Project description

We would like to update the look of our family coat of arms.  I have attached the coat of arms we have at present and would really like to improve on it, modernize it, basically, just make it look much better!  You do NOT need to add the family name, we just want the graphic, and in vector format, please.

We are up for any design styles, as long as it's something a little bit cool!  Open to all ideas.

The coat of arms must include:
A two-tailed lion.
The flowers 'forget-me-nots'
Bull horn.

I need to check on the colours, but for now, go with the blue/red/silver... this could change, I will let you know if it does.  

I look forward to working with you all, please don't hesitate to ask questions and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

  • Hi Kristina, could you pls do an intermediate version re the curving of the shield between #48 and #49; meaning not as curved as #48 and not as straight as #49. #48
    • @amayrhofer Hi! Thanks for the feedback. Yes, of course I will make these changes and upload the design for viewing. Sincerely, Kristina.

  • this is your design sir...i think you like it.

    thank you #58
  • I tried to stay as true to the original as I could, with a few minor changes. I made the bull horn stand up a little higher than the original because the ends were a little obstructed and it is important to see them. I also balanced the fiigrees on each side. I also added a cross bar behind the helmet. It gives the filigree a place to come from and helps to transition from the upper portion of the CoA to the lower portion. Thanks #57
  • modern and clean rebranding logo...please give your feedback if you want change #56

    Thanks. #36
  • Hi! I downloaded the revised design, please check and let me know what you think? Sincerely, Kristina. Thanks. #28
  • I actually like the shiel and the lions but the rest is a bit boring re minimalistic. Pls give it a second try. #5
    • @amayrhofer im not sure if you have seen remade versions (#14 - last version after your corrections), coz it was eliminated for some reasons. (#5 is one of first designs made at the start)

  • Hi Kristina, could you try to more or less rebuild the original with your current elements in order to have a comparison? Re the flowers: They should be forget-me-nots so the petals should look slightly different then the ones you use currently. #9
    • @amayrhofer Hi! Thanks for the feedback. I will work on the changes and upload the design for viewing. Sincerely, Kristina.
