To us, design is more than aesthetics: design is a mindset to solve problems and jump hurdles.

Makers, sketchers, builders, researchers, coders, thinkers: we spoke to all of them and they told us that good design lies in the perfect balance of functionality, aesthetics and innovative thinking.

We seek inspiring stories by rising stars or experienced professionals, read through their words in our interviews to be at the forefront of the industry.

We meet people where they are, we scout ideas where they’re born.​ We partner with the main design ​events​ worldwide to bring you the best of the local scenes.
