Designers Republic

01Jan08

Argh! The line spacing on this website is stressing me out. There’s no real composition to the layout at all. And the links are all too close together! I like little flashing man though. So far from the home page I can see one piece of work which is a projection similar to an artist called Ian De Gruchy, check him out. I’m looking at their work though now and they have done a fair bit! They have designed all the Gatecrasher CD covers, done work for Nickelodeon, MTV and Pringles.

I do like their work though, I like it because its simple, and it gets the message and the ideology that Gatecrasher wants to give to its audience. The following quote is taken from artandculture.com – “The Designers Republic creates images that make the most jaded consumer a sucker for packaging. The work is playful in every sense: bright, candy-colored compositions with anime cartoon children running rampant; it’s like Hello Kitty playing laser tag.

A man called Ian Anderson founded Designers Republic in 1986 “Its anti-established design aesthetic incorporates youthful images (cartoon characters and spaceships) and juicy colors (fuchsia, lemon, and turquoise) into a special brand of pop propaganda.” (taken from the same site) Which is true because most of their clients have been company’s that target their products to younger people.
