Creating Your Own Crest Design.
If you don't have a Family Crest or want to start a new tradition then why not consider creating something from scratch.
Many cultures don't subscribe to traditional European ways of preserving history and therefore don't have family crests. This doesn't mean that it's not possible creating something that reflects your family values and history.
A crest usually reflects a few elements such as:
History: Something related to the family history
Geographical Location: Perhaps country of origin.
Occupation: Anything from farmer to blacksmith or a more modern occupation.
Dates: Some crests could even include specific dated of importance.
Values: This could include Family, Trustworthiness, Ambitioun, Entrepreneurship etc
Culture: For example if you're an African then an element reflecting your culture.
WHAT IS A COMBINATION CREST:
We've recently seen a trend where two Family Crests are joined usually through marriage.
We take elements of both family crests and combine them into a brand new coat of arms in many ways signifying a new beginning.
An additional design / consultation fee of R500 will be charged where we assist you in the creation of something completely unique.
