Creative brief

The buyer added updates to the brief. Read them.

What is the exact name you would like in your logo?

The Danzig Law Firm, at TheLawStores.com - Friendly walk-in law offices

What is your industry?

Legal

What are the top 3 things you would like to communicate through your logo?

We operate walk-in law offices that offer basic legal services (like personal bankruptcy, uncontested divorce, wills, etc.) for reasonable flat fees. Our goal is to help people who either can't afford or choose not to pay higher-priced attorneys for these basic legal services. We are friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the services we offer. The concept is "The Law Stores" -- a place where you can go, receive friendly customer service and pay a flat fee for a set legal procedure.

The top three things are:

(1) The main focus of the logo should be "TheLawStores.com". The other text ("The Danzig Law Firm, at" and "Friendly walk-in law offices") are less important but should be included. People should walk away thinking of us as "The Law Stores", plus with an instinct to visit the website.

(2) Simplicity -- Our law practice is simple -- basic legal services, straight talk, flat fees, inexpensive -- so I hope the logo will reflect that. I'd like three colors only: dark blue (#030754, R3 G7 B84), light blue (#8cabd4, R140, G171 B212), or something close to those two colors, and then white. I think the inclusion of some sort of law related image/design would be nice?

(3) Strength -- Even though we are operating "law stores," we are licensed attorneys and act professionally in everything we do. The logo should be inviting but at the same time exhibit a solid, serious strength that we are a trustworthy and capable operation.

What logo styles do you like (image + text, image only, text only, etc.)

The logo should be very text based but also include a law/legal image or design. I've seen and liked logos with white lettering against darker backgrounds, but that's in no way required -- I look forward to seeing your different types of designs!

Do you have any other info or links you want to share?

I have an existing logo that I did myself -- not very good. I'd be happy to share it if you like, but I really don't want to limit any creativity or new ideas. If you'd like to see it, let me know, thanks.

Brief updates

18-Oct-13 5:20 p.m. GMT
UPDATE: (1) Please no "serif" fonts -- sans or sans serif fonts only (rounded ends), thanks. (2) Please don't put an image with the letters "LS" in the logo -- if you include a small image, something like a gavel, the scales of justice, documents, etc. would work. Just not "LS". Thanks!

UPDATE #2

Hello all, thanks for the great designs! After reviewing everything submitted so far, we've decided that we'd like the logo to have a strong, stamp-like feel to it, likely best accomplished by using a rectangular box (rounded edges?) around the web address TheLawStores.com. You can see our existing logo at www.TheLawStores.com -- it's not great, but it does show the strong, stamp-like, boxy feel we are looking for. (You can also see the logo as an added file here on the CS page.) Thanks!

Hello everybody -- thank you for the excellent submissions so far! I'm sorry not to have given feedback over the past week (we just had our first baby, it's been crazy). I will review and comment on all existing submissions by tonight/tomorrow, and I've extended the deadline one more week (to Nov. 7). Thank you again for all your good work! Best to all.
