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.

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…
VC Property Brothers is co-op of brothers Enrique and Daniel Montaño who are both Realtors ® at RE/MAX Gold Coast Realtors in Ventura, CA. It is a take on thee popular HGTV show “Property Brothers,” where twin brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott aim to help couples find fixer-uppers and transform them into their dream homes. Similarly, the “VC Property Brothers,” aim to do the same, in the Ventura County market.
To start. The VC Property Brothers asked we create a logo for them, that encapsulated who they were/their essence so-to-speak. After several design variations, we quite literally took the silhouette of their main, combined, profile picture, that their existing and future marketing campaign was going to be centered around; and use that as the foundation of their logo design. It is set inside a simplified house silhouette that doubles for an “up” arrow, signifying upward mobility and prosperity both, for them and for their clients they humbly serve. Lastly, we made sure to include the VC Property Brothers title inside the logo design, surrounding the perimeter of the logo, in a circular fashion.
Now that their logo was complete, it was time to package and put-together their “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…
Next, it was time to move onto the design and production of their business cards. The business cards production needed to complement the ‘dapper’ look-and-feel of Enrique and Daniel Montaño’s profile picture. They opted for a 16 point card stock with silk-laminate look-and-feel, along with spot UV gloss on certain portions of the graphics of the business cards. Included with all pertinent contact information, membership associations, charitable causes, and facebook + twitter links; the cards came-out great…
After designing and producing their business cards, it was time to start designing and producing the VC Property Brothers website, www.VCPropertyBrothers.com. We have incredible photography of Enrique and Daniel Montaño. We have a strong logo/identity/brand design already set in place. Now it was time to pool all these element, online…
We built the VC Property Brothers website on WordPress.com. We at Republic Design Company love working in wordpress because, “IT’S FREE!” Only fee our clients have to pay is the annual domain name purchase (which runs approximately $15.ºº on GoDaddy or WordPress).
The VC Property Brothers website comes fully equipped with feature video, contact page, client testimonials, instagram and facebook links. But it doesn’t stop there! One of the most robust features on the VC Property Website is the integration of the sophisticated home-search service option, IDX…
IDX(Internet Data Exchange) is how MLS listings end up on a website.
Also known as Broker Reciprocity, IDX encompasses the policies, rules, and software that allow listings from the MLS database to be displayed publicly.
Anytime you see properties on a website that came from an MLS, it was made possible through IDX.
Most real estate agents and brokers use IDX to simply display MLS listings or home search tools on their website, but as home buyers have become more Internet-savvy, IDX has evolved to encompass more. Agents today have the option to use basic home search tools provided by their MLS, or build more advanced IDX solutions; usually with the help of an IDX vendor.
NOW, anyone interested in searching for properties for sale in the Ventura County area (and beyond), can go to VC Property Brothers website, and serach from a comprehsevie list of available listings!
Along with the aforementioned marketing collateral, Enrique and Daniel casually inquired if we could design their vehicles back windshield graphics. We at Republic Design Company were more-than-happy to oblige. We designed the perforated vinyl graphics and installed them to their vehicles, respectively.
We’d like to sincerely thank Enrique and Daniel Montaño for the opportunity to assist them with their Marketing needs…

Senior Officers Charles Woodruff and Daniel Shrubb of the Oxnard Police Department created DRAGG, (Drag Racing Against Gangs and Graffiti). DRAGG is a hot new program here in the city of Oxnard where officers along with people from the automotive industry, help reach out to the youth of today. DRAGG provides a viable alternative in the automotive industry and helps guide and mentor our youth. DRAGG’s goal is to reach out to high-school Juniors and Seniors through after-school programs, field trips and special events. It’s a new spin on an old idea, “keep the youth focused on the future,” with trained and experienced individuals in the automotive industry and in-partnership with the Oxnard Police Department.
The design of these business cards was pretty straight-forward. (Just as the photo/digital proof denotes), the back of the business card has their program’s staple Mustang featured “center-stage,” along with the official DRAGG logo + Oxnard Police Department badge intermittent as the back-drop. Featured below Mustang is their motto/tag-line: “When Kids have better things to do they tend to do better things.”
Three sets of business cards were created. One for each police officer, and one for general information. Contact information and social media icons were placed accordingly including the DRAGG logo in the upper-left-hand corner and Oxnard Police Department “badge” as a water-mark.

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.
