THE SUMMIT is an annual symposium and trade show for progressive attorneys, created by the attorney coaching experts at Atticus, Inc. This premiere event featured an impressive list of keynote speakers, including America’s Got Talent “Golden Buzzer” winner, Mandy Harvey, and the highly accomplished author and life coach, Jeffry S. Life, MD, PhD, FAAFP.

As a brand new event, THE SUMMIT needed complete brand, website, and collateral designed. Colors were easy, as my team and I incorporated the parent company’s palette of bold red with grayscale accents. For the brand as a whole, I wanted something less corporate, but still visually appealing to the primary consumer (attorneys and law firms). To achieve this goal, I played off of the summit concept and themed the brand with mountainscapes.
Designed by Julius Tauzon, the logo features mountain iconography that mirrors an upwards moving graph, indicating the core of the event: to gain knowledge that increases company/attorney growth. It’s clever and fitting, but lacks the stuffy, conservative nature of most attorney related services.
The website and other collateral feature a more dramatic, recurring mountain scene that makes a bold and distinct visual impact. To enhance these visuals, a subtle parallax effect was used on the homepage. The website was developed with a proprietary WordPress theme with Woocommerce integration for ticket and merchandise sales. The company initially used EventBrite for ticket sales, which was costly, and moving ticket sales within the website saved an estimated $60,000 the first year. The website also included features such as social feeds, multi-step forms with conditional logic, downloads, and more.
I also designed a number of digital artwork and collateral items, including physical and downloadable tickets, Instagram packs, trade show banners, and an event program booklet.
Physical, shown below, and downloadable tickets were designed. The downloadable tickets were PDF format with instructions printed below the ticket graphics shows below.
Comprehensive set of Instagram post templates (PSD format) for brand cohesion.
Trade Show Banners
These roll-up trade show banners were designed for the event’s parent company, Atticus Attorney Coaching, and were displayed in the main floor.
Program Booklet (sponsorship divisions)
An ad-heavy printed version of the event program was designed as an additional stream of revenue, and handed out to every attendee upon entrance. Rather than flood the event with industry-related ads, these spots were reserved for local businesses around the venue, which provided attendees with a useful resource for local entertainment and shopping during their stay. Coveted ad spots were available in full, half, and quarter page slots.
