Meet the Magazine: Design Anthology
Australian, Hong-Kong based, interior designer, Suzy Anetta, is Editor in Chief at Design Anthology. Design Anthology is Asia’s premier English-language interiors, design, architecture and built environment magazine, and is independently published four times a year. We have recently become a proud stockist of Design Anthology and asked Suzy to answer some questions to give us a bit of insight into what led her to establish this awesome magazine...
In five steps, can you summarise the path that led you to start your magazine?
I grew up reading books and magazines - they were my connection to the outside world in the pre-internet age.
I started writing a blog (studioannetta.com) back in about 2007 and the readership grew organically amongst the international design community.
I couldn't find any other magazines within Asia that I really wanted to read.
We are totally independent and self-financed, so once I convinced Phil we should do it, it was just a matter of registering the publication with the HK government to get an ISSN number and then finding a graphic designer. From there we found writers, photographers, printers, distributors etc.
We launched Design Anthology in April of 2014, just 6 months after really finally decided to give it a go.
