Real Estate Listing Specialist, Ricardo Salazar, asked we design and create a marketing piece he could use to reach-out to current and perspective home buyers and sellers. The beauty of this marketing piece is that it functions both when making face-to-face contact with current and perspective clients, as-well-as, when not making face-to-face contact. Simply put, ‘if nobody’s home, leave a door-hanger’. The door hangers accentuate Ricardo and his “Dream Team’s” strengths, accomplishments, well-wishes, services-offered, along-with ‘success stories’ of recent listings (like www.660cortecorridacamarillo.com) and all pertinent contact info.
The Z5th Hour commissioned Republic Design Company for the design and implementation of http://www.TheZ5thHour.com website, and also it’s ongoing online presence maintenance.
The Z5th Hour was originally conceived by thee enigmatic artist, dancer, dj, and principal creative, Luis Soto aka “Chauncey Pearls.” With musical influences like Doc Martin (Sub-Level), Marques Wyatt (Deep, LA) and Jason Bentley (KCRW), Chauncey’s primary focus was to bring House Music to Ventura County. It was (and still is), important (to Chauncey) to make the distinction between House Music and it’s over-popularized parent, Electronic Dance Music (EDM). Although House Music fall’s under the EDM umbrella, it’s primary distinction lies within the “feeling” one derives when referring to one or the other. As such, Chauncey’s hell-bent on bringing that “feeling,” of “House Music,” to Ventura County area, (and beyond)…
As the name denotes, “The Z5th Hour,” in it’s simplistic form, implies “Time.” In researching various graphical representation of “Time Clock’s,” along with The Z5th Hour futuristic sound based off of Funk + Disco; it seemed like a natural progression to use this retro-digital-styled type-font, as it’s identity + livery.
With Chauncey’s creative direction, in conjunction with the newly agreed-upon logo/identity; these “All Day, House Music, All Night,” icon’s came about in the natural course of design discovery.
I do have to admit… The “Do what makes you happy,” rule applies in this instance because I, too, am a “House Music aficionado.” I listen to this genre music, at length, and The Z5th Hour was pleased with the work rendered. They further commissioned Republic Design Company to continue their “online presence” and advocacy by blogging and aggregating across all their social media platforms. Aside from designing and producing all their marketing collateral (such as event flyers + posters), they also had me blog about new and relevant music, as follows:
We also compiled “Teaser Video’s” (like the one that follows), to promote events on different social media platforms
We are pleased to be The Z5th Hour’s design consultant’s of choice.
RE/MAX Gold Coast Realtors of Ventura County, California, commissioned Republic Design Company as the official design consultants for the 1st Annual “Ventura County Fun Fest;” a benefit for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals event.
Republic was asked to create an original logo/identity that encompassed a feeling relating to (the end of) the month of October. What better iconic figure/symbol than the classic “pumpkin” to serve as the backdrop/anchor to the overall visual presentation of Ventura Family Fun Fest? We then decided to wrap a red ribbon 3 times around the exterior of the pumpkin to highlight the title sponsor, (REMAX), the name of the event (Ventura Family Fun Fest), and for whom the benefit of this event is/(was) for, (Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals). The finishing touch was the inclusion of what we refer to as the “end-tails” in which the top-right-hand end-tail denotes “1st Annual,” and bottom-left-hand end-tail denotes “5K/1K.”
Next, we were asked to create a series of marketing collateral pieces for a variety of applications, including (in no particular order):
1. Wine Glasses
2. Children’s Press-On Mock Tattoo’s
3. Aluminum Water-Bottles
4. E-Mail Flyer (or E-Flyer)

The San Gabriel Valley Conservation Corps, (SGVCC), in conjunction with Ruby Rose Sanchez, commissioned Republic Design Company for the design and implementation of the “Green Apple Day of Service” (5.5″ x 8.5″), postcard/flyer/e-flyer:
First a little background on “Green Apple:”
“A quarter of all Americans walk through the doors of a school every day. Yet instead of walking into places of opportunity, millions enter buildings where the air they breathe is filled with toxins and mold, where classrooms are poorly lit and overcrowded, and where resources are limited and outdated. Too many of our children are learning in buildings that are compromising their health and ability to succeed.
Our kids deserve better. Where they learn matters.
Green Apple is an initiative of the Center for Green schools at USGBC to put all children in schools where they have clean and healthy air to breath, where energy and resources are conserved, and where they can be inspired to dream of a brighter future. We know how to create high performing schools that save hundreds of thousands of dollars and provide safer learning environments for our children. Learn more —> here <—
Second, a little about the “Day of Service:”
“The first annual Green Apple Day of Service will take place on Sept. 29, 2012. For one day, advocates from around the world, including students, teachers, parents, elected officials, organizations, companies and more, will come together in support of healthy, sustainable schools by taking action in their communities.” Learn more —> here <—
Lastly, a little about the Center for Green Schools:
“The Center for Green Schools at the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is the organization behind the Green Apple movement, working to ensure that every student has the opportunity to attend a green school within this generation. The Center provides the resources and support to elevate dialogue, accelerate policy and institute innovation toward healthy, high-performing schools and campuses. The Center works directly with staff, teachers, faculty, students, administrators, elected officials and communities to drive the transformation of all schools into sustainable places to live and learn, work and play.” Learn more —> here <—
