Our client wanted an identity that would reflect the print tradition. We approached the design using the 'mast head' style found in traditional newspapers as a basis. The concept of the word 'republic' led us to the 'retro-soviet' style red star and laurel along with the signature red-black-grey colours. The modern rounded type echoes the hi-tech subject matter of the website.
As part of our overall solution, we developed an in-house editor's network which handled all new content from 20+ authors and provided easy to use methods for reviewing, commenting and publishing both online and in print. Our original design for the website has long since gone, but you can see the current website here.
