1/6

Solution

This is a recolored version of my first idea. A simplified rendering of the chrysler building. I split the big shapes that are iconic for the architectural style into the two colors white and blue, contrasting the black and gold that are often used for art deco work. In this version I still wanted to keep the pop art colors, so I made the logo a bright yellow and put some orange on the building.

Describe why you have chosen this place as a visual? What story does your design tell?

When I was young my dad showed me pictures of New York and all the skyscrapers. As a child I couldn't grasp the concept of how huge these buildings were. Same with Artists like Andy Warhol, from whom my dad had a bunch of prints hanging around - as a kid, I didn't like the images. After learning about art deco Style the chrysler building became one of my favorites. So I took the chance to combine 3 things my dad taught me to appreciate: pop-art, New York skyscrapers and the swiss army knife.
