The Designer’s Republic

With the fairly resent resurgence of "maximalism" and experimental digital typography in graphic design, I was reminded of one of my earliest influences — The Designer's Republic out of Sheffield, England. With their formative aesthetic from the early 1990's being a shotgun blast of pixels, logo sampling and general digital layering mayhem...all systematically planned of course (or seemingly). I think they were one of the inventors of this "controlled chaos" style. They designed many influential album covers for groundbreaking artists such as The Orb, Pop Will Eat Itself, LFO amongst many others. I am very happy to hear/see that founder Ian Anderson is still going strong and continuing to lead the pack (once again) in the 2020's. You can learn more about Ian and tDR here.
