BRAND FUTURISTS: A TEAM PLATO WOULD ENDORSE _Plato held the belief that different personality types were best suited for different tasks. We've assembled our team with that ideal in mind - a harmonious union of highly skilled individuals around that vision: GUARDIANS, IDEALISTS, ARTISANS AND RATIONALS or Logistics, Strategy, Creative and Analytics.
Department Of Guardians
Practical and down-to-earth, Guardians follow the rules and cooperate with others. They are meticulous about schedules and have a sharp eye for proper procedures. Guardians’ natural talent for managing make them the cornerstone of the team.

As The Republik's Chairman and CEO Robert is proud of the tremendous recognition The Republik receives. Fast Company named The Republik a finalist in its 2002 annual listing the top 50 Fast Companies to watch, while CMYK magazine called The Republik the new agency model by which all others will be measured. The industry's best advertising shows including the New York Art Director's Club, the One Show, the Andy's, the Clio's...you name it.

Department Of Artisans
Artisans have exceptionally keen senses and rare creative ability. They will often strike off boldly down roads that others might consider risky or impossible, doing whatever it takes, rules or no rules, to accomplish their goals. Within the team they can be irresistibly charming.
Dylan Bost
Minister of Creative
Dylan Bost’s mind works like this: design+thinking+doing. What does that mean for The Republik? It means it’s not unique for him to offer profoundly unique concepts by merging and melding opportunity with technology, innovation with leadership. It means over two decades of hardcore doing in design, marketing and management (so phrases like ‘product lifecycle’ ‘sales acceleration’ and ‘online outreach’ are practically tattooed on the back of his hand).

He’s touched industries that rarely touch each other–banking, sports marketing, software, real estate, entertainment, healthcare, and his impact has been nearly $1 billion in the real-estate category alone. While Disney is wondering where their magic went–it left the building with Dylan’s precise and inventive mind.
