It should feel like an academy crest, but also feel timeless and represent internationalism. See above design examples for an idea of direction. The final product will be vector art and should include a color and b/w variant. Suggest a 'compass rose' image layered behind an image that represents hot/molten metal or metal casting. Additional image suggestions below. We are open to artist interpretation.
IMPORTANT TO INCLUDE:
Compass rose = global presence and travel. Alternative image(s) can be included at your discretion to represent internationalism.
The molten metal = "forming youth into adults."
If you choose to make a more crest-like image, you MAY ALSO INCLUDE:
cardinal directions (N, S, E, W)
anything related to a map
Colors can include yellows, reds, oranges, golds, tans or grays, and and black.
The words "The Foundry" do NOT have to be included if the image is stronger without typography. But we are also open to artists ideas including the words.
We do not own the sample images, they are provided for inspiration but can not be used directly in the artwork. ***See the third to last for the concept direction of a crest.
Suggest the red compass rose sample below for inclusion or as a core element of your design.
Design should be equally viable in color or black and white.
