family heirloom logo

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Yes, that’s a ridiculous song to hear in August. Christmas is MONTHS away. This is true... and it's good news for you. It means there's time to order something cool for the most special people in your life. There's time to order a Family Heirloom Logo

Back in medieval days, a coat of arms represented a family's strength. Citizens could gaze upon the design and gratefully reflect upon the protection they received. It was pure graphic design: a beautiful symbolic representation, a beacon of light, an assurance of quality, a promise of good will, and a stamp of authenticity. At a glance, people would know that they were in good hands. They would know they were safe. 

What does your family stand for? What good are you pouring into the world? What example is your family creating for others? And, what symbol do you have of this hard-won legacy that you can pass like a baton to future generations?

The Family Heirloom Logo is a hand-made, timeless symbol. It's something that you and your family feed and inform with your daily acts of kindness and service. It's something that, over time, will come to be a source of promise, security and connection to those that gaze upon it. It becomes a common thread, a bond between extended family now and into the future. 

Maybe there's another family that has meant the world to you that you'd like to honor with a hand-made gift. This is the perfect opportunity to do something unique and surprising for them.

The Family Heirloom Logo is a custom, personalized, hand-crafted, family logo designed from the ground up. It's hand-drawn, meticulously shaped and spaced in a "Windsor" inspired lettering style. It's then digitized for any modern graphical application.

The Windsor typeface was designed for display purposes in the 19th century. It has an old world appeal, but has enjoyed steady use straight through the 20th century to today. Its warm, charming and full of personality. It has depth without looking intensely era-specific. It's why I'm using it as a reference point for these family logos. Unique characters with close letter spacing visually simulates a family - strength through individuality. 

 

Here's a short list of application ideas for a Family Heirloom Logo:

  • letterhead
  • coffee mugs
  • trucker hats
  • t-shirts
  • website header
  • rubber stamp
  • murals
  • frisbees
  • welcome mat
  • scrapbooks
  • photo albums
  • tattoos

This is the first time I've offered a family logo in a public way. I've created them as gifts but I want to bring something of lasting value to others in a way that fulfills my own legacy. 

After ordering a logo, I'd be happy to consult with you and price out different applications for the logos. I'll help prepare design files too, if you need assistance.

 

What each logo order includes:

  • a vector file of the final artwork (100% scalable)
  • a 5x7" framed, hand-drawn version of the artwork
  • a signed and dated certificate of authenticity
  • a license for unrestricted personal use

These logos have been valued at $1,250.00. For a very limited time I'm offering them at an accessible $350.00. The price will never be as low again and will only increase from here.
