Portland, Oregon graphic designer Darrin Crescenzi has created a gorgeous Game of Thrones themed poster design that brings a professional branded look to the series of sigils representing The Houses of Westeros.
After getting sucked into the Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by watching HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” I became intrigued by author George R.R. Martin’s in-depth descriptions of each major character’s heraldry, and the ways in which their symbols seemed to establish a “brand” for each of the story’s families.
I hadn’t seen a designer’s take on the sigils that I was fond of, and thus began a personal mission to craft an icon for each of them. Of course, there’s literally hundreds of sigils mentioned in the texts, so a truly comprehensive collection was tricky and some lesser houses didn’t quite make the cut. Sorry Manderlys of White Harbor.
