The consultancy, which started in 1986, went out of business in 2009 only to make an almost immediate resurgence.
It has garnered quite a reputation working on big brands but most memorably has designed for Warp Records, Pulp, Wipout and Gatecrasher.
Now The Designers Republic tell us they are ‘selling off rather then selling out,’ which means you can get your hands on rare t-shirts, records, flyers, posters and books.
The show TDR Car Booty Affair – Nothing Is Forever, Everything Must Go is in many ways a retrospective of the Sheffield based studio and its philosophy of ‘communication by any means necessary.’
The Designers Republic is calling it ‘a sale of artifacts rather then a display of art’ and wants to be clear that this is a chance to see and buy ‘rediscovered treasure,’ rather than ‘a communication of ideas.’
The TDR Car Booty Affair Nothing is For Ever Everything Must Go, will be on at A Month Of Sundays Gallery, 365 Sharrow Vale Road, Sheffield, S11 from 6 October-3 November.
