As both a die-hard fan of the popular series The Game of Thrones and a die-hard Graphic design nerd (Oh, and a die-hard fan of Die-hard), I had to post this gorgeous Game of Thrones themed poster design that brings a professional branded look to the series of sigils representing The Houses of Westeros.
Portland, Oregon graphic designer Darrin Crescenzi, who works at Nike, created and recently released a limited edition of 250 hand numbered 18″ × 24″ poster prints with gold foil stamp for sale that have already sold out!
But don’t be distraught, stay tuned for potential future reprints.
As stated by Darrin Crescenzi:
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.
