    In each poster, the pink Angryman symbol has been upturned and is tumbling downwards in reference to the colloquial term ‘Down Under’. The green poster recasts elements taken from iconic Australian logos, while the yellow poster subverts the famous TDK Electronics logo, turning TDK into TDR. The Designers Republic are well known for mixing images from Japanese culture and ‘subvertised’ corporate logos into their work.
