Details & Judges Commentary


KC Counselor - Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association (Small Bar)

"Clear, concise publication with lots of good information. Like the use of color and pictures throughout, and the way the magazine is able to highlight multiple members and projects effectively." 

San Francisco Attorney - The Bar Association of San Francisco (Medium Bar)

"Your publication is fresh and creative and accomplishes a lot of what we all strive to do: balance bar information with substantive stories and pieces that showcase your members and your legal community. Nice work overall."

The Pennsylvania Lawyer - Pennsylvania State Bar Association (Large Bar)

"Great use of colors and imagery. Interesting articles and clean layout. Very educational red, with a good inside look at various issues."

"Swearing-in ceremony packets" - Wake County Bar Association (Small Bar)

"An extremely impressive printed piece. What young lawyer is not going to join after being handed this professional beauty? It is really a work of art. I love that they used a focus group. Love the creative strap around the outside of it. Well done!"

Wake County Swearing in Packets

"State of the Judiciary in San Diego County" - San Diego County Bar Association (Medium Bar)

"This project carried out professionally and gives an excellent overview of the situation. But the best part about this entry is that they thought of doing it in the first place. How brilliant and creative to reach out to legislators (and the public) this way to get the bar's message across."

San Diego - State of the Judiciary 


"That's a Fine Idea" - State Bar of Wisconsin (Large Bar)

"I love this idea. The stories are inspiring and compelling - and different from the same-old, same-old. That it was handled in a comprehensive way with not only print, but electronic and social media really worked. Great job!"

"LBA Mobile App" - Louisville Bar Association (Small Bar)

"I was most impressed with the thoughtfulness that went into the app. From including key app features like shareability, calendar additions, registration links, etc. to the event, roster, publications screens, this product clearly was designed with the end-user in mind." 

Louisville Bar app

"For the Record" - San Diego County Bar Association (Medium Bar)

"Great idea to revamp a new attorney area. Nicely done newsletter."

San Diego - For The Record newsletter

"Finish the Ballot" - State Bar of Arizona (Large Bar)

"Did a great job of taking a difficult topic and making it easy to understand. Impressed with the utilization of powtunes and the quality of product produced with little to no budget. Want to steal this idea!"

"Bench-bar & boardroom conference" - Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association (Small Bar)

"I was impressed by the overall theme/brand and the approach to carry it throughout every aspect of the campaign, from the program to social media and from the magazine, to the phone charger."

"The New Bar moving with you" - San Diego County Bar Association (Medium Bar)

"This was an impressive campaign. The overall graphics/branding were innovative, fresh and progressive, providing just the right look and feel to promote their new space. The execution was solid and they are yielding measurable results."

San Diego bar center

"One-time special membership offer" - Pennsylvania Bar Association (Large Bar)

"This successful membership recruitment campaign was well grounded by research and was likely successful because of that. The campaign directly addressed the cost/value equation that non-members had expressed as an issue and showed that an appeal that challenged it could be successful."

WEBSITES - Memphis Bar Association (Small Bar)

"The site looks fantastic! It encompasses all things that you would expect from a new site launched in 2015. The site is built on responsive design and translate so well to different size screens. I was easily able to navigate and click through using my iPhone. Great job!"

Memphis Bar website - Dallas Bar Association (Medium Bar)

"The new, fresh design has certainly added to its usefulness for members and the public. The colors and use of white space are appealing and add to easy navigation. The homepage looks clean, with a good balance of images and text. 

Dallas Bar website - North Carolina Bar Association (Large Bar)

"I love, love, love this website! It's visually so appealing, and the use of graphics is spot on. It is so simple to navigate and the homepage clearly highlights the most important and timely items."
