There are several factors in copyright law that may affect the design of a new logo for Bridgewater. This is wholey dependant on whether Bridgewater require any copyright to be aquired by me as the designer but I looked into it anyway to add another element to the project that will hopefully impress the client if they have not considered it themselves. I looked at several websites concerning the copyright of logos and artistic works, which logos come under according to the UK Copyright Service. This is part of the research I conducted: michael_hodson_IP
I need to extend this research further if it will be a professional piece of the project and find out how to get a copyright, whether a trademark may be suitable and whether or not this can be added to the costings of the project to give to the client as an option if they want me to handle that part of the project.
