In order to make Designers Today totally awesome, it needs your voice and your participation. Here's a partial list of some of the ongoing topics we are covering in our magazine and blogs.
NEW SHOWROOMS & STORES
Have you opened up a new trade showroom, retail shop, or some clever and creative combination of both? If so send a few images and tell us about your new space.

You've earned your stripes working at other design firms and then your gut told you to take the LEAP and strike out on your own. This tale of hard work and chutzpah never gets old.
WHERE DESIGNERS WORK
Is your office or design studio an inspiring place to be? Do you have ingenious methods for organization worth sharing or bragging about? Is your pin board a gorgeous sight to behold?
Are you or have you been a mentor? Are you or have you been a mentee? These relationships are proving vital in the design industry and we're super curious about how yours came to be and what the benefits are.
We know that internships are popular in the design world? What is the recipe for a great internship? Does your firm routinely hire interns? Did you have an internship that turned into a full-time job? While we'll focus more on success stories, a few dramatic horror stories are also welcome.
A designer’s path is more often than not circuitous and dotted with peaks and valleys. If you wish to diagram your personal journey to design, we’d love to see it. For this page, we want a hand-crafted creation that illustrates your journey PLUS one paragraph that describes it.

THE RIGHT HAND
Your Right Hand (and left too!): Tell us about that indispensable go-to person in your design firm who knows it all and thankfully so. It's always the designer that gets all the recognition and we think there's room to tell the story of those people right beside them.
Of course, in addition to the topics and themes above which are ongoing and sort of like rolling admissions at a university, we are also interested in the beautiful and meaningful spaces that you create for clients and self. Our appetite for quality content and intriguing visuals is constant. With the right mix of your contributions, Designers Today is destined to inform, educate, inspire and move us all.
