Design Fiction Crest

In a few weeks I’ll be heading to Detroit. I’ve been helping Julian and others prepare a fun little event called ‘To Be Designed’. There’ll be coverage here and at the Near Future Laboratory blog in the coming weeks, but in preparation we’ve been putting together a few bits and bobs to help give the event a little structure. As a part of this, I’ve created the Design Fiction heraldic crest shown above. Why a heraldic crest? Well it represents the activities and tenets of a family, and that seemed appropriate.

Incidentally, this exercise proved Adobe Illustrator to be entirely unsuitable for this sort of work.
