Holland Construction Christmas Card Design

Posted on December 16, 2015

Every year Visual Lure designs a custom Christmas card for Holland Construction Services. This year’s card was designed utilizing five stock illustrations. Safety glasses and a safety vest were custom drawn onto the stock illustrated snowman. The final artwork was then reformatted for a postcard.

Visual Lure Celebrates Its 10 Year Anniversary

Posted on February 23, 2012

We’ve been so busy designing world class logos, design savvy, user friendly, search engine optimized websites, award winning packaging designs and more, that we almost forgot we’ve officially been in business for 10 years (freelancing even longer, since the mid 90’s). We would like to thank all our customers, past and present, for the support and partnerships we’ve built. We couldn’t have done it without you.  We look forward to many more years to come.

Package Design for New USAF Academy Band CD

Posted on November 9, 2011

Visual Lure was recently contracted to design the packaging for a new USAF CD titled Sonata in Blue.  It will feature the Rampart Winds of the United States Air Force Academy Band.  The band provided the following direction: “We want to visually showcase the five individuals that make up the quintet.  Not necessarily with their pictures, but with some other representation.  The instruments used are flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon and French horn.  We would like to the cover to be recognizable as an Air Force product in some fashion…”

With this guidance, we came up with the concept of five F16s (representing the quintet) flying in formation with music (notes and symbols) coming out of the jet’s contrails (exhaust).  Below is our initial proposed cover. Check back soon to see the finished product.

Custom Illustrated Christmas Card for St. Louis Area Engineering Firm

Posted on

TWM, a St. Louis area engineering firm, recently contracted Visual Lure to create custom illustrated Christmas cards this year.  With complete creative control, we designed a card that features a couple of piggybacking elves working with a snowman on a land survey.  We also added a red gloved engineer inspecting a “season’s greetings” blueprint, and to finish it off, we added a snowy St. Louis skyline.  In addition to design services, we also wrote the copy: “We hope all your plans and dreams are fulfilled this holiday season!”.

Ad for an Omaha, Nebraska Wedding Photographer

Posted on October 17, 2011

Visual Lure was recently contracted to upgrade a logo and design a two page spread/ad for T. Free Photography, a very talented photographer based out of Omaha, Nebraska. The ad will be featured in Nebraska Wedding Day Magazine. We designed two initial ads that the client wasn’t feeling, but after receiving some direction and feedback, we hit the mark pretty close with our third design option.  We are still in the process of tweaking the ad, but below is a sneak peek at where we are.  Check back soon to see the final ad.

Another Anheuser Busch Susan G. Komen Shirt Design

Posted on July 8, 2011

A Budweiser distributor from Michigan liked our 2010 Anheuser Busch Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure t-shirt design so much they wanted to adapt it for their Susan G. Komen Rally for the Cure Golf Outing.  After they received approval from Anheuser Busch to use the artwork, we removed the running people and replaced them with a foursome of golfers along with some trees in the background.  Here is the altered t-shirt design.  I hope they raise a bunch of money for a great cause.

Anheuser Busch’s 2011 Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure T-shirt Design

Posted on May 5, 2011

We were honored to design the t-shirts for Anheuser Busch’s (Susan G. Komen) Race for the Cure team again this year. Below is the final design, and the design below that, could not be used due to Susan G. Komen’s logo standards/guidelines, but we thought we’d show it anyway.

It’s hard to believe it’s been a year already, and if you’ve kept up with our blog since then, you would know that my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer around the same time I designed last years shirts.  Since then, she has finished her chemo and radiation and is finally starting to feel “back to normal”.  I feel both lucky and blessed that she is OK, and it always means a little extra when I get to design these shirts.

Look out for our shirts June 11th in St. Louis at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
