The Design Files started up in early 2008, and has since snowballed into the site you see here today. It’s been an incredible ride!  In 2009, not long after launching, The Design Files was named by The Times (UK) as one of the world’s Top 50 design blogs. We’ve been featured in countless publications including The Age, The Good Weekend, Urbis (NZ), Design Quarterly, Inside Out Magazine, Real Living Magazine, Dwell (USA) and Rue Magazine (USA) to name a few.

The Design Files’ editor Lucy Feagins has contributed design news and feature stories to various Australian magazines including Inside Out, The Age Melbourne Magazine and The Saturday Paper, and is fortunate to be asked to speak regularly at design industry, retail and publishing events. Lucy has also appeared on TV (The Block) and radio (Triple JJJ, ABC Radio) in recent years as a result of the immense success of The Design Files.

The Design Files covers Australian design in all its forms – from architecture and interiors to gardens, food, fine art and craft.  Regular features on the site include Australian Homes every Wednesday, Tasty Tuesday every Tuesday, and Interviews with talented local creative people every Friday.

We are passionate about producing the very best original content, daily.
