Sales Brochure Design for State Construction

Posted on July 29, 2016

Visual Lure recently completed a new sales brochure for State Construction, a premier St. Louis Metro East residential home builder. They currently have three subdivisions with available lots: Bethel Ridge Farms, The Estates at Hearthstone and Cobblestone Ridge, with more in the works. The subdivisions are all located in O’Fallon, IL, one of the fastest growing communities in the St. Louis area.

State Construction has a solid reputation for their commitment to craftsmanship and for building quality homes. It was a pleasure designing them a new brochure that reflects those same qualities.

Not only did we design the brochure, we also gathered print bids, coordinated printing and press checked the project for quality control. Printing was preformed by Schwartzkopf Printing in Alton, Illinois. In addition to the brochure design, Visual Lure is also designing and developing a new website for State. Check back soon for a post on the launch of their new website.

Branding Package for a Tampa, Florida Photography Studio

Posted on June 4, 2016

Donnie Jones Photography is a Tampa, Florida photography studio that specializes in weddings, engagements, high school senior portraits and maternity photography. Donnie is a very talented photographer and someone who understands the importance of building a brand and doing everything right the first time around. He is pretty much our ideal client and we can’t wait to see his success.

Donnie Jones Photography came to Visual Lure wanting a luxury, high-end looking branding package, and we’re confident that we delivered. It started with the logo which features an integrated DJ monogram along with a logo for his premier Gold Collection. We then designed an identity package which included business cards, letterhead and envelopes. We finished everything off with a fully-custom, responsive, fast-loading, easy to maintain WordPress website. The website features a large random loading image on the home page, a fully integrated blog, a sticky header, masonry light box photo galleries and subtle CSS animation effect that give the site a sense of elegance and sophistication.

Tradeshow Graphics for FUELAB, a Digital Fuel Delivery Manufacturer

Posted on January 20, 2016

FUELAB is an industry leader in the development and manufacturing of aftermarket fuel delivery products. Their extensive line includes digital fuel pumps, fuel pressure regulators, fuel filters and accessories. They are headquartered right here in the St. Louis Metro East area in Collinsville, IL. Visit fuelab.com to learn more about this state-of-the-art company and their products.

FUELAB originally came to Visual Lure to re-design their existing trade show booth panels. The old design was distracting and visually muddy which made their products (the most important part of their booth) difficult to see.

Below you can see before and after photographs along with the artwork we created. The new design makes the booth stand out and it allows the products to be the main attractions. At the very bottom is a print ad we designed and wrote.

Full Page Ad Design for a Sonoma Pinot Noir

Posted on September 4, 2015

We recently came across a contest to design a full page ad for a Sonoma, California Pinot Noir called “7” on the St. Louis Egotist website. Even though we never enter design contest, or do spec work, we’ve always wanted to get into designing labels for beer, wine or spirits. This came somewhat close to that, so we decided to whip up a couple options. Since the name was based on the creators wife’s favorite number, and the cork reads: LUCKY YOU, we decided to play off a “lucky” theme. We wrote the body copy, four headline options and paired it with a design based off the label. We’re not looking to win the job, but a couple bottles of Pinot wouldn’t be bad.

Logo & Branding Package for Quebec Photography Studio

Posted on September 1, 2015

Studios Elysium Photographie is a Rigaud, Quebec based wedding and portrait studio offering wedding, family and glamour photography in the Vaudreuil, Montreal and eastern Ontario area. They recently came to Visual Lure to create a new visual identity. They requested that we incorporate a dragonfly into the logo as it has a special meaning to this husband and wife photography team. We did so by making it form the letter ‘t” in Studios.

Below you can see the vertical and horizontal logo formats, the sample identity/letterhead system, proposed packaging and a sample watermark. At the very bottom are two unselected logos that we really liked. The bottom right logo was a fleur de lis that also created a dragonfly. We thought this one was genius, but after speaking to the clients, they informed me that it would be controversial using a French symbol in their logo. I guess there is a dispute whether Quebec should be politically aligned and influenced by France. They didn’t tell me which they preferred, simply that they didn’t want their business logo to be controversial.
