The 'i' in all the "i DRIVE SAFE" suggestions so far look too much like the "i" in Hyundai's hatch series. Please find a different font / style.

Not a design expert, but some experience in type, typography and layout a few years ago...

Guys, speaking from that background, I would say that nearly all the suggestions have too many words, too much design --- or both. Criticism only, but hopefully constructive.

The message should be as obvious as telling the time from a clock face; one glimpse to "clock" all the important words.

No sentences to read.

No fancy type faces, odd colours or effects, to obscure.


Against those criteria, my vote for best-so-far goes to...

Someone managed to get a seatbelt into their design; that was a nice idea, and adds another valid message.

@ thad, second what you have to say about clutter and keeping it simple and straight. my personal favourite would be a black background and in solid white "drive safe" . Just thought i will let my creativity flow...

quickdraw's design also catches the eye

simple and direct. though my favorites are the ones with the don't talk on the mobile, don't drink and don't over speed symbols. took quite some time to think them up and execute it.

Few from my side. A couple of slogans and the "Drive Alive" logo has been taken from some other website.

Thank you Pranava, I liked some of your designs as well. But like said before I feel it should speak out the message only and nothing else thats why I stuck with that, how do you feel it can be improved?

My contribution.

Help us out with the "Drive Safe" sticker design?-1-copy.jpg

For fellow designers, i found out Defensive Driving: 70 Rules to Live By which would help you in finding out reasonable subjects to make stickers on! Cheers

My second contribution.

Help us out with the "Drive Safe" sticker design?-2-copy.jpg

It would be nice if team-bhp mods could provide the designers with their logo (psd/png format) and the font.

@petrohead - Think twice before you hit the redline??????

Dude, team-bhp has always been about hitting the redline. The idea is not to stop performance driving completely, but to do it in a safer manner.
