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…
Melanie Baldonado had already identified her “online voice,” which is one of the most tedious obstacles to initiate. She was already present on various social media platforms like facebook, twitter, and google+. This puts her ahead of the game because she was already laying-down the ground-work for her “online presence.” Melanie Baldonado had also already begun a series of hilarious youtube videos. As the world knows, the Search Engine Optimization (S.E.O.), potential/capabilities of online video are astronomical.
So it seems like Melanie Baldonado was doing pretty good on her own. For all the reasons mentioned above, (and then some), Melanie Baldonado was doing GREAT as a matter of fact. From an online perspective, Melanie Baldonado was “All Over The Net…” At this point, your probably wondering, “Why hire Republic Design Company?” Answer: “Bring It All Home…”
The objective of http://www.MelanieBaldonado.com, was to create a centralized location for her audience to learn about Melanie Baldonado and engage across all of her ongoing platforms. Perhaps a fan see’s her perform comedy somewhere, but didn’t realize she was also an Actress. Perhaps a talent agent is interested in seeing and learning more about Melanie Baldonado? For all of these reasons, (and more), a website made more-and-more sense.
After developing the website creative brief, we asked Melanie Baldonado to give us any-and-all photography she felt best represented her. Fortunate for Republic Design Company, Melanie Baldonado ‘isn’t hard to look at…’ She made the job of creating and developing the visual presence of http://www.MelanieBaldonado.com very easy… We began by editing and cropping some great, high-resolution images, putting her name in thee proverbial “Big Lights,” and sparsely spreading her images throughout. The result is the main Melanie Baldonado main header also found throughout most all her different social media platforms.
To add a little variety to the norm heading titles, we organized and labeled her website heading’s with funny titles like, “Du-Jour, 411, Stalk, Watch, Pix, and Holler.” We instituted a blog, contact section, stalk her across a myriad of social media platforms and highlighted her Performance Calendar and Instagram pictures at bottom of each page of her website.
We’re very happy and thankful for the opportunity to assist Melanie Baldonado on this project.
“A DAY IN THE LIFE OF…” is a mini documentary profiling Republic Design Company and it’s Principal, (me), “Rafael_Republic.”
With the help of Javier Ordoñez and Jonathan (“Johnny Savage“) Avila of Basic Space Studio; the dynamic duo filmed and edited this mini documentary and helped Republic Design Company bring this project to fruition.
Now-a-days, having a website isn’t enough. The power of video across thee Internet is rapidly becoming a formidable tool that all businesses should employ if having a web presence is vital to a company’s viability. The SEO (Search Engine Optimization) opportunities and capabilities of having a video profiling a (your) company is near astronomical.
With this in-mind, the problem we posed ourselves was, “how do we show existing and perspective clients what Republic Design Company does.” Moreover, “how can Republic Design Company demonstrate ‘graphic design’ in a relatable, tangible light to a perspective viewer?” The seemingly easy solution actually turned-out to be more difficult than anticipated. The reason being is that there are lots of ways to answer these “problems.” The answer we selected was to employ an honest/natural approach by being casual and informative of “Republic Design Company’s day-to-day operations…” The result is the video you see before you…

“We thank you for your attention, and not to mention, your love and affection…”
