Are you interested in contributing to Design News? If you’d like to submit a blog, contact Executive Editor Jennifer Campbell with your idea. We are pretty liberal with the topics for blogs. In general, they have to be of interest to our readers professionally, and they can promote your company and/or its products. Length can vary widely, depending on the topic and depth.

Submit a short bio and a headshot of the author with the blog.
