In terms of style, I have attached two modern FAMILY CREST samples here. I like these because they feel young and modern and fun. I love that. I also love the colors - we love teal! I don't want our family crest to look like an old, traditional family crest. I don't want any shields, swords, arrows or weapons. We want young, modern, fresh, fun, cool...
There are four quadrants for the family crest. Each quadrant has its own image as well as a short description.
Description: Hearing God's Voice
Description: Travel & Adventure
Image: Tree with Fruit
Description: Fruit of the Spirit
Image: Four people climbing a mountain
Description: Dreams & Mission
I have attached screenshots for Stock Images that I like from iStockPhoto. I will buy them once we settle on each image.
Couple things to note:
- In terms of style, The owl image is PERFECT.
- I love the airplane image as well. It's fun.
- I like the tree image... I like that it has roots. But we need to add fruit to that image or find another one with fruit and roots.
- The four people climbing a mountain is a tricky one. I attached some examples here to show the look and style that I like... But we will probably need to create our own image. Note that the mountain stock photo I provided has a bunch of mountains but we only want one mountain. The four mountain climbers should look quite small on the mountain... it is also important that they are not at the top - they are climbing.
The other element on the Poster is our one sentence Family Mission Statement as well as 10 supporting value statements. The copy for this is attached here.
