VN family crest

My grand parent moved to Canada in the 1950's from the Netherlands.  I have symbolized my Dutch heritage with the windmill and tulip wreath.  The wheat and maple leaf are the symbols for Canada and my home province of Alberta.  The latitude and longitude numbers are from the town in Holland my Grandparents moved from and the town in Alberta that they ended up living in for many years.

This is the final crest in grey.

The crest would most likely be used for a family reunion so here are a few colourways on a tee shirt.

Here are a few pictures of the process involved.

The initial sketch

A few ideas I sketched out.

The Windmill

I haven't created too many vectors from scratch so it was fun to sketch it and then create the windmill.

The Crest

The shape with a few ideas for adding depth.

Alberta concept

The provincial crest inspired me to use the wheat part but create my own version.

Tulip wreath

From a picture I created a vector of the tulip and then created the wreath.  This excercise was new for me so it took me a couple trys to get a tulip shape that I liked.

Font

I played around with a few different fonts and weights.

Final crest

I like the crest in blue the best so here it is again.  Thanks for checking this out and your feedback is appreciated.
