Art Mido does great work! He was able to review our initial requests and hit on all of the key features we wanted in a logo design. Any tweaks and revisions were responded to quickly. I am requesting a 1-1 project with him, and will use him in the future if anything is needed. Great quality and overall experience!!

Family Coat of Arms. I have defined a coat of arms for me following the strict heraldic rules. I have one version of it created, but it is way too modern, and hastily done. What I am looking after is the same coat of arms in true medieval spirit, with that awesome old look in it.
The hasty free form translation of the coat of arm description:
"On a black shield, silver cross standing on it's head, shifted to the right (from wearer). Three bird cherry leaves in alternating colors (silver, black, silver). Tilting helmet. Black mantling with inner side silver. Black and silver torse. Black dragon wing crest. Motto at the botton: "Kyllä se siitä".
Two dragons standing on two feer as shield bearers. Left one shy, calm, quiet. Right one bold and loud.
In heraldry the words count more than image. So the description above
should be more guiding than the attached image. The image is just one
interpretation of the official written coat of arms description - but
it's a good help. Attached is also image of the words in capital
letters - notice couple scandinavian a-letters with dots over them.
The values can be in the same scroll, separated by &-sign. Motto in
the bottom. The cross standing on it's head is forming a letter L -
first letter of the family name. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crest_(heraldry). (edit: Added also nice
looking examples of colored coat of arms)
