Any message for the designer?
Attached, please see my old business card. They were simple but sufficient. Clients liked the phrase "Your luck just changed" because that is the way they felt after meeting me.
The other two attachments are 4-leaf clover images, which connect with the luck phrase. My thinking was to work the S in Shnider into the clover. If possible but not necessary, also try to add the L and F of Law Firm as well.
Ultimately, I want my logo/cards to be simple but convey to the client that I am a great attorney and they are confident I will fight for them.
Please let me know if you have any other comments or questions.
If you use fonts that require a license, confirm with the client they're ok with it. For licensing reasons, it is better to provide your client with information on how to acquire the font rather than providing the actual files.
Text in logos should be converted to outlines.
