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.

The Pen Guy 4×6 Postcard

The Pen Guy 4×6 postcards have been out now since last summer and so far I still have 8000 of them to give out. One of the goals of this project was to continue the “Pen Guy” brand and explain the story of the Mercedes Pens as a road trip spanning the last 3.5 years. The art on the back was from another project that never happened and felt it was a shame to waste all that time. So I actually recycled some design work for the first time ever, but it seemed to make sense in this case. I basically stopped short of the kitchen sink and put all the info I needed to have and I got some feedback saying it was too busy. I meant it that way, because if you noticed the car is pretty much the same way. I also added some important quotes along the way that came out of the buildings, and a few road signs as well. The ironic thing is that I got shot in the eye with a marker the day these came out, ironic since I had put up a sign on the back that said “caution flying pens”. Full story here.
