Laurent Granier’s new website

I had written about this most talented French artist almost 2 years ago, back in January of 2009 and since then, we’ve exchanged emails every now and then while I’ve continued to admire his work on his website.

Just the other day, I received an email from Laurent announcing the relaunch of his website with a brand new design.

The new site, still located at, has completely new look but still feels like the artist. Something difficult to accomplish in a redesign of a website. The flow is smooth and as a visitor, you can easily get to where you want without getting lost.

My favorite section, as expected, is the gallery. Of course, any artist has a gallery section on his website and Laurent Granier’s old site did too, that’s not the new part. What’s new and exciting to any lover of heraldry is that each emblazon has a short paragraph describing the artwork the armiger. The gallery is broken down in to sections for familial arms, ecclesiastical, etc. and the URL to that is:

Finally, another section I would recommend to everyone to visit and read is the section titled “Contemporary use of arms” or “Usages et conseils”. It is a very good and educational read. He’s managed to put together a lot of useful information into a short page that can be easitl and quickly referred to as needed.

For anyone that already is familiar with Laurent Granier’s work, I urge you to visit his new site. If you’re one of the few that are not, then you absolutely must visit the site!
