Pop Culture Crests Inspired by Game of Thrones

Brazilian artist Miguel Lokia, better known as Lokiable, has created a series of graphic designs inspired by the hit HBO show Game of Thrones.

Each house sigil is like a family crest intended to symbolize the individual character with a few simple key elements–a minimalist silhouette of an emblematic image and words to live by.

For the raging green giant, Bruce Banner’s The Hulk, we see a prominently green clenched fist accompanied by the words “RAGE TO OUR ENEMIES”; whereas, House Spock features a Vulcan salute, the Star Trek character’s iconic hand gesture, preceded by “LOGIC AND SCIENCE.” Each poster offers its own interpretation of these well-known characters and the artist even adds his own touch of humor to some like House House with the subtitle that reads “NOT LUPUS.”
