BRANDING PROOF SET 4, 5, 6 & 7
[Descriptions below are the same as before.]
I don't have the font used in the decal image you emailed over, but this is really close. I customized the larger "DK" so it'd fit, since you can't actually type the "D" and the "K" as shown.
INCORPORATING OTHER BRANDS
I did some research and asked some other professionals for their opinion on this. I'm not comfortable using other brand's logos in your branding. That's not to say that we can't list them as bullet points, or that YOU can't if you choose to; it's your business after all. But I believe that could open you up to cease & desist letters related to copyright issues, etc. if you're not sanctioned/approved/authorized/sponsored by those brands & allowed to be using them in that way.
I hope that makes sense? :)
You picked some great colors & they'll be fun to use, for sure! I think we'll get to see a lot more of that on the website, so don't worry if you're not seeing it much here.
Logos aren't really conducive to using a lot of colors in the same image just because of the nature in which it's being used (lots of different sizes & mediums), but I wanted to show you different options you could play with based on the season or your mood, etc., and did that with the alternate color & layout combos beneath the main logo.
A note about the Metallics: These are difficult to represent realistically, via digital art if I don't have extremely high resolution professional photos to grab from. I've done a good job of reproducing the look of it in small areas, but in larger areas it won't look as realistic. We'll likely have to use these sparingly.
I stuck with similar fonts as the ones you showed me, but differing weights & sizes so there's some variation.
We'll touch on this more when I start work on the website, but we'll have to locate some commercial-use-allowed stock photos that fit your style. There are a lot of great options on Unsplash, and you might find some cheap ones at either Creative Market or Hungry Jpeg. If not, I have a long list of other places we can look. (What I've been using so far has been from Unsplash).
I kept both most recent versions here for comparison:
