Thinkso redesigned—and rewrote—a completely new website for the firm. The homepage targets prospective clients and employment candidates, putting the Bernstein Shur differentiators right up front. Our strategy also included structuring the site to aid cross-selling of the firm’s practices by industry, “chunking” page content to make it easier to read and digest, and mimicking the attorneys' straightforward, down-to-earth, plain language style. The website was programmed by Raka in New Hampshire.

An advertising campaign, for which we also handled the media plan and buy, marked the launch of the firm’s new image and voice. The ads introduce a shorthand for the firm name, “Be Shur,” which acts as the punch line to the headlines. Sponsorship and announcement ads, created as templates for in-house production, feature a loose, gestural style of illustration to further contextualize the messaging.

We created a brand spirit book to help communicate the firm’s values to its 100+ lawyers, its staff, and its future hires. The booklet demonstrates the new identity system and editorial approach while articulating exactly what makes Bernstein Shur so special.
