About Us

PRINT (founded 1940) has long been an iconic design and visual culture brand serving as the go-to industry resource for design dialogue and inspiration, design education, profiles of leading design minds and everything in between. Through our online education and certification programs, our top-ranking website and social media platforms, and one of the most well-respected design competitions in the industry—the PRINT Regional Design Awards—PRINT is the leading authority on all things design today.

PRINT seeks to build a dialogue about design by detailing the intersections of art and culture. Rather than focusing on the how-to of design, the experts who write for PRINT cover the why—why the world of design looks the way it does, how it has evolved, and why the way it looks matters.

To fulfill its mission, PRINT focuses on a broad stroke of visual culture today, covering everything from publication design to interactive work, motion graphics, corporate branding, exhibitions, illustration and socially conscious design.

PRINT is bold. Distinguished. Challenging. Experienced. Savvy. In printed form, Print won five National Magazine Awards—the industry’s highest honor.

As the design world has evolved over the decades, PRINT has been right there with it, and will continue to evolve to bring its readers the best design writing from the most prominent authors, legends and critics in the field today. Print’s contributing editors and regular writers include such top design thinkers as Michael Dooley, Steven Heller, Ellen Shapiro, Paul Shaw, Jude Stewart and more.
