designboom is based in milan, beijing and new york and has gained a global reach of 4 million readers and 450,000 newsletter subscribers.

founded in milan in 1999, designboom is the world’s first and most popular digital architecture and design magazine. media is still the connective tissue of society, and compared to 1999, the internet has come a long way. during this time, creating a digital publication was still primarily the business of tech-savvy nerds but online publishing has gone from something abstract to being a central element in how many of us live and work. today, when people are searching for something, they’ll look it up online.

designboom aims to bring together professional and young creatives from a diverse range of backgrounds. by publishing the latest news and key issues in the fields of architecture, design, technology and art, our mission over the past 18 years has remained the same: unearthing the best projects and curating a selection of the most interesting aspects of contemporary culture…before you can find it anywhere else.

today, designboom is a comprehensive source with over 45,000 articles worth of useful information and insightful interviews, studio visits, documentation of new products, reviews of exhibitions and books, and historical surveys.
