Disegno – Number 21
Disegno is the world’s leading quarterly journal dedicated to long-form independent reporting and critical writing on design. Released in April, June, September and November, Disegno includes a mixture of reportage, photoessays, profiles, critical discussion, interviews, reviews and roundtables.
Covering design, architecture, fashion, urbanism, graphics and technology, Disegno also provides political commentary, academic analysis, arts photography and discussion of current affairs for a design-interested audience. Alongside its quarterly journal, Disegno also runs an events programme that includes workshops, lectures, walks, panel discussions, podcasts, exhibitions and parties. Disegno’s website is also updated daily with breaking news from the design world.
