German Cuisine with an Eagle


I mainly looked into hotdogs and eagles. From my mind map Frankfurters/Bratwurst/Hotdogs were one of the main cuisines I thought of as authentic German Cuisine. While Eagles are used a lot in heraldry it seems to have a pretty significant relationship with German heritage.


Mind Map & Sketches

Most all of these include the eagle and some combination of the hotdog. I really liked at the end the thumbnails of the F's crossed and it sort of made the body of an eagle.


Refined Sketch


Beginning to digitize and try out some other ideas

Im pretty happy with the concept but I feel like I have some work ahead to really nail the execution. Im possibly thinking of using the name "Frank's Franks" as it plays off of the wings looking like Fs.

Trying to work out the head a little better also playing with colors a bit more


Finally starting to introduce type in to the design. Also thinking about adding some scallops under the wings as seen in the top right.

Final Version

Working more with the type I chose a different lock-up from my last set of refinements.
