Cleaning Up & Fixing a Logo to of My Favorite Restaurants

Posted on April 29, 2024

Mungo’s Italian Eatery, located in Collinsville, Illinois, is one of my family’s favorite restaurants. My wife and I have been patrons since the mid-1990s, and their logo has always bothered me. It appears as though it was cut out with scissors, with messy proportions, inconsistent letter thickness, and improper sizing. So, I took it upon myself to meticulously redraw and refine every aspect by hand.

Here is the before & after:

Logo Upgrade for Local Medical Aesthetics Office

Posted on April 21, 2022

Not all the logo and branding work we do starts from scratch. Sometimes we are brought in – to simply update, tweak, or adjust a logo – which was the case here.

Pure 111 was moving offices and wanted to fine tune their logo for their new building signage. When we reviewed their existing logos we noticed there were different icons being used (see the “before” below), and their horizontal and vertical logo options felt disconnected – both because of the different icons, but also because of the different typefaces being used. The logotype also felt generic and unrefined.

Our solutions was to polish up the icon, and update the type. We created a custom R which still felt super modern, but gave the logotype a touch of femininity. It also made it look more custom, and not so “out of the box”. We slightly lightened the type too – which made it feel a little more refined and stylish. Their new offices and signage turned out great!

Do you have an existing logo that looks dated or unrefined but you’re hesitant to explore a complete redesign because you feel it has too much brand equity or brand recognition? Or maybe you just need an existing logo converted into vector artwork with different formats. Either way, Visual Lure can help.

Logo Upgrade & Website for Riechers Truck Bodies

Posted on February 12, 2020

Visual Lure recently updated RIECHERS TRUCK BODIES’ logo and built them a new custom WordPress Website

Like so many companies, RIECHERS TRUCK BODIES was using multiple versions of a logo, each different. Different fonts, slightly different colors, etc. We cleaned up their existing logo – adjusting the spacing, making it easier to read, removed “& Equipment” allowing more room for “TRUCK BODIES”, and provided multiple options for one color uses.

In addition to the logo update, we also redesigned their mudflaps and the sticker that they add to every build. Everything now ties together better and looks more cohesive.
