The Detroit Shoppe asked the two Senior Studios to design posters representing Detroit. They are located in Somerset and sell Michigan made products and memorabilia. I have a great love for the city and I feel honored to be given this opportunity to create something that I feel passionate about.
I wanted to represent a latin phrase that the city used long ago that I find very powerful to this day:
"SPERAMUS MELIORA; RESURGET CINERIBUS."
"WE HOPE FOR BETTER THINGS; IT SHALL RISE FROM THE ASHES."
The image is of Detroit's supporters lifting the city.
