The Deaf and Hard of Hearing Bar Association (DHHBA) is thrilled to reveal our new logo.
We also redesigned our website and we hope you’ll take a look at www.deafbar.org.
As we mature as an organization and advance our advocacy efforts on behalf of our members, we wanted to grow our brand and recognition. A new logo cultivates our relationship with our audience, quickly informing everyone of who we are and the values we embody.
In developing our new logo, we wanted to support our talented community. We considered many deaf and hard of hearing graphic designers and ultimately worked with a deaf graphic designer/illustrator with a passion for visual communication: Melinda “Mindy” Schallau (https://www.mschallau.com/about).
As you can see, our new logo represents our support of each other and our advocacy efforts on behalf of all deaf, hard of hearing, late-deafened, and deafblind attorneys, judges, law school graduates, law students, and legal professionals in the United States and Canada. It is balanced with vibrant colors to feature enthusiasm and determination. Of course, it reflects both American Sign Language (ASL) and English and showcases the scales of justice that guide our work.
Our new logo represents our core values, and we hope you agree. Our exciting progress would not have been possible without the resolute leadership of DHHBA Vice President Taye Akinola and DHHBA President Zainab Alkebsi and the hard, great work of the members of the DHHBA Development Committee.
The future of DHHBA is bright and dynamic. Thank you for supporting DHHBA.
