Label Designs for Award Winning Meat Rubs

Posted on April 11, 2022

Visual Lure recently helped redesign labels for King Louie’s Meat Apostles, a St. Louis area award-winning seasoning company with meat rubs for almost every protein – including some for vegetables.


Before:

Their previous labels did not look or feel like award-winning rubs. The fonts used felt inappropriate, and the craftsmanship was lacking to say the least.

After:

The owner wanted the new labels to leap off the shelves and feel more luxurious. He also wanted to use a metallic paper that would make the gold elements on the label really stand out and pop! White was printed on the labels to hide the metallic effect on certain areas, such as the nutrition facts, the black bar, and the bar code. All the gold – along with the eyes, the metal in the crown, and the gold leaf – shimmer on the final product. We couldn’t be happier with how these turned out.

Below is an entire sample label, and below that is the entire product line.

UPDATE:

Hot off the press, and on the shelves! So cool to see the labels we designed for King Louie’s Meat Apostles in stores.

5th Anniversary Logo Design for a St. Louis Area Rail Road Company

Posted on

One of our favorite types of logos to design are anniversary marks. Why? Because we get to create a unique logo, but it still has to compliment and vibe with the existing brand. On this logo, our client wanted their 5th anniversary logo to be inspired by vintage rail road logos. Below are our initial five proposed options.

The top left emblem is the winning design. They liked it so much that we created another seal (bottom right) that will be used as a secondary brand mark.
