Design The Bacon Family Crest

by | Thu 23 Aug 2018

Designers! We need your help! We want to produce a fun family crest for the Bacon family, something that really reflects us and who we are. This will go on a flag poll at our house and on napkins/coasters for parties.

Hello, Designers!

The Bacon family needs a Family Crest designing. We have a flag poll in our new house,
and we thought it could be fun to have a family crest that reflects us, our personalities,
and background. This will also go on some napkins and coasters for parties.

We want it to be amusing and fun, but also professional and classy. Please make it:

 * Modern and classy. We don't want this to look medieval or old-school. We want it to look
   classy, but contemporary.
 * Amusing, but not cheesy.
 * Either a single-color design, or max of 2 - 3 colors (that contrast really well).
 * This should be hi-res so it can be printed on material with a solid background color.

As you design it, please try to incorporate the following (in priority order):

 * Include the text "The Bacon Family" near the top.
 * Add the latin "Sicut delectamentum cibum prandium." near the bottom (which is latin
  for "Like the delicious breakfast meat" - we say this when we say our name and check in
  hotels, because people always assume our name isn't as ridiculous as "Bacon")
 * The USA, British, and Italian flags in some form.
 * Incorporate key symbols that reflect us:
    - Food/Cooking.
    - Music/Heavy Metal (e.g. a Rhandy Rhoads guitar.)
    - Technology.
    - People/Community (people getting together to do cool things.)

As food for thought, I like these:
