Creating badges and crests is a great way to improve how you combine elements together. Designing detailed crests is a passion amongst many designers and illustrators, and they can be really useful way to show clients your abilities.
For this brief, design a custom crest to represent your family history. You could talk about specific events - or people, or places - and also broader themes; religious, nationality, and so on. Make something you think your family would like to see!
When people think of crests they often think of older, Latin-heavy designs. Really, a crest can include anything you like. Try to generate some imagery or simple illustrations and touches of custom lettering for the design. We recommend sketching lots of small quick thumbnail layouts so that you get a sense of different possibilities; get drawing!
Here is a selection of images by awesome designers to give you some creative fuel! Remember don't copy this directly, use them as inspiration only.
