David Tovar, “Your Local Home Marketing Specialist”

David Tovar of Exit Castillo Realty, (independently owned and operated), commissioned Republic Design Company for the design, production, and implementation of the following 3 marketing collateral elements:

  1. Business Cards
  2. Open House ‘Directionals’ (Signs)
  3. “Support At Home,” Poster/Ad Campaign

For his business cards, the objective was simple. We streamlined the formatting of his contact information and removed the background of his profile picture, so that you can only see David Tovar, then maximized his pictures size and placement. David Tovar requested we include a “FREE e-Coupon from Lowe’s Home Improvement,” offer on the backside of his business card (available at: smarturl.it/DavidTovar). Finally, rounding out the backside of his business card, we included all his social media link-icons with the emphasis of his main website: www.DavidTovar.com, “Your Local Home Marketing Specialist.”

Next up, we took the same basic design elements from the front-side of David Tovar’s business cards and applied them to his “Open House ‘Directionals’ (coroplast signs).” Although there seems to be a lot less content on these signs, a lot of thought and consideration went into the size and placement of each item.

David Tovar is Indeed, “Your Local Home Marketing Specialist.” He’s donated over $100.ºº to the “Support At Home,” cause “Giving thanks to our active troops, veterans, and their families in the U.S.;” sponsored by The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. His generous support has afforded him the opportunity to create and display this Poster/Advertisement at the respective coffee shop, located at 2180 N. Rose Avenue, Oxnard, CA 93030. We emulated the ‘look-and-feel’ of the Coffee Shops Call-To-Action poster and incorporated David Tovar’s imagery and contact information for patrons to inquire directly.

Irvin Saravia is a young-yet-incredibly talented tattoo artist with a style and versatility of a seasoned vet. After sitting down with Irvin to discuss his project, we quickly learned he has a penchant for street-art. He explained to REPUBLIC how he wanted graffiti elements with “lots of red,” included in his business card design. He then, very casually, pointed to a book sitting on our coffee table and said, “just like this…” The book he was pointing to? “Art In The Streets, (by Jeffrey DeitchRoger GastmanAaron Rose).”

Pictured, is the feature-mural that wraps the cover of the “Art In The Streets” book. From here, the business card “almost” designed it-self. We placed all of Irvin’s contact info in a complimentary/stylized manner while leaving opposite side unobstructed…
