The Designers Republic
I don't know why I'm just learning about this now, but apparently Sheffield, UK based design firm The Designers Republic have shut their doors.
tDR were immensely influential in the design world. During my brief stint in the graphic world in the late 90's/early 00's, they we're the top of the heap and were the ones we looked towards for experimental cues. You could probably see traces of their aesthetic within the work or yours truly. To me they were basically a visualization or electronic music during that time and not just because they designed the covers of many of the canonical releases of that time. It was a visualization of sound and space.

Wrought with complications and misadventures, been left for dead to spend eternity dormant with lenses shut off, been given numerous new leases on life and finally has given us some of the most breathtaking images of The Universe when it felt up to it: Hubble
Tim Hecker "An Imaginary Country"
.. and really captures something I'm feeling right now.
P.S. I did not upload this, I simply did a basic Google search.
