A once IT specialist turned lawyer, Micah Johnson began his practice in Charleston, SC in 2012. He counseled businesses on intellectual property protection, startups, technology services agreements, software licensing, contract drafting, cyberspace law, and business transactions. He approached me design a logo that he could market in his coastal community. The conceptual designs varied from illustrations of Internet Technology and pineapples (at clients request), before ultimately deciding on a minimal lighthouse to symbolize his presence on the coast and a guiding beacon for his clients. The logo uses negative space to illustrate the painted stripes of a historically portrayed Charleston lighthouse.
