Caparas Family Crest

Caparas Family Crest - student project

I plan on adding onto this in time. I'm not super crazy about this crest. My family is not particularly close, and all I could think about was, well... we're Filipino? And... we've lived in Memphis for forever? So it's elements of the Philippines flag with the Memphis bridge.

After I had spent a day putting this together, it didn't quite feel like this is where I wanted to end it. I sketched out some more stuff, and I think I may do something as a tribute to my grandmothers. 

This is essentially my first real project on Illustrator. I really enjoyed this class, but I feel like I didn't execute the project as best as I could.

The shape of the crest is based on a Google image I found just searching "Philippines crest," I believe. Rather than the three stars representing each main island of the Philippines (correct me if I'm wrong, because it's very possible that I am), each star on my crest represents a family member.

I shall return again!
