Modern Heraldic Design Project
A self-initiated studio design project and work in progress exploring the ancient and traditional format of heraldic design, better known as a family crest.
The Modern Heraldic Design Project is our modern interpretation of heraldic design combining a simple mono colour palette with abstract graphic shapes.
Our modern take on how these would be displayed (as not everyone lives in a castle with a great hall to show their coat of arms) was to create two poster sizes A2 and A1 along with a T-shirt design.
This project has given us the opportunity to explore shape, composition and learn a lot about the origins of surnames and their links with some fascinating historical figures.
