Building the Creative Idea in Brochure Copy
The brochure in the direct mail pack for Vista Levolor window blinds carries forward the creative idea presented in the letter - drawing an allusion between the genius of Michelangelo and the masterpieces about to be created by the architect. The brochure is the place where the creative idea can be fully developed and explored, and the product described in detail.
The cover headline reads:
Centuries ago, Michelangelo freed the angel he perceived in a block of marble. And created works of art the world still talks about. Today, the angel in Vista Levolor waits for your creative touch. And the world waits with bated breath for your masterpiece.
Inside Page 1 Crosshead: Michelangelo frees the angel
Michelangelo, kike every artist, be he painter, sculptor, writer or architect, had a very special relationship with his materials. This passion coupled with his genius, drove him to create masterpieces such as the Pieta for St. Peter's Basilica in Rome and the fresco titled "Creation" for the Sistine Chapel.
Page 2 Crosshead: Now, free the angel in Vista Levolor
Vista Levolor understands that a creative person like you needs the right material with which to express his genius. Turn a turkey into a peacock, a room into a work of art.
Vista Levolor, synonymous with the art of window fashions in India, has a collaboration with Levolor Corporation, USA, who were the first to recognize the merit of a powerful concept conceived in the same land as Michelangelo – Italy.
The story takes you back a hundred years to Venice where homes suffered from congestion, poor lighting and lack of ventilation until one day when Italian ingenuity
surfaced and people began putting wooden louvres on their windows. This served the dual purpose of creating privacy and letting in air and light. The Venetian blind, as we know it today, came into being.

Today, Levolor has lifted this essentially functional concept of the Venetian blind to the ultimate in design an aesthetics. Transforming it from a mere instrument of ventilation and light into a canvas for discriminating architects and designers.
In India, only one company gives you the same international window coverings that architects and designers worldwide recommend – Vista Levolor.
And why not? Vista Levolor's collaborators, Levolor Corporation, USA, have been global leaders in the industry for more than 80 years, giving Vista Levolor their technological expertise in design innovation and production on a continuous basis. Then there is Vista Levolor's dedication to quality and engineering, adding up to give you window coverings that are truly state-of-the-art.
Describing the Product Range in the Brochure
Another important role of the brochure is to provide details about the product and the company that manufactures it.

Vista Levolor's Venetian blinds run on a sophisticated, fully imported silicon-treaed mechanism. Precision engineered to smoothly transform an interior into the designer's showcase, these come with matching colour valances for a coordinated look.
And because works of art must not fade away with time, Vista Levolor's Venetian blinds come with features that make them long lasting. The cord lock, for instance, has an in-built mechanism which makes them crash-proof, prevents damages to the blind and ensures perfect locking. Then there's the guardian tilter which also has an automatically disengaging worm and gear mechanism to further eliminate the chance of damage.
The slats, while only one inch wide, are rugged, tough and durable. Made from a high grade Aluminum-Magnesium alloy, the slats refuse to bend, arch or crack.
