Detroit is known as "The Motor City". Hence the name "Pistons". I used i piston to replace the "I" and tried to make their current logo look a little more "automotive" if that makes any sense?

Basically, I wanted this to look almost like a car logo. The team name and the city they play in is such a good match, and the current logo doesn’t reflect that at all. The text in the logo was heavily influenced by the Heuer logo, which has nothing to do with cars (shit) but I thought it had the feel of an old car logo.
Like I said before I did like the horse in the older Pistons logos, so I wanted to include that. One big inspiration for the horse was the Mobil pegasus logo. I also looked at a lot of Art Deco-style hood ornaments from old cars. these are perfect because they are simple and have a great sense of speed.
