My Process: How I create a custom coat of arms
My Design Process
1: You can send me images, or ideas about the things that are important in your family.
2: I'll present a computer generated sketch for approval after your order or deposit.
3: We can adjust fonts, mottos, colors, and parts of the art.
4: After approval of the computer sketch, I'll draw the piece.
I collect images of old coats of arms and documents on a Pinterest board, as well as pieces of clip art that look interesting. Some clients come to me with an image already in hand. Others come to me with a list of symbols that are important or meaningful to their family. Through collaboration and guess-and-test, they gradually become a story with a theme, details, and their own unique style.
