First order of business:  "Per chevron throughout"?  I don't think such is 
possible, but I could be wrong.

Second:  We don't say it the same way as RL heraldry.  So, "of the first" 
being the same as the first color mentioned, I assume you mean "argent".

Third:  I believe (and someone can correct me on this) it's >in base x< and 
not >x in base<.  Same with "in chief".

Now, taking those into account, we compare the two items and we find them to 
be clear of each other for the following reasons:

1.  Griffons gules vs. Griffons Or.
2.  Garb vs two quill pens.

That alone is sufficient to call them clear.

A note:  Since the griffons are of the same color as half the field, one of 
them will probably disappear and create an identifiability issue.
