A look at MyLawBC’s emblem

We’re happy to announce that MyLawBC now has an emblem! Our search for an emblem started out in October of last year with a handful of different designs. Since then, we’ve debated here at LSS and taken the designs on the road to get feedback. More than 200 people from across BC weighed in to give us their opinions. We recently took all that feedback, sat down, and decided on the emblem, which you can see below in a few contexts.

It’s important for any website to have a strong visual identity. When someone visits a website for the first time, they should be able to get a sense of what the site is about at a glance. For MyLawBC, that means that we want them to feel that the site is friendly and approachable.

The way people will interact with MyLawBC is different from any other website about the law in Canada, and this emblem reflects that. It’s simple, recognizable, and personal. As you work your way through MyLawBC, you’ll receive a personalized action plan. This emblem reflects the approachable pathways we use to guide you to your action plan. Its design brings to mind the act of highlighting the information that is important specifically to you.

This emblem isn’t the be-all and end-all of the look and feel of the site though. From the video above, you can see that the design of the site is coming together. We look forward to sharing more of it in the future!
