About

Design is Kinky, an iconic site in the art and design community, is turning 20 years old in 2018. 

Twenty years featuring and supporting talented artists, designers, illustrators, photographers, film makers, and more, to inspire Design is Kinky viewers.

It's been an amazing ride, and we thought what better way to celebrate than to create a book to take offline what we have been doing online. The book, like the site, will showcase creative work from established and up-and-coming artists from around the world.

The 20th Anniversary book will also include the history of Design is Kinky. How it started whilst dial-up modems were hi-tech, before Google was launched, before blogs were called blogs, before online social media even existed. Yes, we're that old, and proud of it!

We'd love to have your support to fund the book. Check below for more information about the project and the Rewards we have on offer. Thanks!

The Book

The Design is Kinky 20th Anniversary book will be a 200+ page beautifully designed and printed full colour publication that will also come snuggly fitted into a slipcase. It will be 210mm wide by 275mm high (8.3 x 10.3 inches).

The book will include a section on the history of Design is Kinky and will also be full of inspirational artwork (see below for a list of artists).

Artists

We are very excited to include a group of amazingly talented artists in the Design is Kinky 20th Anniversary book. Check the list below, it's going to be amazing!

(Please note this list may change slightly or be added to before the book is published)

Our Rewards

We've put together a great list of Rewards that you can purchase to help support the publication.

About Design is Kinky

Launched in 1998, Design is Kinky is an online hub for art, design, illustration, photography, film, exhibitions, events and other creative news. We have linked to and supported tens of thousands of artists and projects since the sites inception and continue to do so today. Design is Kinky was a blog before there were blogs, highlighting industry news and projects to help other creatives stay in the loop. 

Design is Kinky was responsible for the creation of the Semi-Permanent events and has also published two magazines, Empty and Take.

Risks and challenges

We have very carefully researched our partners who will be working closely with us to provide the printing and shipping services and do not see any risks at this time in fulfilling the funding goals if the campaign is successful.

We have more than twenty years of experience as print designers and have created and published over 50 magazines and books. We do not foresee any risks or challenges with the production, design and printing.
