TDR - Closes :-(

On Tuesday last week The Designers Republic closed for business :-( The highly influential design company inspired
a whole generation of graphic designers over their 23 years in the game. One thing I always admired about the company
was their refusal to move to London, or open an office there to be closer to their clients and industry. I'm sure there
will be a lot of retrospectives to them this month, so I won't go into the iconic work they have created over the years.
For me the company was never the same after Michael C Place left and set up Build, after helping to create such
an iconic look and style it was hard for them to then find their voice again.
