Our logo is very outdated - it definitely needs a refresher.
We want something clean, traditional and sophisticated. I would like to see a graphic element implemented, but we would like to stay away from the legal cliches (scales of justice, gavel, etc.)
I have attached a copy of our current logo, just for reference.
We would like a logo that would work in a more horizontal format, to better integrate on our website header. Currently, we have a placeholder "logo" on our site - please see our homepage here for an idea of the scale we need: http://www.cooverlaw.com
In terms of the icon to be included in the logo, I would love it to somehow represent "trust" - but in an abstract way. I'm sure that's easier said than done. I do not want the cliche hand-shake image, but I like the idea of the icon being symbolic of the trust between an attorney and client. However, I'm open to other options - I just would like there to be some abstract significance to the icon. Sorry if that is confusing...
*** I would like to see a logo that can be adapted to both a horizontal & vertical format. Most of the logos that I have liked in this contest thus far have been horizontal, but I would like to see how the finalists can adapt their submissions to fit a more vertical template, as we have needs for both (but want a cohesive design). ***
