Commemorative Magazine Design for Blackburn College

Posted on September 19, 2017

Visual Lure was recently contracted by Blackburn College to design a commemorative magazine to celebrate a highly successful fundraising campaign. Blackburn College, located in Carlinville, IL, was founded in 1837 and is affiliated with the United States Presbyterian Church. It provides a coeducational student body with a rigorous, distinctive, and affordable liberal arts education that prepares graduates to be responsible, productive citizens.

The magazine features a clean, corporate, institutional design with a financial summary, infographics about the campaign, large images with ample white space, and inspiring staff & alumni quotes spread throughout the magazine. Check out some of the main pages and spreads below.

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 a new brochure for them 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.

50th Wedding Anniversary Save the Dates & Invitations

Posted on January 21, 2015

My in-laws just celebrated their golden 50th wedding anniversary – and as a good son-in-law, who is also a graphic designer, I was in charge of designing the save-the-dates and the invitations.

Below you can see the save-the-dates. Underneath that is a card we placed in the save-the-dates for friends and family to write a special note or memory that they shared with the couple. We later placed them all in a book and gave it to them as a gift. Beneath the note card is the return envelope that features two frames, one of the couple when they were married and the other to place the stamp.

At the very bottom is the invitation. Everything was printed by Schwartzkopf Printing.

Christmas Cards for a St. Louis Metro East Engineering Firm

Posted on November 6, 2014

It’s that time of year again. Time for companies to get their Christmas cards designed, printed and ordered in time for the holidays.

Once again Thouvenot, Wade & Moerchen (TWM) has contracted Visual Lure for a custom designed Christmas card. This year they wanted to incorporate a water tower into the design as every year they try to highlight one of their core services. One of their specialties is water and waste-water civil engineering which includes the design of water towers.

This years card features a candy cane water tower being decorated by elves. We custom illustrated the water tower, and customized two sets of stock illustrated elves to make them look like they were wrapping the tower in lights.

Package/Label Design for a St. Louis Metro East Glass Cleaner Manufacturer

Posted on

Visual Lure recently completed the following label/package design for Bright House Glass Cleaner. Bright House is a manufacturer of household cleaning products and is located in the St. Louis Metro East in Columbia, Illinois. Visual Lure has also designed packaging for other Bright House products including their dishwashing soap. Click here to view that design project.

We feel that the new packaging looks “fresh and clean” which are the characteristics you want a glass cleaner to have. We were able to achieve this look by using a subtle “shiny/gleaming” background, a bright green and blue color palette along with clean and modern typography. The fire engine red “new burst” will also help the label jump off the shelf and attract eye-balls which is what good package design does.

Custom Illustrated T-Shirt Design for Visual Lure

Posted on September 18, 2014

We were recently inspired by a design we found on Pinterest of some spectacularly crafted ornate playing cards. We decided to take that inspiration and use it to design a new t-shirt for Visual Lure®. The “eyeball in the palms” illustration was custom drawn by hand. It is based off our logo which reflects our tagline: Professional Eye-Catchers™. It was designed to look like an old woodcut print. Below the new design is an older shirt we had printed using the same illustration but different design.
