Logo, Branding and Website Design & Development for the St. Louis HERO Network

Posted on June 21, 2018

The St. Louis HERO Network is a non-for-profit online directory that promotes local first responder and military owned businesses. In addition to the business directory, users can find a help wanted section that features an up-to-date list of local police, fire and EMS departments that are currently hiring, training and classes that are offered by local fire responders (such as CPR and stroke life support), real estate listings, and a calendar of events. It also features a HELP A HERO section where you can make a donation to a local fallen first responder’s family.

The HERO Network came to Visual Lure to help build a website along with a logo and additional collaterals. The new logo features a badge, an arch, and a HERO ribbon. Icons were also included to represent the four types of members. The color palette was inspired and pulled from typical fire responder related colors.

As for the website, it was developed in WordPress using a fully custom, responsive designed theme. The back-end is extremely complex as it integrates e-commerce memberships, an approval process, member listings that can be edited, ad listings with payments, donations, an event calendar, database feeds that automatically organize and populate the directory, custom post types and more.

You can check out some of the designs below, or visit stlheronetwork.com to learn more about the network. The official launch date is June 22nd, 2018.

Swingforehope.org Launches New WordPress Website

Posted on September 24, 2014

SwingForeHope.org has officially launched!  The new website was suppose to launch before their tournament on June 16th of this year but the company that purchased and controlled their domain name was unresponsive until just yesterday. The lesson here is DO NOT have the web design company working on your website, or anyone else for that matter, purchase or control your domain name! Make sure you purchase it yourself. That way you always have complete control over it.

The new website was built in WordPress. It was developed using a custom designed theme. It is fully responsive, making it easy to view and read on any type of device including desktop computers, tablets and smart phones. The site allows users to make donations and pay for the golf tournament and sponsorships. All donations are directly deposited into their PayPal account through the website.

Swing Fore Hope is a non-for-profit organization based out of Edwardsville, IL with a vision to help end breast cancer. This non-for-profit has two missions. One, to raise money for breast cancer research, and two, to help support local families facing financial difficulties as a result of this horrible disease.

Below are screenshots of the home page design and a sample template page.

Please visit SwingForeHope.org to learn more about this great organization.
