Bethlen-Haller Castle Coat of ArmsGraphic Design, Illustration, Painting
Somewhere in central Transylvania, on a solitary hill overlooking the surrounding farmlands and vineyards, there’s a centuries old French Renaissance castle built in 1560 by then Chancellor Bethlen Miklos. Not one hundred years later it was morphed by the sweeping tide of the Baroque style and, over time, each owner left a mark of his own. The Bethlen-Haller Castle, now serves as a special wine tasting space for the Jidvei winery, as well as being the emblem for their company.
A number of original elements are being preserved. One of them is a stone carved with the what is known as the Castle’s coat of arms.
Our team’s assignment was to recreate this emblem and the design of the information panel that sits at the entrance of the Castle.

An oil painting was also commissioned to be exposed in a certain space of the castle which is currently under renovation.
