I want you to design my very own personal coat of arms or crest. It will be a graphic representation of my personality and values and hence forth an important part of my image and personal appearance. The design is required to include two elements:
1. A crest, a design usually including an animal and a number of other symbols, that together represent me. I will use the crest on personal stationary and other printed applications.
2. A shield depicting the crest and the inscription "J. Forsberg, Esq." Bear in mind that I will embroil the shield on my personal clothing, so any design in the crest too complex for embroidery has to be simplified when applied to the shield. See sample pictures of crests embroidered on club blazers.
The symbol you will create for me is not intended to give the notion that I am blue blooded (which I am not), but it is still important to me that I can use this symbol in a serious manner. Hence, I do not want it to look animated/cartoonish, but like "the real deal".
If you want to use and animal in the crest I would suggest a moose (see pictures for inspiration), since it is the most formidable creature in my native Sweden and since I enjoy hunting them.
