New Website & Brochure Design for St. Louis Metro East Apartment Complex

Posted on December 3, 2019

New Custom WordPress Website

Visual Lure recently launched a new custom WordPress website for Tamarack Woods Apartments, a luxury apartment complex located in Shiloh, Illinois bordering O’Fallon. The complex is extremely well maintained and managed, and is located right next to Target, Dierbergs, tons of restaurants, and both new Memorial and St. Elizabeth’s hospitals. Interstate 64 access is a mile away, and its proximity to Scott Air Force Base make this a highly desired location – plus they offer military and hospital employee discounts.

In addition to the design and development of the website, Visual Lure also designed a new accordion brochure for the apartments. The new brochure complements the design of the website and features photography captured by Visual Lure. We also designed the original logo.

Branding for Revolutionary New Cleaning Scrub Gloves

Posted on October 8, 2018

The Heavyweight Scrub Gloves is a revolutionary new cleaning product that is about to disrupt the cleaning industry. These scrub gloves, using a patent pending design, allow users to control the range of abrasiveness – the harder you press, the more abrasive it becomes. When used properly, it will easily remove bugs/dirt/grime from surfaces without scratching, allowing you to effectively clean almost anything. It gets in all the nooks and crannies your hand can fit, doesn’t require the use of chemicals, and is long lasting.

Heavyweight came to Visual Lure early on in their development process and we’ve had the pleasure of helping them with their logo & branding, brand messaging & strategy, packaging, and website.

WordPress Website with E-commerce

Below is the new website we helped launch using the Unicon WordPress theme. We typically do not work with pre-designed themes, but since they were such good clients, we assisted them with the website. We also helped activate WooCommerce, implement their payment gateway, and install their SSL certificate to make it an e-commerce website. You can visit the new website at hwscrubgloves.com.
