I just read at FFF that The Designers Republic closed it’s doors this week on Tuesday after 23 years in the design business. I was really sad to hear it. TDR was one of the first shops I discovered when I was still very young, around 19 or so, during college and said to myself, ‘I want to do that’.

I think they were a huge influence on a lot of us in the late 90’s, and I know many of us would not have been spurred on to become¬† graphic designers had it not been for their guiding inspiration.

Needless, to say times are tough right now, and it has been sad to see not just TDR, but a lot of great places closing their doors. We will miss you TDR, and thank you for being such a lasting source of inspiration and creating such beautiful design work. You will be sorely missed and never forgotten.
