Project description

This is a re-brand for a New Zealand based Law Society that has existed for over 130 years. It is an organisation that over 3000 lawyers belong to, it provides continuing legal education, legal forms and documents for lawyers, real estate agents and other professionals. The "strap line" for the brand: "The independent voice of law". The long copy brand essence is for the organisation is: "We independently represent, educate and support New Zealand's legal profession" There are two name options that need to be applied to the logo are: 1) National Association of Law Inc 2) Institute of Law Inc Institute of Law Inc. is the most preferred name. I have attached the Old Logo for reference. The client do like the crest, but this could be simplified considerably. NB:// Avoid using stylized legal images like caps and gowns. The logo needs to be Clean, Formal & Modern

  • About #4 Hello CH, Here is my design. The concept is based on a torch that represents independence and professionalism. I think this is a clean and formal and i think it can be memorable. Hope you like it. Give me your feedback please. Any changes just ask, Best regards, ricardofmcosta
  • This is looking close. The acronym that the client is using is IoL as opposed to ILI. Is there any chance you could change this to reflect that? Also could you look at some color on the shield?
  • C&C on #14 would be greatly appreciated Thank you, MW
  • I have graded the two current entries that are getting close to the mark. The goal is to have a fresh modern look. I want to avoid the traditional legal imagery i.e. Gavels etc.. I would also like to try and augment the existing crest somehow.

  • Hi CH, in the work #38, #39 I have tried to stand on hind legs and reliability which was felt by your clients throughout more than 130 years, therefore work is executed in classical style, a colour minimum (shades grey and gold) and air maximum. As it at me has turned out, to judge to you. Thanks!
