Our experience:
Specialist marine partnership Nautica Law

Having acted for many years for the partners now comprising Nautica Law, when we got the commission to draw up a totally new identity following a demerger it was a really fantastic challenge.

The end result is a piece of work that combines a maritime aesthetic – an icon that is at once a wave, an ‘N’ and the prow of a ship. Once this new brand had been agreed we offered consultation on office branding for the partitions within the space, and a range of other pieces of work detailed below.

For Nautica Law we created a completely new identity system, following consultation on the naming process:

  • a totally new identity following a demerger
  • an elegant, modern website with video and subtle animation
  • a full set of original team headshots
  • design and printing of new business stationery
  • consultation of office graphics with the team preparing the install

Our experience:
Commercial real estate partnership Freedman+Hilmi

Having spent many years working with investment firms, both specifically financial and also in specialisms such as real estate, it seemed a natural progression to work with law firms.

After an introduction from a long-time client, we were invited to pitch for the corporate branding and website for their lawyers, Freedman+Hilmi.

We have completely re-branded the partnership, designing:

  • their corporate identity after a merger
  • a wide-ranging, editable corporate website
  • headshots of Partners and team members
  • design and printing of company stationery
  • in-house Microsoft Office templates for Word and PowerPoint
  • magazine advertising

Fundamentally, the business is built upon a transparent, service-based approach to client management and this was at the essence of our design approach.

‘Richard Chapman Studio made the process of redesigning our branding and website refreshingly smooth and easy – they’re full of ideas, solutions, efficient and a pleasure to deal with’


Our experience:
Boutique family law firm Miles Preston

After many years with the same classic identity, the partnership at Miles Preston approached us to refresh their look. This is a prestigious practice handling highly sensitive cases, often involving divorce, property and the welfare of children – so our work needed to reflect that.

Our lead visual approach was to propose a photo shoot centred around their offices in the winding backstreets of the old-newspaper district of Fleet Street. We worked with Steve Lancefield, a highly experienced photographer who captured the sense of style and flair that we were keen to bring to this piece of work.

These outstanding images are applied throughout the smart new website which strikes a professional yet accessible tone throughout.

“Thank you to you and the team for all your hard work on the new Miles Preston brand and website.

“Our updated look and design has given us strong, fresh styling very much in keeping with the longstanding thorough, discreet approach the firm has always held true.

“I’m very glad we found you.”


Our experience:
Californian specialist practice Rivera Employment Law

After seeing a series of the financial and legal identity and web design projects we had completed, Californian employment lawyer Kevin Rivera approached us to consider a branding and web design project for his Santa Monica-based practice, Rivera Employment Law.

Our brief was to consider a modern design which stood apart from the large corporate firms in downtown LA and offered a European aesthetic for his business.

The chosen brand is a modern, sleek piece of typography which has informed the design of the website. Employing a brand pattern, Rivera Employment Law’s online presence uses a bold diagonal over photography of different areas of Los Angeles.

Additionally, the design has been programmed with parallax technology meaning that these brand elements float alongside the content, giving a sense of movement and pace to the site.

‘I had a very particular vision for the branding I wanted for my new legal practice and Richard and his team brought that vision to life.

‘In particular I wanted a website that stayed clear of the outdated, clunky images and graphics of so many law firm sites, and that projected a sleek and modern look that is easy to navigate.

‘Richard understood exactly what I had in mind and delivered a project that is visually appealing and sets my practice apart from the rest.’
