Dezeen has opened for business in New York! We now have an editorial team based in the city producing content about architecture and design in the United States, which can be found at www.dezeen.com/usa.
The move is part of our ambition to grow Dezeen's audience and business in North America.
"The USA is already home to our second biggest readership after the UK," said Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs. "Opening an office in New York is just the start of our plan to significantly grow our coverage of architecture and design in the States and become a global brand."
Dezeen now has two highly experienced editors based in New York. Our senior US editor is Jenna M McKnight, an accomplished architecture journalist whose previous roles include editor-in-chief at Architizer and news director at Architectural Record. She lives in Brooklyn.
Jenna is joined by US editor Alan Brake. A design journalist, editor, and critic, Alan was formerly executive editor of The Architect's Newspaper and has written for titles including Metropolis, Architectural Record and the New York Times.
Our team has a temporary residency at the new Moooi Brand Store at 36 East 31st Street in Manhattan, where we will be working this week during NYCxDesign and the International Contemporary Furniture Fair as well as holding our launch party from 6-8pm on Saturday 16 May (invitation only).
Dezeen also has a stand this week at designjunction edit New York, which runs from 15 to 18 May 2015 at ArtBeam, 540 West 21st Street, NY10011.
The stand will sell our books, give away coveted Dezeen New York stickers, promote our recruitment site Dezeen Jobs and, to celebrate the launch of the Apple Watch, offer a free apple to anyone who promises to buy a watch from Dezeen Watch Store!
On the business front, we have appointed Sara Jaurequi as our US sales representative. Sara, who has previously worked for Whitewall magazine and Daily Motion, will lead our business development on the other side of the Atlantic as Dezeen becomes a global organisation.
