The Pen Guy Recycle Pens Flyer Design by Costas Schuler

The Pen Guy’s Million Pen Recycling Flyer

The Pen Guy’s Million Pen Recycling flyer is finally designed and ready to be placed along side the new Pen Recycling Barrels place in locations around Sonoma County for people to donate their old pens. I needed a poster that was easy to understand and fun to read so I used Grobold Medium for that purpose that had a fun cartoon quality to it. I also created a new pen recycling logo that hopefully says “recycle pens” in Illustrator from scratch, no clip art here.

The flyer was created so people who want to start a pen drive at their business or school can down load it, print it and post it up in a prominent location. I also made it so you can pretty much see it from space especially the phrase “Recycle Pens Here”. Also at the bottom I added a space for a hand written time and date for when the Pen Guy will be appearing for a visit with the Mercedes Pens Art Car. Email the pen guy if you want to set up and start a pen drive at your location.

Secret Service Tour at Redwood Covenant Church – 4×6 Flyer

This project came along last week to promote a local free concert called the “Secret Service Tour” at Redwood Covenant Church September 2, 2009 from 6-9pm. The four bands playing are Abandon Kansas, Sleep for Sleepers, Hazel and Vine and local band Surrendered. The concert is sponsored by Playit4Word, and RCC.

When I was told the name of the project I went into full creative mode and was able to come up with the initial idea within 3.5 hours, WOW. There are times such as these that the creative flow is there 100% and it becomes and effortless experience for me to create. Others times its like pulling teeth. When they told me about the title of the concert, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The phrase “secret service” launched me into the idea of creating a secret agent file complete with photos and operational info. I love the details of this piece such as the Polaroid photo treatment, paper clips, the label maker font and the old folder file. Do you feel like going on a secret mission to a free concert? I do.
