History

I started to search where my family comes from asking my dad and make some google's researches. I have found something interesting. I already have a family crest, because my old family becomes nobility in 1800. They were from Verona, Italy. The funny thing is that I stayed in Verona since 2012 for my university studies. Here my old family crest.

I've also found that I had my namesake that was an Olimpic boxer champion at Rome's Olimpiadi in 1960.

After I decided to give more space at my noble origin putting up a crown. I have also taken off the Treviso's tower because I put the write 'Treviso' in the white banner below. I choose the laurel with 

Font 

After some graphic corrections, I started to think about fonts. I have tried lots, but the most appropriated for me is Phosphate. it goes very well with the dual track of banner.

After some days...

I've decided to change somethings I didn't like. I wanted to give more evidence to the culture with the graduating hat, and give to my project an American touch, with the America College font. I delete cat, and put an apple and a gym weight, because my family and I take care a lot about food and work out.
