LEGAL ACTION WORLDWIDE
Brand Identity | 2021 | Client: LAW
Brand refresh for Legal Action Worldwide (LAW), an organisation that takes a survivor centred, gender sensitive approach to creative legal strategies in order to improve access to justice and provide legal redress to the most vulnerable in conflict-affected and fragile regions.
LAW wanted to maintain a visual connection to their old branding when updating their identity, but wanted the new branding to better reflect the organisation and what it stands for. After a workshop run by Tayo Kopfer, I gained insight into how they felt about the existing logomark and colours, and what they wanted to see from the branding project. I ended up tweaking their logo and icon (with the help of Danica Ricciardi), Introduced new colours to compliment their blue and red, a new font for variety and created a series of custom illustrations.
LAW needed to use photographs and had a backlog of photos taken over the years, most of them were of very low quality. Taking cues from classic newspaper imagery, I worked with Tayo Kopfer, and we applied a compression technique called “dithering” to all their images, it transformed the low quality images into something nuanced and engaging.
