Please do not use symbols typically representative of legal practice (e.g. the scales of justice, a gavel, courthouse depictions, etc.). We are a new firm attempting to break the mould. In design, we prefer subtly over blunt or overt representations.
Our goal is to inspire confidence in our abilities and optimism for a positive result. We are inspired by the following symbols:
- the letter "A" for "Appiah Law";
- chess pieces (such as the knight), because practicing employment law means being strategic;
- the Obama "O" from the 2008 campaign, sunrise, and the Phoenix, because they communicate optimism for the future, and the positivity that change can bring.
These are just ideas for inspiration and do not necessarily need to be incorporated into the design. It should go without saying that the Obama "O" should not be used or emulated. We don't want to get sued for trademark infringement! We no longer would like to see designs incorporating the gryphon.
