Methodology: (2) Ideation

Trakai|Hoya|Savoy I|Brittany|Clare|Mann

We try to reproduce the ideation of a crest with the following steps:

a) choose one visual characteristic (see heraldic trace) used in the crest: e.g. tincture, figuration, attitude, etc.;

b) define the language to be used in the analysis (see verbalization): English, Anglo-Norman, Latin, etc.;

c) establish a word or words (see denominant) that might represent the armiger: e.g. territory's name, family name, lineage, demonym, etc. (detailed examples may be seen clicking the square icons at the top right of this page);

d) find a word(s) (see designant) which, by phonetic resemblance with the former, suits the colours and shapes of the crest: you may use transformation, addition, suppression and transposition metaplasms;

e) repeat the procedure until satisfactory results are obtained (you may compare our cyphered results in the available examples, see cypher);

f) verify, whenever feasible, the thematic coherence (see heraldic plot) between the crest and the shield.
