What We Do

Pacific Drain is a local San Diego based service company that clears stopped up drains and sewers (think roto-rooter).

Industry

Service Industries

Top Three Things to Communicate

#1 - Professional
#2 - Established
#3 - State of the Art

Our Target Audience:

All homes, businesses, restaurants, apartment buildings, have drains and they all stop up on occassion. Property managers are huge, restaurants have constant problems.

Color Preferences

Blue-"Pacific" was originally chosen simply because we're in San Diego/Pacific Ocean and water is generally depicted as blue.
Red highlights have been used in our past logo, the "P" was enclosed in red, the 2 dots over the i's were red.

Our Ideas and Additional Information:

I just had an idea I'd like to see......try making the "P" on a plunger with the plunger cup as the base. I'm not married to this idea but would like to see how it looks. Pacific Drain is a stand alone division of Arrow Pipeline (www.arrowpipeline.com). If Pacific Darin could cleverly be tied to our Arrow logo it might be interesting but certainly not mandatory. Don't get hung up on this idea.
Company is commonly called Pacific Drain or Pac Drain seldom Pacific Drain Service. I'd like to concentrate on the Pacific Drain knowing I can always add the word Service depending on the media.
Largest visibility will be graphics on side of white trucks. Company has 10-12 trucks on the road.
Our tag line is "We're number 1 at number 2".
Family owned and run since 1975.

guys,

1. keep it one line

2. try a clever way to incorporate an attractive plunger with wooden handle as the letter P. i'm thinking this could work if done well.

3. simple is better

4. blue lettering with red highlights, perhaps red plunger cup with red dots over each letter I?
