Herrmann recently partnered with the Anne Arundel County Department of Health on a new smoking cessation campaign, using messaging that drove home the importance of quitting by reminding smokers of the priceless life events they may miss if they don’t take action to stop smoking.

Around five years ago, professional services firms started implementing a lot of new design styles and user experience (UX) trends that were, at the time, a big departure from what everyone else was doing.

And yet, so many law firm websites treat their bio pages as an obligatory effort. Awkward yearbook style headshot? Check. Contact information? Check. Professional history and educational pedigree? Check and check. It's not necessarily that this structure is bad, but there is a glaring opportunity missed when clinging tightly to this format.

The graphic, fashion, and interior design worlds rethink color several times every year. While that level of diligence may be excessive for law firms, we sometimes ignore this freedom. The apprehension to considering change often comes at a cost. In a society that is in a constant state of reinvention, it is advantageous for law firms to question long-held beliefs about color and reconsider how it is used in their brand identities.
