We are a very expansive law-studens association at the most expansive university in our country. We want to differ from the traditional law-students associations at the older universities by being more modern but yet seem professional and reliable.
”Juridiska Föreningen vid Örebro universitet” is Swedish and means ”Law Association at Örebro university”. When we don´t write the full name we use the abbreviation “JF Örebro”
We are interested in both a full version of the logo with the full name "Juridiska Föreningen vid Örebro universitet" and a short version with just our abbrevation "JF Örebro".
We are interested in suggestions with both only uppercase letters and lowercase letters. If lowercase letters are used, the “J”, “F” and “Ö” should be uppercase, but never the “v” in vid and “u” in university (see the full name above).
Text and Typeface:
We are interested in everything that looks stylish and modern, yet professional. Maybe trade gothic? Maybe gotham? We are interested in seeing different suggestions. Maybe a two-font design, with a sans serif for “Juridiska Föreningen” and a serif for “vid Örebro universitet”? Would be nice to see fonts slightly altered (maybe some small tewak here or there) so they differ a bit from the original.
We haven´t yet decided what colors we will use for our new design, so we are interested in different suggestions. As mentioned above, the colors should seem fresh and modern but yet professional.
If symbols are used, they have to be used in a very stylish and neat way.
Since we are a law-students association we might be interested in law-related symbols. Some suggestions on symbols to experiment with are:
-a sectional symbol - §
-maybe something that revolves around the letter Ö
-the stars from the flag of the European Union (might be hard to incorporate in a stylish manner?) What the EU-flag looks like: http://www.topnews.in/files/eu-flag222.jpg
-the scales of justice (must not be used in a generic traditional way)
-a gavel (must not be used in a generic traditional way)
-a law-book (preferably something that looks like the most common Swedish law-book: http://www2.varberg.se/archive/komm…lagbok.gif
-a top of a castle (like the one used in the university logo. look under section “old logotypes and university logotypes” of this brief)
NO SWORD PLEASE
Please refrain from using any stock images or clip art in the logo
Versions and filetypes:
Main logo design is supposed to be in color
-We also need a single-color version for light backgrounds (the single color would preferably be the primary color for the main logo design)
-We also need a version for dark background.
We will require illustrator and EPS copies with both CMYK and RGB.
Old logotypes and university logotype:
If it´s possible you can try to design our new logotype in resemblance of or with inspiration from the logotype for our university. (http://www.oru.se). Of course our logotype cannot be too similar to that logotype, only inspiration is allowed.
Our present (old) logotype can be found here: http://www.jfo.nu
