BERNARD family crest

BERNARD family crest - student project

this summer we will have a big family reunion in Angouleme in France. My whole family lives in France, and I am the only one in the states. 

when I saw that project I knew I had to create a family crest for this event.

I asked my aunts and cousins 5-6 specific questions regarding their memories with our grand parents.

we all remembered the same specific items which describe them: my grand-mother's roast beef, my grand-father smoking pipe while listening to classic music,  a few expressions they always used ( like my little goat), their generosity and warmth....

at first I had the family name at the top of the crest, but then when I tried the design on T-shirts, it looked weird to me. I don't feel like walking around with my family name in big on my chest. so I switched it with the little expression my grand-mother loved to use.
