CABEC hosts a yearly conference in a different city in California. This years conference is set to take place in Palm Springs, California. The CABEC conference committee wanted to design a logo that encapsulated the title of this years conference, along with natural elements “wind, water, and sun, (and a lil’ palm tree).”
After clear communication and fine-tuning the CABEC Energy Oasis 2017 logo/brand/identity to the conference committee’s satisfaction; we then proceeded in formulating the CABEC Energy Oasis 2017 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:
Many thanks to CABEC for the opportunity to be of assistance.

Credit Coach Rolando Castro had the Credit Repair Solutions logo in JPEG format, but not the original artwork files (in digital/vector format). No worries! We recreated the logo exactly, and were then able to expand the brand by replicating it in a variety of ways (see top image above).
Next, we created his business cards with all pertinent information:
We continued the livery (theme) we created in the business cards on-forward to the design of their Credit Repair Solutions 8.5in x 5.5in postcard/flyer advertisement:
Finally, Credit Coach Rolando Castro requested we create a 24in x 36in poster for him to hang in his office lobby. Just as we did for business cards and postcard/flyer advertisement, we continued the design aesthetics forward into the design of his poster in order to, “tie it all together.” That is, to make all marketing collateral unified in it’s presentation.
We at Republic Design Company would like to sincerely thank Credit Coach Rolando Castro and the entire team over at Credit Repair Solutions for their continued support in the design and production of all their marketing collateral…
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.
Hide Away Bar
Beer • Wine • Pool

First: Logo Recreation… Fernandez Jewelers (conveniently located inside the Centerpoint Mallin Oxnard, CA), is one-in-the-same with Fernandez Fine Jewelry (conveniently located inside the Pacificview Mallin Ventura, CA). We were not asked to design the original logo/brand/identity for either names. We were asked to redesign and recreate them for marketing collateral print and production. As such, we recreated the logo(‘s) in vector format in both color and grayscale.
Now that we had the logos recreated, it was time to start designing the layout of the business cards. Since each storefront is located inside shopping malls prominent to their local market(s), we included corresponding malls logo to each storefront logo/brand/identity respectively.
After business card design and production, we began designing t-shirts, (v-necks and crew), for both Men and Women, in a variety of colors. They are intended for promotional product giveaway to help raise brand awareness.
Next up was the design and implementation of their online presence, www.fernandezjewelers.net. The website was built on WordPress and features all necessary information regarding Fernandez Jewelers. Social media placement amongst popular social media platforms (facebook, twitter, google+, pinterest, and instagram), Fernandez Jewelers is easy to find both online and instore.
We’d like to sincerely thank Gonzalo of Fernandez Jewelers for the opportunity to assist with all his marketing collateral needs…
Chef Geno Bahena is a Mexican Culinary Advisor responsible for the opening of over a dozen restaurants in the Chicago area. “Geno” specializes in cooking classes, menu consulting, catering, food styling, cookbooks, Mexican kitchen layouts, culinary research for TV programs and restaurant start-ups. Mojado Grill is Chef Geno Bahena’s first offering on the West Coast, and currently helms the kitchen at La Costa Mission Restaurant in Malibu, CA.
For more information on Chef Geno Bahena, please visit:
Some important design parameters, were that we were to use a nice, easily-readable, script-stylized font for both the name of the restaurant, as-well-as, “by Chef Geno Bahena,” title. We were also given “carte blanche,” to come-up-with and infuse what we believed an appropriate representation of not only “Mojado (aka “wet,” in spanish), “Grill” (flame + yellow-to-red color gradient with brushed aluminum texture). The result, was/is the following:
After principals fell in-love with their logo, we then created 4-different variations which include:
1. Full-color logo,
2. Grey-scale logo,
3. Black with white background logo, and
4. White with black background logo,
each saved in:
1. Adobe Illustrator File (.ai),
2. Portable Document Format File (.pdf),
3. Jpeg File (.jpg), and
4. Ping File (.png).
Finally, we coupled everything with a critical document that contains instructions + information we call thee “Logo/Style-Guide.” This document explains what each file type is used for, including CMYK + HEX# color-guard, gradient strokes, and textures employed.
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)
5. Facebook Event Page Image
6. Website Banner
7. Ventura Family Fun Fest 4″x6″ Postcard
8. Ventura Family Fun Fest 8″x10″ Flyer
9. Ventura Family Fun Fest 11″x17″ Poster
10. Ventura Family Fun Fest T-Shirt
Last, but certainly not least, we at Republic Design Company would like to sincerely thank Briana Bouffard, Business Development Director at RE/MAX Gold Coast Realtors, for her generous solicitation of our graphic design services. We look forward to working with Briana next year for the 2nd Annual Ventura Family Fun Fest…
The principals of the Q Club Oxnard commissioned REPUBLIC Design Company for the design, implementation and production of not just another business card; but a carefully-crafted/multi-faceted marketing piece…
First, a little background…
The Q Club Oxnard is a full-service billiards, bar-and-grill, sports lounge, that has been a staple in Oxnard and the Ventura County area for many, many years. To best exemplify Q Club Oxnard and capture it’s “essence,” one can-NO! -One must draw the comparison between it, and the hit 80’s T.V. sit-com, “CHEERS” (featuring Ted Danza, Kristie Alley, Shelley Long, Kelsey Grammer [to name a few] and various other beloved actors/characters). Q Club Oxnard, just like “CHEERS” magically capture an essence and camaraderie that was (then) and is (now) best summed-up by the now-infamous quote:
“where everybody knows your name…”
Simply-put, The Q Club Oxnard is, “home.” A friendly place where ALL are welcome to catch their favorite game on TV, have a drink, play a little bit of pool/billiards. Heck, Q Club Oxnard even comes fully equipped with their very own “Norm (played by then actor George Wendt)!” You have to visit and experience it for yourself…
Republic Design Company was called upon to strategize, delineate, and stream-line Q Club Oxnard’s core competencies into the 8 following categories:
1. Delicious Grill Menu | 2. Fully Stocked Bar: 16 beers on Tap & Mixed Drinks! | 3. Party + Catering Facilities for all Occasions | 4. 3 x 16 ft. Mega-Screens + Flat Screens Throughout | 5. Live Music, DJ’s, Karaoke, Bands, & Dancing | 6. All Sports Packages: UFC, HBO, PPV, Boxing, FOX Deportes, Soccer (futbol) | 7. Pool and Pool Leagues plus Billiards and Billiard Accessories | 8. “Lunch Power Hour” Specials
Coupled with recurring/subliminal messages on-top of imaginary green-felt background of pool table, was, of-course the Q Club Oxnard logo and contact information, hours, and facebook web address:
Q Club Oxnard
2362 N. Oxnard Blvd., Oxnard, CA 93036 | (805) 278-1231
Instead of creating individual/personalized business cards for each employee of the Q club Oxnard; we designed the marketing collateral piece in such a way that not only can existing and perspective employees of the Q Club Oxnard could write their names onto, but key friends-and-family of the Q Club Oxnard (or whomever management would like to grant access to) can “write their name” directly to the left of “says…” with a pen or Sharpie…
“The Q is for YOU!”
The back of this marketing collateral piece is designed with the objective of increasing the Q Club Oxnard’s email database with the allure of not only a 25% discount off your next purchase*, but the ongoing inclusion of special offers that are going to be made available exclusively to email database subscribers!
“Come In” | “Make New Friends” | “Have Fun”
*Offer expires 45 days from (__/__/__) | *Fill-out this business card, submit to cashier at time of purchase, recieve 25% OFF your bill | *Limit one per person/per purchase. Certain exclusions may apply. See management for details
*This special offer can NOT be duplicated or replicated off this or any website.
