I actually decided to do more of an homage to the city where I grew up...Detroit. I wanted to add in elements that I felt represented Detroit to me. I went for the FOOD. I was inspired to by Faygo pop, Better Made chips, and the Coney dog. ;) If you ever get to visit Detroit I urge you to try these delicious treats.
These are some elements that I used for inspiration (all the snacks O.O) and you can see the crests that I also used for inspo.
Elements/Trial and Error
I used the Detroit Pistons colors for my crest.
I ended up making two crest (the second one I was thinking maybe it was more like a sticker). I used the chip bag and coney dog and focal points for my crests and added the year that Detroit was founded. I wanted to use the accent of the E in Detroit to show that it's a French word which actually means strait. The crowns I saw on the glass Faygo bottles and I thought that would be cool for decorative elements (since I was struggling to make a bottle lol). Again, the colors I used are the Detroit Pistons.
