This is what I sent to Daniel. The sailor ships represent his journey to the city and also Manchester City FC has a ship on their crest, so I thought it would be double metaphors. And the Aquila on the sky symbolize Manchester City. Daniel immediately replied me back with very positive feedback, but the color to be NYCFC's team color.
So I changed the color and started working on final.
After I finished it, I sent it to Daniel, and there was few things to revise. (change the eagle to NYCFC's logo, and put a silhouette of Manchester City's Crest.) I can't show the final version before the revision, but I will when I have a chance to.
So this is the final with revision. It has been aired through Kick TV and you can check this.....
Thank you Daniel for great art direction!! Such a wonderful direction!
