Nothing too fancy, snazzy, or sassy here. Just a good, old fashioned, smart monogram by Moving Brands for Augusta Ventures, a “litigation-funding venture that supports those unable to bear the cost of legal fees.” At first glance it may look like an abstract icon, but it’s obviously two “A”s mirrored without their outside legs forming a “V” in the middle.
