Dolly Face Appearance Design nearly complete
The design for the Dolly Face is nearly complete. You would think this would be easy, but there are several components to the process that are fairly important.
Of course it needs to look cool, but it also needs to instruct the operator of the dolly intuitively. To do that, the face incorporates three concentric circles, two solid, one dashed. in addition, the two solid circles are thick, so they can represent an additional two diameters. these act as a visual reference point for the individual who is attempting to center that first tire onto the dolly. As every tire professional knows, if the first one isn't straight, the rest of them can only get worse!
In addition, the dolly face includes a very large arrow, intended to point in the direction of travel. The reason this is important is that the caster design allows for very precise steering or guidance using 2 rigid parallel casters, plus 3 swivel casters. Inferior dollies use only 4 casters instead of 5, they all swivel, making momentum difficult to control, or they have 2 rigid, 2 swivel, which also makes the load difficult to control. Since this dolly is round, we incorporated that large arrow to point you in the right direction.
Last, we wanted to include the website, safety info, and of course, the logo. One more step complete as we near the end of the beginning.
