Today we had a lecture with Ian Anderson, founder of Designers Republic in Sheffield. He spoke about his long successful career in design and also how he became a designer. Ian studied Philosophy at degree level but found it hard to keep up with the course due to his busy schedule with his band. Luckily for us, Ian fell into graphic design in the 80’s and has been going strong ever since.
We managed to keep going because the phone never stopped ringing, we’re incredibly lucky. – Ian Anderson
One popular piece which came from Designers Republic was a publication which is now very rare to find. A recent copy of this publication sold on ebay for $600.
