First, the logo should be as simple as possible. Law firms generally have just the names of the partners as the logo. But I would like my logo to be just letters "B & B." Simplicity is the main focus here -nothing dramatic or confusing. My goal is that the minute someone sees something made with the logo, whether it is a cup, bag, lapel pin, that person would know it has to do with law. Please see if the logo can be a lapel pin on a suit. One “B” can be red and the other “B” and red to give the logo an American flag look.
Second, here is how I would describe the logo: the law firm will be called "Boies & Boies, LLP." Boies is my and my wife’s last name. The logo itself is just the letters "B and B" for Boies and Boies. Within or inside the letter "B & B" is the lady justice. Somehow, the designer should try to incorporate a lady justice or scale of justice so that anyone can see that the logo by itself has to do with law. Other law related icon photos can be used as well.
Lastly, we would probably need a vector .eps file, which is a scalable file that I will be able to use for almost anything. It can be scaled down for an icon or blown up as big as a billboard without losing any quality. I will need to put the logo on many items include business cards, lapel pin, shirt, coffee mugs, banner …and website.
