Default Breeze Construction

I had a good chuckle yesterday, wish I would have had a camera with me and thought of our own Breeze here.

I am digging a foundation in a new subdivision, was really enjoying the amazing weather when a construction company pulled into the lot next door, I assumed they were the framing crew. Anyhow they had a cargo trailer, white with amazing lettering, their truck looked great also, I thought to myself that is a very professional setup, I sure hope they are doing well and they must be to have that gear.

At the time I could not quite read the lettering, it was a bit small for the size of the trailer and I was quite a distance away, when I stopped for lunch and headed to the truck I saw "Breeze Construction", anyhow I had lunch with the three guys, we chatted a bit about their work, mine and the economy in General. They were saying they have the same issues we do, fly by night companies doing shotty work for nothing but many developers simply don't care which makes it hard to earn a decent buck. I told them I haven't run into this much in excavation but lawn care, clean up's, pressure washing and a few other services can be tough sells depending on the area. They have the same attitude as I do, stick to the upper middle class area's and you will do well once you are in.

I'll be back at the site tomorrow and will remember to take a picture, he told me the lettering was Air Brush, it really is something to see, various shades of Blue on the white trailer, I told him in my banking days we did a marketing study on the most effective colors to use, Blue was number one as prospects saw this color as a sign of trust.

Anyhow thought I would share that.

That is interesting. So how about Red? I have heard that in the power equipment industry the color red is associated with POWER. Do you know anything yes or no on the color red?

With that in mind, I may have to find a way to integrate the colors red and blue together (or better yet, Red, White, and Blue!).

Which reminds me, recently I was talking to a web guru who said that people associate light colored websites with happy people and dark colored websites with unhappy and dark, secretive people. Just something to think about when designing websites.

Thanks,
Eli

I honestly forget now as it's been so many years, I know Red for banking was a color not to wear or use but I use it in Lawn Care.

Little do we all know but Scott is having the final laugh because none of us have been able to put it together that yes indeed that business is part of his global conglomerate. He has business interests in almost every industry!

(B) will one day own the world!

For those of you who don't know:
Here is Scott's oral hygiene division



Here is his beer division.


And here is his automobile division

Thats interesting considering that Bank of America uses quite a bit of red..... So, I got to wonder, is that one reason they are in trouble?
