About Us

DesignDawgs is an online magazine started in 2005 by David Merrell as a way to inspire conversations about design across all areas of life.

Our editorial and offline events keep to these Core Values …

  • We believe that design has no borders. Great design is great design. Period.
  • We are curious. It’s our passion to find and tell the stories behind great design and the people who create it.
  • We inspire excellence by starting and stoking inclusive conversations about all aspects of design.
  • We champion discovery, inspiration, innovation and community.
  • We are professionals talking to professionals, artists talking to artists
