It seems everyone is a little caught up in Game of Thrones these days. Graphic designer Darrin Crescenzi became fascinated with George R.R. Martin’s (the author of the A Song of Ice and Fire series) in-depth descriptions of each character’s heraldry and how their symbols seemed to establish a “brand” for each family. With this in mind, Darrin set out to create an icon for each family and compiled them into this poster titled “Sigils of the Houses of Westeros“. Unfortunately the limited edition posters are all sold out, but we thought that his clean and moden take on the series was too good to not to mention.
Given that the 2012 Olympics are in full-swing it seems like a fitting time to do a round up of all the Olympic-inspired design that has been floating around the internet recently. We hope you enjoy it.
