Barristers Logistics is a list of barristers in Melbourne. The List exists to get work for the barristers - it's real aim is to advertise the barristers to solicitors and large law firms (who contact the barristers for court appearance work) and make it easy to find them.
Our list members practise largely in commercial law and we are looking at creating a brand that is modern, clear and confident.
The website will be the flagship to display the brand, and so we need a design that will show that the list contains an elite group of commercial barristers who are modern and equipped to deal with all of the new technological challenges faced in the 21st century. With an emphasis on modern, colours, graphics and images used should be crisp, clean and uncomplicated.
The home page needs to provide an easy way to search for barristers (though they should also be listed on the Profiles page). It should also link to a few other pages - Portal, Barrister Profiles, The Clerk, Practice Areas, Join the List, and Contact.
The Barrister Profiles page should list each member of the list (there are about 20), and each should link to a detailed profile of the barrister with a picture (as in the examples barristers.com.au and brickcourt.co.uk). We don't want thumbnail pictures on the Profiles page.
Other than this, the CONTENT of the existing site does not need to be changed - what we are looking for is a redesign as the existing design has not captured the feel we were after.
Anything overly flashy or tacky, basically anything that detracts from the professional image that the list represents.
