In light of the Washington Nationals World Series Championship victory last night; I thought I’d share this recent logo design I re-imagined for my barber Ruben Soriano (ig: @barber_gang3) of Whoskie’s Barbershop in South El Monte, CA.
The premise was to employ the iconic “W” of the center of the Washington Nationals logo and mold fonts to work with and around the “W,” as-well-as use the same color scheme as it’s predecessor.
The “W” is also used as a common counter-culture reference to “West Side,” or “West Coast,” most famously popularized by Westside Connection and other Hip-Hop artist of the time. This, in conjunction with the name of “Whoskies Barbershop,” makes for an amalgamation of similar tastes and shared design livery.
Dj Swift wanted to change the type-font of his previous logo up a bit to a cursive-script font style that embodied a classic baseball inspired design; along with the inclusion of his website on the underlying ribbon below his Dj Swift name. We then created ‘grooves’, similar to that found on a vinyl record, along with the city-scape cut into the bottom-half of the record.
After our client approved the featured logo design, we then proceeded in the creation of the Dj Swift Music Logo Style-Guide. The Logo Style-Guide is an instruction sheet that helps clients understand the various file-formats their logo is saved in and what the different uses are intended for. We at Republic Design Company pride ourselves on educating our clients on proper logo usage techniques and are always available to assist our clients on an on-going basis…
The Logo Style-Guide is saved in Adobe Illustrator File (.ai) format, Portable Document Format File (.pdf) format, Jpeg File (.jpg) format, and Ping File (.png) format:
We then screen-printed t-shirts for Dj Swift onto heather gray shirts.
Many Thanks to Dj Swift for the opportunity to be of assistance.
Our clients gave us complete freedom to come-up-with a simple t-shirt design. As such, we designed and created a ribbon-esque-banner with ” Hide Away Bar” across it. We included the bar’s 3 main focus’ (beer • wine • food) along with phone number and address, prominently featured on back.
We’d like to sincerely thank Hide Away Bar for the opportunity to assist them on their t-shirt design project.

Pacifica High School commissioned Republic Design Company for the design and production of their 2016 Seniors Rally Tshirts.
Student “My Tran, (Pacifica High School Senior Class Treasurer),” reached out to us for the design and implementation of the Seniors Rally Tshirts. She asked us to come-up with original creative designs that encompassed the look, feel, and livery of Pacifica High School.
Pacifica High School is the Home of the “Tritons (mascot) .” A mythical Greek god, the messenger of the sea. He carried a “Trident” which is a three-pronged spear. It is used for spear fishing and historically as a “pole-arm.”
After some brief research on the history of the look, feel, and livery of thee Pacifica High School (PHS) “Tritons,” we developed a very clean, simple, symmetrical “Trident.” We originally outlined the Trident, added class year “2016” (20 on left, 16 on right) and collegiate block letters “SENIORS,” arched above, (see v1 in image above).
In the normal course of design discovery, we noticed that we could use the Trident to double as the “I” in Seniors.
We continued to develop 5 (five) design variations until they decided upon version 6 (main design featured above).
We’re happy to report… –Due to the success of the Pacifica High School Sneiors Rally Tshirts, they have sold out, and are contemplating a reorder.
Special “Thanks” to My Tran, “Mr. C,” (aka Mr. Mike Castanon – ASB Activities Director), thee Pacifica High School Senior Class Board Committee, and the entire Senior Class who made the 2016 Seniors Rally Tshirts a success…
