Top Three Things to Communicate
#1 - Elegant but must be readable with quick glance or at least identifiable icon.
#2 - Strong, firm, stable feel/look but also subtle and tranquil (zen-like); nothing too flashy.
#3 - Honest and aggressive.
Primarily royal dark blue, gold, and black. Perhaps maroon/red color with wax seal idea (along with blue/gold/black or some combination).
Our Ideas and Additional Information:
No stereotypical legal stuff: gavel, weigh scales, pillars, etc. Connected symbol, icon, or mark is requested along with text of company name with “pllc” smaller. I like the look of 3D “depth” on some logos I’ve seen. Winning designer may be hired for variations based on main design for website concepts, business cards, etc. I like the idea of zen balancing rocks or something like that, but still sophisticated, BUT definitely open to various ideas. NEW IDEA in comments about a wax seal; perhaps the seal impression could use "PBW" and my slogan "Honest and Aggressive" and/or the Latin equivalent "veritas atque infensus" around "PBW" in a circle (one or the other; or both the English and Latin together).
