We would like to have our own "single" family crest. After 14 years, we have decided to get married. A none religious, simple & quick, easy (minimal planning), non conventional (not getting married for the purposes of having a family. We know that we truly belong together and after all these years, we still have as much fun & excitement since we met each other), small & intimate (immediate family only, we will do a sailing trip with close friends to deserted islands in a few months). So we thought, since we are merging two families into one, it would be cool to have our own family crest. Our new last name was created by taking "Ketch" from his last name and "errarin" from mine. We are sailers and skiers. We have a 14 year old husky doberman cross, who is 65 pounds, looks like a doberman with relaxed pointy-ish ears, has a blue right eye and a brown left eye. We would like you to include in your logo design a) a stylized sailboat with 2 sails up or just a representation of sails up, b) image or concept to represent downhill skiing. Could be as simple yet stylized pair of crossed skis, c) a representation of our dog. Could be as simple as a graphic representation of a dog. We are thinking of using the family crest on different kinds of media, like pillows, printed on barn wood, made into a scroll, napkins, added on top of our wedding cake, made into thank you notes, maybe even into a tattoo !! Please keep this in mind when designing our family crest.
Thank you for your designs !! We are excited to see what you come up with.
1] We would like the family crest to look like a ski crest, see link as idea: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.co…a02e6c.jpg
2] We would like the symbol in front of the Venetian gondola (boat) but stylized. I'm from Venice.
Here is a link of a stylized one: https://thumb7.shutterstock.com/dis…113101.jpg
Here is a link of what the gondola symbol actually looks like: http://l7.alamy.com/zooms/162750cb0…c27whw.jpg
3] We would also like a scroll at the bottom of the family crest. See link: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.co…1f5dd9.jpg
We've attached images of our dog Diogee under References/ Attachments.
FONT STYLE: found a font style we both like for our last name (in lowercase), here is the link: http://www.fontspace.com/digital-gr…lls-uncial
