The Wilma Dykeman Legacy was founded in 2012 by her son Jim Stokely, to honor Wilma's extraordinary life.

Law firm logo with Celtic symbol and a screen grab of website home page
January 25, 2023

Legal Services Made Simple.

Irvine Law Firm offers a less expensive and more convenient alternative to the traditional law firm. They bridge the gap between online services like LegalZoom and the conventional path, blending the best qualities from both worlds. We created the logo and identity system for the firm, with this in mind. The solution reflects an affinity for Celtic symbols and a balance that highlights their collaborative approach to law through mediation and resolving legal disputes outside of the courtroom.

The website is designed to blend the feel of the traditional firm and online legal services, and offers a lot of good information to clients and the general public alike. It includes some unique touches like the multicolored fluid-acrylic painting elements created by Stephanie Irvine.

Raising The Bar

NSO (North State Overland) is an off-road adventure brand that designs, engineers, and produces modular rack systems for Toyota trucks. They were interested in applying a full vehicle wrap to one of their trucks, creating mobile signage that can be displayed at trade shows, on the streets, or even out in the wilderness. We were happy to expand on their existing branding with the introduction of a harmonious color palette, identity application style, and illustration featuring Mount Pisgah.
