Ante Litem: Before Litigation
Attorney & Law
I want to create a logo and badges for a website called Ante Litem. Ante Litem means "before litigation." It will be a site where users can find a lawyer, rate lawyers, and lawyers can rate each other. The badges will be for: First, "Ante Litem Verified." These are individuals who have sent us a picture of their bar card proving they are a licensed attorney who has no public grievances and are in good standing with the Bar Association. Second, "Ante Litem Top Attorney." This will eventually be awarded to someone who scores a certain number through a peer review process. Only verified Ante Litem attorneys will be able to vote. So having "Top Rated by Peers" or "Top Peer Rated" would be good. Third, "Client's Choice Award." This will be awarded to someone who has a 4.5 or above rating on their public profile. I really like smart logos that incorporate a hidden meaning. The hidden arrow in FedEx is an example. I like the use of negative space. (Just type that into Google image search for examples.) I like clever logos that incorporate a hidden message or something that really bring the idea home.) I would stay away from things that everyone else uses and uses too often - while not a hard and fast rule, things like a gavel, scales of justice etc are overused. Also, it needs to be recognizable eventually and not overly complicated. I think some of the best logos are fairly simple. For example, the big competitors in this space AVVO and Justia have extremely simple logos. A winning logo and seal set will be clever, memorable, and use modern design. The development site is located at http://legaldir.wpengine.com/ Your logo will likely give inspriation to the sites colors.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Logo design starts at $299.

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their logo design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
bensonv collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Pluto is a skilled artist. However, I had to settle for less than what I agreed to because something is lost in translation. For instance, I asked that the layers in the PSD that are fonts be kept as text layers, but I get a rasterized PSD. While Pluto is skilled as an artist, it is hard to communicate to get exactly what you want. If he can overcome this limitation, he will do very well.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
