first write an abstract. After we agree on the abstract, you either write an outline or write a draft of the article, depending on your comfort level. Length of design articles varies depending on the topic. Typical range is between 500 and 1,2 00 words, but can be longer or shorter, if necessary. Three to five pieces of art is typical. Blog diagrams and photos usually work best, and they should be at least 2 x 3 inches at 300 dpi.
Articles that meet our standards will appear on DesignNews.com. The best place to start for a contributed design article is to pitch your idea to any one of our editors. Chris Wiltz can point you toward the most appropriate Design News editor.
Please note that due to the volume of submissions we cannot respond to every query or submission. If we are interested we will get in contact with you as soon as possible.
