Fry International Law
I am a California attorney who has recently been granted a law license to practice as a foreign attorney in Japan. My official title will be "Registered Foreign Attorney." I will be eligible to practice US federal law and California law. I love my job because every day I go to work and have the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of my clients. You may be able to tell that I am passionate about the power of law to bring about positive change. After working as an employee for several years, I'm thrilled to finally be my own boss. Although I'm a terrible artist, I have a great appreciation for aesthetics. I would like my firm logo to be unique and memorable and convey a sense of my new practice.
Potential clients. Main populations served will be US citizens and citizens of East Asian countries especially Japan. US citizen groups will be with residents of California living inside and outside the state. Those living outside CA may be: (1) members of the US military stationed in another state or serving outside the US (2) US citizens living abroad especially in Japan and other East Asian countries. Regardless of clients' nationalities or current residence, they may have questions about California law or US federal law (like immigration and employment/labor). Also, some clients will have Japanese law questions. In those cases, I will work with Japanese co-counsel. The majority of legal work will be in the area of trusts and estates, international family law and mediation. Finally, since my office is in Okinawa, many clients are either in the US military or affiliated with the US government. And, some clients will be in different time zones and countries. We will accommodate these clients with teleconferencing and similar technologies.
++Usage: Business cards, website and other advertising materials.
++Formats: Winning designer to supply zip file containing logo in following formats please: tif, jpg, psd, eps and ai
++Design: logo should be solid whether it is in color or black and white. Ultimate color scheme will be cool palette, sea,sky and plant inspired and could involve one/some of following colors (or ones close by): 004793,00875A,1E5A46,438770,180E87. These colors will be on website. Text based preferred seems to be typical for law firm logos but to me, most seem very boring and fonts usually not original.
++My ideas: incorporate globe into "R" by replacing curved section w/circle. Bookending "Fry" with light outline of left and right halves of globe Placing top half of globe over "Fry" or just using some circular or sphere shape. Please look at design of DisneySea AquaSphere for inspiration:
****I am open to other logos that do not have a globe, you are the expert designer NOT me!
++Please no: scales, blindfolded women wearing togas, colors that stimulate like bright red.
++Feelings to evoke in potential client: TRUST, confidence, security and calm. Clients' attorney search can end when they discover my firm AND they no longer have to worry.
