). I can't choose between the two, both are very nice.

I'll definitely buy one when it's approved.
