The full name of the firm is "North Park Bankruptcy & Financial Crisis Law Firm". However, logo should utilize only "NPBK" or in the alternative, "North Park Bankruptcy". The "Financial Crisis Law Firm" portion of the name can be omitted from the logo unless it can be incorporated in a way that isn't too busy. We are looking for something that is minimal overall while at the same time being memorable and unique. We'd like to avoid use of cliche images unless they can be presented in very unique ways. For example; unless the typical law firm "scales of justice" can be utilized in a new and unique way; we'd prefer not to utilize such image in the logo. We'd like to appeal to the more artsy/hipster eye as opposed to the usual conservative cliche logo styles and images you usually see for law firms but at the same time; we'd prefer the overall look to be more slightly more "classic" than "modern"., or in other words; we'd like a minimal and modern take on what could be considered a more classic design. Images and design can be either abstract or may utilize image themes you'd normally envision with a topic such as bankruptcy and debt relief, such as a fresh start; money issues being resolved; light at the end of the tunnel; don't give up hope; etc. It might be preferred that at least some element of the above theme be incorporated, but the extent of that can be up to the designer as well as the level of abstract design they'd like to incorporate.
We will want to use this logo on everything from our website (which is currently http://northparkbankruptcy.com should you wish to see the color scheme currently being used there), business cards, online advertising, print advertising, video, etc.
UPDATE: OK. The key was not well received as a symbol, sorry to be jumping around like this, but give Mr something boxy and miminal and conveying like I have all the answers, I like the BH box designs I've left still there, so something along those lines...and I try to move this to he next level quickly so I'm not wasting anyone's time anymore.
Boxy yet not cliché, looking for a unique take on it that isn't straight from a common logo book. Etc. But it can be nominal overall.
