SPECIAL PROJECTS

Wake County Bar Association (Small Bar)

At the July 2018 luncheon, Wake County Bar Association honored those gentlemen who celebrated the 50th anniversary of their law licensing in 2017.

Ohio State Bar Association (Medium Bar)

Ohio State Bar Association President Randall Comer feels so strongly about OSBA membership that he stepped into the studio to record some fresh rhymes!

San Diego County Bar Association (Large Bar)

In an effort to streamline and prioritize all of the content that the Bar needed to share, they created a comprehensive Content Management Framework. The Framework guides the Bar's internal team -- defining what content goes where and when, and also with what frequency. The Content Management Framework is a must for a NABE workshop session!

GRAPHIC DESIGN 

Contra Costa County Bar Association (Small Bar)

The flyer was designed to promote a Diversity Networking event. The design of the branding had to be versatile, as the invitation would be printed and mailed to members and various minority bar associations as well as used electronically, on their website, emails and social media.

Indianapolis Bar Association (Medium Bar)

This Bar set themselves the challenge of bundling a half-price membership with their referral service 'Business Building.'A unique headline font, vibrant colors and fun callouts kept the tone of the message light.

San Diego County Bar Association (Large Bar)

Comic-Con International is held in the city of this Bar, so they took this event and created "comic book" graphic designs as a way to promote their Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS). Their advantage -- an in-house graphic designer, with secret amazing graphic powers, who is a self-proclaimed comic book "nerd," created all of the graphics entirely on their own!

PR/MARKETING

Wake County Bar Association (Small Bar)

This Bar holds an annual fundraiser which supports the Legal Aid work, and their 2017 program was cleverly named "Rogue Justice!"


Montgomery Bar Association (Medium Bar)

Similar to the Large Bar winner, this campaign was also aimed at "taking back" their Lawyer Referral Service. Their REALLAWYERS program is a progressive and multifaceted marketing effort, which they are keen to share with other Bars.

San Diego County Bar Association (Large Bar)

This Bar has been using traditional marketing methods for over 60 years. They agreed on a strategic vision of "set the bar higher," and with an aggressive marketing campaign, set out to position themselves as the "go to" place to find a lawyer in their city.

AUTHORED ARTICLES

Wake County Bar Association (Small Bar)

This article highlighted the recent medical struggle of two married attorneys who vulnerably shared their trials and life-changing circumstances and how members of the Bar Association supported them in the aftermath.

American College of Trial Lawyers (Medium Bar)

The article entitled "Roy M. Cohn: My Personal Experiences and Reflections on His Connection to the Forty-Fifth President of the United States" was authored by Stephen G. Schwarz. A relevant and timely article given the current political climate which offers a different perspective on a well-known public figure.

State Bar of Texas (Large Bar)

The article is entitled "Surviving the War Within" where author Victor Flores, an attorney and Iraq war veteran, interviewed a small but diverse group of fellow veterans living with post-traumatic stress and to raise awareness of a fundraising campaign for veterans' legal services.
