Heraldic achievements, ciphers, and coats of arms are often referred to today (at the chagrin of stickler historians!) simply as crests, illustrated monograms, emblems or badges.
The general concept is to build a design with images that are full of personalization and meaning. We can go literal – and include shield-like shapes, motto ribbons, charges, and supporters. Or we can simply embrace the concept of designing artwork with you in mind- instead of mantling we can frame pieces with botanicals. I specialize in custom designs that reflect your passions. We’ll build your design around ideas and images that are near and dear to your heart, event or business.
Your personalized design can become the basis for paper goods – say, a cohesive invitation and announcement suite, personal stationery, or a print to hang in your home. Or, we can explore special production concepts – like printing your design on a pair of high-end slippers!
