Design Week is a UK-based website, formerly a magazine for the design industry. It was first published in October 1986 by Centaur Communications [1] According to the Audit Bureau of Circulations primary circulation for 2007 was 8,074.[2] In 2011, Design Week became a digital-only publication.[3][4]


Design Week is a business publication as distinct from design-focused publications like Wallpaper and Creative Review. Its competitors include Brand Republic and Marketing Week. Its readers come from commercial design disciplines which range from retail, products and packaging to graphics, interiors, exhibitions and digital.

The founding editor of Design Week was Jeremy Myerson and the title was edited for more than 20 years by Lynda Relph-Knight. The current editor is Angus Montgomery.

Back issues to 1995 include contemporary design news and interviews/retrospectives of noteworthy but not widely known designers since c.1960, e.g. Raymond Hawkey[5] and Frank Stephenson.[6]
