Ian Anderson

About

Born (1961) before England won the World Cup in Croydon, London’s erstwhile orbital city of the future.

Ian studied Philosophy at The University of Sheffield 1979–1982. As a designer he is self taught.

He declared The Designers Republic on Bastille Day 1986 in Sheffield AKA SoYo™ North of Nowhere™.

TDR’s work is credited with defining the visual language of dance music, electronic and the Playstation gaming generation post-flagship title WipEout. Ian has worked with  architects such as Sadar + Vuga, built environment developers Urban Splash and RREEF, fashion designers such as Issey Miyake and currently Rick Owen, and has developed global branding campaigns, identities and Special Projects for the likes of Coca Cola, Sony (including Aibo), Nokia, Telia, MTV and Nike.

In 1994 Rudy Vanderlans dedicated an entire issue of Emigre Magazine to TDR. In 1996 TDR had their first NYC show at Artists Space. In 2001, their book 3D>2D was the biggest selling UK architecture book. In 2006 Ian was co-curator of Echo City, The British Pavilion at the 10th Venice Biennale for Architecture.

In 25 years Ian has lectured to over 70,000 people around the world, had over 25 ‘solo’ TDR exhibitions, launched The Peoples Bureau For Consumer Information and The Pho-ku Corporation, had a good time but still not managed to finish the TDR book.

Anderson currently continues to run The Designers Republic, and is also Creative Director (comms) for EXD (The Lisbon Biennale) and The Sheffield International Documentary Film Festival, a patron of Site Gallery, is a writer of columns, educator (running Design Thinking courses at Universities in Manchester and Sheffield), a shown artist and when the moon is full, a DJ.
