The branding of the business has been done using one of the oldest forms of identification known: heraldry. After ruminating over the modern tendencies to hire advertising agencies, I decided to consult an agency older than most concepts of branding. The fact such institutions as the Monarchy and the Catholic Church continue to employ these devices as central components of identification should remind all of the importance of these historic agencies in our modern world.
This is the full achievement of my Arms, as granted from the Crown:

Arms (Shield): Gules a fess wavy between three constructs of five hexagons fesswise voided of their fields conjoined in saltire Or.
