The Australian design community’s leading industry magazine re-launches with a new look and a new editorial vision
October 16th, 2012
“In these challenging times for the design profession, how can we get more creative in managing our business, in creating added value for our clients and in forging the most effective communications with our suppliers?” – Alice Blackwood, Editor, DQ magazine
Indesign Publishing Group is pleased to announce the re-launch of long-standing design industry publication, Design Quarterly (DQ) magazine.
With a loyal and long-standing readership of architects, designers, specifiers, and design retailers and suppliers across Australia and abroad, DQ takes audiences behind the scenes of the Australian architecture and design community, capturing its activities and achievements and reflecting the opinions and views of key members of industry.
In October 2012, Indesign Group launches DQ in a newly re-mastered format of slimmer, sleeker proportions, under a re-invigorated editorial vision that sees the magazine venture deeper into the design community to bring readers more business and brand-related news, more analysis and opinion, more discussion and trade talk, and more from the movers and shakers in Australian design and architecture.
Expanding on the new look format and re-focused editorial content, DQ Editor, Alice Blackwood, says: “DQ has always aimed to be responsive to the needs and interests of our readers and the market; we have always adapted quickly and flexibly to that constantly changing design environment.
“This major refocus explores the gamut of creativity to include not just the end products, but also how the design profession manages its relationships with clients and suppliers,” she says.
“At every point we consider how we, as a growing design profession, can get more creative in managing our business, and forging the most effective communications with our clients and suppliers.”
The renewed editorial focus will see the magazine feature:
The DQ DESIGNPRENEUR series, encompassing quarterly columns from Byron George of Russell & George as well as behind-the-brand insights into some of the industry’s best-known brands.
Complementing this is the DQ SOURCE section, bringing readers analyses on digital business practices insight into Australian design start-ups and coverage of new industry partnerships between suppliers and brands.
