Lydia specializes in designing modern-meets-classic, artisan heraldic crests, created just for you, to frame or mail. All pieces are based in spot calligraphy and ink illustration, with typography, long form calligraphy, and watercolor added as desired.
Your crest will include illustrated motifs of importance to you personally, your special event, or your gift recipient. Elements of typical historical heraldic achievements (shields, animal supporters on either side, banners) are often included, or alluded to (think a frame of flowers, in a shield like shape).
Designs are typically commissions to be printed as as holistic a stationery suite, or on larger paper ready for framing. Examples include wedding vows framed with items of importance from the big day, family name crests including pets, thank you cards for a baby shower, or save the dates for an upcoming wedding.
