Hey I have been running my own shop for a few months now. I restore classic cars, Mostly British sports cars, but some American cars too. Im working on a website but I would like to have a logo for the shop. Im good at what I do, but struggle creatively and lack the skills to come up with a professional looking logo. I know there are a lot of people on here that are good at photoshop and graphic design, so If you could help me out it would be greatly appreciated.

I would prefer something realtively simple, but still catches the eye. The name of the shop is OneEleven Auto Works. I like the way it looks spelled out but am open to variations. It doesnt need to have anything to do with british cars, however that is 95% of my business. I work on alot of Austin Healeys, Triumphs, Jaguars, and MG's.
If anyone could spare some time to help me out a bit, I would really appreciate it.

Sounds like a nice business. I'd love to help. I'm good with photoshop and was in design and advertising for many years.

First idea would be a classic chrome car badge logo with "OneEleven" as the main part of the design.

How soon do you need it? I'll send you a pm.

Ohhh I used to drive a 1969 Triumph Spitfire to work everyday, until someone stole it
you could open the door locks and start the ignition with the back of a spoon so I always used to take the rotor arm out, but on that day I forgot

Ive got a 64 spitfire in the shop now, and a 74 TR6. I'll try to post some pics here in a bit, They are big and I dont know how to do the scroll bars things.

It would be fun to see them. I'm toying with the idea of buying a classic again, I've got an mgf at the moment but it's getting to the point where it need some work and I don't know if I can be bothered.
Plus classics are cheap to insure and I don't need to use it for work at the moment because I'm working from home.
I might look for an MGBGT

Tr6 I dont have all of the pics from this project at the moment. Plus I have updated pics on my camera, and its charging now. .This car is basically a full restoration. Everything was removed and refinished. I am fininshing it up at the moment


After paint


64 Spitfire- This one just came in a couple weeks ago. The customer bought it online supposedly in show ready condition. The paint was awful. Its getting stripped and new rocker panels put in, and then body and paint

Here it is today


57 Vette- After paint. I have more pics of this one assembled, but my camera is dead


39 Lassalle- This one is in the paint Booth right now.

Wow I'm jealous!

I always loved the way the rear wheels of the Spitfire would tuck under the car when I took a corner at more the 20mph
It made for some interesting journeys

Haha! I think the rear suspension on those have have pretty cool setup, But i was never sure How effective it really was. I drove a right hand drive(rare in the U.S.) Austin Seven one time, and that was probably the most fun I have ever had in a car.

I had a go at making you a logo by the way.

I don't want to tread on Nerbot's toes though so maybe you could use it somewhere else on your site. Or not at all



I will send you the large version if you want

It Blows me away too. I am in the Louisville, Kentucky area, and there are Healeys everywhere. You dont see em out much, but the sheer number of them in this area would blow your mind.

I Actually worked on a 1950 Xk120 alloy body. The shop that I worked for then went out of business in the middle of the build so it never got done. The owner claims that it is a million dollar car. Im thinking about trying to get that car in here, But Jaguars are an absolute nightmare to work on.

Here's a couple for now. I'll do something a lot simpler in more of a line form for stationary later if you like and something black and white too but I thought a special picture for your web site would be a good start, have a look and tell me what you think.
Colours, sizes, angles, shadows etc can be changed to suit and I can add borders too.

Plain white background:


Nice Red paintwork (can respray the car any colour :-):


Cheers. all comments welcome.

ps. if you need other graphics for the site just let me know.
From one artist to another....them's some purrrdy cars and I'd love to help a worthwhile business like yours :-)

Thats good a font called JaneAusten on a badge from an Austin.

Very appropriate!
