The Media Freedom and Information Access Clinic is sometimes known as the "MFIA Clinic" or just "MFIA." The logo should incorporate some permutation of the clinic's name or abbreviation. For example, it could just include the phrases "Media Freedom" and "Information Access." Or just the clinic's abbreviation: MFIA Clinic, or just MFIA. The logo could also incorporate the words “Yale Law School,” but that is optional.
(Note that the abbreviation is usually pronounced "Mafia" when spoken, but our work has nothing to do with organized crime!)
Given the Clinic's mission, some images the logo could invoke are: sunshine, a sunrise, open windows or doors, or an open lock to represent transparency, a newspaper to represent our media representation, a pen or a megaphone to represent free speech, etc. etc. We are not tied to any one of these images, however, and look forward to seeing what you come up with!
A little more background about is: The MFIA Clinic is part of Yale Law School's Information Society Project and Abrams Institute for Freedom of Expression. You can find the logos of those two organizations here: http://isp.yale.edu/ Our logo does not have to closely follow the design of either of these organizations--in fact, we don't love those logos--but it may nevertheless be helpful to get a sense for the kinds of logos that these and other affiliated groups have adopted. Our logo will appear on that website, on all kinds of promotional material (e.g. newsletters, email, etc.), as well as our own website here: http://isp.yale.edu/media-freedom-a…ess-clinic
