I know it's a little play on words. Maybe you would expect it to say "Be Good. Do Well." Which is also a worthy goal, but we decided accomplishment wasn't what we wanted to focus on. Making good decisions, service and kindness are what we are focusing on this year. Maybe next year will be, "Do Good. Do Well."
If you want to dig into the symbolism, the two straight lines crossed stand for truth and righteousness. As an X it stands for exactness. The Circle can mean harmony and inclusiveness. The star stands for aiming for success (Be Good) and the heart stands for love (Do Good).
I also made some for friends and family as a New Years gift (I got a little behind with Christmas gifts and didn't get all I wanted to done!)
The mountain represents overcoming trials and obstacles, setting goals, temples, spirituality. The ribbon stands for quality and achievement. The photo of the forest symbolizes strength in numbers, growing together, withstanding adversity, and integrity.
I've made these available in my Etsy shop. I'll design a custom family crest just for you. When you purchase, you'll receive an instant download with examples, photos, and symbols to choose from. You'll email back your family name and family motto or your choices of symbols and photos. I'll put together your unique hipster family crest and email you a high-res, print-ready 8x10" jpg that you can send to your nearest photo printer (ie. Costco). I'll also send you 612x612 low res file you can post on a blog, Facebook or Instagram.
