Nicholas Fogelson got their new illustration or graphics by running a design contest:
Design a Game of Thrones Crest
Check out Nicholas Fogelson's Illustration or graphics contest…
We are a couple getting married
What's your vision?
Zarya Rubin and Nicholas Fogelson are two people in love. More importantly they are huge Game of Thrones fans, and want a house crest. Z and N are getting married in October 2012 and hope to fly their new house crest at their wedding. They have some specific ideas for the crest, but are excited to look at lots of different designs and be delighted with something they never thought of. The central theme of the crest should be a bunny and a cat facing each other, and the house words "We Do Not Clean". The bunny should be bunny shaped, that being having a fat round body with small head and longer ears. It should look realistic in size and shape, rather than a cartoonish shape a la Bugs Bunnny. The cat should be a typical housecat of lean build. Our primary idea is that they would be nosing up to each other, as two animals first meeting and exploring each other. There should be no aggression or fear in their posture, but rather inquisitiveness or affection. The cat, if colored, should be calico or orange striped type. The colors should be more subtle than overpowering. The bunny should be grey in color. There may or may not be the letters Z and F featured in the crest. If they are featured, the F should clearly be associated with if not on top of the cat, and the Z associated with if not on top of the bunny. The overall design should be simple, a la other crests from Game of Thrones. Many examples are given. This crest will be flown on a flag at the couples wedding, and likely also framed in their house, so use appropriate dimensions for such presentation. The house words should be equal in prominence to the bunny/cat. The specifics are ultimately up to you, as is coloring. We imagine a crest that is of a few colors only, but would love to see full color ideas as well if a talented artist thinks they can do it. Please note that as this will eventually be on a flag, which is large, the final output needs to be either an entirely vector based image or a very high resolution image (300 dpi and 4 feet by 6 feet).
Have fun! You are working on something that may be a part of the family forever, and will be featured at a wonderful wedding.
