Looks like this Tuesday the Designers Republic closed their doors down, according to CR. Looking back at their work now would be semi-interesting still, but seeing it first hand was a pleasure. From buying lps to dropping out of school, tDR was a huge inspiration to me. I remember when the Emigre Issue 29 came out, design started to click for me. Seeing a company that could operate in the mainstream and also be ‘underground’ was a huge thing back in the day. They constantly hit hard with every project and inspired me to always do something different. Rest in Peace.
