For this design brief I decided to base my ideas on cities with ancient landmarks. All four structures/landmarks are hundreds if not thousands of years old. These landmarks were once associated with huge empires and ancient civilisations but all still stand today.
I've always wanted visit these cities and see these structures in person. For now, I'll just draw... inspiration from them.
I had originally decided just to design a piece on 'The Parthenon' in Athens, Greece but I had so much fun designing it that I decided to do 3 more cities.
Each Landmark/City has its own style of typography that suits its own culture or city. Also each design includes aspects of culture or design patterns associated with the city.
Ive kept each design down to just 3 colours. I took inspiration from two non related designs ( or are they!?! ) which are the American Dollar and a world famous coffee house's logo ( starts with an 'S' ).
Also because I have a love for football (non related, I know! ) I tried to incorporate these designs in to various types of football crests.
Just to make thing more interesting.
I had a lot of fun with this brief. I think I might even continue doesigning more crests for cities. Really enjoyed it.
Let me know what you think about my designs.
Would really appreciate it. Thanks
